Supply Chain Disruptions Continue

March 23, 2021

As the global Covid-19 pandemic continues, the label supplies industry has experienced a massive increase in demand. This demand increase, combined with supply chain issues, has had rippling effects throughout our industry.

We anticipate price increases on the majority of our label and adhesive supplies beginning April 2021. This is due to the continuing challenges of increased raw material costs, base chemical costs, and extended lead times. Additionally, we see increases due to disruptions from:

  • COVID-19
  • Weather-related
  • Strained logistics pipeline
  • Struggling freight demands

We believe additional cost increases on raw materials and ongoing lead times will continue throughout 2021 and we encourage our customers to work with their account manager for updates on prices, supply chain issues, and actions to help offset longer lead times.

Thank you for your business and continued support.
