Why Overlaminate Your Labels?

Did you know that overlaminating your product labels can offer a variety of finishes such as a shiny glossy look or a flat matt?

Overlamination films give your label and tag stocks extra protection and water-proofing when used on synthetic stocks and extra water resistance on paper stocks... and there's also the added benefit of giving paper stock extra strength and tear resistance. All of these finishes help to make your labels more durable and appealing.

So what kind of overlaminate would be best for your labels and tags? We have several options available, our most common three are:

  • Clear Gloss Overlaminate  - high gloss with a shiny finish
  • Clear Matt Overlaminate - matt with a satin finish
  • Soft Touch Super Matt Laminate - no reflection with a soft touch finish

Our newest over-laminating process, the Soft Touch Super Matt Laminate, is silky smooth with a velvety feel with no reflection or shine. To find out more give our us a call on 0737107000 and our experienced staff will be happy to answer all your questions to find the right overlam for your labels.


New Queensland Labelling Laws for Promotional Bottled Water

Did you now that the Queensland labelling laws for promotional bottled water have recently been updated?

If you're considering supplying labels for your promotional bottled water, there are some changes you need to know about the new Queensland Labelling Laws.

  • The label must have Product of Australia on it if it comes from Australia.
  • The label must clearly state the size and Spring Water on it.
  • The label must have the suppliers physical address on it.
  • The label must not make any health claims or benefit claims that are not supported.

If you have questions about the specification requirements for food labels we're happy to help.

Just call Justin our water bottle labelling expert on 0433118000 or head over to the Water Rating Compliance and Enforcement Website for all the details.


New Primera LX1000 Colour Printer Now Available from Label Power at special introductory pricing!

<link product id primera-lx1000-colour-label-printer>

<link product id primera-lx1000-colour-label-printer>

<link product id primera-lx1000-colour-label-printer>LX1000 is Primera's newest and most economical to operate colour label printer. It utilises the latest in high-resolution inkjet technology to print brilliant, colourful labels for your products, boxes and packaging.

The LX1000 currently ships with a free copy of Bartender Ultralite software for Windows, and includes a  starter roll and starter CMYK ink set.

  • Individual ink tanks for each colour let you replace only the colours that need replacing. You'll save time and money on every job you print.
  • Printed labels can include photos, graphics, illustrations and text - even high-resolution linear or two-dimensional bar codes. 
  • Print labels when and where you need them in just the quantities you can actually use.

Short run custom labels and personalised labels are printed fast and efficiently, helping you to increase the production of your products. You can even operate several LX1000 printers from one PC as your production volumes grow.

Whether you print just a few labels at a time or thousands, they'll be printed at speeds you probably never before thought was possible from a desktop label printer.

Order just one roll or ten rolls of blank labels in many sizes and stocks online or we can custom manufacture in any size you require.

The LX1000 Colour Printer is able to print labels that are BS5609 compliant (suitable for marine exposure for chemical drums) using special ink and label stock for that purpose.

The Primera LX1000 offers a great low cost solution to the Primera LX2000.  The Primera LX1000 uses Primera LX2000 inks and printheads so this means you can run both Primera LX1000 and Primera LX2000 label printers in the same facility and share the same inks and printheads.    Printing costs are the same between both models however the LX2000 includes Ethernet and WIFI connectivity, Apple Mac drivers and slightly higher print speed.   Both models are available from Label Power - your colour label printing experts.


We encourage all customers to visit our website to find information about our products and contact us on 07 3710 7000 or email sales@labelpower.com.au
