MENTOR, Ohio - October 23, 2023 - Avery Dennison® Graphics Solutions and its DIY craft market partner Siser® North America today announced the retail launch of EasyPSV® Starling™ by Avery Dennison at Michaels stores nationwide. The new pressure-sensitive vinyl film product was created exclusively for the craft consumer market.
Siser by Avery Dennison EasyPSV® Starling™ is a high-quality, flexible, pressure-sensitive adhesive vinyl film collection designed for a wide range of indoor and outdoor uses. The material offers excellent cutting and industry-leading easy weeding* and can be used in all kinds of applications, including glass and mirror, metal, ceramic and cups. The products are ideal for crafters working with plotter cutters. The film vinyl facestock, adhesive layer and liner cut cleanly, leaving no sticky adhesive residue on plotter cutter blades, and designs are easily removed from the liner without tearing, even with very intricate creations.
The EasyPSV® Starling™ color craft vinyl product line consists of 57 solid colors. The EasyPSV® Glitters product line consists of 17 sparkle colors. Some of the fun colors include Ketchup Red and Mustard Yellow, Nautical Blue and Totally Teal, and Pink Flirt Glitter and Emerald Envy Glitter. The product is available in a variety of opaque, solid colors in a matte finish plus several colors in gloss. The color palette is consistent with select Siser EasyWeed® colors.
“We developed the EasyPSV Starling™ product with research-based input from crafters to ensure a ‘crafter-first’ strategic approach,” said Avery Dennison Graphics division Sr. Business Director/GM Abby Monnot.
