FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Fully customised labels, in terms of size, shape, quantity, colors as well as material options are frequently required.

Q.      What does a custom label cost?

 

This is probably the most difficult to answer.  Reason for this is because it all depends on:

  • Size
  • Quantity
  • Colors
  • Type of material & finish

 

The most important factor is the size of the label and obviously the quanitity required.  The bigger the QUANTITY, the cheaper the unit price becomes.

Q.      Is digital printing not the future of printing method?

 

No and Yes! Digital printing has become more economical over the last few years, but wil basically never be able to compete with flexo and litho printing costs.  There is and always will be a need for both methods. 

Digital is more economical with small volumes and obviously origination changes. 

Flexo is STILL the preferred and most economical printing method for higher volumes.

Q.      Is there a minimum order quantity?

 

In short: NO! However, we would rather like to refer to it as an "economical" quantity.  Especially if new printing plates and cutting dies or other tooling is required, a low volume will NOT be economical at all.

To give a benchmark, an economical quantity will be approximately 150 square meters.
