Precision Label Ltd. is a manufacturer of custom flexographic labels; we do not have a catalogue with prices and label types. We do, however, have a sample package that we can send you. The package contains samples of custom labels that we have produced for our clients.
How do I obtain a U.P.C. (Universal Product Code) for my product?
You have to register with the GS1 Canada to obtain a U.P.C. You can register online at GS1 Canada. You are also able to find out information about how large your U.P.C. code has to be on your label.
How long will it take to print my labels?
Lead times are highly dependent upon orders in our plant. New orders are generally shipped within 10 business days of the final artwork approval. Reorders are generally shipped within 10 business days of placement of order.
What does $10.00/M mean?
M is a term meaning per thousand. So your price would be $10.00/1,000 labels.
What is a die?
A die is a laser engraved rotary tool that cuts out the desired shape of the label.
What is a plate charge?
Your plate charge is determined by the size of your label, how many colours, and how much artwork is involved. For every colour you print, there is a plate required. In order to make a plate, your label will need to be colour separated, then a plate is made for each colour to print your label (a plate is a photopolymer material that has a series of dots on it that pick up ink and transfers it to the paper).
What is a preparation charge?
A preparation charge is for the time it takes to set up the press and to match colours and samples. Each preparation charge varies on how many colours you are printing. This is typically charged on new orders (or orders with art changes) only.
