Topcoats Are Not Just for People

Label converters and printers like Electronic Imaging Materials have a lot to consider as we strive for consistent label print quality. This is particularly challenging with film label products that are chemically inert and have non-porous surfaces with various levels of surface energy ranging from high surface energy (HSE) polyesters to low-surface-energy polypropylene and polyolefins.* […]

Multi-Part Labels and Face Cuts – Label Lingo

Some time down the road you may find that you have need for what we call multi-part labels sets. Requirements like this typically involve labeling similar items that must be grouped together – such as a series of laboratory tests or small parts of a finished product. You may want a large label to put […]

Materials for Direct Thermal Labels & Thermal Transfer Labels

Blank Direct Thermal & Thermal Transfer Labels Electronic Imaging Materials, Inc. offers a wide range of blank roll form labels designed to fit all makes and models of printers. These labels can be die cut to any size you need and we can provide small quantities as well as thousands of labels. If you are […]

Gaps, Repeats and Perfs – Label Lingo

There are many ways to engineer a basic label to make application easier or more functional. Label designs have to match printer specifications. Not only will you have to tell your printer the size of your label but you have to allow for the space or GAPS between labels. In the case of roll form […]

Label Sensing – Label Lingo

In order for labels to move through a label printer, the printer mechanism relies on label sensors that detect a gap, notch, slot or line between labels. In identifying the material, the mechanism then adjusts the stock intake so that print properly aligns on each label. Theses sensors work based on the concept that a […]

Stocking Up on Face Stocks

When most people think about labels, they might picture the face-stock as their first image. Rightfully so, a label’s face-stock will typically make the first impression. Based on the type of material the face-stock (substrate) is made from, it can have a smooth, matte finish or a shiny, eye-catching appearance. Much more than just for […]

Warehouse Label Size – How to Choose Your Barcode

Your desired scanning distance and the number of digits in your barcode are both key factors in determining the necessary warehouse label size. To determine what size label will be most cost effective (without compromising functionality), both metrics have to be taken into consideration. The scanning distance of your barcode is determined by its x-dimension. […]
