    Variable Data Labels

    range of asset labels, asset security labels and barcode labelsWe can produce variable data labels exclusively using our digital printing press or in combination with our flexographic printing technology. For small volumes, we can manufacture using thermal printing technology and ribbons to ensure your variable data or sequentially numbered labels meet specification.

    Flexographic printing uses printing plates and these are not variable. For high volumes of labels, flexographic printing is suitable. For variation in each label, digital or thermal printing (a form of digital printing) is more suitable.

    Variable data labels can include barcodes in any of the symbologies noted below. Call us on 01332 864895 or fill in the form at the bottom of this page to take your order further or just to discuss your needs.
