Benefits of outsourcing your container labeling
Developing the ideal label specs, sourcing the appropriate components, and then combining those to create beautiful packaging that’s free from any defects can be an intimidating prospect without knowing the right questions to ask & levers to pull. We’re more than a contract package decorator – we’re a partner & resource for our customers to lean on. We’ve labeled over 1 billion packages between shrink sleeving, pressure sensitive labeling, and direct screen printing and we’ll utilize all of that experience to help our customers attain packaging aesthetics that will stand out in today’s sea of sameness.
Package decorating & labeling equipment is expensive & can tie up precious capital. Utilizing a contract packaging service like Eastgate Group allows for capital to be reinvested in growth instead of being tied up in expensive equipment. Our facility has over 20 production lines and a wide variety of state-of-the-art machines, ready to deliver the perfect packaging application for your specific product without the need for big investment. Ready to experiment with a new label material, a different bottle size, or just need to do a short run? Forget the equipment purchase & lead times – we’ve got you covered.
Between the storage of raw containers & temperature-sensitive labels, production lines & equipment, tooling & parts, material handling, inbound & outbound trucks, and warehousing of the finished goods, a lot of space is required to achieve even a minimum level of efficiency in package decorating. Our space was meticulously designed & purpose-built to maximize product quality, production efficiency, and flexibility for our customers. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your product was labeled in a facility that is GFSI certified, Organic Handler certified, kosher certified, and FDA registered.
A team of experienced & dedicated package decorators working in a facility full of optimized production equipment means that we’re able to provide our customers with fully decorated goods at industry-leading turnaround times. No more 18-month lead times for equipment & tooling. No more missed deadlines & unwelcomed surprises from vendors that decorate packaging as a side gig. We’re big enough to support your fastest growing product line & small enough to be fast, flexible, and keep our promises. Fully decorated containers within 4 weeks? We can do it.
Operating a packaging line means additional headcount. Employees need to be dependable, laser-focused on product quality, and capable of operating complex machinery. The average line operator at EG has been labeling products with us for over 6 years, allowing our customers to benefit from a roster chock-full of experience & dedication to the art of beautiful package decoration. Spend more time managing your brand and less time managing your production staff.

We’ve learned the right questions to ask, materials to use, machine adjustments to make, and pitfalls to avoid, so that our customers can enjoy the advantage of beautiful packaging without all of the headache.
