Digital Printing Allows KSPprints.com to Serve Stock Needs of Recycling Equipment Manufacturers
For years, Kewanna Screen Printing has carried stock safety decals for those label needs that are not customer specific. These standard stickers are often needed by companies throughout the industry. Traditionally stock products might have been screen-printed. Screen printing set up costs spread over a large number of prints, makes printing an individual product small. As a result the individual cost is minute. Over the years digital technology has came into the picture and changed the printing industry. Screen printing a small quantity was expensive because there is less quantity to spread the initial setup costs. However digital printing has minimal set up. Therefore digitally printing a small quantity became cost efficient.
Our most popular screen-printed stock decal (W504F)Previously we kept large numbers of our stock safety decals on the shelf. This makes sense for items we sell tens of thousands of every year, but not for those that sold much less. Vinyl naturally shrinks over time. So after years of sitting on the shelf waiting for orders, those less popular stock would shrink. In the end you are left with a smaller decal than the backing and adhesive that gums up.
New Technology = New Opportunities
Digital printing allows us to roll out new stock for other industries, because we can print it as we need it. For years, KSP has custom printed labels for the manufacturing industry to label the machinery they sell. For instance those companies who make machinery for recycling.
Introducing a webpage that contains specialty stock safety decals particularly for these companies. Because every company and every piece of equipment is unique, there will always be a need for custom labels. With this new webpage we hope to meet some of their needs with less expensive stock. You can view our complete selection of stock recycling equipment decals here.
Update - 8/28/2020
Digital printing has progressed a long way. Prices have came down on new machinery and capabilities allow for the use of UV-resistant inks. That is to say fade resistant inks only available in screen printing previously are now possible with digital printing. Rather than roll printing, newer equipment can be done on sheets. Allowing us to print some of our more complicated screen jobs with multiple screens digitally. Thus speeding up production and reducing set up costs.
