The Afinia DLF-220S uses a plotter to cut custom label shapes

With an Afinia color label printer, print shops of any size can change low-volume label orders into a high-margin revenue stream.

Custom Label Printing Options for Print Shops

Custom label requests are a challenge for many print shops. From low-volume orders to rush jobs, it’s hard to fulfill those needs when you outsource label printing to another shop or converter. This is because ordering from a converter comes with shipping delays, lack of quality control and thin margins.

The other option is the print the labels yourself, which is usually the more profitable choice. Many print shops choose to print labels on a laser printer using label sheets.  While this method allows you to use the equipment you already have, it sacrifices flexibility. You are limited to using the sizes you can find from sheet label suppliers, and printing labels smaller than 2 inches in nearly impossible with this method.

Print service providers are using digital label printing and finishing to make 35-45% or more in profit on label orders. Return on investment is fast and the benefits are many.
