Digital Printer Award Winner

We are very pleased to have won the award for digitally printed label of the year at the Digital Printer Awards with the exclusive limited edition Jack Vettriano Gin labels. The awards were held at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square last Thursday 7th November 2019.

These premium labels demanded to be produced as close as possible to the original painting’s, which are a rather beautiful oil on canvas. Amberley achieved this effect with the combination of material choice, Martele blanc from Avery Dennison with its subtle texture and the exacting photographic quality of the HP Indigo press.

The limited editions were sequentially numbered to indicate the rarity of the product and promote the exclusivity of the bottles. Several ultra rare editions were individually signed by the illustrious artist Jack Vettriano.

Amberley Labels also won a FINAT Award in June for this very same label. We have had great success and gained valued recognition through being Finalists for both the UK Packaging Awards and Printweek Awards this year.

Amberley Labels awarded Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certification

We are delighted to announce that Amberley Labels have been awarded FSC® certification. This will allow our customers to request that the FSC® branding be included on their materials. It demonstrates a continued chain of custody from forest to consumer, ensuring that the paper used has been produced from managed sustainable sources.

What is FSC® certified paper?

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is an organization dedicated to promoting responsible management of the worlds forest. As an FSC certified company we can trace the wood used for your project from the forest where it was sourced, right the way through production until it lands on your desk as a piece of print.

FSC certified forests ensure:

The forests biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes are maintained

Socially beneficial forest management which helps both local people and society at large to enjoy long term benefits

Economically viable forest management to ensure financial profit is not at the expense of the forest resources, the ecosystem or affected communities

What is the FSC® chain of custody certification?

The FSC chain of custody (CoC) is the path taken by products from the forest, or in the case of recycled materials from the moment when the material is reclaimed, to the point where the product is sold with an FSC claim and/or it is finished and FSC labelled. The CoC includes each stage of sourcing, processing, trading, and distribution where progress to the next stage of the supply chain involves a change of product ownership.

Any change of ownership in the supply chain of FSC-certified products requires the establishment of effective CoC management systems at the level of the respective organisation and their verification by an independent FSC-accredited certification body, if the organisation wants to make an FSC claim about their products.

FSC certification of such management systems is designed to provide a credible assurance that products which are sold with an FSC claim originate from well-managed forests, controlled sources, reclaimed materials, or a mixture of these. FSC CoC certification thereby facilitates the transparent flow of goods made from such.

Double Seal of Excellence

We are delighted to receive the BPIF (British Printing Industries Federation) Health & Safety and Environmental, a double Seal of Excellence Award. Dawn Reid, Regional Director visited us here on site last month to present the awards to Steve Oliver, Project Manager.  Amberley Labels are committed to continued improvement and development for the future.

Steve Oliver (pictured) said, “Here at Amberley Labels H&S is taken very seriously along with sustainability and recycling which are both important to us. We have invested in reducing our carbon footprint with LED lighting, voltage optimization and over 40% of our company fleet is now electric or hybrid. We have met great targets by simply segregating our label conversion waste to ensure that 100% is diverted from landfill. So, to have some recognition by way of a BPIF Seal of Excellence, that we practice this at all levels in both H&S and Environmental is very important to us.”

Dawn added, “The BPIF Seal of Excellence Awards are a great way for individuals, departments and businesses to demonstrate their expertise both internally and to the print industry. Often the SoE Award is just one stage in a programme of continued improvement, and I know the team are keen to obtain the HR SoE to bag themselves the full suite and the BPIF Seal of Business Excellence too. Well done to all of those who’ve contributed to this success.”
