Willenhall, West Midlands, 23rd February 2015 – CS Labels today said they have expanded into the digital flexible packaging market, offering digitally printed sachets and pouches using groundbreaking technology.
After months of extensive product development and testing, the Willenhall based company have created a product offering which enables clients to utilise the powerful benefits of digital printing on sachets and pouches. The products, which can also offer compliance with food regulations, have already been snapped up by a number of clients including a major online home-delivery food brand who will utilise the fast, accurate and high quality technology that digital offers, as well as taking advantage of the plate-free printing process which enables clients to order different varieties and versions without incurring penalties. 

CS Labels are known mainly as being a European leader in digital labels. They are expanding their reach into new markets as part of their aggressive growth plans and already announced their foray into the digital transfer market just a few days ago. Their MD Simon Smith is known as a thought leader in the print industry, and 2015 has proven to be their most innovative year yet from a product development point of view.
He said: “This development is yet another giant leap for digital print as well as CS Labels. When I made the decision to focus solely on digital some years ago, and move away from traditional print methods, I had a vision that we’d be much more than just labels. Quite simply digital is offering a power and flexibility that other methods just cannot. The major food and cosmetics companies that we are working with are amazed at what’s possible and they only have to come and talk to us to find out more. When they share their ideas about branding, loyalty and efficiency within packaging campaigns, we are pleased that we can delight them with what we can do with digital. The advent of this new line means we can now expand that offering to an even wider range of packaged products”.

The pouch and sachet market is traditionally tied to volumes in excess of 3,000 linear metres. Conversely, the digitally printed tri-laminate pouches printed by CS Labels offers flexibility never experienced before with the ability to order short runs starting from just 1,000 linear metres – clients no longer have to order more than they need. Multiple sorts within a common size are a regular requirement in the pouch and sachet market and CS Labels can offer these sorts with no expensive plate costs and a delivery time that current users will appreciate.
CS Labels offering is high quality digital print onto a specified substrate, which is then sealed and pressure tested. Marketers can enjoy less stock holding and much more flexibility when it comes to campaigns, promotions, versioning, personalisation, limited editions and the ability to process very small runs if required. Lead times are short in comparison to traditional methods.

The news comes ahead of a major announcement by the company tomorrow, 24th February, one day before they exhibit at a major Packaging show; CS Labels will be on stand K7 at the Label & Print Show (co-located with the Packaging Innovations Show and Em Pack) taking place at the Birmingham NEC, UK, on 25/26 February 2015).
