Global Resources. Local Service.
With the support of our parent company, LINTEC, we aim to deliver unmatched technology, capability, service, and value to our customers. Through strategic market growth and operational expansion, the newest additions to the Mactac family include Duramark Products (formally Ritrama USA), CSI SoCal Distribution Center, Spinnaker Coating, and Label Supply. Our integrated North American manufacturing and distribution footprint is 40% larger than it was just a few years ago. Our state-of-the-art assets allow us to provide enhanced opportunities in film at our world-class automated facility in Spartanburg, specialty labeling and custom product development at our Minneapolis facility, and overall manufacturing consistency, efficiency, and capacity redundancy. Now, more than ever, we have the technologies, tools, and resources to help you solve your problems and grow your business — yet we remain true to our core values and our commitment to provide you with above and beyond-personalized service and support. We will always be the Mactac you know, trust, and count on.
Our core business is our Roll Label business. It’s where our roots were first planted, and it’s the largest of all Mactac divisions. Since our inception, we’ve specialized in the manufacture of PSA-coated papers and films in roll-to-roll form. Our products feature various weights and thicknesses, textures, colors, opacity levels, and conformability/rigidity ranges. They are used in endless industries and applications, including durable goods labeling, product identification, barcoding and instruction labeling, security and safety labeling, health and beauty products, food and beverage labeling, and more. We partner with label converters and printers, and we supply products for some of the biggest brands in the world.

Tried and True
On one hand, our ability to produce high volumes of consistent, quality core products ensure you — and your customers — have what you need when you need it. Our paper-on-paper hot-melt solutions are among the most trusted and reputable in the industry.

Highly unique jobs require highly specialized, high-touch service. We do that too — and we do it better than anyone else.

We bring in all of our key players — experts with decades of experience in this business — and we listen closely, make recommendations and serve as an incredible resource. We are proficient and responsive, and we dig deep into every specialty application challenge, offering education, expertise, and support until we determine the best solution.

For years, Mactac has been a leader in PSA materials development for digital printing, mounting, laminating, screen printing, and cut vinyl. Our graphics business is built on innovation. In the 1970s, we pioneered the overlaminate and mounting films industry, inventing the cold-mounting technology that sparked large-format image protection development. Today, our innovative products are used to transform windows, walls, floors, and vehicles. Created with superior quality and lasting durability, they are ideal for indoor and outdoor signage, fleet and vehicle wraps, tradeshow displays, retail signage, environmental graphics, and more. We have a solution for any graphics application challenge. Whether you’re a big commercial printer, small mom-and-pop print shop, distributor, exhibit house, photo lab, or installer, we will be your valued partner. We care about you and your success, and we want to help you grow your business.
In 2022, we welcomed Spinnaker to the Mactac family. Together, our product offerings, capabilities, and service platform are best-in-class. From large sheets and high quantities to custom sheets and small orders, we can meet any need. Spinnaker/Mactac is a household name in the pressure-sensitive sheets business. In 1982, our pressure-sensitive sheet stock was the first of its kind — allowing printers to run PSA sheets through print technology as quickly and cleanly as fine paper. Today, our industry-leading paper and film stocks are designed for digital and offset printing and deliver a multitude of benefits to both printers and converters. Products demonstrate outstanding lay-flat characteristics, superior stability and printability, exceptional internal strength, non-oozy adhesives, ease of cutting, and more. With permanent and removable options, they are used in applications such as promotional media, point-of-purchase displays, package/product identification, and variable information printing on address, routing and shipping labels. Premium and value product lines, as well as private label offerings, are available to sheet-fed commercial printers through a comprehensive network of fine paper merchants. Our goal is to support merchants with a wide range of label products that will meet their needs and those of their customers.
