Crack’n Peel® brand products run and cut like paper and are used in a variety of applications such as specialty premium, prototype and short-run labels, kid’s stickers, and backstage concert passes.

Commercial and offset printers and fine paper merchants received a package of labels titled, “Fact of life: Some labels are better than others” with five sheets of classic tongue-in-cheek social labels like “Go-Getter and Suck-Up” printed on Crack’n Peel premium pressure sensitive paper.

The mailing showcases the features and advantages of Crack’n Peel® brand products:

Proprietary diagonal score pattern on the back of Crack’n Peel is exclusively Avery Dennison’s and provides up to 25% better yield when printing multiple labels per sheet. The diagonal score allows labels to be nested in any pattern without risk of die-cutting or guillotining along a vertical score line.

§ 1 ¼” spaced diagonal scoring pattern guarantees that every label will have a scoreline. Application time is quicker because there will always be a score line to assist the user in peeling off the liner.
