Tips

See Tips 2 section for more details.
 
  • When specifying a label width, stating the width of the carrier or liner helps to clarify label dimensions.
    • Orientation of printing is not a factor when quoting or printing a label. 
    • Direct thermal material can be identified by applying heat to the backside – it will turn black if it is direct thermal.
  • Adhesive specifications always reference 2 temperatures –
  • Application Temperature – the minimum temperature that a surface will be when the label is applied
    • Service Temperature Range – lowest and highest temperatures the label will be exposed to after it is applied
    • Special inks should be used if label will be thermal transfer imprinted over the press printed ink.
  • It is best to avoid press printed ink in areas where a label will be direct thermal imprinted.
  • Heat resistant ink should be used if label will be direct transfer imprinted in a press printed ink area.
  • Direct thermal images can be in colors other than black if special materials are used.
  • Direct thermal should only be used for short term use, the image created is not as fade resistant as thermal transfer or laser imprints. 
  • Thermal Transfer ribbons are available in many colors as well as black.
  • Most laser papers are not acceptable for ink jet printer use.
  • It is highly uncommon to find a laser film for use in color laser printers.
  • Laser labels should be protected in plastic until ready for use
    • Up to 24 hours prior to inserting labels into a laser printer, the plastic packaging should be opened in the printer room so labels can acclimate to alleviate printer jams

See Labels – Continuing Education section for more details.

  • All-temp, cold temp, freezer and removable adhesives tend to be “soft” so they can flow onto a surface for better adhesion.
    • This characteristic increase the possibility of adhesive ooze on the edges of labels.

See Labels – Continuing Education section for more details.

  • Pattern adhesive is used to leave an area of no adhesive on the edge of a label to make it easier to grasp the label and remove it from the liner.
    • Often used in cold environments (warehouses) where labels are used by people wearing gloves.
