Thomas Dahbura is The Label Guru

Meet the Label Guru in our New Linerless Labels Video

Hub Labels introduces the Label Guru in a fun new video promoting Ravenwood Linerless Labels, an innovative product designed for high volume manufacturing and processing and sleeving approach that eliminates the separate silicon release liner found pressure sensitive labels or thins out traditional board sleeves. Delivering consistency on-shelf, increased surface print area and process efficiencies, primary Linerless markets include meat, fish and poultry categories. Secondary markets include fresh produce, convenience and desserts.

Sleeving or full-wrap applications are effective at reducing the typical material weight of traditional sleeves while speeding up efficiencies. Popular for many years in the UK and Europe with over 12 billion+ applied annually, Ravenwood Linerless Labels and Sleeves bring high-end packaging solutions to the table with a variety of application styles, including:
Linerless labels provide all the benefits of self-adhesive labeling with improved efficiencies, volume applications and environmental advantages through their non-utilization of carrier backing paper.
Available in silicone coated paper, board or synthetic materials, standard Linerless labels deliver a semi-adhesive label format which partially adheres to pack through a series of technically placed glue strips. Labels faces are then supplied without carrier backing paper. Reel weight is therefore significantly reduced by up to 40%, meaning less weight waste, storage and reel changeovers.
As an extended pack format, Linerless also serves to deliver consistency on-shelf as well as increased surface area print to better service information and legislative requirements.
