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.
