Ever wonder how your labels are made? Maybe not. But if you’ve ever had to label odd shaped or irregular surfaces, items that will be exposed to chemicals, moisture, outdoor elements, high temperatures, freezers, really small places, or other harsh environments, you probably thought more about it.
We’ve had some of our customers come to our Nashua facility and were amazed to see just how labels are actually made – right here.
It starts with rolls of raw material stock moving through a press – similar to the look of a printing press. The bottom of the photo shows the raw stock being pulled up through the cutting die which makes a precision cut in the shape of the final label. The “background” is removed and travels up the press and wound on a separate core. The final labels continue on the liner which will be split cut to produce one-up labels and re-wound on cores to the exact number per roll our customer specifies.
