Technicote Exhibits at Wine Show in Sacramento, CA

Technicote exhibited at this year’s Unified Wine & Grape Symposium at the Sacramento Convention Center January 26-27, 2011 for the 14th year in a row. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth!

The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, now in its 17th year, is the largest wine and grape conference in the nation, representing the entire industry. The conference combines a two-day trade show with a wide array of seminars, providing up to date and relevant information on the shape of the grape growing and winemaking industry.

Top 3 questions asked at the Technicote booth:

  • Q: My wine label won’t stay on the bottle when wet or in ice. Do you have a solution?
    • A: Yes, our IP400 (“Ice Proof”) adhesive works great for this application. We had two wine bottles sitting in ice/water the duration of the show and the labels didn’t budge. People were impressed!
  • Q: Do you have any “green” wine labels?
    • A: Yes, our 60# uncoated Matte Litho wet strength wine label facestock is 100% PCW (post consumer waste), at no extra cost!
  • Q: Do you have anything that I can print on my digital printer?
    • A: Yes, our current digital portfolio includes:
      • 60# Digital Semigloss
      • 60# Digital Semigloss with Dry Edge
      • 60# Digital Kromekote
      • 60# Matte Litho WS
      • 2 mil Digital Clear BOPP
      • 2.3 mil Digital White BOPP

Additional digital label products coming soon in April, 2011!

Technicote Launches HP Digital Dry Edge Semigloss

This will be an added value option for our standard 60# Semigloss digital label products, at no additional cost.

Initial stocked inventories are available out of Technicote’s Cuyahoga Falls, OH facility in 13” & 12 ¾” roll widths by 5,000’ length. Place an order TODAY, so you can start taking advantage of this program with as little as a 1 roll minimum order. Technicote can also provide Digital DRY EDGE on custom web widths, adhesives, and liners. Let Technicote increase your printing productivity by decreasing your press down time.

Rising Raw Material Costs Impact Pressure Sensitive Label Market

Technicote continues to receive significant cost increases in 2010 on paper, film, foil, adhesives and silicones used to manufacture our roll label products. Many of our suppliers have increased prices multiple times with potential for more increases later in 2010. The major cause for these inflationary conditions is material capacity constraints, combined with growing demand in an improving North American economy.
