Quick Stick™ Receipts

These thermal-printed receipts stick directly to the product package or container, allowing restaurants to save money by using less preprinted packaging, make fewer errors, fill orders faster and increase customer satisfaction. The labels have an adhesive on one side, and the other side can be preprinted or custom-printed at the point of sale (POS). Labels securely adhere to cups, clamshells and bags, and can be cut to the exact length needed, further saving material and production costs.

Try On Pack

try-on-pack-copyThe Try On Pack is a packaging technology invented and patented by Lew Barton. The technology allows production of On Pack Premiums via a simple process utilizing minor modifications to standard form-fill-seal machines that results in a pouch with an integral collar loop. This required no additional parts or tape or anything else to loop the pouch over the neck of a bottle to provide the consumer with an on-pack premium when purchasing the intended product.

Lew developed this concept for a large vodka brand which used it to produce samples of a Bloody Mary mix, hanging around the neck of the vodka bottle.
