Cut & Stack Labels

Cut and stack labels, also known as wet-glue labels or glue-applied labels, are a type of labeling solution commonly used in various industries for product packaging, branding, and marketing purposes. Unlike pressure-sensitive labels that adhere directly to surfaces, cut and stack labels are affixed to products using adhesives such as glue or paste.

Key Features and Characteristics:

Printing Process

Cut and stack labels are typically printed on large sheets using offset or flexographic printing presses. The labels are then die-cut into individual shapes and sizes before being stacked for application.

Adhesive Application

Once cut, the labels are stacked and applied to products using a wet-glue or paste adhesive. The adhesive is activated by moisture, allowing the labels to adhere securely to various surfaces, including glass, plastic, metal, and paperboard.

Customization Options

Cut and stack labels can be customized with various design elements, including logos, branding, product information, graphics, and images. They are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors, and finishes to suit different packaging requirements and branding preferences.

Substrates and Materials

Cut and stack labels can be printed on a variety of substrates, including paper, synthetic materials, and specialty stocks. The choice of material depends on factors such as durability, moisture resistance, and aesthetic appeal.

Application Equipment

Applying cut and stack labels typically requires specialized labeling equipment, such as rotary or linear labelers equipped with glue application systems. These machines ensure accurate label placement, consistent adhesive application, and high-speed labeling for efficient production.

Applications of Cut and Stack Labels:

Beverage Packaging

Cut and stack labels are commonly used for labeling bottles, cans, and containers in the beverage industry, including beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks, and juices. They provide full-wrap coverage, brand visibility, and product differentiation on crowded store shelves.

Food Packaging

Cut and stack labels are also popular for food packaging applications, such as labeling jars, cans, boxes, and pouches. They are used for branding, product identification, nutritional information, and regulatory compliance in the food and snack industry.

Household Products

Cut and stack labels are widely used for household products, including cleaning agents, personal care items, cosmetics, and toiletries. They convey product features, usage instructions, safety warnings, and branding elements to consumers.

Pharmaceuticals and Health Care

Cut and stack labels play a crucial role in pharmaceutical packaging, where precise labeling and regulatory compliance are essential. They provide product information, dosage instructions, warnings, and barcodes for tracking and traceability.

Cut and stack labels offer a versatile and cost-effective labeling solution for a wide range of products and industries. They provide customizable branding opportunities, secure adhesion, and efficient application, making them a popular choice for packaging and labeling needs.
