Back in the day, labels didn’t automatically stick. You either had to use a glue pot to apply the label, or moisten the pre-applied dry glue with water first. In 1935, R. Stanton (“Stan”) Avery changed all that. His vision for an easy-to-use self-adhesive label came to market with the commercial introduction of Kum-Kleen labels, and the modern label was born.
Stan Avery’s pioneering spirit has grown to be Avery Products Corporation, the world’s largest supplier of self-adhesive labels, specialty converted media and software solutions to enable short-run digital printing in businesses and homes alongside complementary products sold through distributors and mass market retailers under the Avery® brand. Avery Products Corporation, a division of CCL Industries, is based in Brea, California. To learn more about Avery Products, our website at www.avery.com.
