Labels made from recycled polyester or organic cotton
By using polyester made from recycled components, the general raw material cycle can be extended. By reusing the raw materials, a negative environmental balance is automatically counteracted. There are no restrictions with regard to format and tape layout. There is no loss of quality, grip or care properties compared to labels made of unrecycled polyester. The use of certified recycled tape material is subject to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and is certified in Appendix 4. There are no restrictions with regard to format or ribbon design.
We care about nature and the environment. Print labels made of organic cotton are not only sustainable for us, but also for our customers. For example, the printing ribbons are made from certified materials from controlled organic cultivation. There are no disadvantageous characteristics compared to print labels made of conventional cotton.
Woven labels made of recycled polyester
Woven labels made of recycled polyester do not lose any of their quality, feel or care properties compared to labels made of non-recycled polyester. The use of certified recycled warp and weft material (black and white) is optically an outstanding quality impression and motive resolution. Special colours made of recycled PES from 10,000 pieces are also possible. They are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Annex 4 certified. There are no restrictions with regard to format or tape layout. There is also no need to use chemicals for a more soft label finish.
Woven labels as mixed fabric or 100% cotton
For our customers we also offer the possibility of a high-quality cotton fabric with a fine feel and look. FSE is a specialist for any kind of woven labels made of cotton. There are material mixtures of cotton and polyester, but also qualities made of 100% cotton (depending on the quantity purchased). The particular know-how lies in the specialisation of the weaving technique and the procurement of particularly fine cotton yarns. A natural label also stands for the sustainable well-being of the environment. Therefore we also offer labels made of organic cotton.

The ecological lawnmowers from FSE Franz Schäfer Etiketten
At FSE, seven hard-working sheep help to keep the grass short on the meadows of the farm. In this way we promote the natural preservation of our natural landscape.
Waste Heat Utilisation
FSE uses waste heat from compressors to heat the administration, production, logistics and warehouse buildings.
Green Roof System
FSE Franz Schäfer Etiketten has a green roof on the 1,000 m² warehouse building.
Sealed areas on the company's premises have been reduced by the use of lawn grid stones, for example, for parking areas. Also the planting shrubs and trees on the company premises as a habitat for insects and small animals ensures the well-being of all living creatures. The cosiness of our outdoor facilities is always popular and used for breaks when the weather is fine.
At FSE, waste separation is at the forefront of sustainability. It not only ensures that we and the waste system are kept in order, it also makes a sustainable contribution to recycling.
Greenery for employees
Not only our outdoor facilities resemble a small oasis. There is also plant support in the work rooms and offices. It not only provides a pleasant feel-good factor but also promotes air purification.
