Hinged labels work great where there is a lack of space on a container. A hinged label is also an option for uniquely shaped containers.

In a down economy even the most stubborn consumers are receptive to money saving offers. Shoppers want to save money and want to know about the products they are buying, making on-pack promotional labels ideal communicators.
