'[OT]: Decal for enclosure, 3M Matte silver polyest'

Hi All,

We are using the 3M "Matte silver polyester Printable Label Sheet" to make
some lables to stick on the enclosures of the devices we manufacture, but we
have very low productivity yield for these labels, due to the followings:-
1. the label sheets would easily get scratches during printing (by lazer
printer), we have to make a lot before we can sort out some good quality
labels.
2. in the process to stick the lable to the enclosure, if the alignment is
out or if scratches are made on the label, the label has to be peeled out
and redo with a new one again.
3. our labels need a number of holes and now the technician only use a razor
blade to cut the holes which is time consuming, even worst, if there is
something wrong in the process, say, a scratch was made on the label, the
whole lable would spoil and needed to redo with a new one again.

Are there other decals we can use that don't have the problem above? Are
there any vendors that will make the lables for us so that we only need to
stick it to our product? But we need only a relatively small quantity so
most vendor wouldn't have interest? What material the decal is made up with
and the cost is NOT our first priority, the major concern is that the
quality of the label must be good, and they won't have the same low
productivity issues as mentioned above (if we need to process the decal
ourselves).

Thanks in advance!

John

John,

I print my own labels with 54" wide format eco solvent base printer
Roland SC540EX.
I use vinyl + laminate after lamination I do contour cut.
They are water resistant too. my question is what size is your labels
and how many do you need?

Andre

We use the TLS-2200 in both stand-alone and computer-driven modes.

Many of their labels are both CSA & UL approved for use as spec
labels suitable for indoor and outdoor use.  The last is quite a
feat, as anyone who has had to go through the many tests needed to
verify compliance can testify.

Both the machine and the consumables are fairly expensive unless you
purchase from eBay (I do).

We have used Bay Area Labels (http://www.bayarealabels.com/) like
forever, and I've always been pretty impressed with them.  I haven't
dealt with them directly, so I don't know what prices or quantity
commitments are like; they dealt with us when we were smaller, but I
think (ahem) we've caused them to get rather bigger as well...

They are certainly not the only vendor in that playing field...
