Versatile, cost-effective and long-lasting, we could talk about the benefits of cut & stack labels all day. At Epsen Hillmer Graphics, this is one of the custom label options that we’ve developed quite a passion for.

Having perfected custom labels for more than 100 years in our advanced Omaha label manufacturing facility, if you have questions about cut & stack labels, or any other type of custom label for that matter, we have answers.

You’ve heard us talk a lot about pressure sensitive labels and we love those, too. But, when the conventional paper isn’t the ideal material choice for a label, Epsen Hillmer Graphics’ next versatile alternative is the wet-strength, cut & stack label. This technology lets us bump up to film as the primary label substrate and oftentimes, is the best choice for your custom label project.

Cut & Stack Labels are Versatile

We mentioned that cut & stack labels are versatile, and this is true for many reasons. First, in terms of function, they are designed to be tough and long-lasting. These labels also allow you to get really creative with design.

For example, you can use clear films which allow you to see the product through the label, add high-end finishes such as gloss or textured coatings, use colorful and unique inks, or use a wide variety of other high-end options.

Cost-Effective Labels That Can Survive Harsh Environments

Cut & Stack Labels are ideal for high-volume applications and they are extremely cost-effective for us to produce in our high-tech production facility. In fact, because Epsen Hillmer Graphics’ cut & stack label manufacturing process is so well streamlined, larger quantities of these packaging labels actually become more affordable.

The well-refined processes we use in our Omaha facility result in lower material costs as a result of reduced waste, not to mention the availability of combination printing, which means you can produce a variety of similar product labels in one print run.

For example, if you have a product that is produced in a variety of flavors but share a generally similar label design, Epsen Hillmer Graphics is able to print these personalized yet similar labels in one “ganged” print job to save you money.

Long-Lasting, Moisture Resistant & More

Film labels are also highly moisture resistant and stand up well to humid environments, so where a conventional paper label might not last, a film-based cut & stack label may be just the right custom label choice. Although wet-strength labels are still made from paper-like materials, they are designed to be more water resistant and therefore more durable.
