Skanem Effects

Skanem Functional

Functional labels have a specific role within the packaging concept or are constructed to solve a specific problem. In the labelling industry, space, display of vital information and new surfaces are a challenge and various innovative functional label solutions are created at Skanem to overcome these challenges.

Product Information options

Product Information options: Labels designed to meet the growing need to provide more information about the product to the consumer

Skanem Peel and Read

An easy to open and close multi part label consisting of several pages of printed text but only using only the limited space of a single label.

Skanem Peel and WRAP

This is similar to the Peel n Read label with an added function of being wrapped on rounded surfaces, thus further increase space for product information.

Skanem Booklet

A label containing a folded pull out sheet used for product descriptions, operating instructions, multilingual versions and marketing campaigns.

Skanem Easy Peel

This is a multipage label with multiple peel off printed pages such that each page is marked with a tab to facilitate easy opening. It is easier to identify and access the most important or relevant information with the use of this label

Skanem Sleeve

A long linerless label based on folding card and four types of wrap allowing both front and back surfaces to be printed. Used extensively for food trays where content is exposed with branding and customer information on-pack. The Skanem Sleeve can also be used for product bundling.

Closure Systems and re-closable options

Specially constructed labels that seal the pack and keep the product fresh until point of use by the consumer. A removable, repositionable adhesive allows the customer to peel back the label to open and re-close the pack as the product is used.

Sales Promotional options

Specialty labels that support promotions including coupons, flash labels, tear-outs, proof of purchase and scratch cards.

Dry peel

This label allows a part or surface of the label to be peeled off. The peeled off part is non-sticky. Dry peel labels can be used for promotional vouchers as they can be written on, collected easily as redemption codes and can be posted easily.

Hanger Labels options

Specially engineered labels that are strong enough to adhere to a bottle or pack and specially die cut to allow the bottle to hang from a stand. Varying in size, often used in hospital intravenous applications.

In addition to the above mentioned functions we can offer many more Skanem functional solutions based on your special product requirement and market.
