The Future of Labels

Top 10 Questions

Here’s a great feature from the Labels and Labeling website.  David Ohnmeiss from Mactac took the time to write out the top 10 questions most commonly asked by converters.  Definitely worth a few minutes of your time…it’s pretty clear to see that adhesive questions are still at the top of the list!   http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/features/the-top-10-0

The Chef in Black Chinese Dressing Labels

For the Troops…

Just wanted to mention that we recently had the opportunity to work with an organization that’s doing some wonderful things for our troops.   They are called ‘For the Troops’ and their mission is to send care packages to our troops on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan.
