Modular Hot Stamp Printers for Your Packaging Line

Modular Hot Stamp Printers for Your Packaging Line


Sometimes you just need to print your own labels. 

No company wants labels with smeared letters or faded graphics on their products. Misprinted or poor quality labels are a headache for any industry, but it can be devastating when bad labels mean serious legal repercussions or public harm. This is a real fear in industries such as pharmaceuticals, where information such as lot numbers, expiration dates, and other codes need to be exact and clear. But many more businesses than pharmaceutical companies can benefit from printing labels in smaller batches. 

Having on-site printing puts more control in a company's hands, especially when they don't have to wait for outsourced labels to be shipped or end up with a surplus of useless labels with wrong information. This is where hot stamp printers shine. 

For over 40 years, hot stamp printers have been a top solution for businesses that need to swiftly print smear-proof and detailed labels in-house. Pack Leader USA's hot stamp printers provide an inline solution for any business that needs professional labels that can be quickly printed on a production line. In this post, we'll explore some of Pack Leader USA's options to help you create the labels you need. 

Labels That Last 

Hot stamp printing works by heating metal dies that press down on a ribbon to melt ink onto a surface, much like a printing press. Unlike traditional printers that require rigid surfaces for clear printing, hot stamp printing will render clear, sharp images on flexible materials such as bags or pouches. The ink dries quickly and is smear-free. Hot stamp printing has even been used on leather and paper for books and became especially popular in the 1970s for printing directly on plastics. If your business is just starting out, hot stamp printers have a lower up-front starting cost than other options.

Maximum Flexibility 

For small producers that can't afford the high cost of other printer types, a hot-stamp printer is a reliable, long-lasting solution. Businesses like coffee roasters, bakeries, or craft breweries who produce products on a smaller scale and only need to print a few hundred labels at a time will greatly benefit from this printing option. And for businesses that require speed above all else, printing on-site isn't a luxury but a necessity. For example, warehouses that need order fulfillment codes printed immediately don't have the option of waiting on labels from an outside printer.  

Printer Add-on Made Easy 

If your production facility already uses a Pack Leader USA label machine, adding a modular hot stamp printer will be a simple process. Our Allen Hot Stamp Printer and ELF Hot Stamp Printer are designed to work with our PL, PRO, and ELF Series of labelers.
