This label was primarily used for re-pressings of older albums. They kept the same catalogue number and were placed in the older 'SF' sleeves. In 1980, RCA released a huge selection of Elvis albums on their new 'international' label to replace ones that had since been deleted.  Original "International" releases of these LP's were pressed using a light green international label, housed in a proper 'International' sleeve. RCA used this opportunity to offload these older 'SF' album sleeves by changing the cover from the 'SF' catalogue to the international one by placing an INTS sticker over the older catalogue number.
