In-House Label Printing for Contract Packaging
When it comes to the North American contract packaging industry, why are companies like yours increasingly investing in in-house label-printing solutions?
Contract packagers report lead times for their labels are 7-10 days, longer if their label vendors are running a new design. If a label vendor only has conventional printing presses on their production floor, lead times can take even longer and minimum job sizes are usually around 1,000- 2,000 linear feet. However, most contract packagers have run sizes much smaller than that. If a label vendor has digital production presses on their production floor, you’re going to pay an ultra-premium for those labels. With multiple SKU’s, small runs and the need for break-out color – you need a better solution
