As a label printing company, do you already feel that the pressure on the cost of label printing materials is increasing? More and more label printing companies, and label prices are getting lower and lower? Customers are increasingly demanding personalized labels? Due to the homogeneity of materials and equipment, it is difficult for labels to make big breakthroughs in cost and style? Do you feel that you are tired and are earning less and less?
Why is this? Is your business printing labels the right way?
I. Status of the self-adhesive label industry chain
From the above figure, we can clearly see that in the entire self-adhesive label industry chain, the printing factory is under the double squeeze of the material coating manufacturer and the end user, resulting in a decline in profits.
How to break through?
Yidi company put forward a new concept for the production of self-adhesive labels: the vertical integration of the self-adhesive label industry, and the printing plant produces its own self-adhesive materials. That is, first print, then apply silicon and glue to make a self-adhesive label. Since then, label printing plants do not need to buy stickers: on the one hand: to save you 30% to 70% of production costs; on the other hand: easily produce high-value-added differentiated products to help you get more orders.
3. The impact of Yidi's new label production process on the formation of the label industry structure
Label printers have more profit margins:
Four, Yidi new label production process application examples:
1. Inside printed sticker
For the above-mentioned label that needs to be printed inside, the traditional method needs to peel off the self-adhesive face material and base paper, print on the coated glue surface, and then compound with the base paper. And can only print simple patterns, the area should not be too large, otherwise it will affect the adhesion of the label.
If you use Yidi's online printing and coating process, back printing becomes extremely convenient. You only need to print on the surface material, and then apply silicone oil and glue, so that the printing surface is under the adhesive surface, which does not affect the adhesiveness of the label, and can do 100% fine printing in the color printing.
(On the left is the costing of traditional production methods; on the right is the costing of Yidi's new process production. 43% of production costs have been saved!)
2. Double-sided printing stickers
On transparent packaging bottles, exquisite double-sided printed labels are increasingly used. The traditional production method of double-sided printing labels is extremely cumbersome:
Print on transparent stickers. Unveil white BOPP stickers.
Print on white PP Register front and back Die-cut labels
If you use Yidi's online printing and coating process, you can easily produce double-sided printed labels:
White BOPP double-sided printing
Silicon coated, glued, compounded
Die cut into labels
(On the left is the cost accounting of traditional production methods; on the right is the cost accounting of Yidi's new process production. 65% of production costs have been saved!)
3. Transparent self-adhesive labels that do not require lamination In order to increase brightness and water resistance, many paper self-adhesive labels use post-printing lamination. In the Yidi online printing and coating process, you only need to print on the transparent film and then coat the silicone oil glue on the machine. Make your labels more beautiful, more environmentally friendly and cost-saving without the need for lamination.
Partially-glued self-adhesive labels Partially gluing refers to applying glue only where needed for the entire label. For example, the lower part of the above food label is uncoated for the convenience of peeling, and this partial coating process is a very special technique. Yidi's online printing and coating process supports this technology, which can easily produce such labels.
V. The current status and related equipment of Yidi's new label production process market:
Based on the above-mentioned concept, Yidi's high-end coating and compounding equipment COHESIO tailor-made for label printing plants has a total installed capacity of more than 150 worldwide. There are 7 production lines in use in China and 10 at the end of the year. The three additional production lines are in Shanghai, South China and North China, respectively, for the production of beer, daily chemical, edible oil and motor oil barrel stickers. We believe that with the increase in installed capacity year by year, a new era of label production has arrived, and more environmentally friendly, flexible and economical label production methods will be accepted by more and more label manufacturers.
