Printing SMALL Text?

Post by stitch-up » Mon Jan 29, 2018 2:11 pm

Hello all from a very wet & windy Bridgend!!

A customer who I do quite a bit of work for has asked me to produce 500 labels, BUT, they're very small at just 13.5mm wide and 8.5mm high!

The problem might be that on this label there'll be 3 lines of text which of course will be very small.

This is a picture of the label:

As you can see, the lettering is very small, perhaps less than 2mm in height!

Is there some sort of metalized silver vinyl - (I believe Gerber call it Label Stock) - used for producing security labels?

Is the BN20 capable of printing such small text?

Thanks

John

Well, I answered my question by printing the labels and can confirm the BN-20 can easily print this label and can print it smaller too :)

True. With a well groomed printhead it's no problem at all.
