Digital Printing from Columbine Label really is “ALL THAT”!
Not everybody can print metallic labels. Hot-Foil-Stamping and Cold-Foil-Stamping can be costly and metallic inks just aren’t very “metallic”. At Columbine Label, we have figured out a way to create a vibrant metallic looking label that looks great AND is cost effective. This label was printed on a metallic stock with our state-of-the-art digital press and is an economical way to achieve the “hot-stamp” look. By utilizing the metallic properties of the stock and the transparency of the ink, we are able to control which areas look metallic and which do not. Tell us what you think about it!
Room environment and product packaging conditions are two major influencers on the type of label material and adhesive needed for your product? •Is your product labeled before or after the filling process? •Is the packaging dry and free of contaminants, or do you deal with slight condensation? •What is the temperature of the product when you apply the label? After application, is there an extreme temperature difference (i.e. freezer, oven…)? •Are you applying your label in a temperature controlled environment? At Columbine Label we can analyze your label requirements to make sure you are using the right materials.

There are many variables in custom label printing, because… well, every job is custom. Maybe you are a startup company and need good pricing on a small quantity and need consistency with small runs that only happen on an as needed basis. Maybe you are a corporation who distributes millions of labels to franchises or retail operations. Both of these types of companies and every business model in between will have a different set of label needs.
Not only are your labels custom, your needs are custom as well. We get that. It really is all about you.
- Is your label company providing expert advice regarding best practices and new technology for achieving your desired result?
- Can your label company produce both small runs and mass quantity?
- Are you able to ask for recommendations on material types and product testing prior to ordering?
- Do you feel comfortable that the company is financially solid and will be available to serve you in the future? Does their facility reflect your expectations?
- What about overall value proposition, including price, quality, timing, delivery and customer service?
- Would you feel comfortable referring your label company to others?
Often product labels are the “make or break” factor for start-up companies, and can be the bread and butter for branding, creating top of mind awareness and recognition for your audience. Labels are the first and often only form of communication you have with your customer. As with most competing products on the market today, many conditions come into the decision making process for consumers. Factors such as effectiveness, taste, quality and overall value often override price.
Next time you are running errands, look at all the choices you have as a consumer. What determines the purchases that you make for your family? Would you rather have the pasta sauce that tastes like Mom’s, or the sauce that is on sale but that no one will eat? Most people will vote for the sauce that tastes like Moms even if it is a little more expensive because as my Mom used to say “A sale is no sale if it ends up in the trash.”
We know that your time is valuable. Not only do labels need to look good and convey your unique message, they need to stick when they are supposed to stick, have the right material for the application and exposure and be a good overall value, leaving you more time to concentrate on what you do best- growing your business.
- Is your label company making it easier to achieve your branding and sales goals?
- How do you know that you are getting the best value for your money?
- How does new technology affect your labeling options?
- What makes the most sense for your individual situation?
- Does your label company deliver consistent product and stay on top of industry trends?
Sometimes, the answer lies in the question. Call us with any of your specific questions or to request a custom label quote and we will ask you the right questions in order to figure out the best solution for you.
Columbine Label Company can take your very own custom design and artwork and create custom labels and stickers that work perfectly for your product.
An attractive package, with a proper fitted custom label or sticker, creates a sense of security and trust, in a consumer. How often have you purchased a product, based solely on the packaging?
While a main goal is for a consumer to fall in love with your product, your first goal is to get them to notice your product and then purchase it; they will then be able to judge your product first hand. First impressions are extremely important. You want your product to stand out with a label or sticker created to fit.
If your packaging has a special shape (other than square or cylindrical) chances are you may need a special shape custom label or sticker so it will fit properly. Unique shaped packages are often eye catching, which is a good thing, but once you have caught your consumers’ eye, the label must be professionally sized and placed to keep their attention and to gain their trust. Allow Columbine Label to engineer a custom label with a custom fit for your product. A special shape label combined with the proper material will result in a beautiful custom labeled product.
Many containers require special shaped labels that are not rectangular, square or round.
For instance, typical deli containers have a wider mouth and taper off towards the bottom. The tapered design of a deli container will prevent a rectangular label from being applied straight.
Columbine Label can engineer a custom label to fit your tapered deli container or other unique shape perfectly. If your packaging is new, your safest bet is to provide Columbine Label with a container so we can engineer a label that fits your packaging.
You’ve spent an enormous amount of time developing your product, choosing its’ unique packaging, and creating the design for its label, it is now time to have your label or sticker professionally manufactured. A properly engineered label that fits great on your container and works well with your application process will save you time and money.
A label that does not properly adhere to and fit your container will not only be a nightmare in your production but will also send an unprofessional message to your consumer. A perfectly fit label will enhance the overall appearance of your product.
When it comes to custom label printing, digital printing is quickly becoming the new standard for many applications. Technology in the digital arena seems to be blazing forward with lightning speed. So why is everyone talking about digital when flexo printing has been the stand-by for decades?
When we think of digital printing, we may tend to think about quality similar to a home office printer and wonder if the end product will be a suitable representation for your product. Like any technology, digital presses come in many shapes, sizes and calibers to be sure.
