Getting books to the right recipients

Information on the title, author, ISBN, barcode and price plays a critical role in the logistics chain for book distribution. Order-picking labels and address labels with this information ensure that books get to the right recipients. Labels can also be affixed to books for promotional purposes or used as advertising on other print media such as newspapers and magazines. Removable labels are a useful means of delivering magazines to subscribers and have many other mailing applications.

One label for all kinds of books – outstanding quality from HERMA:

Book and magazine covers can be very different: cloth, high-gloss varnish, matt print coating, open-pored board or shrink wrap. The demands on adhesives are correspondingly diverse. To prevent damage to valuable books, labels should always be removable without leaving any traces. They must also adhere securely during transport. This also applies to print media made of thinner materials, like newspapers and magazines.
