Like death and taxes, label price increases are inevitable! We have proudly held our prices for the last 6 years, but unfortunately the time has come. All custom labels quotes will be updated upon order placement. Any change to “stock” labels will also be quoted and/or updated on our website. Please note that Priddy Sales is continually working to minimize these increases through efficiency and volume.
Below are some examples to further explain the necessary change:
- Boise is converting one of their machines currently making pressure-sensitive liner paper over to make liner board products. They provide 30% of the liners used in North America so this change will have a significant impact on availability and cost.
- Appvion Paper, which is a major supplier of face stock material, filed for bankruptcy protection on October 2nd.
- A major supplier of a direct thermal top coating component was shuttered by the Chinese government for pollution issues and is estimated to be idle for 4 to 5 months. The plant produces about 35% of the component used by the world in DT face sheets.
- Raw material increases from suppliers like Mactac, UPM Raflatac, Acucote, Spinnaker Coating, Stratatac, and Avery-Dennison.
Priddy Sales Company looks forward to helping you with your future labeling projects and will continue to provide you the best value for your money in supplies and service.
