Other Types of Labels
STATIC CLING LABELS
Static Cling Labels are made from a thin vinyl film that clings to various surfaces. Typically, they are displayed on glass windows and doors. However, they can also be displayed on smooth plastic or metal.
Thermal Direct Labels
No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed material.
Soft Touch Thermal Laminating Film (referred to as velvety sense film)
Soft Touch Thermal Laminating Film is seen as luxury packaging material for cosmetic. This is the first film with tactile properties in history and presents a pleasant and intense velvety effect very similar to the peach skin. An exceptional product among plastic films in search of a touch distinction. Soft Touch Thermal Laminating Film is printable, glue-able and stamp-able. Widely used in the custom packing industry as well as for high-end book covers, packing prototypes, corporate brochures, product branding as well as a variety of other quality graphic solutions. It is also applied to digitally printed media.
Thermal Transfer Labels
Thermal transfer printing uses a heated ribbon to produce durable, long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials.
Block Out Labels
Block Out labels are stickers that are specifically designed with this purpose in mind. Unlike a normal label that features clear glue, the adhesive on a block out or opaque label is either black or dark blue in color. When the label is applied over the details you are covering up, it prohibits the underlying information from showing through.
Digital Print Labels
Digital printing doesn't use plates the way Flexo does, but instead uses options such as toner larger printers that do use liquid ink. Digital printing shines when lower quantities are needed; think of a run of 100 Labels vs. 10,000 labels. Another benefit of digital printing is variable data and die-cutting capability. When each piece needs a unique code, name or address, digital is the only way to go. Flexo printing cannot accommodate this need.
Permanent adhesive is the most common and least expensive and can only be removed by solvents as they are, obviously, made to be non-removable. Removing a permanent label usually results in the label being destroyed. Permanent adhesive is suitable for non-polar surfaces, films, and corrugated board, but not recommended for labelling highly curved surfaces.
Semi-permanent labels behave like a removable label at first. You can place it where you need it, and you can move it about at will. After a few days, however, the semi-permanent label changes its composition. It begins to set hard and permanently affix itself to the object. It then becomes the equivalent of a permanent label, completely locked into place. This is why semi-permanent adhesives are also called repositionable adhesives.
Labels using peelable/removable adhesives hold fast and do not easily fall off, however these labels can be removed from the surface on which it was placed. Upon removal, the label is not destroyed and the adhesive stays with the label, not the surface. This label can adhere again on another surface. An ultra-peelable label is popularly used on book jackets and glass, where no residue is acceptable. These labels can only be used once before the adhesive is gone.
UL and UV Laminates Provide Optimal Durability. They can be Glossy as well as Matt/ Satin Experts in the manufacturing of laminated labels for a broad range of uses. -Laminated labels provide the ultimate in durability and longevity when high moisture, friction, solvent and weathering exposure is a concern.
Consecutively Numbered Labels
Consecutive number labels are perfect for keeping track of equipment, inventory, or other items to make your operations run smoother. Our consecutive number labels (also called serial number labels) are printed on digital presses.
MIRROR IMAGE LABELS
Mirror Image printing is most commonly used with transparent labels. The labels are applied to the inside of a window or applied to glass surfaces. The print is to be read from the outside.
Mirror printing can be achieved by reversing the text, images, or objects in a template before printing, or it can be achieved by creating a template normally (without reversing) and by using a technique referred to in the industry as: “Print Mirror Imaging”.
Often used as inventory labeling solutions, durable magnetic labels serve as rack labels that easily can be relocated on demand. Rather than going through the hassle of removing permanently affixed labels or dealing with bleed-through from old labels that interfere with scanning accuracy. Magnetic labels may be relocated from time to time without any sticky residue left behind.
Fuse your label information to the back of a magnetic label and use them for advertising on a side of a car, to identify the products on warehouse shelves, and any situation that you may be arranging and rearranging your products and inventory supply. Magnetic Labels are a good alternative to paper labels which peel off over time and leave a sticky residue when labels are changed.
COLD FOIL LABELS
Cold foil labels are used to apply a lustrous shimmer to delicate or heat-sensitive label materials. Cold Foil Labels are made with an on-press application that transfers a thin sheet of foil onto label material using cold printing plates and a UV curing lamp. They give a metallic look to your product and can be used on plastic beverage bottles, and house hold goods.
