(UPM Raflatac, Tampere, 23 March 2011 at 14.00) - UPM Raflatac has launched a
new website for label and packaging designers. Pro Label Studio presents visual
examples and valuable information about the numerous possibilities that
self-adhesive label materials offer for building brands and enhancing the
shelf-presence of consumer products.

On the website, designers can learn about the challenges and requirements that
different packaging materials, special effects and printing techniques place on
label design and the choice of label material.

Pro Label Studio helps designers select the right label materials for end-uses
including wine, beverage and personal care labelling, and renders textured
previews of selected designs and materials on various kinds of product
packaging. By rotating the previews, users get a feel for how the selected
combinations work in real life.

For designers who want to create something new and exciting, Pro Label Studio
presents Innovations: new materials that offer fresh combinations of colour and
texture for innovative label solutions.

Pro Label Studio also provides access to more detailed technical product
information and an opportunity to order free samples of UPM Raflatac labelstock
products in Europe.
