Print and Apply Printing FAQs
What is Print and Apply Labeling?
Print and apply labeling is a technique where a printer automatically affixes labels onto items such as products and packages. It is an automated procedure where labels get printed and affixed quickly and without and manual labor. Print and apply labeling saves time, improves efficiency, and is very helpful for manufacturing producing high amounts of goods.
What Kinds of Items Can Print and Apply Systems Label?
Print and apply labeling can be used for several products and across many industries. If the item has a flat surface, just about all print and apply labeling systems can handle the job. If the item you need the label is an odd shape, there are a few ways they can be labeled. Many specialty labeling systems can use a blow on method in order to gently press a label to an unusually shaped or fragile item. For more sturdy items, many print and apply systems can simply use a press on pad or tamp application.
