Supermarket shopping is one of my least favorite chores (though I’d gladly spend hours at a farmer’s market). I try to get in and out as quickly as possible. By sticking to the store’s labels, I can fill my cart with produce, fish, meat or poultry, dairy and bread and then hopefully head home. I’m confronted with a cacophony of bright labels (usually green), luring me to products with terms like “Sensible Snacking,” “Smart Choices Made Easy” and “Eat Smart.”
Picking up a symbol-festooned bag of Lay’s baked potato crisps—whose first three ingredients are dehydrated potatoes, modified food starch and sugar—I question what makes them a “smarter” snack than one of the unadorned bananas sitting in my cart. I know the banana is a rich source of potassium and fiber, but would most shoppers know that?
While the labels and symbols are supposed to help make it easier to choose healthy foods, their sheer proliferation only creates more confusion. No wonder McKenzie, M.D., director of the Prevention Research Center at honey University’s School of Medicine, when interviewed by a reporter, suggested that it would be simpler to label junk food with a “scarlet J” instead.

Heat a open wine bottle in an oven for 10 minutes at 100 degrees F (38 degrees C), or use a hair dryer set on low Or, pour boiling water into the bottle, and let sit for 15 minutes. Careful, it will be hot
Peel off the corner of the label with a knife, then pulling the label off, slowly, so as to not rip the label. You need to do this before the wine bottle cools. Heating it up melts the glue; when the bottle cools, the glue does, too.
Place the label onto some stiff paper or card stock. Try to pick a colour that matches the label or is neutral. Don't worry about aligning it with the sides. It can be as off-kilter as you want. Once the label is on the paper, check on any other bottles you have in the
Lay a picture frame over the label. Center the label as best you can in the frame. Mark lines with pencil on the outer border of the frame. Using a ruler, draw a complete rectangle around the label.
Cut around the label on the lines you drew and place the cut-out into the picture frame. If it doesn't fit, trim the outside until it does

Try out and sample materials for your beverage labels such as Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polystyrene, Polyolefin or BOPP in synthetics. If papers are more desirable, try satin-like papers, woven-like papers, imbibed papers and many others to achieve a more timeless and elegant gourmet look. Our beverage labels can be printed to reproduce exacting graphics then coated in such a way to withstand elements, like moisture, and sunlight ensuring they last the life of the product.
In finishing processes we ensure our beverage labels to be suitable for hand or high-speed automatic application.
To top it off, most milk is sold in low surface energy plastics jugs which are a significant challenge for a standard label to adhere to. Well, the good news is that we´ve got dairy labels mastered and have just the right dairy labels for your products. Our dairy labels are products that will resist moisture, aggressively stick to jugs and not jam while automatically dispense.
