Label Printing Technologies
Flexographic technology – Flexographic ink printing is advantageous due to the sharpness of its print and its capacity for color modification. Ink printing plates are capable of making precise prints of small text and finely detailed artwork. Also, flexographic printing enables color matching, custom coloring, and color shading. Water- and UV-based inks are available, with both process colors and a vast library of PANTONE spot colors. On-press configurations can range from up to eight spot colors or four-color process and up to four additional spot colors. Additionally, our flexography segment is capable of printing on both sides of a substrate.A variety of finishing options are also available, including flex embossing, cold foiling, fan folding, as well as outputting the finished product as rolls or in sheets. Also, HD flexographic technology is now available offering up to 4000dpi print quality.
Digital Technology – Digital label printing offers multiple advantages, including economical short run printing that eliminates the need to purchase printing plates and tooling. Digital label printing also offers unique capabilities including personalization, consecutive numbering, barcoding, 2D bar coding, or mass serialization. Also, a wide variety of materials, adhesives, coatings, and laminates are available. Digital printing eliminates the need for plates and our cutting system provides a tool-free method for cutting any desired shape.
Digital labels can be produced in small quantities at affordable prices.
Screen Print Technology – We feature PANTONE color-matching and can print on substrates between 0.002″ and 0.5″ in thickness. Some of the available substrates include plastic, Plexiglas, and paper. Additionally, Lexan is available for such uses as graphic overlays (also known as overlay panels). Lexan is often used on machinery, where instructions are often printed on the machine’s operation.
Die-cutting is available, including thermal die-cutting, along with a number of other finishing options. Some of the options include hot and cold embossing, cold pressure-sensitive adhesives, and lamination. Additionally, we can apply adhesives in zones, which can be useful for windowed jobs as well as cost savings.
Screen printing is an excellent choice for long-lasting signs and other outdoor materials.
Unlimited colors, wide variety of materials, fade and abrasion resistance for your durable and outdoor labels, decals and signage applications.
