Pre-printed and Partially Pre-printed Labels

We believe that having a high quality label for your product can be the difference between consumers seeing your product and walking by it unnoticed. Many of our customers require specially designed labels for a variety of needs. Some have a need for a designed label with no variable information on it, like their brand or specific product, while others need a label that has their brand information as well as a blank space that can be used to include additional information. Below are examples of both of those types of labels. For a small quantity of pre-printed labels (under 10,000) you can review our online small-run label catalog to search for label sizes and pricing.

Please contact us today to speak with one of our sales reps on how we can help you with your label needs.

 

partially pre-printedPartially Pre-Printed Labels

Partially pre-printed labels usually contain high quality graphics describing the product and its manufacturer, as well as a blank space on which to imprint information. A sandwich manufacturer may leave an area blank so that they can use the same label for all their production, while an apparel manufacturer would leave an area blank so that they can designate the length, waist and style of a particular garment.

These labels are produced on rolls and run through thermal transfer printers which store and print the variable information. Once the labels are printed they can either be rewound for later application to a product, automatically applied to a product on a conveyor belt with a print and apply system, or the printer can be set so that once a label is removed the next label is printed and is ready for application.

Fully pre-printed labels are typically ordered when there is a large quantity needed and the information on the label doesn’t change.  This is ideal for branding labels on products, such as food, beverages and other identifying labels (like size labels for clothes).  In many cases pre-printed labels are manually applied to products. However, large manufacturers can apply fully pre-printed labels with automatic label applicators at speeds up to 300 per-minute. For the apparel industry, stickers such as those indicating the size and the inspector, are applied by individual operators as they work with the garments.
