Highlighting 2021 New Features
In February 2021, SKS rolled out a new Like Button feature to allow customers to keep track of their favorite products! All products now have a bottle icon button next to them. Customers can hover over this button to see how many likes any product has and click on it to "like" it. Customers must be logged in to their SKS Bottle Members Account in order to "like" products, which are then added to a personal Favorites List for easy access. Customers can find a link to view all products they have "liked" under their Favorites List in the Members Area!Don't have an account? Sign up here to use our new like feature!
In May 2021, SKS launched new Weekly Packaging Deals. Each week a mixture of three new top-selling surplus containers, caps, and accessories are offered at an extra discount. Our Weekly Deals can now be found at the bottom of our homepage, on their own dedicated page, and in weekly customer emails. These packaging deals last from Monday through Sunday each week with discounts sometimes as high as 50% off!
In November 2021, SKS implemented several changes to improve our entire label ordering process. We now have a user-friendly, easy-to-navigate custom label ordering form that is accessible on the website. New label design options are available, including more label sizes, shapes, corner options, and the ability to add custom text. Labels are now printed on BOPP plastic, which offers improved label strength, flexibility, clarity, and moisture resistance. SKS can also accept new artwork formats, upload high-resolution jpg images (min 300 dpi), customize your design through our form, or provide finalized PDF artwork. Additionally, we have improved the overall process turnaround time. Customers will now receive their proof within 1-2 business days and receive their labels on an average of 7-8 business days after artwork approval. Finally, if customers run into a design issue, they can also request help using a new form for minor artwork updates.
Custom labels are a great way to help your products stand out. Labels that include your business' logo play an important part in customer brand recognition and can help create a cohesive product line. Labels that include ingredients and product information are helpful to customers and sometimes even essential when creating and selling products. SKS offers a variety of label shapes and sizes for all of your packaging needs. Our custom label form can be used to create an array of unique labels to showcase your brand and products properly.
