Badger Tag & Label—Packaging Tags and Labels
New products are being brought to market with greater frequency and compressed timelines. Badger Tag & Label is utilizing its six-color UV digital printing press and plotter cutter to cost-effectively produce low and medium volume labels to address this new market demand. This means a company can test run a packaging tag or label using photo-quality printing and intricate die cuts without committing to the cost of having a die made. For established products, when larger tag and label packaging print runs are required, Badger uses flexo and letterpress methods. The versatility to use the best printing option and still allow for imprinting of variable data by the customer addresses the ever-changing packaging needs of today’s market.

Add all label versions together to find your total print quantity. Repacorp produces labels on its digital presses with laser cutting (no plates or tooling charges). Repacorp now has five digital presses—three are located in its Ohio facility, one is located in its Wisconsin facility and one in its Arizona facility.
