How to Effectively Decrease the Printing Cost of Label Printing

1. Due to the lack of understanding of the customer's requirements for print performance and other aspects, high-grade materials have been used in production, but in fact, as long as medium and low-grade materials are selected, they can meet the requirements of customers.

2. Because customers do not understand the properties of materials, blindly make some hard demands on the label manufacturers (such as according to foreign material number, etc.), resulting in unnecessary cost increase.
For the first case, business personnel should strengthen communication with customers to understand the customer's requirements for product performance and other aspects, and allow experienced technical personnel to check to avoid oversizing.
For the second case, printing manufacturers should make more efforts in coordinating with customers, and persuade customers through appropriate methods, which may encounter a lot of resistance, but it is very important to reduce costs.
In addition, there are no special requirements, some label printing manufacturers use "joint joint venture materials" or through the ISO certification of the material section. Their main reason for doing so is to take into account the better performance of these materials, to meet the requirements of label printing, easier to reach agreement with the customer, and it is simple and convenient to choose. But to better achieve the purpose of reducing costs, when printing different grades of labels, you can use different grades of ink, paper, stickers and other materials, in order to effectively control the waste of the label printing process.

Reasonable choice of printing methods Faced with unique printing methods, in order to reduce equipment debugging time, improve production efficiency, and to a certain extent improve the quality of products to meet customer needs, label printing manufacturers often according to different grades and different batches of live After the products are categorized, different printing methods are used for printing.
At present, China's label printing is mainly based on embossing, offset printing and screen printing, while developed countries such as Europe and the United States mainly adopt flexographic printing methods. With the continuous improvement of the domestic plate-making level and the continuous reduction of prices, the overall cost of flexographic printing will be greatly reduced. Its low input and high output will attract more and more label manufacturers. In the long run, flexographic printing will be the first choice for packaging printing, especially for label printing. In the field of label printing, combination printing has become more and more popular. One of the reasons is that it can complete printing and post-processing at a time, which not only improves the production efficiency, but also significantly reduces the cost of label printing.
In addition, when the printing method is selected, if the machine is properly adjusted, it can also reduce material waste and machine wear. For example, when printing high-grade labels, first use ordinary, cheaper special light paper to debug the machine, and then change to a better material for printing; when debugging the machine, start the machine at a medium speed, and then adjust the speed and speed up the machine. At the same time the pressure of the version of the school color, after the completion of these two steps and then school color.

Post-printing die-cutting attention to detail When using offline die-cutting, die-cutting inaccuracies often occur, and even a large number of labels may be scrapped, and debugging must be stopped. If the inspector masters the bad die-cutting standards, it will also increase the cost of printing.
In addition, in the printing of some adhesive labels (especially some small-area labels), the labels often appear stuck in the process of die cutting and waste disposal, which is also one of the main reasons for the waste of printed materials. Suggestions can be taken as follows.

1. When designing a label, the area of ​​the label can be appropriately increased, and the shape of the label should not be too complicated and a reasonable arrangement is adopted.

2. Appropriately reduce the temperature of the adhesive material storage workshop and the printing shop to prevent the viscosity of the adhesive material on the adhesive material from falling.

3. Replace die-cutting blades that use a long time and have a dull blade, or stick a sponge piece between the die-cut plate and the blade, and you can also remake the die-cut plate.

4. Through the method of die-cutting the bottom plate, the pressure of the die-cut plate is adjusted so that the pressure of the die-cut plate is even and the depth of the die-cut creasing is consistent.

5. Improve the speed of die-cutting.

Strict control of scientific management In order to reduce the cost of printing labels, in addition to making more efforts in various processes, it should also actively implement standardized and digital management. While introducing new equipment, new processes, and new technologies, domestic label printing companies should establish new management concepts, establish new management systems, and comprehensively improve the quality of label production and reduce costs with scientific and standardized management. In this respect, Tianjin Linke Industrial Co., Ltd. provided us with a good example. Figure 1 shows the company's current management model. According to the person in charge, this management model has played a significant role in reducing production costs, especially for the management of new products.

Determine product requirements, review product requirements, production preparation, production planning, product production implementation, product inspection, product delivery.

In short, a scientific management model can organically combine the various process steps of label production to achieve overall control of the production process.

Concluding remarks Reducing the cost of printing labels is a global task, and the key is to make reasonable plans in the prepress design stage, taking into account the process characteristics of each process, and to control the label printing as a whole through scientific management. Assuring quality while reducing waste.
In the entire production process, the coordination between label printing manufacturers and customers has also been through them, affecting every aspect of label printing. For customers who make clear requirements, label printing manufacturers should coordinate the relationship between production and customer requirements as far as possible according to the actual situation of the factory, and minimize the cost of label printing.
