For decades web presses have been used to manufacture and print labels for a wide array of applications. Every type of packaging requires labels for branding, instructions, nutritional facts and more. Labels for Food & Beverage, Medical, Cosmetics & Healthcare, Household products and Private Branding are manufactured using many techniques. UV inks are applied one layer at a time and cured with UV lamps.
