Digital Printing FAQ

Q? CAN I SPECIFY A PMS COLOR?

A.No. The Jetrion 4000 prints using process colors. That means all PMS colors will be approximated and will be "close."   Remember that you can request a press proof before you order so that you can see exactly what your label will look like on your product.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Q? WHAT IS THE MINIMUM NUMBER OF LABELS I CAN ORDER?

A.

There is no minimum.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Q? WHEN CAN I HAVE MY LABELS?

A.

Under normal circumstances, your labels will ship within 7 to 10 business days after you approve the artwork. If you absolutely must have them the next day, we will do our best! In many cases, if the artwork is approved we assist with more demanding lead times.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Q? WHAT KIND OF LABEL PROOF WILL I GET?

A.

That is up to you. Most of the time customers prefer to approve a PDF proof from their computer screen. One of the advantages of digital printing, however, is that you can also see a proof that was printed on the press. They can then be hand-applied directly to your product so that you can see exactly what the finished product will look like.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Q? HOW DO I CHOOSE A SIZE FOR MY DIGITAL LABEL?

A.

We have more than 4,000 different sizes to choose from, including ovals, circles, round-corner rectangles, starbursts and more. You can select from one of the standard sizes on our quote page. If you don't see the exact size or shape you need, call one of our customer service representatives. We most likely will have something that is very close. We also have the option of ordering exactly what you are looking for.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Q? WHAT MATERIAL SHOULD I CHOOSE FOR MY DIGITAL LABEL?

A.

If you are looking to achieve a glossy, durable finish white BOPP (a polypropylene label stock that is waterproof) is the material that we most often recommend. Other options for your labels are hi-gloss, semi-gloss and bright silver- and gold-laminated foil.

If a matte finish is what you are looking for, we recommend dull silver- and gold-laminated foil, matte litho, trans thermal or textured linen.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Q? WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF HAVING MY LABELS PRINTED DIGITALLY?

A.

Digital printing is a perfect solution for short-run orders (20,000 or less) and multiple copy orders. Because no printing plates are involved several different copies can be combined and printed together. Ample Industries uses a Jetrion 4000. Labels that are produced digitally are very high quality, cost-effective and can be delivered to your door in a few days.
