Premade, individually printable stand-up pouches

With ARTYSIO it is possible to produce stand-up pouches using two different production methods: Once for all plannable runs in the production “print&pack“, or completely flexible on demand in the production “pack&print“!

One Stand up pouch – two processes

CONVENTIONAL “PRINT&PACK”

For plannable runs, the ARTYSIO film is first printed cost-effectively using aqueous inkjet printing and then made into stand-up pouches on the line.

REVOLUTIONARY “PACK&PRINT”

The ARTYSIO film is first processed on the line into unprinted stand-up pouches, which can then be individually printed later as required using aqueous inkjet.

The premade stand up pouch

The so-called pack&print variant is suitable for all small, highly flexible customer orders of up to 10,000 pieces and represents a completely new benchmark in the industry.

This ARTYSIO variant significantly shortens the delivery time of the current digitally printable stand-up pouches. Customers do not need own pouching equipment, nor do they place production orders. Just order the premade bags and print directly as required! It couldn’t be easier or faster!

Properties and benefits of the ARTYSIO „pack&print“ solution

Due to the oval welded bottom, the bag remains upright and offers an attractive product presentation at the point of sale. The pouches offer plenty of space on the front and back for an appealing and personalised design and information on ingredients and additives. The immediate drying of the inks enables seamless further processing.

Unfilled stand-up pouches can be stored efficiently and in a space-saving manner due to their practical flat shape, resulting in low storage and transport costs compared to other types of packaging.

ARTYSIO films are manufactured according to GMP guidelines and are therefore qualified as flexible, primary packaging for food & non-food applications where particularly high barrier properties are required to protect the freshness, aroma and appearance of the products.

By using different closure options, such as zippers or spouts, the liquid, pasty or granulated products are optimally offered and remain fresh for a long time due to the reclosure.

The prefabricated stand-up pouches can now be ordered for the filling quantities 100 ml, 250 ml and 500 ml. Contact us quickly and easily at artysio@sihl.com!

SIHL PRESENTS SOLUTIONS FOR ON-DEMAND COLOUR LABEL PRINTING

With its ENDURO and PICOFILM ranges, Sihl offers new solutions for the decentralised, on-demand printing of tearproof loop tags, hangtags and stick-on labels in short runs.

Their tearproof properties allow these grades to be used very safely – even when subjected to heavy loads. On laser and inkjet printers, the media guarantee the highest print quality and brilliant colour reproduction. The roll-to-roll process ensures easy handling and high productivity.These grades can be printed on both sides and are suitable for outdoor use.

On-demand printing makes it possible to manufacture exactly the desired run directly on site. In this way, less waste is created and no inventory is produced that increases working capital. Digital printing’s efficient and sustainable production also contributes to lower CO2 emissions, as no transport routes are involved and goods are available immediately. Customer-specific personalisation requests, such as simultaneous printing of advertising slogans, product information or batch numbers, can be fulfilled at any time.

Sihl at Fespa trade fair with environmentally friendly products for strong advertising

At Fespa 2022 in Berlin, which runs from 31 May to 3 June 2022, Sihl will be presenting products from the Signage & Photo segment suitable for numerous areas of application. In addition, its joint venture Perigon will be in attendance for the first time at the Sihl stand 2.2-B61 and will showcase its innovative technology for designing three-dimensional objects.

‘Environmental Social Governance’ (ESG) is a key element of Sihl’s strategy, and likewise the focus topics for this year’s Fespa are sustainability and innovation. Almost all Sihl paper-based products are FSC®-certified. In addition, Sihl develops and manufactures nearly every product at its Düren side, so they are ‘Made in Germany’. This guarantees high-quality products, reduced CO2 emissions and manufacturing processes with less environmental pollution, fewer environment risks and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Again being awarded the EcoVadis silver medal in the CSR rating is confirmation of acting with a sense of social responsibility.

New GreenGrafX product line

Sihl will be presenting its new GreenGrafX product line for the first time at Fespa 2022. The three grades GreenGrafX TriSolv Prime 135 P-CA Glossy (3685), GreenGrafX TriSolv Prime 135 BB P-CA Glossy (3683) and GreenGrafX PP Prime 170 EasyTack Satin (3529) are sustainable, PVC-free, self-adhesive papers/foils that are ideal for a wide range of indoor and outdoor advertising applications.

‘We’re particularly pleased that we will also be represented at Fespa for the first time and will be able to showcase our business’, says Steffen Ohr, Co-Managing Director of Perigon GmbH. Perigon’s innovative technology enables three-dimensional complex objects to be printed 360° all around, regardless of shape, material and size. Whether shoes, bottles, sporting equipment or household appliances – there are no limits to the design possibilities. And the topic of sustainability plays a major role at Perigon as well. By being able to manufacture only what is needed centralised and on-demand, waste is reduced and overproduction no longer occurs.

Experience innovation and sustainability. Sihl and Perigon look forward to your visit in hall 2.2, stand 2.2-B61!

Sihl as a pioneer in sustainability: First inkjet film based on 90 % PCR

As part of the ESG strategy, Sihl continues to lead the way in FACESTOCK, creating products and solutions that make the best possible use of available resources.

As a pioneer, Sihl is launching the first inkjet film based on 90% PCR
(= Post Consumer Recycled) BOPET at the end of April! It offers identical product benefits to its non-PCR counterpart and is ideally suited for razor-sharp product labels in print on demand. In addition to the resource-saving grades with reduced weight, this is another step towards a “green” range.

7054 PICOFILM CPr-50 gloss IHG1 is a transparent FACESTOCK film for the production of product labels. The front side has a glossy coating for variable information printing with water-based inkjet, and is suitable for both dye and pigment inks. The product has the same mechanical properties, so it is easy to process – just like the non-PCR grades (7858/7852) – while offering identical benefits: fast drying, with high colour brilliance, sharp-edged prints and good water resistance. The total weight of this film has also been reduced: This means more labels per roll and thus higher productivity.

Sihl FACESTOCK coatings combined with print-on-demand printing technology make it easier and more affordable to produce exactly the amount of labels needed while meeting customers’ personalisation requirements.  This reduces waste and CO2 emissions enormously.
