Delivery Labels can be made for any purpose, whether postal labels (PPI labels), address labels, courier labels, odette labels, instruction labels or handling labels. Our printing capability means you can have delivery labels of any sort in virtually any size or shape to suit your requirements.
Alternatively, you can fill in the form at the bottom of this email and we will contact you by return.
Full-colour delivery labels or plain labels can be made quickly and efficiently on our range of printing presses. We can use a range of materials and adhesives to ensure your delivery labels really deliver!
Delivery and courier labels are normally just plain labels prepared on plain direct-thermal paper material known as “DT Eco” or for a superior finish, Semi-Top Coated Direct Thermal Paper. We manufacture these sort of labels using one of three plain label converting machines. We operate a high capacity Daco-350 for high volumes. This machine, along with the two smaller Daco-250 machines, have a so-called turret system.
The ‘turret’ winds the labels to the specification required and rotates through 120 degrees. The finished labels are removed and new cores are loaded onto the mandrill. This mandrill rotates again to take on the next run of labels.
The Daco plain label converters all use rotary cutting to prepare the labels from the feedstock. The waste matrix is removed at the same time as the cut. This means the machines can run at very high speeds; over 100m per minute. The rolls of plain labels are then boxed or palletised for delivery.
We have over 1000 cutters in our cutter library. Most delivery labels and courier labels come in standard sizes such as 102mm x 102mm (4″ x 4″). For desktop printers, these are supplied on 25mm (1″) or 38mm (11/2“) cores. Another common size is 102mm x 152mm (4″ x 6″). Both 4″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ labels can be supplied with or without a perforation between the labels. Such delivery labels are ideally suited to common courier label printers such as the Zebra GK420D, used by most couriers.
Courier labels need to fit the printer on your desktop. Most desktop thermal printers have a 5” (127mm) maximum outside diameter so we supply labels to fit that. The number of labels on a roll varies by label size.
