Variable printing utilizes digital print technology to customize aspects of labels within the same print run. Using information from a database or spreadsheet, variable label printing allows your customers to customize data, images, colors, graphics or text. As long as the labels are the same size and shape, it is possible for each label in the print run to be unique.


With DLS, you can offer your customers a wide variety of variable label options based on their needs and budget. We utilize a fleet of digital presses including HP Indigo, Colordyne aqueous inkjet and INX UV inkjet equipment. Additionally, our hybrid press capabilities add full color digital inkjet printing capabilities to existing flexographic presses.

 Benefits of Variable Imaging for Labels


Cost Savings: One of the biggest benefits of variable printing is that we can produce multiple versions of a label faster and more cost effectively than with traditional printing. Variable printing allows us to print multiple label designs in a single press run. There is no need to change out plates or stop the press for additional setup between designs. This means your customer can save by grouping multiple versions of same-size labels into a single order—taking advantage of the lower per label cost available with higher quantities.


Your customer can also save on design time and cost since there is no need to create a separate design file for each variation.


Targeted Marketing to Increase Sales: Variable print provides a wide variety of opportunities for your customers to target their marketing and increase sales. Utilizing variable printing, your customers can personalize their labels, create labels and packaging targeted to different geographic areas or test how well different labels perform from a sales perspective.


Simplified Product Identification and Tracking: Variable printed labels make it easy for your customers to keep track of products or equipment with serialized product numbers, unique QR codes or other unique identifiers.
