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

Colour Label Printer Extras


You’ve printed your labels and they look great, but you now want to automatically apply them, Without a full print and apply system this can be a little tedious. A rewinder can be attached to the printer and have your labels back on a roll and ready for a machine application to your bottles. Relatively inexpensive and saves lots of time, and keeps the labels neater so minimising the potential for damaging them after the print job is done.
