Spot Piggyback Labels: Multi-Layer Constructions to Speed Handling and Save Costs

Piggyback labels are multi-layer constructions featuring one self-adhesive label on top of another. The top label is removable and can be reapplied elsewhere, while the bottom label is stationary, remaining affixed to the original surface.

Dynamic and versatile, piggyback labels can be created in constructions that adhere to paper, plastics, cardboard and metals. Top labels can be smaller than bottom labels for fast and easy removal, or they can be the same size – with or without tabs for detachment.

In addition to promotional applications, piggyback labels can include barcodes to simplify and expedite tracking, provide an added level of security for traceability, and support chain-of-custody initiatives.  They can contain duplicate information to facilitate data accuracy, allowing the transfer of information from one item to another. Moreover, piggyback labels can save money and increase productivity by speeding up overall processing, rotating stock, identifying potential issues, simplifying kitting, and keeping production lines moving.

Also known as two-layer and double-layer labels, piggybacks are perfect for:

  • Business reply cards
  • Game board tokens
  • Inventory tracking
  • Medical records
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Product registrations
  • Promotions
  • Shipping returns
  • And much more!
