OCTOBER NEWSLETTER 2016
Avery Hands Off Week

Dear customer,
As part of our continuous development programme, this month sees the introduction of our new upgraded packaging designed to deliver your A4 label sheets in perfect condition. By keeping the sheets protected from accidental abrasion, dust, humidity, light and curling. All of the elements that prevent optimum print performance, or the ease of application for printed labels.

New Packaging for A4 Label Sheets - Bags
For smaller quantities of A4 label sheets e.g. up to 100 sheets of matt-white paper labels (WTP) and slightly fewer sheets of other thicker label face-stocks, we have designed an attractive, white "grip seal" low density Polyethylene (LDPE) bag, with an anti-tamper serration to open upon delivery. The labels are kept flat within the bag and protected by a 3mm cardboard insert that helps to maintain the flatness of the label sheets. Once the serrated strip is removed from the bag, the labels can be accessed by opening the "grip seal" and removing the number of sheets required and resealed after use to protect the labels from damage.

Biodegrading & Recycling: With advances in research, it is now possible through various non-chemical treatments to quickly and significantly degrade LDPE, lessening the negative environmental impact and the material can also be recycled for reuse.
New Packaging for A4 Label Sheets - Boxes

For larger quantities of A4 sheet labels c. 250 sheets of WTP we have designed an innovative new box that protects labels and facilitates ease of access, via a "drop-down" lower section of the box opening, as shown in the diagrams below.

The label sheets are also sealed in a thin inner Polypropylene polymer (CPP) bag with an "easy-tear" opening. This provides additional protection and assists with maintaining the flatness of the label sheets in the box. Once sealed in the protective inner bag the labels are placed into the new cardboard box packaging and the box shrink wrapped for additional protection in transit. Upon receipt of your labels and removal of the outer shrink wrapping, open the upper lid of the box and pull down the lower section to remove the top of the serrated inner bag to access the label sheets and simply close again once the labels are removed, retaining the sheets in a clean, dust free, flat condition.

Biodegrading & Recycling: The thin inner CPP inner bag degrades from exposure to heat and UV radiation, such as that present in sunlight and the outer shrink wrap is a degradable Polyolefin, designed to retain functionality as a commodity plastic for the required service life but degrade to non-toxic end products in a disposal environment. The cardboard box itself is both biodegradable and recyclable.

DRY EDGE SHEETS
Optimised for high speed printing
Our new look "Euro" style A4 sheets are proving very popular with customers, since the introduction earlier this year and we continue to increase the number of label shapes and sizes offered in this format.

The introduction was in response to customer frustrations with the problems sometimes caused by the industry term "wet edge" on sheets of labels when printing, caused by pressure on the label sheets leaching small amounts of adhesive onto the printer rollers.

To remedy this we have introduced our new "Dry Edge Sheets" in all materials on A4 sheets, as standard. Although relatively new to the UK, edge trimming of sheets has been a standard for label manufacture in Europe for some while now and significantly improves the print performance and on full sheets of A4 assists the label peel from the release liner, without the need for "back cuts" in the release liner.
