Discount Labels Celebrates 50 Years Of Custom Label Excellence

May 27, 2015

New Albany, IN (PRWEB) May 27, 2015 -- Discount Labels is celebrating 50 years in the custom label business this month with customer appreciation promotions and a celebratory picnic for employees.

Fred Conway, Indiana businessman and firefighter, founded the company in May 1965. Mr. Conway invented the Emergency Phone Sticker which was used on household phones nationwide for decades. After setting up a national network of distributors, moving to its current New Albany location, and investing in presses, Discount Labels quickly became America’s largest custom label printer selling only to the trade, a position it still holds a half century later.

Today, the company boasts a fully Integrated ecommerce customer front end, a wholly electronic prepress operation, over 75 custom label presses including digital presses, a laser die cutter, and over 500 employees who, as custom label experts, are encyclopedic about pressure sensitive labels used in every industry.

“We’ve come a long way in terms of our technology and being on the forefront of pressure-sensitive label printing,” says Mike Gore, VP Operations. “We’ve held our name for now, but don’t let the ‘Discount’ fool you. We deliver the finest label craftsmanship, engineering and customer solutions in our industry – all with hallmark speed. And it’s because of the commitment and expertise of our employees that we’re successful. Many of our employees have been with us for decades, so we’re taking time to celebrate this wonderful milestone with all of them.”

Customer Appreciation promotions are planned for the entire year. Customers can follow Discount Labels on Facebook and Twitter to learn more.
