Why print colour labels in house?
- Reduce Cost – Short runs of printed labels from any label manufacturer can be prohibitively expensive due to the set up cost and overhead recovery on industrial digital presses typically costing £500,000 upwards.
- No minimum order quantities – print the exact number of labels on demand
- Speed – No lead times. Print the labels you want when you need them
- Inventory – No need to hold labels in stock which may need to be scrapped due to regulation or ingredient changes
- Date (BBE) and Batch coding – print all of the variable information when you print the product label – one pass, save time and cost
For a fast moving business needing high-quality labels in a hurry the new inkjet colour label printers offer a realistic solution.
