What is a die?
A die is an engraved rotary cutting tool that cuts the substrate to a desired shape. While some shapes and sizes are relatively common, custom shapes and sizes are able to be designed.
What is a plate charge?
Your plate charges are determined by the size of your label, and how many colours are necessary to create your label which is determined by the complexity of your artwork. For every colour you print, a plate is required. When printing full colour images such as photos, four colours (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan, and Black) can be combined to create the desired image. In order to make a plate, your label will need to be separated into the necessary colours, then a plate is manufactured for each colour to print your label. A plate is comprised of photopolymer materials that have a series of dots; these dots pick up ink and transfer it to the substrate.
What is a Preflight charge?
A preflight charge is added to digitally produced labels when ordering new art or making changes to existing art.
