Diversified Labeling Solutions



DLS has been a preferred B2B label supplier since 1985. Over the years, we’ve grown to be one of the largest label manufacturers in the country. We provide high-quality, custom-printed labels to distributors throughout the U.S. With more than 35 years experience, our experts provide the label expertise and manufacturing muscle you need to sell high-quality labels.

 Over 35 Years of Label Manufacturing Experience

DLS got our start in 1985, in a modest 1,550 square foot facility. Initially, DLS was a provider of high-quality, custom printed tape. Soon after opening, we expanded our products to include pressure sensitive barcode labels.


Today, DLS has grown to be one of the country’s largest trade-only label manufacturers, with over 200 team members. Our facilities are strategically located in five states across the U.S. Our team utilizes over 347,000 square feet of label production and warehouse space. With a fleet of over 50 presses including flexographic, digital, HP Indigo and hybrid equipment, we have the label manufacturing capabilities to produce label orders from 100 to 100,000,000.


Our products have expanded as well, and we now offer high-quality, custom-printed pressure sensitive labels for a wide variety of industries. All of our products, from blank, stock labels to custom-printed prime labels are produced utilizing the latest in flexographic and digital printing technologies.


In 2019, DLS became a member of the TSC Auto ID Technology family, a global leader in the AIDC barcode printer industry. DLS is the manufacturer of OEM media for both TSC and Printronix Auto ID printers.

What is a Label Converter?

A label converter processes large rolls of label material in varying sizes, sometimes weighing up to several thousands of pounds. The conversion process can vary depending on the specifics of the end label product, but it can involve cutting the large rolls down to prepare them for printing, die cuts, applying varnishes, laminates or embellishments, producing finished rolls, sheets or fanfolds. The end result is custom blank or printed labels—made to a customer’s specifications.
