Technicote’s new Film Selection Guide was designed to provide converters with a simple, yet informative overview of our extensive line of high quality pressure sensitive film label products.

The descriptive portfolio categorizes each film substrate by grouping them with other products sharing similar properties and characteristics. Within each category, a brief description of the specific film is listed. In addition, a helpful, easy to interpret Film Selection Matrix is included in the tri-fold brochure which references caliper thickness, print methods, and more beneficial information about each product.

Piggyback is a pressure sensitive label stock that has one facestock and two layers of adhesive and liner. It is used in applications where the label needs to be applied initially to one surface, but later removed and applied to a second surface.

Sweepstakes, promotions, business reply cards, and product registrations are just a few other examples that can also offer ease to the end-user, which will generate a higher response rate for your customers.
