Automated labeling machine can stop craft beer sales falling flat.
Hand labeling might have worked fine when production was limited to a few hundred bottles, but to win against the still increasing number of microbreweries popping up around the country, you need to get containers labeled quickly, accurately, and consistently.
Adhesive labels must be applied correctly so as not to compromise the presentation quality and critical message to consumers, and at speed to help products get to market quickly.
To meet these objectives microbreweries should be turning to cost-effective automated systems. When you decide to get a labeler, the more difficult decision may be between wrap-around and shrink sleeve labels. That’s why Pack Leader offer both choice for our customers, here's the information you should know of each to help make that choice easier.
Wrap Around Label - for Bottles and Jars

Wrap Around Label
