At the time of this post's initial writing, it is the 21st day of the 21st year of the 21st century and actually in the midst of a 10-day period where we will witness in palindrome with the number's making up each day's date being in the same sequence whether it is read forwards or backwards. So on these auspicious days, it makes the most sense to share the backstory on a business initiative of ours that was about 5 years in the making: launching an e-commerce arm to our business that was mutually beneficial to our customers and those garnering such a title, all the while being sustainable to our business.
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 Summer is winding down, a refreshing beverage tends to help some folks cool down, and if you're like us you wonder how the bottle label was made. Or maybe you are facing a new project and find yourself feeling a bit overwhelmed? When it comes to custom label projects, it's easy to feel that way, because there are just so many factors to consider! While this is especially true in the world of Custom Bottle Labels, we at SixB Labels hope to simplify your labeling process and answer nine frequently asked questions below. And if you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to reach out!
Custom bottle labels have to suit bottles with a broad spectrum of sizes, shapes and materials. Some of the uses for custom bottle labels include:

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!
Point 1: Knowing What a Die-Cut Label Is
Normally, die-cut labels are created by using a shaped cutting tool, as you would use a cookie cutter or pastry cutter, to slice through the material. This may produce a finished product with rounded rather than square corners, (square corners are more likely to catch on things than round) and one that is generally easy to apply. Often, a custom die-cut label project requires the production of a label that does not conform to any standard shape but is instead based on a wide variety of images, such as a ribbon shape for an anniversary seal, a triangle, heart, or football, or some other custom shape.
For anyone who wants to create a new custom packaging label, there are certain steps to take to ensure that the label will be effective.

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.
