Four ways perforated labels can increase efficiency

Easy-tear backing paper is an economical and efficient solution that offers the flexibility to store and use labels in multiple ways. Die cutting is performed to make this type of label by creating perforations on the backing liner after the printing process. The matrix waste material is removed all in one press pass.

Perforated labels can increase efficiency and enrich the value of supply chains in the following four ways:

  1. Labels on easy-tear backing paper are easier and tidier to pull apart. This is beneficial when printing batchers of one type of label, as they can be efficiency grouped together. Additionally, if employees are working in multiple packing stations, labels can be easily separated from the roll without the use of scissors or a knife and used in different locations.
  2. This type of label makes it easier to tear off labels directly from a printer, especially printers with blunt tear bars, preventing exposed adhesive from catching on the platen roller and having labels wrap around it.
  3. Labels on easy-tear backing paper provide the flexibility to separate and use them in multiple ways. These labels can be used as tags if you don’t want to stick them onto anything, as the backing paper is still attached. This is a cost-efficient way to use the product in multiple ways and saves changing back and forth from labels to tags.
  4. Perforated label rolls provide the flexibility to easily fold and store labels into flat stacks rather than rolls after printing, eliminating the risk of your labels getting crushed or damaged.
