Adcraft Labels Wins “Best Places to Work in Orange County” Second Year in a Row!
04 September, 2018

 Adcraft Labels was recently named as one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Orange County. This is the second year in a row for Adcraft.

The awards program was created in 2009 and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, California, benefiting the county’s economy, its workforce and businesses.

To be considered for participation, employers had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees working in Orange County
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in Orange County; and
  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year

Organizations from across the county entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The first part consisted of evaluating each employer’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Orange County and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.

The ranking of the winning organizations will be released via a special section of the Orange County Business Journal’s July 24 issue.

Adcraft Labels is the sole provider of JetFlex Technology™ in the country. Adcraft was founded in 1977 creating high-quality flexographic printing for the demanding medical and electronic industries. Adcraft has since expanded into other industries including pharmaceutical, nutritional, foods, beverage, personal care, consumer goods, and security printing.

A Series of Beautiful & Unique Labels While Keeping Costs in Check
24 July, 2018

When a multinational client was looking to upgrade their private label branding, Adcraft Labelswas able to create a series of beautiful and unique labels while keeping costs in check. Thanks to our digital/flexo hybrid printing capabilities, we were able to accomplish what few other label manufactures could.

The client presented us with one family of 14 different flavors and 24 different faces and neck labels. They were looking to update their labels by adding some flexo embellishments like embossing, spot varnish, and cold foil. With 24 different faces, that could get expensive. Adcraft’s goal was to increase the shelf appeal of the product by recreating these flexo embellishments in a cost-effective manner. 

 

The first thing we noticed was that 24 different label faces and two different label sizes spread across the client’s premium and standard lines caused the product line to look disjointed. It also doubled their tooling costs and required two different setups. So we consolidated the designs into one common size, which saved the client hundreds of dollars and tied the branding together.

In addition, we redesigned the job so the 24 different faces became 12, eliminating an entire set of flexo plates in the process, which further reduce the cost. We then alternated the neck labels and back labels in order to create two different packages in a single run.

The next cost-saving feature was a direct result of Adcraft’s exclusive JetFlex Technology™. We re-engineered the job to use a metallic silver substrate and, due to the super opaque white ink available with digital/flexo hybrid printing, we could lay down a solid reverse. Then, due to the digital CYMK capabilities of the press, we tinted the substrate to create a “foil look” without the foil cost. The digital/flexo combination eliminated plate and materials cost literally saving the client thousands of dollars.

Our digital/flexo hybrid printing inks and capabilities also allowed us to create a texture right in the inks thus creating an embossed feel on the label without the need and cost of an embossing die.

This redesign provided the client with 12 unique faces each with a completely different metallic foil look and embossed feel without any additional plate, foil, or die costs.

Adcraft’s investment in continuous improvement and reinvestment in equipment helps us improve efficiencies and provide our clients with affordable custom label options. Our technology lets your creativity thrive by combining the best printing capabilities of flexography, digital, and screen-printing on one affordable custom label.


Adcraft Labels Wins Best of Category for 1849 Wine Company Triumph Wine Label
21 June, 2018

ANAHEIM, Calif.May 16, 2018 -- Custom label manufacturer Adcraft Labels announced today they have won multiple awards at the 2018 Print Excellence competition. The Printing Industries Association, Inc. of Southern California created this event 14 years ago to recognize companies who demonstrate outstanding innovation, creativity, and quality in the printing process.

Adcraft Labels wins two Best of Category awards in the 2018 "Print Excellence" competition held by the Printing Industries Association, Inc. of Southern California. Adcraft earned the "Labels & Wraps-Rolled Products or Pressure-Sensitive" award for the 1849 Wine Company "Triumph" wine label and the "Flexographic Printing" award for the Ink-Eeze "Tattoo Vitamins" label.

"This is the third year in a row we've entered the competition and won," said Ken Collins, Vice President Sales Marketing for Adcraft Labels. "The first year we won, we were excited to be recognized. The second year, we learned this wasn't a one-time thing. Then this year, when we won again, we realized this is just our way of doing business. Our highly qualified staff help brand owners create and manufacture award-winning labels and flexible packaging."

At the 2018 competition, Adcraft Labels garnered two Best of Category, two Award of Excellence, and three Certificate of Merit awards. This brings their total to 42 awards earned at the Print Excellence event over the last three years.

The Best of Category award acknowledges exemplary work in developing high-quality flexographic printing. Adcraft Labels earned their two Best of Category awards for the 1849 Wine Company Triumph wine label, and the Ink-Eeze Tattoo Vitamins label.

These awards are a testament to Adcraft's core belief that Quality is not controlled, it is achieved. Their recent Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership Council and Flexographic Technical Association awards reinforce this attitude.

"We make sure our team has the best training and the best equipment to produce the high-quality labels and packaging that our clients require," said Keith Mottram, President, and CEO of Adcraft Labels. "That's why we've invested in hybrid technology to create labels and packaging that increase shelf appeal and product differentiation for brand owners."

JetFlex Technology™, the award-winning hybrid manufacturing process available exclusively at Adcraft Labels, allows clients to create labels never before imagined. Brand owners can now design a label that combines traditional embossing and foil techniques with true Pantone® colors and digital CMYK inks. In addition, the technology allows for variable text and images along with texture and tactile effects done as variable print. All of this executed with ink densities as opaque as screen-printing. And, all of these capabilities are available in one pass, on one press and result in award-winning labels with eye-catching shelf presentation for brand owners.
