Come see us in Chicago!

It goes without saying that we at Papertec are very excited to be participating in the exciting world of social media, however we also know that there is nothing like a handshake and a face to face interaction. So much business is done electronically these days that we don’t get much of a chance to get out there and meet our customers. We like to take any opportunity that we can to say thanks for your business and we especially like to jump at the chance to explain and display everything that we do.  That is why we are so excited to be attending the Labelexpo Americas 2012!

Beyond just being exhibitors at this years’ tradeshow, we are also looking forward to learning all that we can regarding the innovations in our industry. Things such as product launches, digital printing master classes, laser die cutting workshop & the conference program that runs alongside the exhibitors are great places for us to gain a fresh perspective!

Labelexpo Americas is the largest label converting event in both North and South America combined and as such, it is the perfect place for us to represent ourselves. We supply base paper, release liner and we do a lot of work in narrow width slitting which lends itself perfectly to label manufacturers.  We will have various grades of papers and films, both printed and non-printed that will be on display. Our products include kraft paper, packing tape, specialty films and specialty paper. Come visit us from Sept. 11 thru Sept. 13 at booth #3012 to see all we have to offer.

Papertec: Let us help you stay environmentally friendly.

As the battle of paper vs. plastic wages on, we here at Papertec know that we offer a sustainable product that will help to reduce our carbon footprint and keep the environment sound.

For years Europe has been leading the eco-friendly trend and have put into place very strict packaging regulations in many product markets. North America is now seeing many of the same demands from our government and consumers. As the old saying goes, “what the consumer wants, the consumer gets!” Retailers and manufacturers alike, have been quick to pick up on the growing need for sustainable packaging. Many major chain grocery stores are all doing away with plastic bags and solely using recycled brown paper bags. Some have eliminated the use of PVC plastics in packaging. When the news broke that the FDA had banned BPA in baby bottles and cups, we knew it was just a matter of time before even more people became concerned with the types of materials that are packaging and wrapping products that are essential to everyday life. We are proud to say that MANY of our paper grades are FDA approved for direct and indirect food contact and contain no harmful additives to people or the environment. Even the inks that we use to print our products are water-based or soy based and FDA approved.

Visit our website to see the massive variety of paper packaging that we can offer you. If you can make it, we can help package it…and keep you green in the process too!
