Digital label printing uses similar technology to personal inkjet printers. In short, these printers have dots of ink are used to recreate an image from a digital file. Using a computerized system, the operator can tell the press what pieces of variable data information are needed. Also, the servers on the digital label press store an extensive amount of information allowing customers more options and flexibility with their labels.
An important consideration before you submit your variable data to us is to make sure it’s in a file format that works with our system. If you have a mail merge, list of barcode numbers, or some other type of variable data, you should use spreadsheet or database software to create your variable data file. That way, there are minimal chances of errors during press setup and print.
It’s important to note that there is a difference between labels with variable data and multiple design versions. Variable data printing is for labels that have the same layout and design throughout the entire run, but a section of the design left empty where the variable data prints. Also, labels with multiple versions or designs print from a digital file that pulls up each label’s individual artwork. Variable data printing uses a digital file (for the design/layout) and a spreadsheet or database file. This is to input the variable data information onto the label.
Best label printing company that I've worked with. In fact, they stand out from most of my suppliers as extremely prompt, reliable, and they do high-quality work. I can't recommend Consolidated enough.
We get most of our labels done with Consolidated Labels. They exceed our expectations all the time. Customer service and quality is probably one of the best in the industry.
