The main printing technology used for printing labels is flexographic printing, where the image is applied to the material from a photopolymer embossed printing plate.
Increasingly, digital printing also offers many different options for printing labels. It is a fast and flexible printing service that is suitable for printing labels with variable information (allows you to print different information on the labels of one batch). Digital printing costs are lower, making it ideal for ordering small quantities of stickers.
