We produce and supply a wide range of white and colour-wash plain labels for both direct thermal or thermal transfer applications and are available in either roll, sheet or fanfold format. The options are from general-purpose paper through to high performance synthetic materials for the most demanding applications.  Face materials available include coated or un-coated, with various material finishes including vellum, semi-gloss, silk, full gloss, data, litho & matt coated.
