What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

Due to legislation changes in Europe and North America, Subway was facing a tax/duty levied for every plastic bag sold.  As a result, Subway needed an eco-friendly solution that would eliminate the use of plastic bags thereby eliminating the additional taxes/duties.

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

Since 2000, Label Systems has manufactured over 1 million labels consisting of 387 custom variations for Respironics Inspiration Elite Compressor Nebulizer System.  As part of the relationship, Respironics and Label Systems worked together periodically to discuss ways to reduce costs.  However, due to the strict label specifications and requirements only incremental cost cutting measures were achieved annually.

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

This changed dramatically in 2010 with a design change to the Inspiration Elite System.  The original design of the nebulizer had an indentation for label placement which drove the strict label specifications regarding type of material, adhesive and thickness.  As part of the new design the label indentation depth was reduced allowing Label Systems to explore different types of materials that were now available.  Label Systems identified a clear velvet poly vinyl chloride material that had the same look, feel and durability required by Respironics.  After extensive testing, Respironics agreed the new material would work.

 

What benefits did the client receive as a result of our solution?

One of the key benefits provided by the new material was that it cost much less than the original material used resulting in a substantial cost savings  of  $100 K annually for Respironics.  Additionally, the manufacturing process using the new material also reduced the turn-a-round time from 2-3 weeks to 1-2 weeks allowing Respironics to better serve their clients


Big Island LogoBIG ISLAND LAND AND CATTLE COMPANY, LLC

Big Island Land And Cattle Company, LLC in Paauilo, Hawaii is a private company categorized under Livestock Producers. 

 

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

Big Island Beef required a label that would tell a story of the Hawaiian Island and visually express the legacy of the company.  The label also had to meet the varying ultra-violet and temperature conditions the label would be subjected too.

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

Working with Big Island Beef, we gathered as much information as possible on both the company and island. Next, LSI’s art department created several different innovative and creative designs for Big Island Beef’s feedback.  Based on the feedback, LSI refined the winning label which incorporated traditional Hawaiian folk art, the state flower and Mauna Loa volcano.  Concurrently, we gathered all the environmental specifications and conditions the label would be subjected to and selected the appropriate adhesive designed to meet any and all wet/cold application requirements.

 

What benefits did the client receive as a result of our solution?

Big Island Beef now has a label that exceeds the environmental requirements, tells its story and clearly distinguishes the company from the competition by incorporating traditional Hawaiian art, colorful state flower and Mauna Loa volcano.

They also produce fine products under a variety of well-known brands and private labels.  

 

Jardine Foods has been a customer of Label Systems since 2003. Our relationship began based on an initial walk through of Jardine’s plant.   As a result, Label Systems made some suggestions to help them with warehousing issues they were having regarding their labels. 

 

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

Jardine Foods was having trouble with labels smearing in transit to their customer locations, specifically Harry & David.

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

Based the analysis we conducted, it appeared that the varnish wasn’t strong enough for the transit process so production found a varnish that was more durable for this application. Additionally, Harry & David now wanted the label to be produced on brown craft paper.  So, we supplied different brown craft paper samples for them to review.  None of the papers matched the color Harry & David envisioned, so LSI‘s art department worked closely with Harry & David and created a unique technique using a 4 color process.  After several refining attempts with this unique technique, we were able to create a faux brown craft paper look with the color and  background desired by Harry & David. 

 

What benefits did the client receive as a result of our solution?

An economical solution that not only solved the smearing issue but also generated cost savings due to LSI’s unique technique using a very inexpensive faux craft paper instead of the heavy duty and very expensive brown craft paper.

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

MESI was having trouble finding the perfect label to suit all of the moving company’s label application needs. During moves, they discovered their current label’s adhesive was only adhering to a few of the application surfaces, when it was required that it must adhere to all surfaces. For example, it was discovered that some labels would stick better to corrugation and plastic, but not to glass or metal surfaces and vice versa.  Also, some adhesives while being removable, over time tended to transform into a permanent adhesive.  Both issues were causing hardships for MESI and its customers especially in the latter stages of their moves when it came time to remove the stickers and do their clean-ups. 

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

Starting with the premise that all of our material manufacturer’s would not guarantee the perfect label, we decided to run our own testing to find the right adhesive for all moving surface purposes.  Our extensive process involved testing many alternate adhesive materials and methodically logging the results then compiling a report which included our recommendation of the perfect label to MESI.

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

Selkirk was using a brand name paper stock called Kimdura which was very expensive and getting harder and harder to keep in stock.

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

LSI recommended a less expensive generic synthetic paper similar to Kimdura that had all the attributes and characteristics needed and was continually in stock.

 

What benefits did the client receive as a result of our solution?

The LSI solution saved Selkirk money by using the less expensive synthetic paper without sacrificing the quality and paper characteristics Selkirk required.

  •  Digital transformation

  • Environmental sustainability

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

As part of HP overall marketing campaign they sponsored the premiere of the “Sex and the City 2” movie.  HP needed an item for their “goodie” bag to be passed out to celebrities and attendees at this event.  The item needed to be co-branded with both HP and Sex and the City 2 logos.  The objective was to tie the item to HP’s current ad campaign – new sleek design that would fuse fashion and technology (tech couture).

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

LSI had previously created a “bling” USB with branded packaging for the Oxygen network.  This item was a perfect fit for the HP gift.  It merged technology with fashion.   LSI was able to work with our vendor to insure on time delivery and global distribution. We were also able to create and execute a unique billing program to satisfy HP’s multiple billing locations (cost centers).  HP also needed to allow different divisions (located in different countries) to purchase and receive this product.  However, because of budget constraints they needed to combine the quantities to receive a better price.

 

What benefits did the client receive as a result of our solution?

HP had a unique gift that blended both the movie premier and their new “glamour” look.  It was an excellent fit.  They also had a smooth/positive experience with LSI.  HP was able to place the order and we did the rest.   Hopefully, this project is the beginning of a long profitable relationship.

Pizza Hut Park Logo

PIZZA HUT PARK

Opened on August 6, 2005, Pizza Hut Park is a 145-acre multipurpose sports and entertainment facility located at the intersection of Main Street and Dallas North Tollway in Frisco, Texas and is the home of Major League Soccer's FC Dallas.

 

The combination of a world-class stadium and a sports park make Pizza Hut Park one of the best and most unique soccer facilities in the world. Included in the facility is the 20,500 state-of-the-art pro soccer stadium which features a built-in stage on the north end and 26 suites that are approximately 500 square feet in size. Located on the west side of the stadium, the suites are immediately above the lower bowl seating area and provide an outstanding view of both the playing field and the concert stage. By adding field seats above a state-of-the art Terraflor covering, the stadium can accommodate over 27,000 fans for concerts.

 

The facility has demonstrated to be one of the top venues in the United States for both professional and amateur soccer. The complex, which includes 17 tournament-grade fields used for youth and adult soccer, as well as high school sports and other events, has drawn over 1 million visitors each year since opening.

 

What business problem/issue/challenge did the client need to solve?

To move forward with the official grand opening even though the stadium would still be under construction.  Both FC Dallas and the Pizza Hut Park wanted a promo item that would let the public know that they apologize the park was not finished but they still appreciate them coming out. 

 

What creative/innovative solution did we provide to solve the problem?

A hard hat was selected as the promotional item which needed to have logos placed at 3 different locations on the hard hat.  LSI was able to purchase blank hard hats and produce the labels (creative solution) that could be applied to the hat in the desired locations. LSI also partnered with a fulfillment company that applied the labels in the required time frame.

 

What benefits did the client receive as a result of our solution?

Hard hat was an excellent item to involve the public in the opening day for the park and the team.   The item was decorated and delivered to meet the client’s requirements.  We also provided personnel to help distribute the hats at the gates on opening day.  We allowed the clients to concentrate on other issues by managing this project.

Komen was able to place one order to us and have the entire project done. They did not have to coordinate between several vendors. We eliminated paperwork for the client and save them time.
