Think back to the 1980s and 1990s. These were great years for pressure-sensitive label converters. PS was snapping up glue-applied market share at a rapid pace and packaging buyers were extremely loyal to their label vendors. These were the years when a printed label wasn’t considered a commodity. Labels were applied solutions, whether the final product was a mustard jar, a barcode on a shoebox or a combination-printed label on an upscale shampoo brand. Label converting companies didn’t need to focus on marketing due to the intrinsic market forces in place during these decades.
The challenges being faced by converters and the emerging technical trends that are impacting their businesses are among the key topics that will be addressed at the 4th FINAT European Label Forum, Dublin, from 6-8 June. This important event will provide attendees with insight and guidance as they think about the future of their businesses in a rapidly evolving environment.
