There are times when you are worried about the condition of your product packaging in the supply chain. No wonder, poor quality of packaging can get easily damaged due to moisture, extreme temperatures, abrasion and other forms of wear and tearIn order to ensure durability, in mould labels should be made with high-quality raw materials utilizing the highest standards of manufacturing.  

2.High-quality raw material 

You should always check for certain points while ensuring that the in-mould labels are made of high-quality raw materials. A good quality in-mould label is made of BOPP. It should also be recyclable in order to comply with environmental norms. You should also check that IML have a thickness of 80 to 105 microns.    

3.Application on different types of substrates 

You should check that in-mould labels can be applied to different types of substrates. As a manufacturer, you can have many product lines and corresponding packaging for the same. Therefore, you should always select an in-mould label that can be applied on different materials.      

4.Highly customizable for branding 

A high-quality in-mould label should be customizable. This means that the label can incorporate unique designs, security label features, vivid colors and typography for enhancing your brand value.

Shrink sleeve labels are effective packaging solutions for bottled products. Theare highly aesthetic and can fit easily on any shape and size of the packagingHowever, due to a large number of packaging labels available in the market, you can get confused regarding the same. Therefore, in this blog, we have explained four compelling reasons to choose shrink sleeve labels for your bottled products.  

1. Can be applied to products of different materials  

Shrink sleeve labels can be applied easily on materials made of plastic, glass or metal. This unique quality of shrink sleeves makes them stand apart from other forms of packaging. So, if you are into the manufacturing of products with a wide variety of materials, then shrink sleeves can be your best choice of label packaging.  

2. Can fit seamlessly on different shapes and sizes of products 

You can face a lot of challenges while choosing the right packaging solution for your products. Generic product labels have to be customized as per your needs and this can increase your packaging costs. However, shrink sleeve labels have the unique property to fit seamlessly as per the shape and size of the packaging.    

3. Allows 360-degree surface area for branding 

Unlike product labelsshrink sleeves can showcase the product information and branding in a 360-degree format. Your product’s packaging is meant to grab maximum eyeballs and shrink sleeves are the best solutions in this regard.    

4. The material of shrink sleeve is damage resistant  

Most generic paper labels cannot withstand moisture, temperature, leaks, and spillage. But, shrink sleeves are the most effective packaging labels against these factors. Shrink sleeve labels are made with high-quality materials that can survive in the harsh environment of the supply chain.

Tamper evident holograms commonly come in two variants — i) tamper text and ii) tamper patternevident.  

Tamper text evident holograms leave behind a text message on the substrate when peeled or tampered with. The text message can be customized as per client requirement or you may very well opt for generic ‘VOID’ tamper text holograms

2. Specify whether you require security cuts 

Tamper evident holograms can also come with the security cuts tamper featureHolograms with security cuts self-destruct along with specified patterns if tampered with. The number and position of security cuts can be customized as per your needs.

Packaging films are highly important for your products and business. These films offer safety and brand appeal to your products. But, selecting the best packaging film for your requirements can be challenging. In this blog, we have explained the four parameters to identify the best packaging film supplier.   

1.Look for quality 

While looking for the best packaging film supplier quality should be on the top of your checklist. However, your procurement manager might overlook this point and purchase poor quality packaging films. Such films might save you money but could be potentially dangerous for your business.  

Your procurement manager should always look for quality of packaging films offered by the supplier. Moreover, the supplier must offer high quality packaging films at affordable prices.    

2.Look for security 

You should always look for the aspect of security while looking for packaging film manufacturers. A dubious packaging film supplier will not provide security features in the packaging films.  

Your procurement manager should always look for different kinds of security features in the packaging films. Some of the most common security features include holography and digital authentication features.  

3.Look for affordability 

Many packaging film suppliers can dupe you and supply poor quality packaging films at high prices. Besides packaging there are a lot of other things which you have to spend on, therefore selecting a supplier who offers packaging films at affordable costs is important 

Your procurement manager should always stay away from suppliers who offer products that are too costly or too cheap. He or she must look for solutions that are available at affordable prices.   

4.Look for aesthetics  

Packaging films that look dull and bland are a big no for your business. You should always choose those suppliers that offer attractive designs and features in the packaging films. A packaging film with aesthetics will increase your sales and business growth.  

Moreover, highly aesthetic packaging films have the quality to catch the eyeballs of your end-consumer and retain the current ones.

Packaging films are used for multiple applications in different industries. You can select from a wide variety of packaging options for your products, however, packaging films fulfill your multiple requirements. In this blog, we have explained the four main qualities to look for in holographic packaging films.    

1. Durability

Poor quality packaging films can get easily damaged in the supply chain. Such films don’t offer protection to the products and make them highly susceptible to tampering, adulteration, and duplication. Your procurement team may skip to check the durability of the packaging films. This can be harmful to your products and profits.  

Your procurement team should always give a high priority to the aspect of durability in packaging films. A highly durable packaging film flawlessly secures the product and instills confidence in the end consumer that the product is safe. 

2. Affordability

If a packaging film doesn’t suit your budget, then it’s of no use. Your procurement team should analyze the quality and other factors relative to the costs. If the film is too costly or too cheap it is wise to avoid it.   

Your procurement team should always check for packaging films that are of supreme quality at affordable prices. Such films are best for your product and your business.  

3. Security

While you may consider a lot of factors before purchasing a packaging film, product security should be kept high on the priority. Your products are always susceptible to duplication, tampering, adulteration, etc. and this can give you sleepless nights. However, packaging solutions with security features can be the ideal solution. 

Your procurement team should always check for the elements of security in the packaging films. These can include holography, overt features, covert features, etcPackaging films with holography can offer optimum security to the product against counterfeiting.    

4. Aesthetics

Whatsoever may be the price, quality and security features of the packaging films, aesthetics matter most when it comes to attracting consumers. A poor packaging makes the product look unattractiveIt brings down the sales of your products and may lead down to a drop-down in profits. 

You should always choose a packaging film that has inbuilt aesthetics to attract your consumers. Your procurement team should check for design patterns and vibrant holographic features in the packaging films.       

Holostik is a frontrunner in providing high-quality holographic packaging films to different industries. We cater customized holographic films with security features like nano-optical images, covert features, etc.

Labels are important packaging products for most industries. Labels showcase important information related to the product and the brands. They also secure the product against duplication, tampering, and adulteration. With numerous label manufacturers available in Indiait has become a herculean task to identify the best. In order to simplify the process of selecting the best label manufacturers in Indiawe have explained the key points which you and your procurement manager should highly consider. 

1. Manufacturers who deliver high-quality labels at reasonable prices 

Your procurement manager may skip this important point before freezing the deal. Affordability is an important factor, but it should not be compromised with quality.    

Due to large number of label manufacturers in Indiait has become a daunting task to select the best. However, your procurement manager should always select a label manufacturer who offers high-quality labels at reasonable prices.  Successful label manufacturers will price their offerings reasonably in order to provide the highest quality. You should always stay away from a manufacturer who price their labels too low or too high 

2. Manufacturers who can provide inbuilt security features 

This is one of the key points which your procurement manager may overlook while choosing a label manufacturer. Products without security labels are like sitting ducks for forgers and criminals. Such products can be easily tampered, adulterated and copied. The sale of fake products in the market directly hits your company growth and brand image. We recommend you to stay away from label manufacturers who don’t deliver security features in the labels.   

It’s wise to take pre-emptive measures against fake products. For this packaging labels with inbuilt security features are the best. Your procurement manager should identify label manufacturers who provide packaging labels with brand protection features. Such labels can include holography, covert features, track and trace, and supply chain visibility.   

3. Manufacturer who offer customization 

Label manufacturers who don’t offer customized labels are a big no. As a manufacturer, you have specific requirements for your product labels. This can range from designs, shapes, tamper evidence, security features, and other important elements. Your procurement manager may skip the point of customization while sealing the deal. This could be very harmful to your company’s growth. 

Your procurement manager should give customization to the highest priority before selecting a label manufacturer. An ideal label manufacturer should always have the production capability to incorporate your specific needs in the labelsCustomized labels not only align with your brand image but also have the capability to offer rich customer experience.        

4. Manufacturers with high production capabilities    

Many timesyour procurement manager may overlook this important point while selecting a label manufacturer. Label manufacturers with incompetent production capabilities simply cannot meet your expectations. Your product packaging can suffer if your label supplier is not able to deliver the required quantity at the right time. This could affect your production and hamper your sales. Therefore, you should always assess the production capabilities of the label supplier before finalizing the deal.

Labels are an important part of product branding. Good product labels reflect critical information as well as your brand values. However, with so many label suppliers in the market, it has become quite challenging to cut through the best 

To make things easy for youwe explain below the five qualities you should look for in label manufacturers.    

1. Security  

Product security is an important factorwhich your procurement officer might overlook before choosing a holographic label. There are high chances that he may give preference to affordability over brand protection. No wonder, choosing an affordable solution will save your moneybut will later risk your product’s security and may lead to huge monetary losses in the future 

If you fear to face this financial setbackthen your procurement officer should seriously consider the factor of brand protection in labels. He must ensure that the label supplier is offering customised security features in its offerings. Security features in labels can include holography, tamper evidence, security inks, security cuts, covert features, QR codes and much more. Also, your label supplier should be able to customise a wide range of security features as per your specific needs.                

2. Printing Quality  

Poorly printed packaging labels can ruin your brand image leaving a bad impression oyour customers. Labels with low print quality are difficult to read and don’t serve their purpose. This drastically brings down your brand image and may bring down your sales. Many timeswhile procuring packaging labels, you may not consider the quality of printing, but it should be kept on the top of your checklist 

For high quality printed labels your procurement officer should check for the types of printing machines, raw material of labels and the quality of inks used. 

Industries like FMCG, pharmaceuticals, electronics and automotive find various applications of holographic hot stamping foils for their products. These stamping foils serve the purpose of branding as well as security. However, it is easy to make mistakes while choosing reliable stamping foil supplier. 

As online knowledge on the subject matter is limited, we are sharing below key findings of our market survey to help you make the right decision and choose the right holographic hot stamping foil supplier 

1. No background check on the supplier 

There are high chances that your procurement team might not do a complete background check on the hot stamping foil supplier. There is a possibility that your supplier might use poor quality raw materials, substandard machinery or follow low-quality production standards. All this may lead to an end-product which will be of low quality and a complete waste of your money. 

Your procurement team should always do a thorough background check on the supplier. This includes the quality and type of raw materials, manufacturing equipment, industry standards, etc. 

2. No sampling of the final product

This is one big mistake which procurement teams make quite often. Your team may finalize the order of the stamping foils without properly analyzing the samples. In order to avail high quality holographic hot stamping foils, your procurement manager must ask for a suitable sample from the supplier.  

Thereafter, your quality inspection team must do a complete analysis of the quality, costing and durability of the samples. This will ensure that you get a product that is of the highest quality, without any defect and cost-effective   

3. Compromise on quality

Low quality holographic hot stamping foilare of no use. If a stamping foil is not resistant to abrasion, oil, and chemicalsthen it surely does not serve your purpose. Your procurement team might make a mistake by compromising on the quality of the productWhile affordable stamping foils might look great at first glance, they may later not stand up to the harsh environment of the supply chain.  

Ensuring the quality of hot stamping foils should be of utmost concern for your procurement team. For your complete assuranceit is highly recommended that your team visits the manufacturing facility of the supplier.     

4. Limited customization

If you choose a holographic hot stamping foil that cannot be customized as per your needsyou are making a blunder.  Before choosing a stamping foil for your business you must check if it can be customized as per your needs. Your supplier might try to dupe you by selling you a product which doesn’t suit your exact requirements 

Your procurement team should ensure that the holographic hot stamping foil they are choosing is customizable for your products. This includes criteria like shape, size, design and security features of the hot stamping foil.  

5. Noncompatibility with applicators

Last, but certainly not least, stamping foils that cannot be applied properly on your products are not the right choice. Your procurement manager should do a complete assessment for applying the stamping foil on your product. Should it be done manually or by an applicator depends completely on your industry and product. Additionally, the type of applicator you are currently using will determine whether you need the final product in sheet or spool form. 

It is highly important to choose a stamping foil supplier that can fulfill your needs of customization and application

Bottled products need shrink sleeve labels for branding and security. However, the biggest challenge is to look for a shrink sleeve manufacturer who fulfils your specific needs.

There are many aspects of which procurement managers are not aware while choosing a shrink sleeves. These aspects are trade secrets of the packaging industry and being aware of these can work in favour of your business.

To make things easy, we have compiled below the secrets for choosing the right shrink sleeves manufacturer.

1. Durability

There is a high possibility that shrink sleeve labels on bottled products can get damaged in the supply chain. Products usually go through a lot of wear and tear while being transported. Poor quality shrink sleeves can easily get torn and scratched. This leads to a loss of important information printed on the label and also tarnishes your brand’s image.

Your procurement team should choose a shrink sleeve manufacturer that doesn’t compromise on quality. The manufacturer should use high-quality raw materials and comply with global standards of manufacturing to deliver the end product.

2. Branding & aesthetics

Manufacturers of bottled products can miss the aspect of branding and aesthetics while choosing a shrink sleeve. Shrink sleeves with poor branding and visual appeal will definitely bring down the sales of products.

Companies manufacturing bottled products should choose a shrink sleeve manufacturer that complies with high standards of branding and aesthetics. Always choose a shrink sleeve label that can showcase branding and aesthetics from all angles. Branding and aesthetics in shrink sleeve encompass customized holography, designs, colour, printing and much more.

3. Perfect fit

Shrink sleeves that can’t fit perfectly to unique shapes of bottle are useless. Manufacturers often overlook the point of perfect fit in shrink sleeves. A shabby, perforated and loosely fit shrink sleeve can bring down the product appeal and brand image. Shrink sleeve that fail to fit perfectly according to the shape of bottle will also fail in delivering the product information and brand value.

Your procurement officer should make it a point to select shrink sleeves that perfectly fit with your bottled product. It is highly recommended to check different types of samples before making the final decision. The sleeve label should fit tightly around the bottle without leaving any gaps or air bubbles. If it is a cap or neck sleeve, then it should fit tightly around the cap or neck of the bottle without a flaw.

4. Tamper proof

Shrink sleeve labels of poor quality are highly prone to tampering. Such sleeve labels can become a big reason for product adulteration and duplication.

While searching for best shrink sleeve manufacturers that offer brand security, companies must highly consider cap or neck sleeve labels. Any wicked move to tamper with such labels will alert the supply chain stakeholders. Moreover, cap or neck sleeves offer holistic branding and aesthetics just like normal shrink sleeve labels.

5. Authentication & track and trace

Shrink sleeves without brand protection features can be easily copied. Procurement managers make a big mistake if they ignore product safety measures. Generic shrink sleeves can be easily replicated and used to befool the innocent consumers.

As a manufacturer, you should give brand protection high importance. Holography and digital authentication deter counterfeiters from copying your products and its packaging. Besides, track and trace empower you to monitor products throughout the supply chain.

Holostik is the highest quality manufacturer of shrink sleeves and caters to different industries. We offer customized shrink sleeves in different variants like body and neck sleeve with printing, body and neck sleeves with holography and body and neck sleeves with printing and holography.

As a manufacturer of bottled products, sealing wads play a key role in your product packaging. Your procurement team can often overlook important points while choosing the right induction sealing wads supplier for your products. While affordability is a big factor, there are many other qualities that must be present in the ideal sealing wads for your customized needs.

To make things easier, we have compiled a list of quality parameters below.

1. Water resistance

The biggest challenge with low-grade sealing wads is leakage. A wad is useless to a product if it can’t keep its content intact.

Make sure your provider uses high-quality materials in the production of sealing wads. The wads should have the quality to withstand water and stay undamaged. Such wads will surely prevent spillage and keep the contents of the product safe inside the bottle.

2. Security features

Generic wads can be easily copied and aid product duplication or brand piracy. A high-quality wad will also have features to prevent duplication and tampering of your products.

Always look out for security features in sealing wads. Security features can range from holography, security printing, product authentication and even track and trace functionality. Induction sealing wads with security features can increase your sales and growth by keeping your supply chain safe from illicit intrusion.

3. Aesthetic appeal

Poor looking wads are a big turnoff for the end-consumer. The wad seal is the last thing a consumer notices and interacts with before beginning product consumption. Unattractive sealing wads can leave a negative impression of your products, and thus diminish opportunities to increase repeat purchases.

Although easily overlooked, aesthetics is very important for every packaging layer of your products including induction sealing wads. An ideal wad will sport a customized brand design (extending even to its security features) and effective use of colors and printing. Sealing wads that are appealing can boost your brand’s image and multiply sales.

4. Non contamination

Wads made from inferior materials are unable to prevent contamination. If the contents of the product are not safe, then your money and time will definitely go down the drain.

It is important to ensure that the induction sealing wads you use for your products prevent any sort of material contamination or oxidation. A perfect sealing wad should act as a barrier against any form of contaminants present outside the product’s packaging. This helps to maintain the quality of the product in the market and ensure high customer satisfaction and retention.

Holostik provides customized induction sealing wads with all the right qualities for your bottled products. Depending on your customized requirements, we can provide holographic wads, wads with lids, pressure-sensitive wads, peel-and-release wads and wads with in-built QR-code authentication and track & trace features among other offerings.
