How is 4 color flexographic printing different from digital printing?

Flexographic printing requires the printer to set up “plates”. These plates allow labels to be replicated for less cost per unit. Digital printing is better for short run print jobs because there are no plates but the per unit cost is slightly higher so the benefit dimishes as the number of labels increase. Digital printing is also beneficial when you have multiple SKUs and you need a relatively small number of each SKU. In these types of cases, digital really saves you money. To find out which solution is right for your label needs, please give us a call. We will be happy to break down the costs and advise you on the correct type of printing for you.

What types of artwork are acceptable? Can I use my own logo for labels?

Of course! We can use most types of artwork. That’s said, for best results and for the least cost, it is STRONGLY recommended that you use artwork that was made on adobe Photoshop or AI. By using these tools and saving the artwork as a vector file, you can make it possible for us to get good results when you are printing your labels. We also recommend that you pay attention to the amount of small type in your labels. Too small of type can look blurry and illegible. If you have any further artwork questions, we are happy to assist you!

How many labels per roll should I get?

For machine labeling, each machine has a maximum roll diameter. When your label machine is set up this should be given to you. If you give us that measurement, we can take it from there. The number of labels per roll will depend on the size of each label. Most of the time this is 1000 per roll. Getting this correct is critical and will save you from needlessly stopping your production line to set up again. For hand labeling you can choose the amount you would like that best fits your labeling needs.
