Roll labels, Sheeted, or Fan-Folded

There are three ways that product labels are typically furnished; they include sheeted labels, continuous roll labels, and continuous fan-folded labels.

But which do you choose? Roll labels, Sheeted, or Fan-Folded? Trick question: the label formulation for each specific product is unchanged regardless of label format.

  • Auto application equipment: If auto application equipment is being used, roll labels are the obvious choice and this dictates the print device
  • Preference of operators: Quite simply, if you’re utilizing the proper device and label media, there are few limitations on label format
