Amherst Label offers three top-quality printing technologies. With digital, flexographic and screen printing under one roof, we aim to meet all your specialty printing needs. In addition, our hybrid digital flexo press combines the advantages of both technologies in one process. Click to enlarge our chart comparing each process’s features.
Digital label printing
Digital technology allows for quicker set-ups and changeovers, which makes it the more cost-effective choice on small runs in many cases. Updating art is quicker and easier because plates don’t need to be created in order to print. Expanded gamut printing tops CMYK with Orange and Violet to allow us to print a wider spectrum of color than previously possible in digital printing. Variable Data Printing is also available, as well as printing alternating versions of a label on the same roll. Game-changing!
Our Domino N610i 7-color UV Digital Press is a technological leap forward in label printing.
Competitive pricing, especially in quantities under 5,000, plus superior quality and speedy delivery.

Digital/Hybrid label printing
