ModTek is a privately held manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels and tags.
Founded in 2006, ModTek has quickly become a major supplier in the primary label market. Thanks to its dedicated team of industry professionals, strong vendor partnerships and an unrivaled commitment to quality and service, ModTek will keep its delivery dates so you can keep yours.
ModTek continues to find ways of being environmentally responsible in an industry in which it is typically difficult to do so. Earning an environmental stewardship award has been a shining jewel in our crown as we have strived to reduce our carbon footprint through our 150 kilowatt solar array, full conversion to LED lighting throughout our 33,000 square foot facility, and recently upgraded HVAC system. Finally, we have started to convert company vehicles to electric. By 2022, our entire sales fleet will be electric.
In an effort to raise the bar for performance and lower the cost on small production runs, ModTek has invested in converting a conventional press into a hybrid digital press. The value in this conversion is that we can utilize ALL of our current tooling as well as coatings to digitally print smaller quantities of labels without the cost of plates or changeovers. We can do this without sacrificing the quality of print that ModTek has so aggressively committed to.
Foil and Embossing
Cold Foil, Hot Stamping and Embossing are great ways to add embellishments to your label. We are capable of doing all of them.
For cost effectiveness (substrates permitting) we can utilize “cold foil” which is the process of printing metalized-looking graphics onto the label material.
Hot Stamping is another way of getting metalized print onto a label. Hot Stamp is usually used in Wine/Spirits when a porous paper material is preferred and cold foil is not an option. We are able to run hot stamp in-line and offline. The advantage to offline hot stamping is that the tooling is much less expensive and on a short production run, there is a significant savings.
As with all areas of printing, graphics need to be prepared for the medium in which they will be produced. We utilize an industry specific prepress tool named Packz; a software package designed to streamline the process of taking a client’s art file and preparing it for print. This applies to both Digital printing as well as conventional.
Hi Definition Flexographic Printing
ModTek utilizes high quality Narrow Web presses built by PCMC. These machines are heavy ALL STEEL workhorses that are designed for quality. We currently have 5, 3 of which are capable of running full UV inks. UV inks are known for durability and chemical resistance. This works very well in the Craft Beer, Wine and Spirits markets where the labels are typically exposed to moisture submersion and alcohol.
All of our presses are capable of running roll to roll or we can produce sheeted goods as well.
