Print Samples: Everything Needs a Label

There are dozens of ways you might create a label. You might do it on your desktop printer using label stock bought online or at the office supply store. If you need more volume, you may look to find a provider who can meet your needs. There are online label printers that use web-to-print technology and there are traditional commercial label printers that can handle everything from simple monochrome labels to multi-color labels that glow, shine, and intrigue!

In this episode, we looked at the labels produced on the SCREEN UV devices, which have excellent color management, a great range of supported substrates, and the ability to make every label different! The value proposition of digital label printing is that you can set up jobs that support short runs, long runs, and everything between. Another thing we touch on in this episode is the option to add Augmented Reality triggers to labels, which we covered more deeply in our episode focused on the 19 Crimes wine labels you may see in your local liquor purveyor.

Take a look at this video as we talk about why you might want to create one yourself!
