Printing technology

We use a combination of classical and cutting-edge technologies to manufacture self-adhesive labels. In consultations concerning your order, we discuss individual technologies and recommend the most advantageous approach.

Self-adhesive labels and their production

Flexo printing

Flexo printing is a modern printing technology which makes use of soft photopolymer plates. It uses either water-soluble colors (as well as heat sensitive) or colours hardened using UV light.

Thermal transfer printing

Thermal transfer is a low-cost printing process on a pre-cut strip of labels, in which the label is coloured using a special colouring ribbon. The printers are connected to a PC, thus enabling the printing of changing data (number series, etc.).

Screen printing

Screen printing enables a large amount of colour to be transferred and therefore achieves excellent coverage and high resistance to sun bleaching. It is especially suitable for underprinting motives on transparent labels glued to a dark background or for raised printing.

Metal stamping

Metal stamping is a technology which uses a special foil to transfer the motive to the label. This foil may be of any colour. Especially used are imitation gold and silver or metallic colours.

Glue elimination + track turner

Glue is eliminated by separating the material printed from the bearing layer and, in places where the label is not to be glued, the label is overprinted with colour, most often using a transparent lacquer. Both layers of material are then joined once again. Elimination also allows the printing of simple motives and copy on the underside of the label (suitable, among other things, for labels on cosmetic products where the contents of the product can be printed "in the glue"). It is used in the food products industry, as well, where it limits mould at the point of meeting between glue and the surface of processed meats. It is further possible, using a track turner, to print on the bearing layer of material (silicon base).

Lamination

Lamination is a surface treatment of the label using a layer of self-adhesive foil. Laminated labels are very resistant to the effects of water, chemicals, cosmetic preparations, other aggressive materials and rubbing. Depending upon the type of laminated foil used, it is possible to achieve a label with high gloss, a satin surface, and resistance to tearing.
