Hand Sanitizer Labels

Hand Sanitizer Labels by Craft Brewers

With the high demand for hand sanitizer these days, we have found that our local brewers are stepping up to the challenge and making denatured alcohol in their facilities for hand sanitizer.  Right now, in order to allow for the increase in production, the US government through the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is temporarily waiving their need for approvals and certain permits for hand sanitizer formulas as long as it is consistent with World Heath Organization guidelines.

There are a few resources to help navigate the process and make sure that everything is on the up & up since most breweries down’t normally produce denatured (not fit for human consumption) alcohol.  The appropriate denaturants need to be added to brewed alcohol in order to allow it to be produced as hand sanitizer.  Hand sanitizer, because it is not a beverage item, is not subject to the Federal Excise taxes that beer and alcoholic beverages are by the TTB.

Since hand sanitizer is not a brewery’s bread and butter and doesn’t necessarily need as much attention to detail for marketing purposes, it might make more sense to create quick, affordable smaller labels that simply get the job done.  We have thousands of dies in our inventory to cut out our printed labels and help facilitate quick creation and delivery of those labels to you.

Shrink Sleeve and Labels vs. Printed Cans

Canned Wine, Beer and Specialty Drink:
Shrink Sleeves and Pressure Sensitive Labels vs. Printed Cans-

Customers that are interested in 360° top-to-bottom graphics on cans for wine, beer or specialty drinks have three labeling options:

Printed Cans
Shrink Sleeves or
Labels

Printed cans have a high minimum order requirement -100,000 cans at a time, longer lead times – 12 weeks, and can be more expensive for small to mid-size producers who are not buying truckload quantities of a single version. Given the setup charges for art, version charges and split shipment charges for printed cans, it is not always the best choice for brands that want more flexibility with their design, and faster print-to-market solutions, and better graphic and decoration quality.

Shrink sleeves and pressure sensitive labels allow brands to trial different designs in the marketplace easily, add fun and eye catching designs to draw product attention on the shelf, and do so with very short lead-times to react to market needs. They also lower overall cost.

LOWER OVERALL COSTS / SPEED MATTERS

Shrink sleeve and pressure sensitive labels provide the ability to print only what is needed and when it is needed. They also provide the highest quality graphics, shelf value-add and product differentiation.

Our OmniMark Art Management System provides great flexibility to change or upgrade designs literally real-time providing speed to market opportunities. Why wait 4 to 6 weeks to get a design, when you could have it in days?

With shrink sleeve and pressure sensitive labels, clients do not have to invest in vast warehouse space dedicated to printed cans which consume expensive warehouse costs, get damaged through warehousing and material movement and become obsolete as designs change.

COLOR AND DECORATION QUALITY AND VALUE

Shrink sleeve and pressure sensitive labels provide exceptional print quality. Vignettes, background screens, vivid colors and many decoration opportunities are available, from spot varnishes, soft touch varnishes, tactile print and varnish, as well as metallics.  We invest in state-of-art digital and flexo printing equipment to push the limits of print quality and creativity.

Ink that is printed directly on cans appears muted and hazy due to the gray metallic of the can showing through the ink. The print quality simply does not provide the necessary value and shelf appeal. Shrink sleeves and pressure sensitive labels ensure your graphics pop and help your product stand out on the shelf.

Visual Impact

We work with many businesses from small to large. In serving these businesses and their brand, we are spending more and more time explaining the value of unique materials, decorations, printing and converting processes for pressure sensitive and shrink sleeve labels and why a slight increase in a package cost may yield many times the return on investment in the sale of their product.

Today we have the ability to mix and match materials: decorations of foil, spot varnishes, tactile varnishes, soft-touch varnishes and laminates, as well as ink: metallic, fluorescent and a full range of colors to bring innovation, and product appeal to our clients’ packaging. The concept of mass personalization or mass customization are readily available and yield enormous impact to a shrink sleeve or pressure sensitive label.

In addition, the development in material substrates and adhesives to expand recycling opportunities or performance improvement can provide brand owners great flexibility and innovative package designs to engage the consumer. Adhesive repositionability on a product bottle or reseal performance for multi-serve packages from food and cleaning supplies to any part you can image are available now and help ease of use for consumers and extend product freshness or product life.

As the numbers of SKUs in a store continue to grow rapidly, consider these types of materials, decorations or enhancement to increase your products sales.

Contact us if you are interested in samples or pricing on these emerging technologies in product marking and labeling.

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.

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.
