Lake Forest's Label Printing FAQs

What is your process for handling new label orders?

All of our new Lake Forest clients are assigned a dedicated West Coast Labels account executive and receive expert advice on their label order. Before providing a free and accurate quote, we determine what printing method and materials will help you achieve your marketing goals and give you the best return on your investment. Once your order is placed and confirmed, we process your artwork through our comprehensive preflight process. Then we generate laser proofs or digital matchprints for your review and changes. Once your proofs are approved, we put it into our production schedule. When we run your job, you can count on us to run samples first in order to inspect color matching, registration, etc. Then, as we run your job, we will supervise the quality of your labels throughout. Once complete, we inspect your labels, rewind them, and pack them. Finally, we confirm your preferred delivery method and deliver your labels.

What's the difference between digital and flexographic printing?

Digital printing involves direct digital output, which means transferring your approved artwork directly to the press using direct-to-plate technology. This allows for an incredible degree of formatting freedom and makes it ideal for short printing runs. Flexographic (or flexo) printing can employ UV inks or the more common 4-color process, but generally requires that a plate be created for each color application. While requiring a more involved start-up process, it offers our Lake Forest clients the ability to print on a wide variety of substrates, offers a fast turnaround time, produces labels of extremely high quality, and provides a fast and cost-efficient method for producing large quantities of labels. To determine which printing method is best for your labels, call and speak with one of our label printing experts today.

Do you manufacture eco-friendly labels?

Yes, we do! We can manufacture eco-friendly labels with Fasson's Tree-Free face stock (made from a combination of sugar cane, cotton liners and bamboo pulp) or 2 Mil Clear EarthFirst PLA (a polylactic/corn-based) film stock.

What Our Clients Say:

Laclede has been doing business with West Coast Labels for over 11 years. The staff at West Coast Labels has always been there to make sure that all of our orders were shipped on time. West Coast Labels has come through for us on many occasions and i can depend on them to take care of all of our needs. I greatly appreciate the service West Coast Labels has to offer.

There are hundreds of printing companies out there but we've been a WCL customer for 10 years. I appreciate the assistance, concern and that 'extra-something' to workin with me even though I am not a 'biggee' customer. Pennies saved on one job cannot buy the long-term benefits . . .
