Flexographic printing is the most common method used to produce roll labels. This process utilizes a roll to roll process, which means the label material is on a roll and fed through the printing press and comes out on a roll.
This process allows for very fast printing with a very high level of quality.
These presses can print from one colour to eight colours or more. They can also add special effects, varnishes and lamination.
After printing the labels are fed through a machine which will die cut the label. The most common being a rectangular shape with rounded corners. This machine uses a die to cut the shape of the label but does not cut the liner therefore leaving the label on the roll. This machine also removes the excess material from the backing leaving just the printed label.
We deal with several very large manufacturers that are capable of producing short runs at a very affordable price as they have a large assortment of standard dies and specialize in this type of work. Other manufacturers are more geared to longer runs which is why we are able to provide excellent pricing no matter what the quantity of labels that you require.
Today labels are also produced using Digital Printing. See our page on 4 colour process labels for more information on this technology.
