Complex Printing Solutions is Our Speciality.Our clients use us for complex printing work, using check digits and special roll labelling through to simple incremental serial number labels. Perhaps you need sets of numbers? We print pairs, 3s, 4s – any number of labels.
Case Study – Our customer wanted to order barcode labels with a complex Luhn algorithm check digit included in the barcode. They also needed the labels printed in reverse order, so the last label printed in the sequence appeared first on the roll. To complicate matters further, a ‘header’ label identifying what numbers had been printed onto that roll was needed at the beginning of each roll.
We were able to create a database that included the check digit and built it into the number sequence, then, using our very powerful label design software, we wrote a custom script that printed the labels on our 300 dpi printer and use our label rewinder to meet the exact standards our client wanted.
Database Connections.We extract data from a wide variety of sources to print onto our customer’s labels and tags – in fact we work with 11 different file formats – including Comma Separated Variables (CSV), Text files, Excel, MS SQL Server and Access database files, but also some of the less common ones – such as SAP Intermediate Docs (SAP iDocs), OLE DB, universal data link and ODBC.
Production Times.If you have simple requirements we can often find a label off the shelf and have your labels printed in hours. For more specific needs we have access to a choice of tens of thousands of labels and tags – ready for production in a few days. For very precise and unusual projects, we can usually get the finished labels out to you in around two weeks.
What to Expect: Our Process.
|1.||First we discuss your project with you on the phone. We ask questions so we know exactly what you need to ensure we are able to help you get the labels or tags you need. We might send out samples so you can check the labels we produce for you will work as you need them to.|
|2.||Next, we agree a specification for your work, check our production schedule and email you over a confirmation of order (with an expected delivery date) and in many cases an electronic design for you to check.|
|3.||When you are happy with the specifications and price of the job, and you’ve approved the design, we go about preparing the design to print.|
|4.||We complete the design and start setting up the label printing software to accept and print the data as specified. At the same time, if we need to get your blank labels made, we’ll start the label production process.|
|5.||When we have labels and a design, we start printing. We check the quality of the barcode label printing services at the beginning and throughout the printing job. We have barcode scanners that we use to ensure the codes are readable and that they are encoding the correct information. If the job is a long one, we’ll use our label rewind unit to roll the printed labels onto cores.|
|6.||Finally we check the labels for quality once more and package them for our courier to deliver to you.|
