Positive ID Labels was established in 1997 by Managing Director John Mayers with the aim of providing bespoke printed labelling solutions to exceed customer expectations. Since then Positive ID Labels has increased turnover and staff and now expanded to take up new premises on the Castle Lane Industrial Estate in Melbourne, South Derbyshire.
We manufacture reel to reel labels for industry and are happy to supply label quantities from a few thousands to many millions. We can produce plain labels efficiently on our wide format plain label converters as well as fully customised printed labels in any shape, size or quantity.
We have recently invested in new Jetrion 4900 digital printing press and laser cutting finishing equipment worth over £330,000. This means we can offer full colour digitally printed labels to our customers. The digital printing press means there is no need for printing plates as the ink is applied to the labels using bubble jet technology. The machine also boasts a laser die cutting station. This means we can cut your labels to any shape or size without the need for cutter tooling. This means the time from approval to press is cut from an average of three days (waiting for plates and cutters) to zero!
We also operate a number of flexographic printing presses requiring plates and cutters. We recently bought Limbus Labels and this included the acquisition of a state-of-the-art MPS 350 8 colour UV ink printing press. We have started the process of upgrading this fantastic equipment even further with the addition of turnbar equipment to allow for double-sided printing.
One of the cores activities of our business is price and label gun labels – we have 5 narrow web Mark Andy printers for price gun label production. 2 of these machines included ‘turret’ re-winders meaning price gun labels are printed and finished in one manufacturing sequence, saving time, improving efficiency and lowering costs.
We supply thermal label printers suitable for print on demand applications such as sandwich labels, barcoding or warehouse tracking. We also supply hand-held labelling guns for use as pricing guns or date coding, batch production coding or a myriad of other applications.
With combined staff experience within the labelling industry exceeding 100 years, there is very little that we have not seen or solved when it comes to labelling and label solutions!
