Pressure-sensitive labels are the core business for Label World. The company also provides a complete range of custom label solutions beyond basic and prime labels, including tags and inserts, point of purchase, extended content labels, plow-folds, and pouches and packets. Additional capabilities include specialty material stocks, varnishes and stamping for premium effects, direct thermal paper and tags, and thermal transfer paper and films. 

WS Packaging Group, Inc., with more than 45 years of experience, is one of the largest printing and label converting operations in North America. The majority owner is J.W. Childs Associates, L.P. a private equity firm based in Boston.
