Flexo Concepts, fellow flexo suppliers to feature liqueur label and tasting at Labelexpo Europe

Flexo Concepts and fellow flexo suppliers have come together once again to showcase their latest product advancements at Labelexpo Europe 2017.

The project is a collaboration between Esko, Flexo Concepts, Harper, MacDermid, Siegwerk, Raflatac, Dirty Water Distillery and Clemson’s Sonoco Institute of Packaging.

This year, the group produced a unique bottle label featuring five-color modified process printing, metallic ink, custom die lines and high-quality print.

Utilizing UV Flexo L39-5 inks from Siegwerk, TruPoint Orange doctor blades from Flexo Concepts, a Konsberg digital cutter from Esko, 1200-line screen aniloxes from Harper, Digital Rave printing plates from MacDermid exposed on Esko’s new Crystal XPS System, and VANISH label stock from Raflatac, the label was printed at the Sonoco Institute of Packaging on an OMET VaryFlex 530 press.

Dirty Water Distillery provided bottles of their honey liqueur from their micro-distillery located in the heart of Flexo Concepts’ hometown, Plymouth, Massachusetts. This liqueur is handcraf­ted from the finest ingredients, local honey and a variety of spices, to provide a delicious cordial for visitors to taste at Labelexpo Europe.

Each supplier will offer tastings of this exclusive “Bee Sting” honey liqueur at their Labelexpo stands while showcasing the label. To see the label or try a sample, stop by any of the following stands at the show:
