So Many Moving Parts...
There are many parts to efficient packaging and labeling for the Cannabis industry. Here, I will break this into sections to better explain the hows and whys.
Finding the Correct Labels for your Application
It is very important that you choose the correct label material and adhesive for your products. Often times you are required to over label with testing information from a specific batch of product. This requires getting the correct adhesive. Another important element of product labeling is sometimes the label needs to be peeled back to see warning information. It is very important that the labels have the correct adhesive in order to perform this task. Regardless of your unique needs, we're here to help!
Automating Batch Data from Your Testing Facility
Most companies in this space receive the testing data of their harvest from the lab and then rekey that data into a labeling program like BarTender to print their labels. This is very time-consuming and error prone. Any time your people have to rekey data, it opens you up to mislabeling and mistakes. We work with a software integrator who can set you up to read your lab data files and put that data directly onto your labels. We can work with you to semi-automate the process or get you to a fully seamless automated label printing process.
The Cannabis industry has a wide variety of packaging containers for their products. One new type of packaging is called flexible packaging. The containers are made from film. This allows you to put your product into bags or pouches. These bags even come with the CR zipper lock. The beauty of this technology is that it utilizes digital printing. Digital printing offers high-quality, vibrant colors along with variable data to promote your products. As a result, flexible packaging is becoming a popular solution. Call 888.972.5234 or Email Us for more information and samples of our work.
Printing of Your Labels
Since your labels need to be printed with variable supplied data when your products are packaged, most people opt for a Zebra thermal transfer printer. They print in rolls and then hand-apply the labels to their products. This is a very time-consuming and a physically tiring process.
Another option is to choose a color printer from Epson. By using an inkjet color label printer, your possibilities are endless. You can print on-demand graphics and text in any color. The sky is the limit and the quality is absolutely amazing. It will blow you away. Call 888.972.5234 or Email Us for samples.
Implementing an Automatic Label Applicator
This is the most exciting part of our business, getting to automate a very tedious process that will save you time and money. We have designed six new machines that are widely accepted in industry, but are targeted to the Cannabis industry. These semi-automated label applicators are for startups with low to medium size volumes. We also have high-end fully automated systems, but we see most of the growth in this market with the semi-automated label applicators. See our videos below to watch automatic label applicators in action.
