Kum-Kleen Products, Stan Avery’s original company name, advertised the ability of the self-adhesive label to be removed without leaving a trace. When customers asked for their names to be printed on the labels, he added print using a hand-cranked printing press. Initially, the label’s face was made of simple, white paper. On the face of modern labels, there may be brightly coloured graphics and images made of cloth, plastic, or metallic films.
Stan Avery chose Kum-Kleen Products as the name of his first company to emphasise the ability of a self-adhesive label to be removed without leaving a mark.
When customers requested that their names be printed on the labels, he added print using a hand-cranked printing press. Initially, the label’s front was just a piece of plain white paper.
Today, the label’s face may be composed of cloth, plastic, or metallic films. It may also include designs and images in a variety of colourful colours.
Stan and Dorothy Avery founded the resale, industrial, and converting business divisions of Avery Adhesives Label Corporation on September 21st, 1946.
Labels in the resale category were resold to customers by 300 wholesalers, distributors, and 1200 retail establishments, most of which were stationery stores.
Stan came to the conclusion that it would be impossible to design and produce labels for the entire world from Southern California. If Avery wants to keep growing, it will need to launch autonomous operations across multiple industries. As a result of this realisation, a second company was created to provide self-adhesive base materials to other manufacturers and a franchising programme for global label makers. In 1956, William Sessions and Avery in the UK reached a licence agreement.
The first production facility in the UK began operations in Cumbernauld, a neighbourhood of Glasgow, Scotland, in 1964. A variety of copier, computer, industrial, and price-marking labels was available.
