The Machines That Print the Labels

Product manufacturers rarely know and are hardly interested about how the beautiful and attractive printed labels that they ordered actually become a reality. This is not the ideal situation, as doing so the people who need sticker labels do not appreciate the sophisticated technology and expertise that goes into the making of the labels, and neither realizes how much more the machines and the label manufacturers can do. We shall look into a few of the machines that are currently used by JK Labels and what they are capable of doing:

Gallus EM 280

The Gallus EM 280 is manufactured by Gallus, Switzerland and is the subsidiary of Heidelberg, Germany. The Gallus EM 280 is an excellent machine to produce high quality sticker labels in small and medium sized runs. The Gallus EM 280 comes with an option of printing in seven or eight colours and includes high level of specialisation for applications like tickets, booklet and multi-web labels. The speed at which the labels are produced coupled with the UV technology makes it ideal for most types of labels.

Speedmaster XL 106

The Speedmaster XL 106 is a sheetfed offset printer, as opposed to traditional flexographic ones, and is capable of printing as many as 18000 transparent sheets per hour. The speed and accuracy of the machines is unmatched by any other and is ideal for customers requiring very large volumes of high quality UV printed labels.

Rising Trends in Cosmetic and Healthcare Product labels

Plain and simple labels for the soaps and lotions used two decades back are now well and truly history. Today the labels of FMCG products are perhaps the most advanced in terms of technology and diverse in terms of materials used. It is because printed labels play a very important role in developing an attractive packaging of a product, something that can entice the consumer into trying the product out. Today a large variety of sticker labels, self adhesive labels and transparent labels are being used in the packaging of the FMCG products.

Among the rising trends, transparent labels are perhaps the most widely used today. Most transparent labels are made out of polypropylene, polyethylene and polyester. These transparent labels enable the very innovative form of packaging where the insides of the packaging are visible to the buyer. They are most frequently used together with transparent packaging bottles for products like shower gels, shampoos and other liquid products. Other products like tubes and bottles that are squeezed several times have seen increased use of squeezable self adhesive labels. These labels are usually laminated and moisture resistant so that they withstand the rough handling on the surface. The adhesive of the products also needs to be stronger than the ordinary.

Embossed labels, ‘soft touch’  sticker labels and screen printed labels for added texture are some other new trends in label manufacturing. Embossed labels are used mostly on bottles that are likely to be picked up by the consumer before buying. The embossed logo of the product can give a nice feel to the consumer and persuade him/her to try the product out. The same can be said about ‘soft touch and textured labels. The labels can indeed make the first time buyer to try the product, just because its label feels good in his/her hands.

Labels for the Consumer Electronics Industry

The Consumer electronics Industry’s label requirements are vastly different from other industries like the food and wine or the cosmetics industry. In a nutshell, the consumer electronics industry needs a very wide array of the labels serving different purposes and life spans. Factors to look for, when getting labels for electronics products are:

1.   Durability

Since the life span of a consumer electronics product is way longer than a bottle of wine or shampoo, the printed labels need to be far more durable and continue to look as new, even after use of many years. The self adhesive labels thus need to be much stronger yet look attractive and not damage the product itself.

2.   Ease of removal

The labels carrying installation and usage instructions must be easy-to-remove. Thermal logos are ideal for these purposes and can be produced to create a ‘no-label-look’. It is a label produced without any ink and meant for temporary use only.

3.   Security

This is another feature that is very important in a consumer electronics labels. Since counterfeiting is on a high, most companies now look for labels using speciality ink or holograms. The brand logos and product codes are needed to be printed so that they are very clear. Embossed product labels are often used as a method to convey the genuineness of the product too.

Consumer electronics are therefore far more sophisticated than the average printed labels. Printing them would require the services of label manufacturers with experience in this field. One such company is www.jklabels.com. They have a vast experience in this field, having served clients like Tata Sky, Voltas and Videocon.
