Stickers & labels on a roll vs on a sheet
There are some very good reasons why we supply printed labels on a roll and recommend them as an ideal choice for most of our customers. Firstly, they’re cheaper. Our Indigo print presses provide a continuous roll where no sheets have to be cut out and packed, so there are speed and cost savings we can pass on to our customers. It’s one of the reasons why we offer some of the UK’s best prices and turnaround times of only 2-3 working days.
Secondly, with no restrictive sheet dimensions, we can offer more versatile shapes and sizes whilst making maximum use of the available material, which provides yet more cost savings for lower prices.
They’re also good for our customers, too. Sticky labels on a roll are more durable when handled and easier to use. This is especially the case if you order large quantities, where thousands of individual pages can be very cumbersome versus potentially just one personalised roll.
Roll labels suitable for applicators
While many of our customers choose rolls for hand application of labels, it's mechanical application where our customers find them essential. There are a lot of factors at play, such as leading edges, single lanes, label gaps, quantity per roll and max roll diameters, all of which must be set up for your specific application equipment.
You can detail any requirements in this regard while ordering, and we'll make sure they're set up exactly how you need it.
We always try to go one step further too, with quality materials and more precise die/laser depth cutting to avoid issues with the substrate that can cause web breaks during your production runs.
What else are they suitable for?
With polypropylene or paper material, FDA-approved toner and any shape or size, your labels can have all of the attributes required, whether they need to be waterproof, weatherproof, UV resistant, tear-resistant or food-safe.
This makes them ideal for edible products, non-edible products, toys, equipment, appliances, packaging, boxes, bottles, containers and virtually any other purpose.
