What are "unwind directions" and how do they affect me?
Unwind direction is which way that the roll of labels unwinds from a roll. The unwind direction won't affect you unless you are using an automatic labeling machine.

At SheetLabels.com we pride ourselves on manufacturing only the highest quality materials. We also have some of the best prices that you will find, and also a quick turnaround time. We also have no minimum order like most print shops do.
What is the difference between roll labels, sheet labels, and individual cut down labels?
Some of the many benefits of printed roll labels include less waste, quicker printing, easy dispensation, and easier management of large quantities. Roll labels allow the use of automatic label dispensers and label applicators as well, and they are still easy to apply by hand.
Sheet labels have many benefits also, and one of the most beneficial is that they can be manufactured on any label material that is offered on our site. Sheet labels are perfect for laser and inkjet printers as well, which makes them easy to print right at home or in your office. One of the other benefits of sheet labels is that they can be ordered in any quantity, so you can purchase just what you need and not waste money on what you do not need.
Individual cut down labels have their own unique benefits too. For one, they are the best option for promotional stickers, giveaways, as well as specific labeling jobs for things like bottles, nametags, coffee, and many more products that need quality labels. Another benefit is that there is no additional cutting needed since you receive them already cut to the exact size needed.
What are the differences between digital printing and flexo?
Flexographic printing is a printing method that uses flexible plates that are made of rubber or plastic. Each of the plates gets rotated on a cylinder and gets coated with a quick drying ink. The material runs between the print plates and the impression roller, which puts the ink onto the material.
Digital printing uses toner which gets put onto the material which needs to be printed. The toner forms a thin layer on the surface of the material by using a heating process. If it is a laser printer it works with an electric charge and the ink sticks to the charged area. With an inkjet printer, small droplets of ink come from print heads which out the ink on the paper.
