Print techniques or embellishments that SATO New Zealand commonly use are;
  • Multi coloured printing: Our presses allow the use of multicolours to meet the design of the label. This can be a combined use of basic CYMK with PMS special colours and metallic inks.
  • Surface Protection: Labels can be protected from damage by using either matt or glossvarnish or a clear film. A combination of these can be applied to a label.
  • Face Stocks: We have a multitude of face stocks available to meet your requirements. From direct thermal, thermal transfer, matt, gloss, semi-gloss, polypropylene, synthetics, metallised, you’ll be sure we have a face stock for almost every job.
  • Foiling: To further enhance a label, cold foil can be applied.
  • Die Cutting: Labels can be cut to most shapes. The criteria for this, is how the label is applied. Sharp corners are usually not permitted due to problems with stripping the waste off at high speed.
  • Adhesive Kill: Parts of the adhesive can be “killed” so that the adhesive will not stick in those areas.

SATO New Zealand has outstanding competencies when it comes to managing variable data and can provide overprinting services for a number of industries. Overprinting on retail tags forestry tags and courier labels are just a few of our specialities.

We make it easy for you to get the labels you need so you can focus on your core business.

With high standards of quality control and using the most recent technology advances, the Barcode Bureau produces labels and tags cost effectively, and often more efficiently than the production done by customers themselves.

All completed work goes through a Quality Assurance process, which identifies bar code labels as reading correctly. As an EAN Certified organization, this Quality Assurance process is subject to an annual audit by GS1. Every production run that includes barcode data is verified to guarantee read rates and consistent quality. This is information is then saved against the order for future reference. SATO’s own internal expertise relating to business improvements also ensures that our processes are regularly assessed and enhanced in line with new technology and production methods.
