Labels find a huge range of applications in each and every kind of industry around the world. From big heavy metal industries, to nuclear industries and even medium and small industries, labels are used everywhere and in all sizes. However, the material used for manufacturing of labels varies according to their intended application and the industry of use. Orders for labels could range from maybe a hundred to many.
Industrial labels in Sydney also use different materials for different printers. The material used for thermal transfer printer would be different from the laser printers. For pre-printed labels the material used would be absolutely different.
