Press Proofs

In addition to our standard PDF press proof procedure, Insignia Labels offer a printed label press proof service, where if you wish, you can fully evaluate your labels before ordering any production quantities. This service gives peace of mind that the labels will be suitable for your application. Once you have approved your press proof this then becomes your contract standard and you will have had the opportunity to apply the label to your product to ensure it meets your requirements before you have to order large production quantities.

Digital press proofs are also useful as they are printed on our production presses using production standard labelstock and so they fully represent the physical attributes of the printed labels so adhesive strength, waterproof or solvent protection etc can be assessed. We can supply press proofs made from different materials and finish combinations so you can compare cost and function for example of paper labels to polylaser labels with a gloss over-lamination.

As the digital label printing process does not require expensive printing plates, set up costs are minimal and since we print labels direct from your artwork file we can quickly print your labels as press proofs on our production presses using the exact production printed labels material and finish.

Printed labels press proofs are not die-cut but you can cut out the label to fully approve the print quality, colour and content and many of our customers apply the label to their product for exhibitions, presentations, photo and promotional initiatives and to make sure the label correctly fits their product, which is especially important for special shaped labels. Most label printing presses, both digital and flexographic, utilise cutters to cut the label to the desired size, but because our digital printing capabilities extend to a Primera FX1200 label finishing centre, we can cut labels to any shape without the need for expensive cutter dies, greatly increasing the design opportunities for your labels.
