Flexlink LLC Enters Wine and Beverage Label Market with FlexSante™ Line of Uncoated Label Papers,
Cleveland, OH March 1, 2017 --- Flexlink LLC, a leading supplier to the tag and label market, today announced the introduction of its FlexSante™ Family of premium, un-coated label papers for cut-and-stack beverage label applications. This family of products will allow label designers to customize the finish, color and weight of their label paper, which will make their label unique and allow them to stand out from other beverages in retail channels.
By offering over 75 embossing patterns, numerous finishes, excellent color control and 6,000 lb. manufacturing run minimums, designers and marketers will be able to convey a premium look and feel that is unique to their brand. At the same time, Flexlink will also stock and convert standard wine and beverage grades for non-custom applications. If a stocked substrate is selected, the minimum order value is as low as $500. Flexlink LLC can provide the FlexSante™ Family of products in both rolls and sheets from its Cleveland, OH warehouse.
FlexSante™ Wine & Beverage Label Papers contain high wet strength, high wet and dry opacity and die cut well. Most grades within the FlexSante™ Family are suitable for foil stamping, lithography, embossing, and engraving. “Retail markets have become very crowded and wine and beverage producers are finding it difficult to differentiate themselves,” said Dale Schott, President of Flexlink LLC. “The FlexSante™ Family offers wine and beverage producers a way to communicate the quality of the product inside the bottle while also offering printers the ability to provide a unique substrate for their wine and beverage customers.”

Flexlink Launches FLEXDura® HE - Harsh Environment Line of Papers
As a valued partner and client, we are pleased to announce that as of March 28, 2016, Flexlink LLC’s harsh environment, paper tag products will be re-branded and will now be called FLEXDura® HE.
FLEXDura® HE will continue to offer the most wet-strength, tensile (both wet and dry) and overall durability of any cellulose-based product available. The technical characteristics have not changed and we have attached Product Technical Data for your review. As you can see, it will continue to be offered in 3 calipers and up to 8 different colors per caliper as stocked items. Custom colors and calipers will continue orders to be available for orders of 6,000 to 10,0000 lbs.
The increased level of service that we have developed over the past few years will continue and custom slitting and sheeting in small quantities will remain a key part of what our team here at Flexlink LLC does on a daily basis. A price list which has been stream-lined to make it easier to read is also attached to this letter.
In conjunction with this move, our heat resistant paper will now be called FLEXDura® HR. As you know, this paper targets non-print critical applications where heat resistance in the range of 500 degrees Fahrenheit or less is required. Product Technical information for this grade is attached as well.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity extend my thanks and gratitude for your business and your loyalty. Our passion for supplying specialized, technical flexible materials continues unwaveringly and we hope that this shows through on a daily basis.
