High Speed Digital Technology for Long Label Runs with Multiple Versions

Repacorp’s new 13″ wide  high-speed press combines the productivity associated with flexo (speeds up to 246 ft/min) with the flexibility offered by rapid job change. Our 4-color digital press uses curable UV inks, offers an opaque white option, cold foil and two additional flexo stations for PMS colors, fluorescents, metallic ink or spot varnish. Kyocera print heads provide 600 dpi native resolution, which means more smaller drops are printed in order to create finer detail on both images and small point text.

 

Our press offers back printing, black variable data, and laminating with roll to roll or roll to sheet finishing on just about any material. Our three flexo die stations provide top cutting, perforating, sheeting and undercutting capabilities. To top it all off, we added an Advanced Vision Technology system that delivers 100% in-line print inspection and quality control. With the AVT system we are able to ensure quality and color repeatability from label to label and from one run to the next.

Note: This press is for large label runs (ideal for large runs with multiple SKUs). It is not cost effective for short runs and does not replace our five digital short run presses with laser cutting located in Ohio, Wisconsin and Arizona.

Make Shape Part of the Brand

Studies by the Operative Communications Hierarchy have found  that we are affected by the elements of package design in the following order: colors, shapes, symbols, and words. Your customers put a lot of thought into developing their logo (symbol) and choosing their label’s color, but have they given any thought to making thier label’s shape part of their brand?     

With Repacorp’s digital labels with laser cutting, there are no tooling charges. We can cut odd shapes, inner cutouts, perforations and scores. The shape of your customer’s label can be as intricate and creative as their imagination. Simply provide a die line on a separate layer of the artwork, and we will cut thier labels into a unique brand shape, for each product segment, throughout their brand.

Great Quote Module Feedback!

Repacorp has received a lot of great feedback from companies that have added our Distributor Quote Module for digital labels to their website. One of the best suggestions was that Repacorp provide an additional link, free of charge, which can be placed on the distributor’s Intranet for internal quoting.   With two links, distributors are able to link one quote module to their website, with their mark up. They are placing the second link, with no markup, on their internal Intranet. If they don’t have an Intranet, they are placing the link in customer service’s “Favorites” in their web browser. Now their customer service representatives can provide customers with instant live pricing!

Tool Free Cutting System

Labels cut special shape

Due to our proprietary cutting system, we do not charge for dies. Our tool-free cutting method allows us to cut any desired shape—just provide a die line with your artwork.

With the ability to produce labels any shape imaginable, Repacorp has enabled designers to create labels that stand out on the shelves.  With digital short label runs (no plates or dies), it is now very cost effective to test designs in marketing research or update the look of a product’s label.

We Have Updated Our Digital Presses!

You can now order label widths up to 7.55”. We have also added white opaque ink. Choose from 4-color process or 4-color process plus white ink.

To reproduce full-color images, we use a digital 4-color process press. In 4-color process printing, four ink colors are placed on the label in layers of dots that combine to create the illusion of thousands of colors. However, 4-color process inks are transparent. If you are printing on a clear film or a metallic material, you might want to print opaque white ink behind a picture, barcode or text so that it is more easily seen.
