Fort Dearborn Company has introduced an innovative Shrinkable Cut & Stack label to its product line. The label combines the application benefits of cut & stack labels with the shelf impact of a shrink sleeve for a winning combination.
With an OPP-based film structure, the label offers up to 15% shrink and overcomes the challenges of traditional cut & stackthat are limited to straight wall container applications. Since the label is provided in cut & stack format, existing cut & stack application equipment with hotmelt adhesives can be used to apply the labels along with a dry heat tunnel.
Typical applications include beverages such as Nestlé Waters’ Aquapod® bubbled-shaped bottle with colorful graphics that’s designed to be fun for kids. The label has a variety of application possibilities including other slightly contoured containers as well as tapered aluminum cans (inventory reduction over preprinted and pre-decorated).
