When ordering labels, people often choose to pre-print all the graphically and color-wise rich information that they couldn’t otherwise print on their printers, or that would be too expensive to print at home/in the office. This leaves the users a less challenging task of over-printing the label with variable information, usually in black lettering. Thermal or digital computer printers are excellent for the job.
Always have in mind that the information on pre-printed labels is static. The problem with fully pre-printed labels is the fact that you end up with a certain amount of labels that you can’t change if the information about your product or your company changes. In those cases the manufacturers end up throwing away the surplus of now unusable labels, wasting a lot of money. That is why the quantity of fully pre-printed labels needs to be carefully considered.
