Consolidated Label Company, a leading manufacturer of custom labels in the United States, has released their label packaging trends for 2013. In the release, the company discusses labeling trends that will affect the marketplace for label businesses as well as label partners in 2013.            

"The release offers customers insight on some of the biggest trends to anticipate for in 2013," said Joel Carmany, president of Consolidated Label. “Brand owners are continuously looking for new trends and new technology for their products. We feel that this list will give the owners a competitive head start in the marketplace.”

Custom label trends in 2013 include:

  •     Increase in shrink sleeve production
  •     Continue segmentation of consumer product lines
  •     Breaking down larger packaging sizes into individual serving sizes
  •     Higher quality graphics and shelf appeal
  •     Increase metallic and foil materials
  •     Digital printing continues to make an impact

Carmany predicts that in 2013, there will be continued increase in shrink sleeve labels as well as increase in metallic materials on custom labels. “Shrink sleeves are one of the fastest growing packaging methods for bottles and we do not predict it slowing down any time soon,” noted Carmany. “With brand owners constantly looking to differentiate themselves from their competitors, shrink sleeves and metallic material will help give products the shelf appeal necessary to attract customers.”

Carmany also added that he expects digital printing to make an even bigger impact for product owners. With more economical label prices and faster turnaround, more consumers are leaning towards this printing method. In the end, it is a win-win situation for all.
