Jet Label, Western Canada’s Largest Manufacturer, to Double in Size Following Acquisition of United Label Company in Vancouver

Jet Label & Packaging Ltd., Western Canada’s largest producer of labels and printed tape for a broad range of industries, has acquired United Label Company of Coquitlam, BC, a suburb of Vancouver. The additional space and production capacity will allow Jet Label to double in size over the next two years, during which time additional infrastructure investments will be made to the newly-acquired facility.

United Label’s facility currently operates four conventional flexographic presses ranging in width from 7–10” and 3-8 station color capabilities, as part of a fully capable manufacturing facility with a wide variety of slitters, rewinders, finishing systems, and inspection systems. Over the next 18 months, Jet Label will be adding to this lineup with new machinery and, as needed, additional personnel. Jet Label’s Edmonton facility, which operates 24/7 across three shifts, utilizes two state-of-the-art HP Indigo Digital presses along with 12 traditional flexographic presses ranging in width from 6–20” and 3-10 color station capabilities.

Why FSC Certification is Important to Us

Today, the term sustainable development has become an integral part of any business activity. Businesses are focusing more on providing environmentally friendly products by using eco-friendly materials in processes or as finished products. No business should ever claim that it uses environmentally friendly products unless it is backed by some certification. If a business does make a claim without having any certification, customers don’t often take the business’s word for it. An FSC certification is an important certificate provided by Forest Stewardship Council, which is an international non-profit organization established in 1993. Being FSC certified shows that your business complies with the highest social and environmental standards on the market.

For those of us at Jet Label, FSC certification is very important to us – and here’s why.

Foil and Embossing: A Strategic Way To Design Labels

Foil stamping and embossing spell “luxury label design” like no other. With the help of modern design techniques and trends, foil & embossing can compliment any kind of brand and give it an upscale look.

Embossing to Create Texture

Embossing is the perfect technique for creating texture. Embossing a label helps create a soft yet super tactile texture that will impress your customers. The use of texture can be elegant, fun or simple. For a fun brand, use polka dots, stripes or stars. For a more elegant feel, try a filigree. When using an emboss over a larger space on your label, you may even go rather simple for the rest of your design because the texture will create a beautiful complexity.
