Synthetic Tags and Labels are the Solution for the Most Demanding Applications

Random Lake, WI - Badger Tag & Label Corporation developed a proprietary
synthetic stock and prints custom tags and labels on it as well as on a range of other
synthetics. These stocks have characteristics that make them the best solution for the
most demanding applications.

"Companies that use pressure-sensitive paper labels and steel or metal tags
can benefit from the features synthetic stocks offer and can usually save money when
compared to these traditional types," says Kathy Rassel, Sales/Marketing Manager at
Badger. "Synthetic stocks are also more environmentally friendly because they are
not made from tree pulp and they are recyclable."

For tags and labels that must withstand the most rigorous as well as a variety of
conditions, synthetic is the answer. Synthetic stocks are UV stabilized so fading isn't a factor. The waterproof, chemical and tear resistant qualities mean they can go through manufacturing processes and remain intact through their final destination. The ability to fold without cracking and puncture resistance also makes tags and labels on
synthetic stocks more resilient. These stocks can go through temperature ranges from
220°F to -70°F which makes tags and labels printed on them ideal for industrial
settings. Many synthetic stocks are available either coated or uncoated and can be
printed with additional information using dot-matrix and thermal methods.

"While the majority of companies we work with want a preprinted custom tag or
label for a specific use," says Rassel, "we also diecut custom shapes and sizes of
blank synthetic stock."

Examples of industries and products that use tags on synthetic stocks are tree
farms and nurseries, membership cards, sewn in as product information on consumer
products, steel and related roll products, and sling tags. Labels on synthetic stocks are
used on containers for gasoline and other chemicals, consumer and industrial
products including food, and as warning labels.

Badger provides a variety of finishing options such as scoring, perforation,
lamination, and attachments which assures each custom tag and label best meets the
final use.

Badger Tag & Label Corporation has been producing custom tags and labels
since 1935. Headquartered in Random Lake, Wisconsin, they serve clients throughout
the nation. They print on both paper and synthetic stocks and deliver the finished
pieces in singles, rolls, sheets, ganged, or fanfolded. With a variety of finishing
options, Badger provides a custom piece from initial design through complete printed
