Printing plates are used by the press to create the image on the roll labels. They are usually made of metal or rubber and are able to transfer one color.
Printed labels are designed with computer graphics programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and more. Some websites even have online design tools that will allow you to design your own labels. My Own Labels has an extremely nice interface that allows for easy custom label designs. Talk to your label printer to see what they offer.
To cut the label to the right shape a die is used. If you require a special shape or size that your manufacturer does not have, a new one must be created. This cost must be paid by the customer. You can save money by using a shape that the manufacturer already has.
Prep charges are setup charges that include the cost of the printing plates and work involved in setting up the press. Some prep charges can be lowered with larger orders.
