UPM Raflatac is launching a new visual sample book to showcase its premium label materials for wine, spirits, and craft beverages. Designed in collaboration with a team from  SGA Corporate & Packaging Design  led by chief designer  Giacomo Bersanetti, the book has been printed by leading Italian printing company  Multi-Color Corporation (MCC). The book was inspired by the details and perspectives of the surfaces of the natural world, such as barks, petals, shells, and feathers. ​

The sample book is designed to inspire, stimulate, and excite designers, brand owners, and wineries, providing them with a tool to help select the perfect label materials to showcase their high-quality products. It demonstrates how label designs and label materials can complement each other and showcases the huge range of visual possibilities offered by UPM Raflatac’s solutions and expertise.

The nine label designs printed on 18 different materials capture the naturally occurring patterns and forms that provide inspiration for designers, reflecting UPM Raflatac’s commitment to sustainable packaging options. The sample book includes 62 blank labels in a wire-bound waterfall and technical data sheets for the label materials, as well as general information about the adhesives and backings that they can be paired with.

“Working closely with SGA and MCC, we wanted to create a visually impactful resource to inspire label designers, converters, and others in the value chain by showing how our label materials provide the perfect canvas for premium branding and creative designs,” explains  Jay Betton, business segment manager, Wine, Spirits, and Craft Beverages, EMEIA. “The designs showcase the latest trends in the segment, and the materials included are designed to meet the most discerning aesthetic and technically demanding requirements.”

“The surfaces of the natural world represent a perfect analogy for these labelling materials and introduce a conceptual content to a catalogue that has also been designed to reflect UPM Raflatac’s commitment to operating with the utmost respect for the environment and its inhabitants,” describes Bersanetti.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
