Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you spend £££'s on printing plates for multiple sorts?
    • No plate costs whatsoever, regardless of the number of sorts or the complexity of the design.
  • Artwork for Printed Labels. What format should I supply artwork for your Xeikon printed digital labels?
    • The Labelsprint digital labels print process delivers BRAND LABELS not bland labels and features the eco-friendly Xeikon digital label press technology which does not require label printing plates. We print labels direct from your file as explained in the Artwork Guidelines on this website. We print 600 or 1,200 dpi using new non-contact dry toner which enables us to print many different full colour label designs in a single press run achieving a large process colour gamut across a wide tone range printing labels with deep solids and fine highlights from your files. Ideally therefore for ranges of colour labels your artwork would be supplied as high res PDF, created and saved in Adobe Illustrator with illustrations imported and fonts outlined all at 300dpi resolution. We can and do receive files in many other formats so please contact us on 01745 360 159 as soon as you have outline designs, we are not designers but we can help technically, suggest optimum approaches and print press proofs direct from your files and supply samples.
  • Asset Tracking Labels. Can you print data labels as variable data asset tracking labels across different sorts?
    • Our unique Variable Array Label Identifier (VALID) label workflow process enables Labelsprint to digitally print labels with variable colour & alphanumeric digital label content including bar codes; all printed under the label varnish or laminated digital label surface for durability and clarity.
  • Automatic Label Application. Do you print labels that are auto applied and what do I need to consider?
    • Labelsprint digital printed labels are frequently processed through automatic label application systems. It is important to define the printed label winding specification in terms of leading edge, core size and reel size.
  • Bag Labels. Do you print labels for bags and what do I need to consider?
    • Our digital printed labels are applied to bags made from various materials. For paper bags a general purpose permanent self adhesive paper label is probably adequate. For fabric bags with fibrous surface a peelable adhesive label may be best but a lot depends on the application. Please do contact Labelsprint Ltd for free printed label samples so you can test apply to ensure the self adhesive label material is suitable.
  • Box Labels. Do you print digital labels for boxes of different sizes?
    • Our digital printed labels are applied to boxes made from various materials. For cardboard boxes a general purpose permanent self adhesive paper label is probably adequate. For metal or plastic boxes with water resistant surface a synthetic label may be best but a lot depends on the application. Please do contact Labelsprint Ltd for free printed label samples so you can test apply to ensure the self adhesive label material is suitable.
  • Bin Labels. Does your process print labels for waste bins?
    • Labelsprint labels are applied to waste bins sometimes made from HDPE or plastic materials. We find that a rubber based general purpose permanent self adhesive label is best. Our Xeikon dry toner, particularly the QA-I versions are lightfast and most appropriate for labels exposed to sunlight though you should test samples for adhesion and exposure. Please do contact Labelsprint Ltd 01745 360 159 for free printed label samples so you can test apply to ensure the self adhesive label material is suitable.
  • Bottle Labels. Do you print labels for glass and PET bottles and what do I need to consider?
    • Our digital printed labels are applied to glass and PET bottles. Depending on the application and time-life of the product different materials and finishes may be applied - please contact Labelsprint Ltd for details. Printed label material considerations include chilled drinks where the label may attract condensation, if the label needs to be removed (Beer label collectors). Our digital print is solvent free and fused to the web in an eco-friendly process so it is unlikely to run if the contents of a drink bottle spill onto the printed label. Please do contact Labelsprint Ltd for free printed label samples so you can test apply to ensure the self adhesive label material is suitable.
  • Beauty Product Printed Labels. Do you print labels for bath and cosmetic products and what do I need to consider?
    • Our fast digital printed labels are applied to various containers for cosmetic creams and oils etc. Labels printed for containers made from various materials including glass and synthetics are typically based on a general purpose permanent self adhesive waterproof label but a lot depends on the application. Please do contact Labelsprint Ltd for free printed label samples so you can test apply to ensure the self adhesive label material is suitable.
  • Chemical Labels. We need waterproof and insoluble print labels for cleaning chemical containers, small run labels of many sorts, fast low cost printed labels, can you deliver this?
    • Traditionally many printed labels for chemical containers have been over-laminated to protect label print from spillage but our digital labels print process does not use solvent based inks and so the ink is unlikely to run if the chemical spills onto the label saving the cost of lamination - you need to test this for yourself with our free samples. Our synthetic labels are waterproof and we specialise in short run labels printed across different sorts in a single run, all finished to rolls.
  • Car Clean Chemical Labels. Do you print labels for car cleaning chemical containers and what do I need to consider?
    • We digitally print self adhesive labels to rolls for car cleaning chemicals. Our digital labels print is full colour, high quality. Traditionally many printed labels for car cleaner containers have been over-laminated to protect label print from spillage but our digital labels print process does not use solvent based inks and so the ink is unlikely to run if the chemical spills onto the label saving the cost of lamination - you need to test this for yourself with our free samples. Our synthetic labels are waterproof and we specialise in short run labels printed across different sorts in a single run, all finished to rolls.
  • Cheese Labels Print. Do you print labels for cheese and what do I need to consider?
    • We do print labels for cheese and we specialise in short run cheese labels printed to high standards of quality on rolls and from your files without plate costs. Our digital labels print process is eco friendly and food agency approved. Usually cheese labels are printed on synthetic waterproof and cleanable material with a matt or gloss finish. Please do contact us for free samples.
  • Container Labels. Do you print labels for parts and material containers and what do I need to consider?
    • We digitally print labels for parts identification and brand labeling for containers. This is a broad industrial labels category and as in other examples a methodical approach is required to arrive at the optimum functional and cost effective label specification. Starting with materials we supply FOC samples, then we can print press proofs of your artwork and help you to configure label sizes to maximise economy. With digital labels print the trick in part is to minimise the number of different label sizes and maximise the number of different short run designs of each size.
  • Data Labels. We need variable data printed labels, what do I need to consider?
    • Our unique Variable Array Label Identifier (VALID) label workflow process enables Labelsprint to digitally print labels with variable colour & alphanumeric digital label content including bar codes; all printed under the label varnish or laminated digital label surface for durability and clarity. Contact us for samples and call to discuss your specific requirement.
  • Delivery of Printed Labels. Do you deliver printed labels on rolls and what do I need to consider?
    • As the leading digital label printers we deliver labels across the UK, Ireland and EU. Our UK courier service standard charge is based on size and weight of container for next business day delivery. For pre-12 a.m. or earlier other rates apply. Please contact us for specific charges, some of our local clients collect and some distance customers also arrange collection via their regular contractor.
  • Die Cut Printed Labels. Do you print and die labels to rolls and what do I need to consider?
    • We operate 2 leading edge Xeikon digital label printing presses and each press has full inline printed label finishing including varnish, lamination, die-cutting, slitting, waste removal and reeling by sorts. We have a large range of standard shape die cutters and many special shape cutters for trigger bottle labels, perforated labels, tamper evident labels etc. Please contact us with your label needs so we can find the cutter you need, 85% of new customers find we have the cutters they need and when a new cutter is required it can be obtained in 2 days.
  • Digital Labels Print. Do you print digital small run labels and what do I need to consider?
    • We digitally print small run brand labels. This is a broad printed labels category and as in other examples a methodical approach is required to arrive at the optimum functional and cost effective label specification. Starting with materials we supply FOC samples, then we can print press proofs of your artwork with a single proof containing many designs if necessary and we help you to configure label sizes to maximise economy. With digital labels print the trick in part is to minimise the number of different label sizes and maximise the number of different short run designs of each size. An order for 1,000 labels could be 100 each of 10 different full colour designs.
  • Eco Friendly Labels Print. Do you print eco-friendly labels and what do I need to consider?
    • The subject of eco-friendliness of printed labels extends far beyond self adhesive label stock; these materials are made in global volumes and label printers are all looking forward to the continued efforts of the manufacturers to make materials bio-degradable etc. Beyond materials however are some major eco-friendly benefits from our digital labels print process. We do not use printing plates - we print direct from your file so it is not necessary to make, transport, clean, store and dispose of the expensive and wasteful polymer or metal printing plates. We do not use solvent based inks in our dry toner process so not only do we print a better quality we do not abate fumes to atmosphere or create wet waste. Our short run label print process also uses less set-up adding to our waste control operation. In this and continuing ways Labelsprint digital labels print is about as eco-friendly as it gets.
  • Fast Labels print. Do you print labels fast and what do I need to consider?
    • If we have your artwork on file and a cutter in stock then with 2 presses with all in-line finishing we can print immediately, no plates to wait for. Our typical lead time is 3 days.
  • Food Labels Printed. Do you print food labels andwhat do I need to consider?
    • We do print labels for various food products and we specialise in short run food labels printed to high standards of quality, die cut on rolls and from your files without plate costs. Our digital labels print process is eco friendly and food agency approved. Food labels are printed on self adhesive paper or synthetic waterproof, freezer and cleanable material with a matt or gloss finish. Please do contact us for free samples.
  • Food Supplements Printed Labels. Do you print food supplement labels?
    • We do print labels for various food supplement products and we specialise in short run food supplement labels printed to high standards of quality, die cut on rolls and from your files without plate costs.

Our digital labels print process is eco friendly and food agency approved. Frozen food labels are printed on self adhesive synthetic waterproof material with a freezer grade adhesive and a matt or gloss printed label finish. It is important to define labels for storage in a freezer or fast freeze processes where the temperature can go much lower than a product freezer. Please do contact us for free samples.
  • Gloss Labels. Do you print gloss labels and what do I need to consider?
    • Our gloss finish digital printed labels can be varnish finished or over-laminated. The varnish we apply is UV cured and we offer thermally receptive options where labels maybe overprinted with say "best before" or final weight data. Our digital label varnish is applied after print to produce a shiny appearance and to protect the label print though our labels print process does not use solvents - our toner is fused to the label stock as part of the digital label process. Toner applied this way is relatively insoluble, durable and achieves fine text and smooth tones. It is not usually necessary to laminate these labels for protection unless the environment where the labels are applied is likely to expose the label to risk i.e. bin labels. Please contact us for free gloss varnished and over-laminated label samples.
  • Jam Jar Labels Print. Do you print jam labels and what do I need to consider?
    • We do print jam jar labels and we specialise in short run preserves labels printed to high standards of quality, die cut on rolls and from your files without plate costs.

Please do contact us for free samples.
  • Label Materials. What are the label material options and why?
    • Our digital labels are printed on industry standard self adhesive label materials. Typically we print labels on white or clear polypropylene and semi-gloss paper; occasionally other special materials like high-tack and velour stock. Standard materials are available as permanent or removable strength adhesive, gloss or matt UV varnish or adhesive over-lamination options. PP is waterproof and there are freezer-proof versions available. Labels printed on clear PP may require a white separation file depending on the application. Please contact us for printed label samples so you can test apply to assess the options.
  • Labels Printed on Rolls. Do you print labels on rolls and what do I need to consider?
    • We print digital labels to rolls, die cut and waste removed ready for hand or automatic application. We operate 2 Xeikon digital label presses each having all label finishing inline including UV varnish, over-lamination, semi-rotary die cutting, slitting waste removal and reeling on cores. Please contact us for printed label samples.
  • Laminated Labels. Do you print laminated labels and what do I need to consider?
    • We print labels with matt or gloss over-lamination. These finishes are either applied for visual effect or environmental reasons where for example the label comes under some possible rough treatment i.e. Bin Labels. Contact us for free printed label samples that you can assess and test apply.
  • Low Cost Labels Print. Do you print cheap labels and what do I need to consider?
    • We don't print cheap labels but we do print low cost labels. Because we are digital we don't require expensive printing plates so an order on us for say 1,000 labels can be 100 labels each of 10 different full colour designs for the same price. Please run an instant quote for yourself from this LabelSprint website and contact us for printed label samples.

      Labelsprint digital labels are printed to rolls and there are several important aspects to this particularly if your labels are to be automatically applied. For a rectangular label example the edge of the printed label leading off the reel is often the height as viewed on the container and this leading edge needs to be defined as does the core size and maximum reel size and the direction of winding. We will clarify these aspects with you as we establish a specification for your labels so do contact us for free printed label samples and advice on your printed labels specifications.
  • Security Labels. Do you print security labels and what do I need to consider?
    • Labelsprint digital labels are often applied as security labels for example, tamper evident printed labels, counterfeit protection labels, VOID, and securty seals. In each case the label needs to be strictly specified so please contact us for samples and to discuss your security label needs.

Our synthetic labels are waterproof and we specialise in short run labels printed across different sorts in a single run, all finished to rolls.
  • How many labels are on a roll?
    • If you know the core size and outside diamter of the roll, the formula to calculate the approximate number of labels is as follows.
      Square the outside diameter of the roll and subtract the square of the core size. Multiply the result by 109.0798. Divide that by the repeat length (which is the measurement from the top of one label to the top of the next label, inlcluding the gap in between.
      Example: For a roll of 4” wide by 2” long with a 1/8” gap, a 3” core and a total roll diameter of 7.9”.
      (7.9 x 7.9) - (3 x 3) = 53.41
      53.41 x 109.0798 = 5825.952
      5825.952 / 2.125 = 2741.62 (approximately 2,741 labels per roll)
  • I am a new business, how do I register my own barcodes?
    • The numbers most commonly shown in barcodes on products are also used in electronic messages such as orders, invoices and despatch advices.
      These unique numbers have no meaning, but they act as a link to information held on databases about each product line, company, location, shipping unit or asset that is being identified. The way in which companies and organisations use these numbers is standardised internationally, which means that standard electronic business documents can be exchanged simply, accurately and quickly in all global supply chains.
      GS1 UK are worldwide authority for the GS1 system (a common language of electronic identification and communication that can be used by any organization regardless of size, industry or location. Companies looking to register a barcode will need to join GS1 UK to do so.
      Brand owners assign a globally unique number, which replaces proprietary or in-house codes. The number includes the company prefix number attributed to each GS1 UK member and an item reference. The unique numbers have no meaning: when scanned or used, each number acts as a key to look up pre-defined information from a separate database.
      The most widely used numbers, Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), are those used to identify product items. A GTIN is used to identify any product that which can be priced, ordered or invoiced at any point in the supply chain. More information about bar codes can be found in the bar code symbologies section
      To join GS1 UK and to register your own barcode, visit www.gs1uk.org
  • What are different barcodes for?
    • EAN 13 is used mostly for retail items which will be scanned at point of sale. The barcode encodes 13 data digits with an optional addon of 2 or 5 digits. The thirteenth data digit acts as a check digit for the first twelve.
      EAN 8 is used mostly for smaller retail items which will be scanned at point of sale. The barcode encodes 8 data digits with the eighth data digit acts as a check digit for the first seven.
      EAN 128 is used for encoding variable information about items. It is often used on pallet labels to identify the contents of crates and boxes. Note: EAN 128 is similar to but different from CODE 128.
      CODE 39 is used for encoding serial numbers and other character sequences. Up to 40 characters may be encoded.
      ISBN is used mostly for publishing. The barcode encodes a ten-digit ISBN number with an optional addon of 2 or 5 digits. The barcode is based on the EAN 13 symbology and the number appearing below the barcode is derived from the ISBN number which is written above the barcode.
      UPC A (or UPC-10) is used mostly for retail items which will be scanned at point of sale. The barcode encodes 12 data digits with an optional addon of 2 or 5 digits. The twelth digit is a check digit for the first eleven.
      ITF is used mostly on materials such as cardboard where print quality is poor. The barcode may encode 14 data digits, 6 addon digits or both. The fourteenth digit can be used as a check digit if necessary.
