Technicote Expands Holographic Polyester Offering with New Seamless Pattern


As the holidays quickly approach us, so does the glamour. Shopping aisles at retail outlets are jam packed with products dressed up in festive fashion to include labels and packaging that scream, “Celebrate”! Bright, shiny, and sparkly wrapped items light up the shelves as thousands of brands fight for the attention of billions of consumers through their marketing efforts. The boring, tiresome look of the “off-season” is now gone and has been replaced with a renewed presence of flash and flare.

There are only a few substrates on the market capable of transforming the drab look of a packaged product into a captivating work of art useful reference. One way of accomplishing this goal is through the use of holographic label materials.

Technicote offers a dynamic collection of pressure sensitive holographic polyester label products in a variety of spectacular patterns. Available in a 2 mil caliper thickness, our most popular patterns include the Rainbow, Sparkles, and Stardust designs, all which are available with your choice of adhesive and liner combination in 10 days or less!

The most recent addition to our holographic product line is our Seamless Rainbow pattern, which is true to its name. Comparable to the familiar Rainbow pattern of our industry, the new Seamless Rainbow product is completely seam-free! This dollar saving feature is a dream for label converters who regularly lose valuable production time and excess label scrap due to a visible seam which repeats through the entire roll of stock.

Our new 2 mil Seamless Rainbow Holographic Polyester available in stock with our TS523 adhesive and 50# SCK liner in a 30″ master web. All other all adhesive/liner combinations can coat and ship in 5-7 business days.

Samples and pricing are immediately available. Please contact your Technicote sales representative for more information.

Doug O’Connell announced Technicote’s Corona, CA manufacturing plant as the recipient of the President’s Award for outstanding achievement. Please join us in congratulating our Corona, CA plant on successfully completing two years of production without a recordable injury.

  • Working safely is a condition of employment
  • Training to work safely is essential

According to Plant Manager, George Parker, “This achievement was made possible by the commitment of each team member toward working safely each and every day, taking personal responsibility for their own safety, believing that all injuries are preventable, and understanding that safety is a good business practice.”

George and his team have gone above and beyond what is required by OSHA and he realizes that, “It really boils down to caring about our employees, caring about our company, and caring about our customers.”

Technicote’s Roots Remain Strong in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

By | Press Releases

One year after a devastating fire left a large portion of Technicote’s manufacturing plant in smoky ruins, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday, January 8th to announce the grand reopening of the newly renovated pressure sensitive adhesive and silicone coating facility located at 70 Marc Drive in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

The new building is 51,600 square feet; approximately 20% larger than the original structure to support additional expansion of the business including new equipment and upgrades. Operations are almost back to 100% from before the fire.

“A year ago when I was walking through the burned out shell of a building I could not have envisioned being here today celebrating the official opening of this facility,” recalled Doug O’Connell, President of Technicote. “I remember meeting with all the employees on Sunday afternoon, two days after the fire and telling them that we’d emerge from this set back stronger and better than ever. It’s very rewarding standing here today and seeing that vision being fulfilled.”

Technicote is very optimistic that with new manufacturing equipment, more efficient work flow processes, and expanded production capabilities, 2013 will be just the beginning for significant future sales growth for the company. “Our customers can look forward to our commitment to provide exceptional, specialty label and silicone coated liner products and an industry source for developing new product technology,” commented Gary Stover, Technicote’s Director of Marketing.

In closing, O’Connell thanked the multitude of people responsible for their efforts in the rebuilding project, including the local fire and police departments. “Most of all, I want to thank all of Technicote’s dedicated employees both here in Cuyahoga Falls, at Miamisburg, and at all our locations for working tirelessly to insure our success.”

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!

Due to ongoing supply issues, Technicote has spent considerable time and effort developing better solutions. The recent introduction of our “Value Plus” white polypropylene film is an excellent lower cost solution for many applications where a corona treated film is acceptable for ink receptivity. However, a topcoated film is still the preferred choice by many converters. To meet this market need, Technicote (working in conjunction with a major domestic manufacturer of BOPP) developed 2.3 mil Polar White Polypropylene. This product is a gloss white, topcoated film with properties and characteristics that closely resemble our longstanding premium grade, 2.3 mil Majestic White.

2.3 mil Polar White BOPP is available TRIM FREE in a 5,000’ roll length out of our Terre Haute, IN manufacturing plant with our TS523 adhesive and 40# SCK liner (Item#572133) with two day service. At our West Coast manufacturing facility in Corona, CA, Polar White Polypropylene is available TRIM FREE with our AT333 adhesive and a 40# SCK release liner (Item#572135). Alternative adhesive and liner constructions are also available as a custom coat item with a five day lead time.

Sheet or roll samples of Technicote’s new Polar White Polypropylene are available by contacting your sales representative, or by calling our Customer Service Department direct at 800-358-4448.

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.
