According to John McKay, FLAG president and founder, “We’re thrilled that Star Tag & Label, Inc. has recognized the power of the FLAG community and joined our organization. We strive to provide opportunities for companies like Star Tag & Label, Inc. to be more competitive in the marketplace and become a stronger company without sacrificing any of their independence.”
The primary goal of FLAG is to deliver bottom-line savings to its Members on roll label substrates, inks, tooling, pre-press, digital, shipping and more. FLAG negotiates national vendor contracts, leveraging the buying power of all its label converter members. These group savings incentives deliver bottom-line savings to its Members while providing sales opportunities to its Vendor Partners.
Additionally, FLAG group members – with an average size of $2 to $20M – realize the type of benefits usually enjoyed by larger multi-site converting conglomerates. These include catastrophic recovery plans, penetrating new markets and application niches, and having access to new resources. These benefits are delivered through a 24/7 online resource site, small peer groups, quarterly calls and an annual meeting.
Long-time FLAG member Shawn Werbitt, president of Montreal-based label manufacturer Pazazz, comments: “FLAG has been really beneficial not only on the monetary side but also with networking. I’ve made contacts all over the USA, which now gives me the ability to tell my clients, ‘I have resources across the country to accommodate your needs.’ I would recommend – better yet, insist – that potential converters become a member today and not wait any longer.”
FLAG will be exhibiting in Booth 1557 at Labelexpo Americas. Member companies and Vendor Partners will staff the booth throughout the show to answer any questions. Additionally, FLAG is offering a show special of 50% savings on new member initiation fees to any converter who signs on at the show.
