CS Labels scooped two awards for its work with the Northern Monk Brew Co "Patrons Project" last year. The unique multi-layered beer can label was awarded "Best Label" at the Digital Printer Awards as well as best "Digital Labels and Packaging" at the recent Flexotech Awards. The work showcases the company’s ability to help clients increase awareness and revenue with appropriate and stunning packaging.
Embellishments for Digital Applications
CS is constantly growing and has undertaken a major investment in a new Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM) in-line hot foiling press, allowing the opportunity to also provide embossing, and spot varnishing to offer extra embellishment capabilities to client label projects. They have also installed a new Ashe Opal Rewind unit to increase their rewind capacity to provide even faster lead times to customers. The solution is designed to work mainly with high-end luxury brands, many of which are switching to digital print due to its personalisation, short run capability and high quality print. CS Labels have seen an increased demand from health and beauty, drinks such as wine and gin, and gifts sectors to name a few as the digital market continues to accelerate at an industry changing pace.
Market leading digital stand-up pouches
CS is well known as innovators in the field of digitally produced stand-up pouches through its CS Flexible Pouches brand. Originally launched at the show two years ago, the company continues to lead the way in this high-growth market and have won several awards for their work. They are available in numerous different materials and finishes; For example, double laminate PET film in a clear construction, or tri laminate PET film in a white construction. They can be manufactured in a "clean room" to be food safe (to the British Retail Consortium standards) and are created using environmentally friendly inks. They also offer all of the known benefits of digital.
“Budding start-ups or existing established brands wanting to excel should come and visit our stand at G15," says Simon Smith, CS Labels Managing Director.
And speaking about their relationship, Northern Monk Brew Co Director, Russell Bisset comments, “Working with CS labels has been great; we look at them as a partner more than a supplier. Their collaborative approach and suggestions on the best way for us to realise our vision of our products has led to us winning numerous awards together. We’re always interested in working with them and looking at innovative uses of the latest technology and advancements they’re investing in.”
