Technicote Thanks You!


We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our valued customers who have continued to support us this year. We have had our challenges since December, and while we are seeing steady improvements, our entire staff continues working hard toward performing at the service levels you have come to expect from Technicote. The process of rebuilding continues (last week we installed a slitter in our Home Avenue, Akron location) and we are looking forward to becoming an even stronger supplier than we were before. We’ll keep you posted as we continue to restore our operations in our Cuyahoga Falls, OH plant.

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 Membership Card has the edge when it comes to affixed card applications

Built-in lift edge provides “universal” release from any side of card


Technicote is pleased to announce the launch of its new Technicote Membership Card polypropylene film base, a unique pressure sensitive coupon product designed for direct mail packages that require cards to be affixed to continuous forms or cut sheets. This exciting new product is the optimal solution for all varieties of affixed card applications used for fundraising, clubs, banks, and other membership oriented organizations.

The product consists of two thin layers of polypropylene film bonded together with a specialty dry-release adhesive. The film construction is then coated with Technicote’s TP170 adhesive and 40# SCK release liner. The familiar dry-release adhesive pattern of Technicote’s IRC film base has been incorporated into Technicote Membership Card, but modified to provide a tight release for successful converting and auto-dispense processes. The purpose of the tight release is to help prevent the film layers from separating prematurely. The pattern provides a built-in lift edge on all sides of the film, affording universal release from the form to which it is applied. Technicote Membership provides excellent durability during secondary laser printing processes; keeping the product intact as it becomes exposed to high temperatures during this operation. The product is suitable for flexographic printing, as well as signature compatible. Technicote Membership Card is stocked in Technicote’s Cuyahoga Falls, OH manufacturing plant for quick turnaround.

2010 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium


Technicote has capped off another successful showing at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium. The leading wine industry trade show was January 27-28, 2010 at the Sacramento Convention Center. We would like to thank all our current and prospective customers who visited our booth. We were pleased with another record setting crowd that demonstrates the continued growth and strength of the wine labeling industry. Highlights from the show included distributing Technicote’s new 2010 Wine Label Brochure and launching our 100% PCW (post consumer waste) wine label product.

The 2010 Wine Label Brochure has been updated with the addition of a number of new textured papers and environmentally friendly options. However, the buzz of the show came from the interest and demand for Technicote’s new 100% PCW product that is priced at the same level as other Non-PCW sheets. Now you can go green without spending extra green.

New Product Update – 60# Uncoated Litho Wet Strength 100% PCW Wine Label


Now you can go GREEN without spending any extra GREEN !!! Technicote now offers our 100% PCW (post consumer waste) wine label facestock at the same price of other similar Non-PCW wine label products. We have removed the additional costs that other suppliers charge for environmentally friendly products so our customers will not have to wait any longer to make the switch.

60# Uncoated Litho WS 100%PCW product is available in 26” or 30” masters out of our Corona, CA coating facility. This product is available with a variety of adhesive/liner combinations to fulfill a wide range of labeling solutions. Technicote is excited with the interest and opportunities the new lower pricing has created. Call Technicote or your area sales representative TODAY for more information. Don’t let this cost savings opportunity to grow your business pass you by.
