  • Starting out printing labels

    We are a small print shop and regularly get asked to print labels. We usually just use our xerox digital press but the last lot of labels we were asked to do (aluminium backed) wouldn’t work on the xerox so we decided to buy an Oki C712 due to it having a straight paper path.

    Now, the aluminium backed labels worked fine but I’m generally not overly thrilled with the quality and have been told an inkjet based system would be better. Is this correct?

    we don’t have a huge budget, especially as we’ve just bought this Oki, but would welcome advise/opinions on where to start.

    Hi Gazfocus, if you're located in the US. Muratec America has a complete line of digital ink presses. I have never tried the aluminum backed labels, but doing some digging for you. Here's a link for you http://www.muratec.com/industrial-label-presses/

      We are in the UK unfortunately. We’ve tried a few ‘inkjet’ solutions with pigment ink which haven’t worked so thinking about whether something like the Epson C3500 or just biting the bullet and buying an ecosolvent print and cut machine.

        While saying "aluminium backed" Do you mean something like in the photo? If yes, we use HP Indigo 7600. It is a digital press. It is working fine we are happy.

                  Word lays out label contents in a table that's designed to match them. For a batch of different labels, we recommend starting your document with a label template check online platforms.

                    Hi All, I have written the following blog post on this topic. It is particularly focussed on people which buy desktop Memjet printers. The quality is ok for images and photos, but particularly poor for solid blocks of colours due to banding. The water based inks also need some form of protection for most types of applications. Check out the article here:
