Our Process

  • Printer Model

    This is where the conversation starts as it helps to narrow down several facets of the label selection process instantly.

  • Resistance needs

    What are the common external contributors that a label will have to endure. Examples include different chemicals, scratch and smudge resistance, etc.

  • Environment Setting

    It is important to determine the setting that the labels will be living in, for example; indoors versus outdoors, temperature, direct light versus dark setting, etc.

  • Surface Needs

    What surface is the label going to be residing on – metal, plastic, rough, curved, etc.

  • Size

    When it comes to the size of the labels, it seems like this might be obvious, but it is more complicated than most imagine. For example, most labels come with options like with or without perforations, slits, fanfold or rolled. All these details are important to know for the ultimate functionality and efficiency of the printer being used.
