ALPS and Avery come together for World Label Day

On 3 February 2019, Association of Label Printers and Suppliers (ALPS) and Avery Dennison will come together to announce ‘World Label Day’ – an extraordinary milestone for the label industry.

“For any industry, it becomes indeed a very significant day, when foundation for such historical event is laid down. In order to give shape to such a significant day for the label industry, ALPS has joined hands with Avery Dennison,” said Gururaj Ballarwad, president ALPS.

“Only one name comes to our minds when we think of pressure sensitive labels – R Stanton Avery. Famously known as The Sticker Man, his name is synonymous to ‘innovation and leadership’ as he pioneered the self-adhesive labeling technology and opened gates to new avenues of technology. And there is no better way to commemorate him than laying the foundation of the World Label Day on his birthday – 13 January,” said Ballarwad.
