How do I know what the best material to use for our labels or flexible packaging?

We are very knowledgeable on this topic with decades of experience to draw upon. We will be more than happy to assist you on this, please ask us if you need help. In a nutshell though, paper substrates are going to be the least expensive option. Paper has limited durability though and should be limited to products that do not require moderate to heavy moisture resistance. They should be restricted to disposable products and packaging containers. Plastic films come in various durability grades and price categories. They can at times economically replace a paper label due to higher durability, and better printing quality. Films are a must for outdoor labels and for applications that require high moisture and or solvent resistance.
