Technicote Unveils New Digital Product Portfolio
Technicote has expanded our portfolio of digital label products, which are 3-Star Certified to run on HP Indigo presses.
Digital printing technology is revolutionizing the rapidly growing label printing industry. Lower production costs, reduced set-up times, high resolution printing, short to medium run label order flexibility and less impact on the environment are just a few reasons converters are embracing this new technology. Technicote is keeping pace with this demand in the marketplace, growing its qualified digital paper and film substrates for applications such as Wine & Spirits, Specialty Foods,
Nutraceuticals, Health & Beauty, Medical, and Durable Goods.
Technicote has a unique offering in our “Dry Edge” adhesive coating process. It is currently available with most of our digital label products used with HP Indigo digital presses. This 1/8″ adhesive “Dry Edge” on each side of the roll label will significantly reduce the potential for adhesive build up on press. This is an added value option, at no additional cost!

Technicote Launches 2.6 mil Pearl White Polypropylene
In response to customers’ concerns about rising raw material costs, Technicote has developed a “Value Grade” line of polypropylene products to satisfy a variety of prime label applications at an economical price. Although our 2 mil Clear and 2.3 mil White Value Plus BOPP films have been well received by converters throughout the industry, the request for a 2.6 mil Value Grade cavitated film has also been in demand. After several months of R & D, Technicote is pleased to announce the commercial launch of Pearl White Polypropylene.
2.6 mil Pearl White BOPP features a pearlescent finish, outstanding opacity and excellent stiffness properties for label dispensing. Like our Value Grade films, this product is corona treated for excellent ink adhesion and is recommended with permanent adhesives only. 2.6 mil Pearl White BOPP may be printed using standard methods. Thermal transfer printing is NOT recommended. The new film is recommended for a variety of prime label applications in markets such as Health & Beauty, Personal Care and Household Products, among others.

Continued Improvements in Customer Service!
Earlier this year, customers were delighted when improvements were made to enhance the service level of our Customer Service department. Technicote implemented a dedicated Customer Service phone line at its corporate headquarters in Miamisburg, OH as well as established a new, West Coast Customer Service Team in Corona, CA. These achievements created more efficient order processing, quicker response time to customer inquiries, and extended service hours to our West Coast customers of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST.
In addition to the above departmental enhancements, Technicote is pleased to announce improved customer call routing for faster service. Beginning this month, incoming calls to Technicote’s Customer Service Team at 800-358-4448 will be routed directly to the caller’s primary Customer Service Representative. If the primary representative is not available, callers will have the option of holding for their primary representative or be routed to Technicote’s receptionist for further assistance.
Technicote’s goal is to provide its customers with the best service available. As a reminder, please contact our Customer Service Team directly for assistance related to order processing by calling
