The latest information, samples and news about Actega’s pioneering solutions for sustainable label decoration including Signite and Ecoleaf  will be available at the Actega booth.

Actega’s innovative Signite decoration solution enables brands and converters to significantly reduce waste, while providing expanded design flexibility and recyclability and reuse possibilities. These benefits are a result of the unique qualities of Signite decorations, which were developed with a clear focus on improved sustainability while maintaining the efficiency provided by commercial narrow web printing presses and processes.

By showcasing the many opportunities and benefits made possible by this ground-breaking sustainable metallization solution, Actega aims to excite the market for Ecoleaf’s US launch foreseen in 2023.
