Why should I use a Digital Labels printer instead of a regular label print shop?
Basically the answer will depend on whether you want to print your labels in multi colours and whether you want to print a small quantity or a large quantity.
If your requirement is for small quantities of multiple kinds and you want to manage your cash flow whilst at the same time get the best quality possible, then digital printing is the answer.
What are the costs to setup prior to printing?
Unlike flexographic and letterpress printing methods which require the use of special printing plate for each colour printed, (which can amount to several hundreds of dollars), digital printing does not use plates to print. The ink is laid down onto the label stock electronically.
Am I restricted to standard sized labels?
No, your label can be any size or shape so long as it is within an overall size of 400mm x 200mm. We do not print on pre-
What kinds of materials can I have my labels printed on?
The most popular material is Gloss or Matte paper which is suitable for most indoor applications. If you require Bumper Stickers or labels for use outdoors we recommend the use of Polypropylene or PET which are impervious to moisture and oil based products.
Can I use specific PMS colours?
Digital printing uses the CMYK method to produce millions of colours but this method does not always produce accurate PMS colours. Refer to the PMS Colour Bridge books to compare PMS colours when produced with CMYK technology. If you are using PMS spot colours, we must be told when an order is placed so that we can make the necessary alterations to the colour mix before we print so that we get the closest possible match.
Can I get a proof prior to printing?
The great advantage with digital printing is that we can produce just 1 copy of a label which can then be used as a proof. This allows you to check the label for accuracy and colour before committing to the print run. There is of course a small charge for this service.
What is the minimum number of labels that I can order?
Our minimum print quantity is 100 labels.
How long does it take before I get my labels?
Our normal turnaround time is approximately 5 -
Can you print Gold or Silver ink?
No, neither colours are available in the digital ink range. A simulated colour is printed instead.
Will my labels come on rolls or sheets?
All of our labels are produced on rolls with a standard 38mm or 76mm core which allows our customers to be able to use them on special labelling machinery as well as by hand. We do however have facility to supply them on sheets of 1 up to sheets of 100 up.
