Color Coding Labels

November 3, 2010

We field so many calls regarding templates for our small sheeted labels. Many customers have successfully printed on the small sheeted labels like the MR-1212, however, these labels are marketed as non-machinable labels. That means they’re designed for hand printed applications, which is why we don’t supply templates for them.
They are removable labels, and many printers have tight printer path radii. This means that when the paper goes through the printer, the paper is sometimes bent around rollers that have a small diameter, and there is a chance that the labels can come off in the printer. Obviously, if you’re not handy with printers, and even if you are, this can be a major problem. If the labels come off in the printer, they can stick to the fuser or toner surfaces in laser printers, or they can get stuck on the inkjet print head. Now, we’ve never fielded a call from a customer who’s gotten a label stuck in the printer before, but it can happen. If you are going to print on the small sheeted labels, your best shot is to use a printer that has a straight through printer path.

Address Label Templates

July 29, 2010

We’re on a mission. A mission to create a large collection of address templates and we’ve got a long way to go. We already have blank address label and shipping label templates located here. But maybe you need more than blank templates.
I think labels that have a watermark, or at least have a background that is a different from the font color are the only kind you can print on. If you have solid colors on a label, you’re going to use a lot of ink, and you’re not going to be able to see the address when it prints. So check out some of our ML-3000 templates:
