The proposal is leaving some with a sour taste in their mouths, but at Lorpon Labels we see it differently. The perfect product deserves the perfect packaging and with our digital printing process, we can help you make any change a change for the better.

Use semi-automatic label applicators to showcase your best bottles

  • December 14, 2016
  • Blog

At Lorpon Labels, we can first-hand attest to how bottle applicators are a great cost-saving tool that benefit not only us—the labelers, but also you—our clients. While the initial investment into a bottle labeler may seem steep, if you’re looking to invest in one yourself, it pays off (literally) in the reduction of extra labour costs over time. In addition, a labeler’s speed and accuracy are top notch, resulting in up to 1,200 bottles labeled per hour with precise placement. It can also place front and back labels on the same bottle, as well as clear labels, allowing you to achieve that “no-label” look.
