Resealable Packaging Labels

In a recent study by global research firm Ipsos Innoquest, consumers indicated that they place a high value on food and beverage packaging that preserves product freshness and is reusable. Over 60% of respondents said they would pay premium prices for products in packaging that "keeps food fresh longer". Another 50% placed a high value on packaging that is "easy to reuse".

Resealable packaging started with the baby wipes industry using 'wet wipes labels' and quickly found its way into home cleaning products, dry goods and food packaging. Done right resealable packaging adds tremendous value- done wrong it can up to overlooked product in the supermarket, lost sales and even liability.

Label Impressions' resealable package labels (not to be confused with our re-sealabel ECL (Expanded Content Labels) are designed to be food-safe, easy to open and reseal and can include a 'dry' pull tab, patterned adhesive, tamper evident adhesive and other features to help improve your image and compel consumers to buy.

Why Resealabel Labels?

Reclosable packaging is definitely hot but safety and performance are key to success in the resealable packaging market.

As a trusted source for resealable labels and patterned adhesive labels Label Impressions is able to deliver low cost, perfectly performing safe labels more quickly and cost effectively than a contract packager or printer inexperienced in the process.

Resealable labels are easily incorporated into flowwrap or thermoformed packaging production. They can be designed in almost any shape or size.
