Printing of bag labels

Identification of bagged products

The nature of certain products or their distribution method requires them to be packed in bags or packets: spare parts, ironmongery, foodstuffs, powdered products, seeds, etc.
On a transparent bag, the label is the only space to display all of the information related to the product (description, barcodes, serial number, etc) and to convey the brand image of the company (name and logo). The visual quality offered by Thermal Transfer technology helps to provide high-quality communication.

Sometimes packed in bulk lots, bags undergo abrasion capable of damaging the label and its printed matter. With Thermal Transfer, the wide variety of available inks offers the appropriate level of resistance for the particular environment, guaranteeing the legibility and durability of the information.

inkanto ribbons for bag labels

The inkanto Wax ribbons (AWR®/AWX® range) offer an excellent price/quality ratio. The ink is particularly well suited for labels with a rough surface, while offering optimum visual quality for the printing of barcodes and alphanumeric characters.

The inkanto Wax-Resin inks (APR® range) stand out through the fineness of their print, ideal for all types of barcodes, messages and diagrams. These highly-versatile ribbons are compatible with rough paper, coated paper and synthetic media. These qualities make them suitable for retail products.

If you are looking to print directly on a packaging bag, read the dedicated page Printing on flexible packaging film.

For food applications, inkanto Thermal Transfer ribbons are approved for food contact in Europe (1935/2004/EC) and in the USA (FDA).
