In the last decade, the packaging industry has seen many trends come and go, but the one thing unanimously agreed upon is the bright future of Pressure Sensitive (PS) Labels. PS labels are continuous flexible strips of plastic, paper, film or any other material coated with an adhesive. They sticks to different types of surfaces at room temperature with a light application of pressure without the use of heat, water or a solvent. These Labels are becoming increasingly popular owing to their versatility. From the ease-of-use to the cost-effectiveness, these labels are used in nearly 80% of the products in the market today.
