Flexographic vs Digital printing

Flexographic vs digital blog imageThere are so many choices to make when you are having labels printed, one of these choices will be choosing between flexographic and digital printing.  We’ve listed a few benefits of both processes below to help you figure out exactly what is it you want!

Flexographic printing

Enhanced durability – if your product has a long shelf life or is for outdoor use, flexographic would be the decision for you.

Low cost – If you are having a large amount of labels printed the end sum will come out a fair bit lower than it would if printed digitally.

Precision of colour – You will achieve exact matches of colour with the use of the Pantone Colour System.

Digital printing

Low cost – If you are having a small amount of labels printed the digital process will be cheaper.

You can tweak your design easily.

Faster turnaround than flexographic as the process does not require printing plates and therefore reduces set-up time.

 

If you are still unsure as to whether digital or flexographic printing is the way to go, contact our sales team for advice on 0845 222 0354.

5 points to consider when designing your printed labels

Products with labels

When a product is created, the first thought is of course what is going into this bottle/jar/carton, the flavour, the appeal and of course the difference between your product and an existing product on the market.  Sometimes your product label can become an afterthought, so we’ve listed a few considerations to take into account when designing your label and why you should be bumping this task higher up your list of priorities!

  1. Customers can’t see the taste or the contents of your product until they have picked it up, therefore your label should be eye-catching and memorable to help entice your customer – no customer, no sale!
  2. Don’t over complicate your label design, simple and bold can help you stand strong amongst competition.
  3. Conduct some basic market research, check out your competition, what colours are they using?  Which one stands out the most and why?
  4. Communicate with other departments in your company effectively, include marketing and sales teams in decisions – after all they have the most customer contact and market knowledge.
  5. Make sure your product comes across clearly in your label design, if your product label doesn’t instantly spell out what is inside  the chances are your potential customers won’t hang around to find out.

Here at Etiquette we understand that your label is the face of your product, that is why we pride ourselves on offering a high-quality printing service to help you achieve an end product to be proud of.  To obtain a quote for your printed labels or for more information about our printing service contact our sales team direct on 0845 222 0354 or visit the printed labels section of our website.

The PandA Cube – the new series of print and apply labelling systems

The PandA Cube

As the UK’s independent experts in labels and labelling, Etiquette prides itself on providing the reliable and cost-effective solutions that allow our customers to meet the demands of the ever-changing world of packaging. When it comes down to machinery there are three words on most purchasers lips – quality, price and reliability.

The PandA Cube control panel

In response to both the financial difficulties and the general demands from our customers, Etiquette has introduced PandA series of Print and Apply Labelling Systems, the latest of the series being the PandA Cube.

Historically, customers have needed to invest in a dedicated machine for label application in each position, such as Front of Pack, Top of Pack, Side of Pack etc.  However the new PandA Cube is a fully integrated system and with changing parts (applicator modules), the system can be customised and configured to apply labels in the most conventional, industry-standard positions. This delivers unrivalled adaptability to those companies who require the printing and application of labels to products where label position is subject to change, enabling these companies to future-proof their production lines without large initial setup costs.  The PandA Cube has been designed and constructed to make it suitable to operate in the harshest working conditions where ingress from airbone particulate needs to be minimised in order to protect the electromechanical sub-assemblies and components of the printer applicator, this helps further increase the flexibility of the machine.  For example, the print engine and label roll unwind unit are encased in an environmental enclosure with a polycarbonate door.  The PandA CubeProtecting the inner workings of the machine in such a way is of great benefit to the customer as print engine wear and printhead damage are drastically reduced, resulting in minimal applicator downtime and an increase in productivity.

Reliable operation and print accuracy are of paramount importance in today’s packaging applications, this is due to the demands placed on suppliers by major retailers and supermarkets where stringent quality control and precise scanning of barcodes on outer-case labels leaves no margin for error.  In fact, scan errors due to poorly printed or unreadable barcodes often result in a complete rejection of delivery, leaving suppliers with pallet loads of unwanted products and a damaged reputation.  The protective construction of the PandA Cube ensures that this problem is eradicated as the print engine will perform with additional reliability and accuracy than other machines presently available on the market and is engineered to effortlessly integrate into any production environment. Etiquette Sales and Marketing Director Tom Bunce said:

“We have introduced the PandA Cube as the most versatile Industrial Print and Apply labelling solution available, for such a modest capital outlay.  Flexibility in 21st century production environments is paramount to staying ahead in today’s competitive world, but even so, interest in this machine has been beyond our expectations.”
