    Anyone else focus on labels for packaging? Mylar bags, tubes, jars, etc? - Been playing with a few different media types but also looking for alternative media suppliers. Also what is your application process like? All manual or machines for automation? Looking to just get some convo going around this semi-niche.

    We print a lot of small labels for packaging and such. Usually just go with a cheap short term vinyl like Orajet 3641 or Arlon 510 as they're probably getting thrown out after a few months anyway. We print in batches, plot and then put them on a roll a few labels wide. I'd like to be perf cutting into strips but our shop guys seem to be opposed. Very manual process.

    We kiss cut on the colex table or graphtec then either single at same time or strip them out depending on how many we do.
