Seasonal Labels

Seasonal Labels

The proliferation of digital printing continues to enhance this niche label market.

Pumpkin spice. Celebrate fall. Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. The words “Season’s Greetings” can create big business in the labels and packaging space, especially for converters with short-run capabilities.
Seasonal labels capitalize on those times of the year that are short-lived but highly enjoyed. Popular end-use markets might include the food and beverage arena, as well as novelty and gift items.

Get ready to roll

Get ready to roll

Is 2018 the time to move work off your hybrid printer to a dedicated roll-to-roll printer?

Is your superwide hybrid printer approaching capacity? Is more than half of the total output volume of your hybrid printer roll-to-roll work? Are you looking for new areas to grow? A dedicated production-level, roll-to-roll printer may be in order.
In fact, if over 50-60% of the total output volume of your hybrid printer is roll-to-roll work, a dedicated roll-to-roll printer is recommended. It will give you faster time to market and more capacity to confidently bid on new jobs – for both roll-to-roll and rigid applications since you’ll free up time on your hybrid. And with the right printer model, you may be able to add new capabilities to produce higher-margin applications.

Watson’s chose a Roland as their first digital printer, and for every printer since then.  “Rolands have been a constant in our shop – they are easy to use and have outstanding print quality,” he said.

Color Tips Series, Vol 3: "Seeing Color In Its Best Light"

In 2015, "The Dress" broke the internet—arguments ensued and friendships were tested as people around the world couldn't decide whether it was white and gold or blue and black. While it may be a silly internet phenomenon, it does illustrate the effect that lighting can have our on perceptions of color, and why it's so important to have consistent color-matching conditions; the last things customers want is for their brand colors to face as much inconsistency as "The Dress."
