Whilst a variety of label printing methods exist, digital is by far the best method for ensuring high quality print on short to medium length production runs without any of the high setup costs. Unlike flexographic printing, digital print does not require any printing plates, and instead uses fine jets of ink to create text and images.
Utilising digital print for your labels means that you can create multiple design variants over short production runs without having any impact on the per unit cost. You can trial and introduce new products to the market or run limited edition promotions without any setups costs.
Sarcina Packaging can digitally print onto a huge variety of different label substrates, including a range of paper based products with contrasting matt, gloss and satin finishes. For especially premium labels, it is also possible to print onto uncoated or textured Fedrigoni and Colorplan stocks, amongst others.
For labels that need to be more durable, resilient and resistant to damage, or contained in harsher environments Sarcina Packaging can also offer a range of polypropylene labels in gloss or matt finishes. Using polypropylene ensures that you labels will be resistant to water permeation, and will stand up well to abrasion and continued use.
To ensure that your labels stay firmly adhered to your products, Sarcina Packaging can help you to choose from a variety of adhesive types, including strong freezer-grade and permanent adhesives. Alternatively, low-tac and non-permanent adhesives can be provided to ensure that no residue is left on your products when the customer removes the label.
Digital labels can be finished with a diverse range of methods. Your labels can be varnished with matt or gloss inline varnishes or they could be laminated with specialist PP laminates including premium soft-touch or anti-scuff laminates, as well as matt and gloss. It is also possible to foil your labels with the hundreds of different metallic foil options available from Foilco, or another foil brand of your choice.
The options are virtually limitless with digitally printed labels. Call Sarcina Packaging today to discuss how we can help you with your digital label requirement.
