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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
