Tagging seed bags can be a long and tedious process. With all the labeling requirements, instructions, and branding required, there must be a better way to do this. Printing on slow laser printers, or dot matrix equipment is a thing of the past and is probably the most in-efficient way to make seed bag tags. Well, there is an answer to this unproductive way of labeling.
Seed Bag Tags
Today speed and low cost drive everything. Introducing high speed seed bag tag duplication and printing to your environment can save lots of dollars and eliminate waste. Take a look at this video attached to this post. This video shows two different processes going on. One is the process of high speed duplication. If your tags are all outlined in a database and your requirement is for thousands of tags for the same product, your files can be called up at once and duplicated onto tags in minutes. The speed of printing with this high speed duplicator allows production to focus on other duties instead of coordinating the tags and managing this process for the proper labeling.
The next process shown is a print on demand. If the file is for many different tags, this thermal transfer printer setup with a tag cutter on the end allows for continuous rolls of tag material to run through the printer, which cuts material costs, while allowing tags to be cut to different sizes on demand. Driven by commands, the operator can totally control the tag printing operation by printing just one tag, custom making a few tags for samples, or running thousands of tags for a large job that must ship today. This thermal transfer tag printing solution is very flexible and provides a durable tag by printing with thermal transfer ribbon.
Depending on the tagging requirements, both of these options allow for tag materials including polyester, polypropylene, paper, cardboard tag stock, Tyvek® tag material, and many others. Depending on which material is used in the thermal transfer option above, will dictate which barcode ribbon is to be used. Each material has a different requirement for ribbon based on the durability of the image needed.
The most durable tag solution would be to use a Polyester tag or Tyvek® tag material with a full resin barcode ribbon. This solution will require the printer head settings to be higher and the printer speed to be reduced to make a solid lasting image on the tag. The final product will be water proof, chemical resistant, and smudge proof for years.
A bit less durable, but also less costly solution would be to use a Read More
