An Innovative and Sustainable Solution
Roll-Fed Shrink (RFS) is unique to the shrink label market and Inland Label is also unique to this market as the one and only rotogravure water-based printer. The use of water-based inks, which is a more sustainable solution for your packaging needs, eliminates any limitations you may have with current solvent based inks, which can be harmful to the environment. Coupled with water-based inks, rotogravure printing brings to life the vision of packaging designers by producing higher-end graphics, delivering finer lines, incredible detail, vignettes, more color options and a wider range of specialty inks.
RFS labels are also appealing from a value engineering standpoint because of the process improvements this technology can offer. From a total-applied-cost perspective, RFS can save valuable time and money with only three steps: printing, slitting and application. Traditional shrink methods, i.e. shrink sleeves, have five steps: printing, slitting, seaming, inspection and application.
Finding the right point of differentiation requires innovative solutions and collaboration. That is why we are working closely with each OEM and film manufacturer to ensure you, the brand owner, are getting the most from your packaging decoration when it comes to RFS labels.
