2011 TLMI Awards: The Best in Tag and Label Printing

High-quality and innovative tag and label printing was on display again this year in the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute's (TLMI) annual Label Awards contest.

Entrepreneurial Spirit –Polischuk

Entrepreneurs seem to have a lot of traits in common, but several traits especially stand out to me—hard work, passion, and the willingness to "bet the farm."

Extending Label Footprints

There is a wide variety of ETL constructions, some incorporating a high-degree of creativity and complexity. Valley Forge Tape & Label (VFT&L) has an extensive background in ETL production.

Not Going Quietly

Clayton, N.C.-based 3C Packaging has logged a performance record worthy of the exclamation point that graces the company's logo. Specifically, the converting company, which also produces printed literature inserts and unit dose compliant packages, recently reported 20 percent growth during the 2010-2011 fiscal year.

Passion for the Business

One thing is certain, TLMI is loaded with industry leaders, people who have a passion for the tag and label industry and who, in many cases, have devoted their lives to it. Ken Kidd, recently retired co-CEO of WS Packaging Inc., certainly fits this description.
