Food Labels

Harold Chayefsky and Wintry Press have produced some interesting labels lately. They are packaging labels printed in 4 color on an all temperature label stock (used in a freezer), and then coated with a coating that allows the labels to be printed on-in this case customized with the specific name of the contents in the package. This was interesting from a few points of view-the adhesive must be correct or the labels will simply come off the package when frozen (not good), and if the high gloss coating is not correct then the printing of the contents on the labels will smudge or nor adhere at all (also not good). It all seems obvious, but there are so many variables and options with adhesives, coatings, etc. that they all must be exactly correct for each specific application. For instance, there is also adhesive for extreme heat, that might label a car engine. More on that label to come.
