    What are Some of the Biggest Label Trends for 2021?

     As we noted in a recent blog post, as a producer of custom labels, SixB Labels makes a significant, ongoing effort to stay on top of industry trends for our customers. Here of late we have been considering the upcoming year, 2021, with an eye to future trends, which we expect to be an outgrowth of some of what we witnessed in 2020.
     
    The effects of the pandemic have been profound on how business is conducted. They include the change to working from home, virtual meetings, increased online shopping, the move from bigger brands to local suppliers, direct-to-consumer sales, drop shipping, and the growth of smaller online retailers (like our online store).  These trends are here to stay, even after Covid-19 is vanquished.  In the midst of these ongoing challenges, the good news is that the printing industry, and label printing in particular, have proven themselves resilient and flexible — willing and able to embrace change.

    Biodegradable Paper and Repulpable Adhesive: What You Need to Know

    On the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we still believe every day should be a celebration, while taking particular note of the tradition that began in 1970. Eco-friendly printing has been a staple of SixB Labels operations since our early days. 2019's originally posted blog "Why Print Your Labels With FSC-Certified Paper and Water-Based Inks?" explained the reasoning behind our company's use of FSC (Forest Stewardship Certified) paper products and water-soluble inks. It has been a way of providing a cleaner and greener approach to label printing with cost accessibilities.

    As technology and capabilities increase so are our eco-friendly label printing techniques. In this post we will explore more and some newer aspects of this greener approach to printing: the use of biodegradable materials.  We look at biodegradable label parts in the form of:

    • A newer and more sustainable adhesive 
    • Recyclable paper products 
    • The disposal of water-based inks.

    While we dive into this topic below, a short note that SixB Labels is remaining open safely during the current pandemic with more details in our post "We're Here For You" and your business. Please don't hesitate to contact us.
