Arjowiggins Creative Papers and Antalis, sister companies within the Sequana group, present latest labelling innovations that ensure a strong first impression with consumers

Country, date

Arjowiggins Creative Papers (AWCP), a leading producer of fine papers and Antalis, the n°1 European distributor of paper, packaging solutions and visual communications products, will make their first visit to Labelexpo to showcase their labeling brands. Visitors can discover the Creative Labels range which allows designers to rise to the challenge of creating labels that enhance product visibility and influence consumer choice. The Sticotac range of commodity labels that combines reliability with excellent value-for-money will also be on show.

Creative Labels: the art of standing out

Fully FSC®-certified and with a 100% recycled option, the Creative Labels range incorporates technical innovation and exciting traditional and contemporary colours and textures to deliver distinctive labelling and branding for top-of-the-range wines and spirits, champagnes, delicacies and luxury food products. The existing finishes of Wove, Rough Laid, Linen, Martelé and Millésime have been extended with 4 new options: Wove Metallics, Shetland, Tweed and Wove 100% recycled. They are the perfect canvas for daring designs and sophisticated printing techniques that catch the consumer’s eye such as embossing, hot-foil blocking, silk-screening and varnishing.

The range demonstrates excellent performance on glass and stainless steel and has received anti-fungicidal treatment. This combined with its reinforced wet strength, proven through rigorous ice-bucket testing, ensures that labels remain pristine and stable whether the product is served immediately or aged in humid conditions.  

The new self-adhesive reels that complement the traditional water-glued label sheets, offer the same qualities and have been packaged with the small producer in mind. The minimum order quantity is only one reel and each reel has a useful 1000 lm length, making it the ideal choice for short runs.

The Creative Labels range can give real personality to a product and boost its perceived value and image for consumers, particularly when enhanced with elegant finishing techniques,” comments Charles De James, Labels Business Director, Arjowiggins Creative Papers. “The diversity, flexibility and quality of the range open up a world of possibilities for both niche and mainstream brands to be inventive and gain that all important competitive edge.”

Sticotac: sticking to the essentials

The Antalis Stitotac range of FSC®-certified coated and uncoated standard labels delivers trouble-free, whiter than ever printing results for day-to-day, industrial and promotional labeling, and is great value for customers. Highly diverse and flexible, it offers excellent adhesion on a wide variety of substrates and is suitable for contact with toys and indirect food contact.

Sticotac is available in vellum, coated semi-gloss, cast gloss, gloss and litho options and customers can also avail themselves of Antalis’ “Special Makings Service” should they require a special face paper, backing sheet or specific size.

We always aim to offer our customers the broadest choice of products possible in order to ensure that all their application needs are covered,” explains Isabelle Lombard, Creative Papers product manager, Antalis International. “The Sticotac range is complementary to the Creative Labels range and by offering both, users are in a position to choose the solution best suited to their priorities and constraints, be it look and feel, printing techniques or budget.”
