There really isn’t anything complicated about cut & stack labels and that, in itself makes this custom labeling option ideal for so many product applications. When it gets right down to it, the biggest decision you’ll need to make when ordering cut & stack labels for products is the age-old question: “Paper, or something a little more durable?”

At Epsen Hillmer Graphics, we’ve produced all kinds of cut & stack labels for just about every application imaginable. We love them because they can incorporate a number of design elements including specialty finishes, varnishes, and substrates. They can be a colorful and unique way to differentiate your product in the market.

Let’s explore the basic options to consider when looking at cut & stack labels for your specific product application.

Cut & Stack options begin with a simple paper label

The most basic label option for cut & stack production begins with the paper label. In fact, the basic paper cut & stack label has been used for ages because it is easily printed, versatile, and relatively inexpensive. It will always be one of our most popular product labeling applications we offer at Epsen Hillmer Graphics, but it isn’t ideal for all applications. We can help you identify if the basic paper will fit your needs, or if something a little more durable is called for.

Wet-Strength Labels

Imagine that you are bottling sports beverages that will end up in an ice cooler, or have a health and beauty item that when bottled spends the majority of the time on the ledge of a steamy shower. In these situations, a plain paper cut & stack label doesn’t make sense. That’s okay because versatile options including wet-strength labels can fit the bill. It takes the affordable cut & stack paper label to the next level, adding water resistant properties to make your label long-lasting and durable. Your label professional will want to discuss whether or not your label needs to hold up under moist or high-humidity conditions. If so, wet-strength cut & stack labels may be a great option.

Film Cut & Stack Labels

Many of our customers rave about our cut & stack labels produced on specialty films. There are a variety of options available that look high-end but are remarkably affordable for us to produce in our state-of-the-art label production facility. Film cut & stack labels give a modern, eye-catching personality to your consumer product. Because film labels are clear, it is possible to integrate the colorful qualities of the product itself as part of the overall label design, allowing you to create a truly unique look for your product. Film labels are inherently moisture resistant, so they are also great for those products that must survive in harsh environments such as extreme heat, moisture or cold. Their durability is even one step greater than our wet-strength paper labels.
