Are you struggling to produce special large label sizes for your business? Making long label sizes can quickly become expensive when sending these projects out to a printing company. These special orders typically come with additional customizations fees that can add up fast and cut into your profit margins.
The extra customization fees come from the necessary step of cutting the finished label. This cutting process is called label finishing or label die-cutting. Labels are not ready for use immediately after printing. The finishing process is what provides the ability to remove the label so that it can be attached and used.
But why does this step cost so much for making long label sizes?
In the distant past, a cutting press that fits the label size was made by bending the blade according to the label shape. This step is very time consuming and it adds significant cost to the production process.
Later technology brought the use of a flexible die to handle the cutting process. This was a method of engraving labels on a thin sheet and winding them around a circular cylinder. However, this method also has the disadvantage of the extensive time and cost to produce a die for each cutting size.
This is where additional customization fees come from. When dealing with making long label sizes or any other unusual size, there are fees involved with making a new die for the project.
The newest developments in label cutting brings the ability to make cuts via laser. Laser cutting does not require costly blade manufacturing. No matter how unique the shape of your label, you can cut the label as soon as you design the knife line on your computer. Laser cutting has various advantages. You can easily cut complex shapes as well as make long label sizes.
