Please refer to terms to the right for label information.
Acrylic-Based &Rubber based Adhesives Pressure-sensitive adhesive based on acrylic polymers; water based system, broad temperature ranges available.
Also, Rubber based adhesives for specialty applications.
Artwork Digital files of line drawings, photographs, illustrations provided by the customer to be used for the label design
Backing Paper Also know as 'liner', this material functions as a 'carrier' for the label
Printed labels, overlaminated and diecut
Basis Weight Designed as a reference for paper weight, based on the weight (in pounds) of 500 sheets of a particular material
Caliper Thickness of any portion of the label, liner or combination of both measured in thousandths of an inch and or milimeters.
Coat Weight The weight of the adhesive over a specified material area. The higher the coat weight, the thicker the amount of adhesive.
Inline flexo printing press
Die Cut The physical label when it is severed from the material and the waste, know as 'matrix' is removed. This is performed by running the label material under a steel rule die.
Face Stock (Stock) The top material used for the printed and conversion into a label.
Flexographic Printing A web based printing process utilizing low cost polymer printing plates, environmentally safe inks, that produces labels, tags and sheeted products in one production pass resulting in low cost quality products.
Artwork is prepared for plating
Hot Melt Adhesive A rubber based adhesive system used when applications require high initial tack. Sometimes a more cost effective adhesive system especially when a thicker coat weight is required.
Laser Label Label stock designed for use in laser printers
Over Laminate A clear thin gauge film which is applied to the printed (or unprinted) face stock (stock) to protect the printed image from scratches and other damage.
Thermal printer for thermal direct or thermal transfer labels
Pressure Sensitive Adhesives An adhesive system, including hot melt or acrylic technologies that require a certain amount of force or pressure to activate it's adherence to the designated substrate.
Thermal Direct Labels A heat sensitive coating on a label face stock (Stock) where the image is created on the label when used with a thermal printing equipment.
Thermal Transfer Labels Label facestock (stock) capable of accepting images through a heat transfer of ink from a ribbon utilizing a thermal printer.
Printing plates mounted on print cylinder
Tooling Any physical items needed to produce the pressure sensitive label; cutting dies to cut label to size, a printing plate required for each color to print the image(s) and cylinders the printing plates are attached.
