    7 Ways To Label With SixB

    According to Merriam-Webster, "a slip (as of paper or cloth) inscribed and affixed to something for identification or description" and  " written or printed matter accompanying an article to furnish identification or other information" are just a couple of definitions for the word "label."  But  SixB Labels takes those definitions steps further, to identify multiple ways  those in a variety of industries, from Food and Beverage, to Health and Beauty, Automotive, Luxury, Technology, and beyond,  could utilize our business to produce their labeling program.  Here are basic and then deep dive looks at 7 Ways to Label With SixB.*
    • Blank and Foil-Stamped Labels for Inkjet Printers, such as the Epson C3500 and C7500
    • Blank Labels for Sheet-Fed Inkjet or Laser Printers
    • Digital, Flexo-Printed, Foil Stamped and Embossed Labels, in Rolls or Sheets, Line or Process Work
    • Labels For Single Color Thermal Transfer or Direct Thermal Printers

    WestPack 2018 — What You Want

    Anytime someone asks my father what SixB Labels’ minimum order quantity requirement is, he simply responds, “One.” Now he, Fari Bakhshian, SixB Labels Vice President, is being completely genuine with this statement, believing projects with smaller quantities shouldn’t have barriers to high quality design and functionality. Of course the cost of one label could be the same as 100 labels; and if you really don’t want the other 99, we won’t ship them to you.

    If past years are any indication, this will probably be the No. 1 judgement question we will be asked during one of the largest annual packaging trade shows, WestPacktaking place at the Anaheim Convention Center, Booth 5474, February 6-8, 2018.

    Introducing SixB Labels’ Latest Platform

    We are beyond happy to announce our latest digital marketing platform and site for SixB Labels. Like much of our story, this new age includes a more customer-centric web site, as well as blog and email marketing content customized to the wants of individuals and our markets. Thank you in advance for taking this journey with us!

    Wind Positions Defined


    Wind positions, re-wind, simply wound are terms commonly spoken in the label printing world, although some folks might not be too familiar with what these terms really mean. SixB provides a safe space for all questions, and no one is here to judge you.

    Label roll outputs are commonly wound into one of the eight positions recognized by the labeling industry. The standard is influential for post-label production when rolls are then placed into the likes of printers and applicators for additional packaging processes. Keep in mind that rewind positions are mostly used for machine applications.

    Here are some considerations for making orders where labels will involve machine applications:

    • A Roll Wind Number, based on the image below
    • Inside Core Diameter
    • Maximum Outside Roll Diameter

    WestPack 2016 Recap

    On Monday, February 8th, eager with anticipation, we walked into the Anaheim Convention Center to set up our booth for WestPack 2016, surrounded by colleagues, competitors, forklifts, golf carts and much more.

    The event, which offered us a medley of surprises, ended up being one of our best years yet with the WestPack family.

    Any time we meet someone new, and learn about their business and journey, it is a pretty joyous surprise. Well, we had a happy amount of such situations, meeting with businesses in a variety of industries, including Food, Beverage, Cosmetics, Beauty, Packaging, Electronic, Technology, Manufacturing and beyond. We were also given opportunities to connect with such partners as Sato and Epson, and to share their printers with our booth visitors.


     

    Running Stickers

    Motivation Mondays SeriesAs we continue through the first weeks of 2016, some of us might have let go of exercise-based New Year’s resolutions. To those going strong on such resolutions: power to you, and keep it up! Meanwhile, many in our group are not so physically inclined when it comes to running.

    Blessed Stickers

    You might have seen it on Instagram, Twitter or more recently on Facebook. The trending hashtag “Blessed,” followed by an emoji of two hands coming together, for posts where folks are showing something they tend to be grateful for. We believe our Blessed Stickers are symbolic for our shared vocabulary year-round, and particularly over these next two holiday weeks.

    Stress Stickers

    The Thanksgiving Holiday Week is underway. The optimistic perspective is that family and friends come together to share food, drink and grateful anecdotes.

    Zombie Stickers

    Motivation Mondays Series — Our hearts beat as heavily as that of other viewers of AMC’s The Walking Dead on Sundays. Also, Halloween is no longer the single time of the year to revel in Zombies. So, we came up with a Zombie-related fun approach to those who take less-than-smart actions in our lives. One with Zombie Stickers.

    Event Labels for Angel City Sports

    Non-Profit Corner Series — The story about Event Labels for the non-profit Angel City Sports’ showcase festival and competition, the Angel City Games, is a personal one. A little over 10 years ago, our nephew Ezra was born with physical limb differences. His parents, Bahar and Clayton Frech, immersed themselves in, and introduced our family to, the Adaptive Sports community. Now Ezra — a Track & Field multi-national record holder, Sports Illustrated’s SportsKid of the Year 2014, starting quarterback — is the inspiration of the Angel City Games, where children and adults with physical differences come together and compete to eventually qualify for the Paralympics.
