Cheese Labels

With high moisture content during packaging, cheese labels can be rather… difficult.  Our cheese labels are direct food contact safe and come in various materials ranging from wick resistant paper to BOPP.  All sizes of cheese labels are available, from snack size and brick up to full wheels.  Whether hand-applied or machine-applied, we can create rolls or stack labels to best suit your application process.  

Just like we eat food first with our eyes, especially with food packaging, consumers make decisions about choosing new products with their eyes first.  Make your product look its best!  Our HP Indigo 8000 allows us to print with vivid colors along with adding eye-catching embellishments such as foil work, a glossy shine, or even a matte finish to draw in the eye. 

To find out more about labels on your cheese products, get samples or quotes, contact us at info@lauterbachgroup.com or reach someone directly by calling our customer service team at 262-820-8100.

GlobalTranz

Finding the right freight carrier has never been an easy task.  So many different variables come into play when choosing the best carrier to get the job done.  Over the years, the Lauterbach Group has worked hard to develop relationships with vendors that are beneficial to you, our client.  When it comes to LTL shipments, we have relied on our freight broker to find us the best rates, freight lanes and reputable carriers to take your labels from point A to point B.  We know that all carriers aren’t perfect, but we know which ones are the best option for your delivery.

We have noticed in the last couple months that some transit times are increasing across the US due to Covid-19, and we are seeing some carriers that won’t guarantee a specific delivery time frame, but please remember that this is new territory for all of us as we are learning the “new normal” during a pandemic.  We have picked the right people to help support us when it comes to moving freight!

We are excited to share one of our vendors with you.  We use Globaltranz for our too large for LTL or full truck load shipments  and we are pleased to show support of the their newest recognition – Top 10 Freight Brokerage for the 3rd consecutive year!  This is exciting stuff because we all know how many different freight vendors are out in the world.

Reseal & Reclosure

Reseal and reclosure labels are engineered to have a high initial tack allowing for a strong seal, keeping any product contained and fresh. The seal helps prolong the life of produce, deli items, health and beauty goods and dairy.

Unlike zip lock or clam shell reclosure containers, pressure sensitive reseal allows for a simple peel and press to reseal, minimizing the chance of improper sealing or containment issues. The precise die cuts allow for tamper evidence, creating a safe seal and precise barriers for proper sanitary direct food contact.  The print on the reseal film allows companies to display brand imaging with added functionality to keep the product at its finest. 

To inquire about reseal, contact us: info@lauterbachgroup.com  or 262-820-8100.

Spot Varnish

A spot varnish is a special effect that puts varnish only on specific areas of a printed piece. Use spot varnish to make specific areas pop off the label or to create texture.

In this example below from Raised Grain Brewing Company, each individual bubble in this label is spot varnished and has a soft touch textured feel to it.  The label is printed on pressure sensitive foil to also give reflective dimension.

Find out more about our label options by contacting us!

Questions About Resealable Film

In a world where everyone is trying to create less waste, packagers are starting to use resealable film more and more over things like traditional clamshell plastic containers.

Here are a couple of questions to ask yourself before talking with your label producer about reclosure film. Your answers will impact the materials that can or need to be used for the film.

  • What is the material of the packaging that the film will adhere to? PE, RPET, APET, CPET?
  • How many times will your product need to reseal for a customer?
  • Does your product have any dust, oil, juice, condensation, etc. that may get into the seal and impact the seal’s ability?
  • Will you need an oxygen barrier for things like cheese?
  • Will the film need direct or indirect food contact certification?
  • Recyclability?
