When you publish an exquisite book in a limited quantity and need to communicate just how special it is, a removable label does the trick.

In its 38-year history of printing innovations, Amherst Label has created hundreds of removable and repositionable labels. With high-quality flexographic printing and precision die-cutting, excellent results are achieved for an unlimited number of applications. This story is about a very small number of labels which will be carefully applied by hand to a special limited-edition book about the storied Keene Pumpkin Festival, which moved to Laconia in 2015.
