Adhesives

One of the important components of a good label is the right adhesive. There is not one adhesive that is better than another; there is only an adhesive that is better for a certain application than another. Factors such as application temperature, initial tack, ultimate adhesion, and resistance to: UV light, solvents, and extreme temperatures should be taken in to consideration when selecting what to use.

Flexo or Digital

American Label offers two different options when it comes to your printing needs: Flexography and Digital.

Flexo is the standard in label printing; this option uses plates on a traditional press. This is ideal for full production runs, usually 5-10M and up and high quantity printing.

Digital is a plate-less alternative often used for short runs, usually less than 5-10M. Because of the direct-to print technology there are no plate charges or copy/color change charges. Digital is also great for mock-ups or one’s and two’s when you aren’t quite ready to go into a full production run. Another great aspect of digital is the ability to do variable data, random image, consecutive bar coding, and personalization of each piece.
