There are certain real-life scenarios where regular paper simply doesn’t cut it. Sometimes you need your paper to withstand frequent handling, rips, tears, stains and even harsh environmental conditions. Think restaurant menus, ID cards, POP displays, shopping bags, window signage and more.

Time is a precious commodity, and many consumers don’t have a lot of it to make a well-thought out decision about a product. Did you know that most in-store purchase decisions are made at the point of sale? This is where the power of the product label comes into play.
