FutureMark Paper Group has announced a number of enhancements to Future Label, the industry's only coated one sided (C1S) label product with high-recycled content (>85 percent). This provides an environmentally-friendly C1S label solution for consumer packaged goods.
Fueled by innovations in FutureMark's deinking process, Future Label now features a paper brightness rating of 88 and a blue-white shade. In addition, the recycled content in Future Label has been increased from 80 percent to 85 percent, and a modified coating recipe has greatly enhanced the C1S paper's overall print performance. As a result, Future Label offers brand owners, retailers and label converters a reliable, bright-white sheet with clean styling for superior print quality.
"Continuous innovation at our recycled mills has enabled us to take our Future Label product to the next level in both quality and recycled content," stated Matt Nightingale, Vice President, Business Development, FutureMark Paper Company. "We're pleased to be able to offer this exceptional sustainable solution to leading converters and retailers who are committed to greening their businesses."
Fort Dearborn Company, a leading supplier of high-impact decorative labels for the beverage, confectionery, food, household products, nutraceutical, paint/coatings, personal care and spirits markets, has partnered with FutureMark to bring Future Label to its customers. "Future Label is the perfect fit for our green-minded customers who want an excellent sustainable packaging solution," stated Tim Nicholson, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Technical Services.
"A strong commitment to sustainability and green business practices is fundamental to our business," stated Charles B. Connolly, President of Connemara Converting, a full service film, paper and board converting company supplying and servicing label printers, envelope producers and merchants. "We are thrilled to partner with FutureMark to offer our customers a quality, high-recycled option for their label needs."
Future Label is immediately available in 55 and 60 pound basis weights.
