“Service is our business,
Printing is our product”
A pressure sensitive label is a material which has an adhesive on the back. When pressure is applied it will adhere to most most surfaces.
Turnaround time is dependent on several factors:
Please contact us if you have a special need. We will accommodate you even with a partial shipment necessary.
You can request sample material to test on the surface(s) to be labeled, or to check the automatic labeling process. Temperature extremes, moisture and surface texture are all things that can affect label adhesion. If you are unsure of the materials, send us a sample of your product and we will test several materials and recommend the appropriate adhesive as well as proper face stock.
In the label industry- as in most of printing- the actual quantity of product delivered may vary + or - 10% from the quantity ordered because extras are produced to provide for what may need to be culled out in the quality review process. You are then billed for the actual quantity shipped.
Plates are used to transfer the ink to the surface to be printed. Each color requires a separate printing plate. Plates remain in files for future orders.
A die is used for cutting the shape of the label out of the material. The material is shipped to us in the large rolls. The ink, uv or laminate is added to the label material before it is die-cut. A die to the material is like a cookie cutter to dough. There is no charge to use one of our existing dies.
If you need special label shape that is unique to your product, we can have a die manufactured for that shape. The tooling charge is the cost for the die.
Barcodes are issued and controlled by the GS1 US (formerly the Uniform Product Code Council). You can contact them at (937) 435-3870 or http://www.gs1us.org and for a fee they will issue your company a set of number which can be used for your product barcode. We will then use this number to produce barcode artwork for your label.
