The future and our “WHY”

Amherst Label has a “Painted Picture” of our plans for the future

Amherst Label has a “Vivid Vision,” or “Painted Picture” for the future. It is centered on our “WHY,” our reason for being, our purpose.

Our “WHY” is “We Help You.”

The acronym was coined the day our company president Nye Hornor expressed his hopes and dreams for the people of Amherst Label, and for customers who count on us to help build YOUR dreams.

More about this Painted Picture’s back story



Amherst Label’s Painted Picture 2021-24 focuses on setting and reaching goals, aligned shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers, suppliers and employees. All working together to reach goals.

By helping our customers reach their goals, we are on our way to reaching our company goals for our employees and their families.

To do this, we rely heavily on our suppliers. Because without stocks, inks, and all the other materials from which labels are built, we are stuck on the launchpad. It is common knowledge that the country’s supply chain has taken huge hits in the past year. Pulp and other critical raw materials are in short supply. Suppliers are closing their doors and truckers are leaving the field in record numbers.

The strength of Amherst Label’s relationships with our suppliers has helped us weather the challenges, protect our customer satisfaction rate and assure on-time deliveries.

Creatively finding ways to keep costs down is everything right now. More about creative cost-savings measures. Working closely with you, we are doing everything we can to hold the line on price increases.



If you have three minutes, we invite you to take a quick look at our “Painted Picture” movie, a whirlwind tour of our company and our hopes, narrated by Nye Hornor.

And thank you for making Amherst Label a part of your future plans.

Amherst Label’s practice of developing and working with Painted Pictures was inspired by a speaker named Cameron Herold at a TLMI event.
