Same day or next day quotes depending on the complexity of your booklet label project. We run on urgency. You will get a fast response from our project managers either by phone, email or text. 

Budget Sensitive. If it is not affordable, then it’s no good. We’ll find a label construction that matches your budget. If you are switching from single ply labels to booklet labels, you’ll have to get used to a different price level for a different type of product.

We are well equipped to handle your business no matter what volume of labels you need. The trend today is shorter runs with lots of SKU’s. We are well equipped to handle this type of order complexity. We have no minimum runs. We can setup a specific tracking program that helps you manage all these SKUs. Here is a good example of one of our customer’s typical requirements- 45 different labels with volumes being 4,000 of this, 250 of that, and 5 of those. No problem. We have digital offerings to help defray costs.

Technology Driven. As you can tell, staying ahead is important to us. Investing in new technology is not only important but critical to offering the best solutions. We do a lot of R&D to stay current.

Teaching. We are proud of what we do and enjoy teaching others. We get a lot of calls from customers who have no idea what they want. We are more than happy to spend the time to talk about what construction makes sense including the nuances. In fact, we are happy to make mock-ups to further the learning and communication between our companies.

International Customer Base. We are skilled and experienced in handling international projects. Whether it is ordered overseas and produced in the USA or ordered domestically for shipping to foreign ports. No problem. Our travels do take us to Europe and beyond so let us know if you need to meet with us.

Financially Responsible. JH Bertrand is not run on debt so you can count on the fact that we are going to be around for a while. Our customers appreciate this fact.


  • We don’t do reverse auctions, major bid packages or any other form of supplier devaluing exercises. Don’t misunderstand. We absolutely don’t mind doing normal estimating and being competitive. We just aren’t interested in those “opportunities” where it’s based on an auctioned price with no value for service. Our value is based on high level service. There are many good manufacturers out there. Service, however, is the hardest part to get right. This is where we excel!
  • Our prices are competitive, but not rock bottom. High level service comes at a price because you need high quality people, equipment and processes to do it right. Don’t expect to get dirt cheap prices from us. We don’t subscribe to the “make it up on volume” philosophy. But, do expect to have a company do everything it can do to match your budget.
