Beginners Guide for Customized Labels by EHG

When you’re searching for a custom label printing company in Omaha, you want to go with a partner who’s interested in saving you money wherever and whenever they can without sacrificing quality. At Epsen Hillmer Graphics, our team specializes in cut and stack labels, and in our years of experience we’ve found the best ways possible to efficiently print your labels, saving you money on material costs and time spent printing your custom labels on our press. One of the best ways we know of to trim your costs is called a combination run, and in this article we’ll explain what a combination run is and why you should go with Epsen Hillmer for your next custom consumer product labels project!

Just What is a Combination Run?

A combination run, also called a “gang run,” is when we at Epsen Hillmer Graphics print multiple custom label jobs in the same production run. By taking multiple jobs that all use similar materials, inks, and settings, and combining them into one run, we can substantially cut costs for our customers on their cut & stack labels projects.

When Can I Use a Combination Run for My Cut & Stack Labels?

Epsen Hillmer Graphics can combine your custom label printing job with another if they share similar print specifications such as material, colors, and specialty effects (like varnishes). It stands to reason, then, that your particular cut & stack labels job could more likely be combined with another if it uses popular print specifications. The more unique needs you have for your job, though, the more likely it will need to be run on its own.

What Do Combination Runs Allow Me to Do?

If yours is a smaller company and you’re having a hard time finding a custom label printing company to print your smaller run of cut & stack labels, look to Epsen Hillmer Graphics. Many companies won’t take on jobs of less than 25,000 labels, but our combination run process allows us to print small jobs that other companies won’t touch. If you find yourself falling into that zone, with 10,000 to 24,999 labels to make and no one to make them, give EHG a call! We are your source for the highest quality cut and stack labels at affordable prices.
