Can Labels For Flexible Flavors

Can Labels For Flexible Flavors

Beer Can Labels Give Great Options

Beer can labels allow brewers to experiment, collaborate, and bring new products faster.  Small batch sizes, quick delivery, and great quality make can labels a good option for specialty products.  Beer can labels add cost, but with premium, small batch products commanding a higher price, the can label pays for itself.  And, not having to order 200,000+ of each SKU saves money and space.

12oz or 16oz – We CAN Help

We have the standard sizes for 6-pack (12oz) and 4-pack (16oz) labels.  And, we can do them on both our traditional press (long run) format and the short-mid run digital press.  Whatever the beer can label need – we CAN help!

RCL Can Labels Run Well

Beer can label customers rave about how well the labels stick to wet, cold cans and how durable they are in the retail environment.  Because cans don’t have a protective panel like glass bottles, can labels need a laminate to protect the ink. We learned this the hard way on early runs, but now we have the system dialed in.

Design Options and Special InksBright Inks Pop off the Label

Because you aren’t committing to 200,000 printed cans, your designs can be flexible and fun.  Also consider adding metallic or fluorescent inks to make your designs pop off the retail shelf.  Printed cans are great, but they just don’t have the graphic options that a beer can label offers.

Small or Large Quantities

Because of our flexible press options, we can print 500 to 100,000 can labels in a fast, high quality, cost effective manner.  Some can labels cost as little as 7.5c per label.

3,500 Mile Overnight Delivery – Extra Mile Service!

Extra Mile Service – Whatever it takes!

When we determined that a critical shipment wasn’t going to make it for an important trade show, we reran the order and boarded a plane. We flew the labels (in Going the extra milesuitcases) to the venue in Chicago so the customer could have them for the show.  The customer loved the labels. The stickers were a big hit at the event.  Whatever it takes, we are here to provide extra mile service.  Here’s the full story:

Friday Night

At about 10pm Friday night, we figured out that this shipment would be delivered Monday, not Saturday as requested.  We contacted UPS and tracked the packages, but with no luck.  The packages were stuck in Louisville, KY and nobody would get to them in time.

Saturday at Noon

By noon saturday we had an emergency crew in the shop to re-run the job.  While the job was running, we explored DHL, FedEx Freight, and continued to look for ways Rerun Labels Extra Mile Service Rose City Labelto retrieve the job from the UPS facility in KY.  The customer was willing to drive from Chicago (297 miles) to pick up if this would be an option.  Unfortunately, the only viable option was to buy an airline ticket and fill suitcases with labels.  Saturday afternoon we were out buying suitcases to make this happen.

Saturday Night at PDX

The gate agent checked the overweight bags onto the United Airlines direct flight to Chicago.  The staff was very cordial and helpful – it isn’t very often that a person only checks their bags one way!  The passenger was just there to escort the bags, but it was faster and less expensive to have a human getting a free ride to Chicago.

Sunday 5am in Chicago

After a nice relaxing night on the airplane, I was in Chicago by 5am and ready to hand off the bags to my customer contact.  Labels aren’t always sexy or exciting, but this handoff seemed like a monumental achievement to keep the free world safe.  Very exciting to see the labels in the proper hands.

Extra Mile ServiceLater, we got notice from the trade show that the labels were a big hit.  Finally, by the end of the day the trade show staff gave away the entire 200 lbs. (4 suitcases) of hand delivered labels.  Success!

Sunday 10am – back in Portland

About 95 minutes after the big handoff, I was back through security and eating breakfast at the airport. Sadly, I didn’t see any of Chicago on this trip!  The flight back was easy, and with the time change, I was back before lunch time.  In less than 12 hours I covered 3,500 miles and made a huge impact on an important customer.

Extra Mile Service – Anything for Labels!

This is, admittedly, the craziest delivery story that I can recall in the last 24 years, but it’s really just an extension of our daily way of doing business.  Customers come to us with crazy problems all the time and we go out of our way to fix them.  Extra mile service – that’s what we are all about.  Call us today!
