Labels and consumables manufacturing
We’re the UK’s leading manufacturer of blank and custom-printed self-adhesive labels, tickets and tags. We’re ISO accredited and specialise in a variety of materials such as polyesters, direct thermal and thermal transfer papers, polypropylene and polyethylene, chemically treated for specific environments such as laboratories, freezers, factory floors and automotive parts. You'll find the labels you need for all purposes, and they'll be manufactured right here in Newark, England.
If you can’t find the size of label, ticket or tag you need off-the-shelf from our website, we can manufacture it in whatever size you need – we have an extensive range of cutter sizes at our production site.
We’re also a high-quality manufacturer of receipt paper rolls and can provide any size that you can't find online.
We can also supply ribbons and printable, thermal, laser, healthcare and patient wristbands that are ideal for hospitals, festivals, events, site visitors and security.
Label printing bureau service
If you don’t have the capacity, people or the equipment to print your own labels, we offer a fast, flexible and 100% dependable colour label printing bureau service.
Printing direct from the data you supply, we can produce small to large quantities of labels in short lead times and can consult on design, produce, print and despatch to meet your exact requirements.
All our labels are printed to the different standards demanded by our customers in a wide range of industries from fashion retailers to the food industry. We also have the capacity to print variable data runs such as sequentially numbered labels or sequentially barcode printed labels. We can combine sequential information with pre-printed static information to add all kinds of data at the time of print.
All barcode labels printed in our bureau are produced to the high standards you demand, and we verify printed barcodes for accuracy.
If you prefer to buy a label printer to print in-house, our expert team can provide invaluable, independent advice on the many label printers we have access to as premier partners to the industry’s leading brands.
Our flexographic print runs range from 5,000 to 50 million labels. We print on up to 70 different types of specialist label materials in any size that our customers request. We have 10 printing presses and can print up to 250 metres of labels every minute from a single press. With all 10 presses in operation we can output over 360,000 linear metres of materials in a single day. That’s enough paper in a single year to reach the moon!
To support our customers during their seasonal peaks, we can print, pack and ship high volumes of blank and printed labels. For labels ordered from stock before 5pm, we deliver 100% of orders by the next working day.
