Printing of cards and tags
Ensure data readability
Hang tags can be used on all types of goods when either it is not possible or desirable to stick to the label: clothing, fruit and vegetable bags and nets, sports and leisure goods, etc.
Cards and hang tags are used to provide the buyer with product information (price, size, origin, ingredients, usage, etc.) and enable it to be traced through data (barcode, serial number, date of manufacture, etc.) from production to sale supervision.
If any element of this data is misprinted or damaged, inventory management can be compromised, product sales can be disrupted, and problems can be created at checkout. Certain large retail chains impose penalties on manufacturers with poor product labelling.
Thermal transfer is a printing technology that is particularly suitable for printing tags and cards. In addition to providing excellent durability, this process can be used to print logos, codenames, barcodes and alphanumeric characters with high quality on all types of print media (paper and synthetic).
CISON's hang tags and card ribbons
It is recommended to use CISON's wax-based and wax-tree mixed-based thermal transfer ribbons.
With their excellent coverage, wax-based inks provide optimum print performance for cards with rough surfaces. This combination provides a solution for applications requiring the best price/performance ratio.
For coated paper and synthetic cards, wax-tree hybrid inks are ideal for their high print quality and excellent durability. The high fidelity of the printer enables very high fidelity pictures, logos and barcodes to be printed.
Label printing for retail products
Communicate information to users and ensure product traceability
The retail label includes all information about the product at the logistics and retail stages. Poor or damaged printing of barcodes, prices, or product descriptions can create problems in the delivery process of a product. In some cases, there are even penalties from retailers.
In addition, printing is also part of the product, and quality information printing helps to enhance the brand image.
Information printed using thermal transfer is highly visual and easily identifiable by both the naked eye and barcode scanners.
CISON Ribbon for Retail Product Labeling
The cost-effective advantage of CISON's wax-based ribbons. This ink is particularly suitable for printing on labels with rough surfaces, while providing the best visual results for printing barcodes and alphanumeric symbols.
CISON's wax-tree hybrid ribbons stand out for their outstanding print sharpness and are ideal for printing product information such as horizontal/vertical barcodes, and 2D barcodes, product charts, prices, size text, brand logos, serial numbers, and more. This range of ribbons is compatible with rough paper, coated paper and synthetic label materials.
Innovative Textile Labeling Solutions for the Textile Industry
Textile labels will experience very high levels of frustration during the life cycle of the products to which they are attached: these products include clothing, home linens and certain automotive equipment.
Textile labels contain important information about the care of the products they are sewn or affixed to, and are sometimes used for identification and traceability purposes. Such data must remain completely clear at all times, whether for manufacturing, marketing, or end users.
Thermal transfer faces constraints in textile label printing
Textile labels are made of flexible and rough materials, which makes it particularly difficult for inks to adhere to the label. Thermal transfer printing was created for label printing, regardless of their composition (paper, synthetic or textile) and there is a wide variety of inks, some of which are specifically designed to print textile labels.
In addition, this is one of the most commonly used technologies for printing textile labels, as it fulfills several needs:
Can print on smooth or rough surfaces
Suitable for small, medium and high volume printing
Ability to print variable data
Capable of single and double-sided printing
In order to meet the printing requirements of these textile labels, thermal transfer printing presses and special textile ink ribbons came into being
Throughout their life cycle, textiles and their care labels are exposed to severe external stress related to the way they are used and the intensive and repeated washing process.
Washing (water, detergent, softener, abrasion)
Drying (high temperature, abrasion)
Ironing (heat, humidity, abrasion)
With CISON Thermal Transfer Ribbon technology, care signs will break through these severe limitations and remain legible for long periods of time.
