Shopping trends are changing thanks to new technologies that are helping companies create a more personalized approach.

One trend that hasn’t changed, however, is consumers’ desire for eco-friendly items. Businesses should note, though, that consumers are no longer willing to believe brands’ marketing campaigns. A report by Euromonitor 2024 Consumer Trends found that customers “want organizations to step up and show proof of their eco pledges.”

This holiday season, separate yourself from others with our environmentally-friendly AdVantageVinyl®, which is both biodegradable1 and recyclable2.

Sound too good to be true? Our claims are verified by independent laboratory testing using the ASTM-D5511-18 method, with impressive results:

Based on our independent lab testing, our 6 Gauge Adhesive-Backed AdVantageVinyl® will degrade more than 50% in less than two years once it has reached a modern landfill (ASTM-D5511-18).

Our 8 Gauge Clear AdVantageVinyl® will degrade nearly 40% in two and a half years, according to our independent lab testing once it has reached a modern landfill. (ASTM-D5511-18).

AdVantageVinyl® can be used to create adhesive-backed products, retail price tags, retail ready products, and point-of-purchase materials — as well as other items.

Our adhesive-backed pockets and pouches offer excellent document protection and can be added to almost anything such as business or index cards, promotional materials, and work instructions. Point-of-purchase and retail point-of-sale display materials that can be made with AdVantageVinyl® include holders for price tags, retail brochures, shelf tags, signage, take-one literature, and UPC tags. Our retail-ready products include fishing & hunting license protectors, passport covers and business card holders.

If you’re unsure of what you may need this holiday season, but have some ideas in mind, our Minnesota-based team can help. With more than 5,000 dies in house — which we have been creating since the 1970s — our products can be customized to meet your exact needs – and we can make any size!

Our U.S.-based manufacturing plant is also an asset for customers as we can complete both small and large runs to help manage inventory in an efficient, effective manner.

As you begin to concentrate on your 2024 holiday sales strategy, remember that our team is always ready to help you bring your most ambitious goals to life.
