Choosing the right pressure-sensitive labeler
In this white paper from ID Technology, the task of selecting pressure-sensitive labeling technology is made simple. This descriptive guide covers topics from common methods of p-s label application to equipment selection and illustrated examples.
Pressure-Sensitive labeling, also known as self-adhesive labeling, is an efficient and cost-effective means of identifying and decorating products or packages. In every major industry, pressure-sensitive labels are applied to most types of containers at speeds matching many product or packaging lines.
