Case Labels

CFS stocks a wide variety of sizes and types of Paper Case labels including Thermal Transfer, Direct Thermal, Oversized Rolls, 3 inch and 1-inch core sizes and Liner-less Direct Thermal Labels. Standard Paper Labels are not recommended by the RPC Suppliers. Some retailers will refuse produce shipments if paper labels are used on RPCs. In addition, the use of paper labels on RPCs can damage the cleaning equipment and permanently damage the RPCs. Five Strategically located warehouses throughout the US translates to shorter lead times and reduced freight costs.


Standard Paper labels are not permitted for use on RPCs.

Pallet Tags

CFS offers customized Pallet Tags using Paper, Polypropylene, and Double Layer Piggy Back construction. This construction is used when the Tag must adhere to Wax Corrugated Boxes in humid, wet environments and eliminates label curl and the use of staples to attach the Tags to boxes.

Bin Labels

We have adhesives suitable for wax corrugated, RPC, and wooden crate bins to name a few. These labels track produce within an actual facility and meet the standards for the produce traceability initiative.

Custom Labels and Adhesives
