As well as supplying labelling equipment, we specialise in traditional and digital label printing; printing any sort of label between runs of 1,000 into the millions. Whatever your requirements, we have the capacity to deliver what you need.
Digital Label Printing wins hands-down on short runs
We have digital label printing and finishing equipment suited to printing full-colour labels of any kind. Whether it is sandwich labels, food labels, vape labels or chemical labels; our digital press can manufacture full-colour labels on demand.
Digital printing technology means we do not use traditional printing plates. Without the need for printing plates, lead time is reduced as well as cost. Your labels can be on the press within hours of you confirming your order.
Our digital equipment also has a digital laser die cutting station. Unlike traditional methods, lasers cut out the shape of your label from the feed-stock. This means we can cut complex label shapes without the need for physical cutters. You benefit from no restrictions on shape or size, nor the physical constraints of geared cylinders. It also means no costs or lead time for tooling before we can start making your order.
If you need less than 20,000 labels, digital printing may be the perfect solution for you. For larger volume print runs, traditional flexographic printing is usually more cost effective.
Traditional Flexographic Label Printing for large runs
We have invested £330,000 this year in an Etirama 350 6 colour printing press. This brand new press incorporates cutting edge technology to deliver the most outstanding print quality on longer label runs. Using CMYK printing, we can make any colour you like along with 2 spot colours on the press. The printer is 350mm wide and can run at over 100m per minute, keeping registration with sophisticated electronics and controls. We can churn out large runs in no time!
Traditional printing methods use flexographic plates wrapped around printing cylinders. These are fantastic for printing high volumes of labels as the press can run at high speed. Whilst the plates and cutters are restricted in ways that digital printing is not, the cost benefit in terms of time, means large label runs can be done at a fraction of the unit price of digitally printed labels.
