2014 Wine, Spirits, and Specialty Food Product Guide Unveiled


Technicote unveiled its new Wine, Spirits & Specialty Food Product Guide during the 2014 Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, California.

The product guide includes swatches of designer papers, films, and foils while also introducing two new face stocks exclusive to the pressure sensitive label industry.

Technicote’s 60# White Diamond paper offers a unique diamond shaped embossed pattern, while the 60# White Iceberg paper stands apart due to its extreme bright white color and slight vellum texture, making it unlike any other designer paper in the market. Both face stocks have wet strength and anti-mold treatments, and are specially manufactured for high-speed labeling and bottling.

60# White Diamond and 60# White Iceberg face stocks are custom coat items with your choice of adhesive and liner from Technicote’s Corona, CA plant. Pricing and sheet samples may be requested by contacting your Technicote sales representative.

New Crystal Clear Polypropylene Offers Improved Service Levels to Converters


In an effort to continue improving our product selection and supply chain management, Technicote has sourced and qualified a replacement grade polypropylene film. This new film, 2 mil Crystal Clear Polypropylene, is sourced domestically, which we are pleased to say will dramatically improve service levels on this product. The transition to this new film will take place beginning January 1, 2012 as existing inventory of our current film, 2 mil Ultra Clear Polypropylene, is depleted. The change will affect all product constructions and web widths produced at all Technicote manufacturing plants.

The replacement film is comparable in both appearance and functionality to Technicote’s Ultra Clear Polypropylene. If you would like to receive sample material for testing purposes, please contact your Technicote sales representative to make these arrangements. Although pricing for the new film will be consistent with our current product, the item numbers and product description will change to reflect 2 mil Crystal Clear Polypropylene film.

We appreciate your understanding during this transition period and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Your business is important to us, as we strive to provide the high quality service and products you expect and deserve. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this new product change, please contact your Technicote Sales Representative.
