Introducing Sheet Fed Wausau Labels
New Zealand is a great country for making wine, honey, soaps and other wonderful consumer goods. Lots of these great kiwi companies start small, often hand applying labels at first, and then growing to machine applications. How do you help support that growth while giving them a unique label stock that makes their product stand out?
Wausau Coated is a boutique label maker out of the US (based in Wisconsin) and has been one of our supply partners for a number of years with their amazing roll fed products, used mostly for digital machines (hence the ‘coating’ in their company name). As popularity grew, they realised that limited edition and other smaller label runs needed a different offering – the sheet fed option began to unfold.
We are excited to officially launch these gorgeous sheet fed options, suitable for both laser and HP Indigo sheet fed machines. A number of the facestocks are also FSC® C102086 certified. To mark the release of this range in sheet form, and to allow us to have a play with these stocks, we used a range of bells and whistles to print some custom beverage labels.
The four products we chose to highlight from the range are:
Black Vellum Permanent Adhesive (Syrah) – Digitally printed on an HP Indigo with a few hits of white ink. The black raven watermark is just black ink creating a wonderful contrast of the matt stock with a gloss hint in the ink. This facestock contains wet strength properties.
Recycled Natural Kraft Permanent Adhesive (Kombucha) – Digitally printed on an HP Indigo with a clear scodix enhancement over the string to give a raised effect without needing to emboss. The brown solid shows good ink adhesion and a consistent coverage. This label’s facestock is made with 100% recycled fibre which is also FSC® certified.
Estate #8 Permanent Adhesive (Gin) – Digitally printed on a Fujifilm Iridesse incorporating a show stopping fluro pink toner. The florals in the background are a subtle grey (cmyk) topped with a clear toner. This facestock contains wet strength properties and is FSC® certified.
Bright White Felt Permanent Adhesive (Sauvignon Blanc) – Digitally printed on a Fujifilm Iridesse incorporating a silver toner moon which contrasts nicely with the grey (cmyk) waves. This facestock contains wet strength properties and is FSC® certified. There is also an Eggshell Felt option available which is cream in colour.
