Ardie and Wilfredo Rabanal started LabelOne Connect (then Dana Labels) back in 1983 with one small press and a dream to print the highest quality labels possible. Wilfredo’s ability to not only fix but improve the presses and Ardie’s desire to please even the most demanding of clients has made us an industry-leading label printer.

Specializing in pressure-sensitive (adhesive-backed) labels on rolls, Ardie and Wilfredo’s constant innovations helped create an industry. Their inspiration allowed smaller packaged goods companies to add multiple colors, foil, embossing and intricate die cutting to their packaging at smaller quantities than were practical before.  It is for these reasons that LabelOne Connect has become a front runner in printing the highest-quality cosmetic, pharmaceutical and wine custom labels.

Through the years LabelOne Connect has grown by adding the latest UV waterless offset and digital presses and hiring the most talented people in the industry. The demand for high quality labels worldwide has seen their small company grow from the two of them to over thirty employees and running up to ten presses day and night.

In the last ten years, LabelOne Connect has developed a line of label applicators designed to withstand the rigors of any bottling line.  Our line of label applicators starts at a small table-top manual applicator and goes all the way to a semi-automatic model. Whatever the size of your business, our label applicators can meet your needs. We manufacture our labeling equipment in Portland, OR at our local facility. Each machine is hand crafted by our team of engineers with the finest and highest quality, industrial materials for years of faithful service.

In 2007 Ardie and Wilfredo’s daughter, Marnellie, joined the company bringing a fresh perspective to the label printer business and helping to lead the charge in innovation. As new technology arrives, LabelOne Connect remains committed to being the first to welcome it through our doors.

To see a sample of our labels, visit our portfolio pages on UV Waterless Offset and Digital Waterless Offset. Visit us on YouTube for videos of our label applicators in action. You can also keep up on the latest information about LabelOne Connect by visiting our blog.
