Digital Sheet Labels that are Versatile and Sustainable

Demand for printed labels continues to grow, and in many instances digital printing onto sheets is the best solution.  

If production digital printing is your occupation, are you making the most of this opportunity?

If you’re an organisation that is looking at ways to print your own labels in-house, then it’s easier than you think!

Why is Digital Printing onto sheets often the best solution?

Digital printing is the way forward for shorter runs of labels; more than just an economic necessity, it is vital for modern new modes of marketing and the strong global commitment to respect the environment. For example, marketing companies are moving from mass campaigns to more effective personalized and customized messages for groups and individuals. Furthermore, printing digitally enables you to print only what is needed, when it’s needed; this is a key part of the value chain to ensure long-term sustainability.

When is digital printing the best choice? In all kinds of self-adhesive end uses with variable information printing. These include food labels, transport & logistics, direct mailing, business forms, tags, or product labels, just to give you a few examples.

Why sheets?  Very simply, there are far more sheet-fed digital printers/copiers around than there are roll-fed printers.  Nearly everyone has one, meaning that sheet-fed digitally printed labels are a possibility for practically every printroom and office environment.
