What you need for label printing
Product manufacturers are required to use labeling tools for merchandise and shipping packaging. When choosing a labeling medium, the question arises: what do you need for label printing? The first and most important thing is to determine the quality and material of the label itself, its size. Then, depending on the conditions of use and storage of the goods, determine the type of adhesive layer and the type of printing on the surface. All these characteristics are taken into account at the initial stage of planning and drawing up the layout for the label.
If the manufacturer of the products prints a large number of labels with variable information, it makes sense to order labels with a preprint. These labeling tools are produced in large quantities with a template image designed for further imprinting of the desired information.
The type of product influences the choice of the label. Various natural and synthetic materials, special finishing, protective coatings are used for their production. They come in cuts or rolls.
What is needed for printing labels
The main area of application – food products, retail stores, food production. When choosing labelling means for products to be stored in unfavorable conditions and with big temperature differences paper labels with TOP coating and reinforced adhesive layer are used. Paper labels are also used for beverages, alcoholic products, canned goods, frozen food products.
For food labels, in addition to paper, materials such as film, polypropylene are used. They are applied to plastic or glass packaging, can be full color.
Industrial labels for complex non-food products are usually made of stable synthetic materials: polypropylene, polyamide, polyester, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene. Types of printing for drawing – thermal transfer, flexographic, offset. Labels are suitable for labeling of chemical products, automotive chemicals, medicines, fertilizers.
Products or products that will be used in aggressive environments require an additional enhancement of label resistance and an extension of their service life. We offer the following models for this purpose: Mondo-Bondo, labels of our own design . These models of labeling use reinforced adhesive layer, very strong and resistant to damage materials, thermal transfer printing with resin ribbons.
Beautiful multi-color labels require the use of different types of printing. Ordering a large print run implies the use of special machines for flexo printing, silkscreen printing, with possible foil finishing or lamination. These types of printing can be done only in printing conditions on special equipment with professional training and maintenance. Therefore, the production of bright colorful labels is usually ordered in companies for the production of means of labeling.
