Printing Labels

We went to WS Packaging in San Luis Obispo today, Friday July 2, first to OK the label quality but also to see how it is done. This is their ‘off-set’ press which produces their highest quality label. This line is 65 feet long – very long. They also have two shorter lines that are not  ‘off-set’ that produce labels for different requirements, such as metallic coated labels.

I cannot explain the various stages but the line, in the case of our label, prints the label, adds color, a gold metallic bar and embeds parts of the label.
