As we now enter the final quarter of 2020, SixB Labels looks back with satisfaction over the last four years of accolades received from the Printing & Imaging Association of MidAmerica, a regional division of the larger organization, Printing Industries of America (PIA), covering Texas, Oklahoma Kansas and Missouri. The SixB Labels Family is pleased to be members in good standing with PIA. And we are just as happy to be the recipient of a number of custom label printing awards from this body, because there is no better compliment than respect from a jury of one's peers— the reward for our proud participation in the PIA.
As we enter the 20s of the 21st Century it will be interesting to see how spectacular the decade will truly be. The SixB Labels family is optimistic about what the new year and decade will bring. Trade shows have their own "roaring" natures and for being one of the largest annual packaging events, WestPack Anaheim is no exception. This is why we are happy to exhibit in Booth 5152 from February 11-13, 2020 at the Convention Center. We invite you to join us, and if by any chance you won't be in Southern California on these dates, ask you to stay tuned for some offers we will also make available to you, our blog readers!

Client Chats Series — Our client company, Dallas Distilleries, maker of the Herman Marshall brand of Texas whiskies, hides in plain sight off the main road in Garland, Texas, amid sprawling warehouses in a business park. Behind an unassuming façade, fronted by a shop selling whiskey by the bottle, sits a cavernous space full of open-top cypress fermentation tanks and white oak casks, where a big gleaming pot still, like an engine from a steampunk movie, holds pride of place.
I participated in one of their weekend tours, full of history, chemistry and fun. We listened to an account of how the whiskey is made, sampled bottled products, including bourbon and rye, and tasted the sour mash as well as the white dog — the new whiskey before it is aged. Along with other customers, I got to fill, cork, and label the bottle of bourbon I bought. Then Herman Beckley, who leads the tours, sat down with me to share some more details of their company’s history and explain how their experience working with SixB Labels has helped them to showcase and sell their products.
Folks have been talking about the death of trade shows for decades and yet they are still going strong. At SixB Labels we like to put the morbidity to the side and make ourselves available for more start-ups, as well as small businesses and global companies, and are going back to one of the largest annual packaging events, WestPack Anaheim, exhibiting in Booth 5154 from February 5-7, 2019 at the Convention Center.
Our focus for the 2019 WestPack trade show is essentially to be available for those businesses starting up and/or in a transition phase, unsure what their next step is, who could use some inspiration for their labeling operations, as well as for those businesses whose programs are established and open to another provider path. In all scenarios, we are available to be the labeling source for businesses' labeling operations, regardless of their company size or prospective order volume.
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, WestPack, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center, Booth 5474, February 6-8, 2018.
As 2017 comes to a close, we look back at one of the year's highlights for SixB Labels. This year, SixB Labels was recognized by the Printing & Imaging Association of MidAmerica (a regional division of the Printing Industries of America) by receiving two Graphic Excellence (GraphEx) Certificates of Merit . These Best of Category awards are within the areas of Flexo and Digital Printing for labels we manufactured on behalf of Herman Marshall and Central Market, respectively.
The word meaningful only begins to describe how honored and excited the SixB Family is to have received these awards. It is particularly special to garner this acknowledgement of excellence from our peers in the printing industry!
SixB Labels is set for an interactive experience February 7-9 atBooth 5484 during the 2017 WestPack Expoat Anaheim Convention Center. Thousands of packaging professionals are expected to participate in three days of sourcing, networking and education.

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.
SixB Labels is set for an interactive experience February 9-11, 2016, at Booth 5470, during the WestPack 2016 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.
