Studio features content, trends, research and innovations about label materials and technology.

Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials (www.averydennison.com) has launched the Inspiration Studio, an online tool designed to help packaging designers, as well as brand owners and brand managers explore ways to get more from their packaging and decoration strategies with pressure-sensitive labels.

A component of Avery Dennison’s www.EnhanceYourBrand.com website, the Inspiration Studio features content about trends, innovation and sustainability. Each category includes supporting articles and research highlighting the latest trends in package design, strategies for creating shelf differentiation, and sustainability efforts.

“This is a content-rich portal for consumer packaged goods companies, brand managers and packaging designers to turn to for insights about shelf impact,” says Jon Maley, global vice president marketing for Avery Dennison. “The Inspiration Studio focuses on helping brand owners win at the shelf, which is the single most critical packaging success factor.”
