ClearBurst Labels

ClearBurst labels are a patented, scent sampling device that delivers encapsulated oils held between two layers of film substrate. When the consumer peels back the top ply, it ruptures the microcapsules delivering an accurate rendition of your scent. ClearBurst labels can be sampled multiple times as the encapsulation heals itself when the ply is resealed. Unopened, the scent has a shelf life of at least one year. There is no pre-scent until the label is opened.

ClearBurst labels are the only scent sampling label approved by the USPS for use on a mailing piece with no cover or envelope. They can be used on a postcard and will not add to the cost of postage..

The labels are available in virtually any shape or size in up to six colors. They can be made clear to showcase printed graphics or can be printed to actively interact or compliment the printed graphics. ClearBurst labels are perfect for use in marketing fine fragrance, consumer products, sales promotions and events.

Auto Release ClearBurst Labels

Also available, our Auto Release ClearBurst Label affixes to the inside of a a folder or flap and applied with a glue spot on the opposite page. Once the consumer flips to the next reader or opens an insert, the ClearBurst self-separates releasing the microcapsules delivering an accurate rendition of your product's specific scent. The ClearBurst label can be sampled multiple times. Unopened the encapsulated scent has a shelf life of at least a year.

This versatile scent delivery device acts as a novelty piece that can deliver your company message through every angle of print advertising.

Aquatouch and Aquaflex

Sixth Scents Encapsulated AquatouchTM/Aquascreen Coatings and varnish:

Another scent sampling device more commonly known as Touch & Burst is one of the most popular and least expensive products available today. This can be used for fine fragrance, beauty, personal care, consumer product, food, and beverage sampling. The encapsulated oils are released when the microcapsules containing the scent oils are broken by touch or scratching. We formulate the microcapsules into sheet fed and web varnishes, as well as water based formulations for flexo or aqueous coater applications. Recently many clients are beginning to take notice of our spot aqueous coating technology "Aquatouoch" our encapsulated aqueous fragrance coatings. Applications have been on packaging, within printed case bound books, on product sell sheets and in printed catalog/mailer form.

Our application process will typically allow for more than 100 interactions within a 1.25" sample area that only requires a light touch of your fingertip across the sample area to experience the sample.

Scents-able Coatings

Scents-able Coatings embed essential oils into the fibers of the paper prior to the printing production. Our coatings can be applied to almost any uncoated paper in multiple weights. There is no activation required by the consumer. The embedded oils slowly emit the scent by process of evaporation.

Scents-able Coatings can be printed using our recommended UV print production process, delivering superior 4 color reproduction of your creative graphics. This unique media can be die cut, embossed and stamped like any normal uncoated paper. These applications will not affect the scent rendition once manufacturing and curing is complete. Scents-able Coatings can also be applied via silk screen, roller coater, or IR/UV coater making it affordable in different quantities and sizes.

This scent application must be kept fresh via BOPP or laminated film pouches until opening to activate.

Fragrance Strips

Fragrance Strips are used in magazine and catalog inserts, bind-ins, blow-ins, statement enclosures and remittance envelopes where a paper flap is pulled back to release micro encapsulated scent. The fragrance strip is a flexible and diverse tool that can deliver your product's unique scent.

If you are looking to deliver more than one scent, the Fragrance Strip can be manufactured to deliver multiple scent renditions. Whether targeting a large audience through mass advertising or a specific demographic through a direct mail campaign, the Fragrance Strip is a cost effective solution.

Fragrance Strips can be run for full page magazines, bind-in inserts and blow-in inserts. For critical custom fragrance work, we run 70 or 80# Sterling Fragrance Gloss Text. For less critical scent matching, our heaviest stock is 9pt and our lightest is 50# text.
