AveryPRO Gets Campaigns Election Ready


As the upcoming election year swings into full gear, print jobs for political materials will heat up as we head toward the primaries and general election. From fundraising events to mailing campaign materials, customers will be looking for quality, custom-printed patriotic labels to promote their campaigns and candidates.  AveryPRO label stock provides exactly what they’ll need, featuring a premium base for colors to attain their full brightness and top quality materials that offer durability and exceptional results.

All your red, white and blue designs will pop when using AveryPRO white glossy substrates  “I Voted” labels, name badges or seals. For a more rustic look, try the Kraft Brown stock that gives everything from supporter gifts to envelopes a down-home feel.  All of these high-quality substrates come in convenient 12” x 18” sheets and feature premium benefits that everyone will appreciate. Easy Peel® makes labeling a snap—just bend the sheet, pop up the label edge, peel and stick. And when you’re done, the sheet lies flat without damaging any unused labels.  The TrueBlock® feature completely blocks out everything underneath so you can easily cover up mistakes on envelopes or brochures.

All AveryPRO substrates are engineered for liquid and dry toner digital presses, and are ideal for short-run, print-on-demand requirements. The substrates offer the highest quality print density, ink anchorage and durability. The free Press-Align™ design templates provide seamless integration with existing imposition software programs and will save you valuable prepress time and costs associated with alignment issues, error-related fixes and reprints.  You can also showcase the versatility of the label stock by inspiring customers with the customizable sales & marketing tools targeted specifically at elections and campaign events.

AveryPRO label stock is available in a variety of materials and multiples sizes of rectangles, circles and ovals, as well as full sheet.  Your customers will love being able to choose the exact style of label they’re looking for to promote their candidate or causes.

AveryPRO™ Offers New Unique Materials for Digital Presses

With the introduction of unique label stock, engineered specifically for liquid and dry toner presses, AveryPRO expands their specialty label offering for the pressure-sensitive category.  Highlighted by the beautiful Soft Touch™ substrate, the new materials provide printers and designers more options to help fill the special requests they receive from their customers, while their customers get the ability to produce products and packaging that really pops.

The beautiful Soft Touch substrate, which is exclusive to AveryPRO, offers an understated elegance that transforms a basic label design into a touchable experience.  The luxurious material has a special coating that provides a velvety feel that begs to be touched, and all without the need for a post-print coating, which reduces costs, increases profitability, and speeds up the printing process.  

While this type of finish has been available for magazine and book covers as well as packaging, it is the first of its kind in the pressure-sensitive label market.  It’s ideal for branding health and beauty items like lotions, candies, soaps and cosmetics, but it’s also perfect for adding an elegant touch to any item needing a high-quality look and feel.

AveryPRO is also offering a Silver Matte material exclusively for HP Indigo presses that offers printers and designers a metalized look without the use of metallic inks, saving time and money. The soft silver color and smooth surface of this substrate are perfect for adding an upscale look to health and beauty products and event and party accessories. The label stock also features a permanent adhesive and is water and tear resistant making it ideal for electronic asset tagging, beverage labeling and more.

Along with these two new exciting materials, AveryPRO adds a variety of Glossy, Semi-Gloss and Clear label stock available with permanent and removable adhesive, a durable PET full-sheet stock, and new Name Badges materials. All of these materials are ideal for short-run, print-on-demand applications and are available in a variety of full-sheet and pre die-cut shapes and sizes.

Are your chemical labels compliant with the Globally Harmonized System?

The OSHA-mandated system for classifying and labeling chemicals impacts companies that produce, ship or use hazardous chemicals. As of June 1, 2016, workplaces must be GHS-compliant and update labels on chemical and secondary containers as needed to avoid fines.

As an AveryPRO distributor, Anchor Paper has the labels you need! AveryPRO has made it easy to create & print your own chemical labels with UltraDuty Labels using GHS software & templates on your desktop printer.
