Die-cut labels apply more easily than butt-cut labels because there is a space between die cut labels on the roll. Butt-cut plastic labels require more careful adjustments.
Very thin labels can be difficult to apply, regardless of whether you’re applying by hand or with the Easy Labeler. Discuss this with your printer.
Having your labels printed in a roll can actually be cheaper than printing your own sheets of labels on an inkjet or laser printer, considering the cost of blank labels and the cost of toner or ink. When you factor in the cost of a printer—let alone all the work—there’s no comparison. An affordable labeling machine just makes good business sense.
