As soon as you see the word flammable you know it’s about to get very serious… Seriously important that you have the correct labels for your shipment!
If you’re shipping anything that includes materials such as fuels, paints, solvents and alcohols you must ensure that you have a flammable liquid 3 label placed clearly on your shipment. This gives the person who’s handling the goods a clear indication of what’s inside, ensuring that they treat it with caution. Safety is key when handling dangerous goods so make sure you label everything up correctly!
All our hazard labels are printed in house on our flexographic printing machine. Flexographic printing is terrific, especially for long label runs which is extremely necessary when printing hazard diamonds because we print millions monthly. We use a MarkAndyP3 flexographic press which is one of the most advanced, narrow webbed presses available today.
Advantages for flexographic printing:
- Low cost plate charges
- Suitable for short, medium but most importantly, long runs
- Over 2,000 cutters in stock (for bespoke if necessary)
- High quality labels
- Up to 7 spot colours
- Specialist varnishes
- Sheeting and under die cutting
EVERYTHING at Limpet is printed in house meaning you don’t get all the pesky additional prices from people who buy and then sell on… we don’t work that way! We’re very proud of the fact that we have been manufacturing for more than 25 years and we believe that reflects in our work. Be it, bespoke or off the shelf items – we will always endeavour to create the best quality labels and match it with a very competitive price.
