How to Store Laser Sheets for Optimal Performance

How to Store Laser Sheets for Optimal Performance

20th Nov 2020

When converting label rolls into sheeted labels there are a few best practices to keep in mind. In this article we'll go over a few tips on how best to store and handle your material.

Storage


  1. When receiving rolls of material, the rolls should be stored for 24-48 hours before being converted to laser sheets. This waiting period allows the material to acclimate to your warehouse temperature which helps it perform better on the press.
  2. While in storage, rolls of material should be kept away from direct sunlight and inside their protective wrapping. The ideal storage temperature is between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Handling


  1. After your material has been converted to laser sheets, place a chip board on top of and beneath your ream of laser sheets. This chip board protects the edges of your labels from bending while being handled.
  2. It's recommended that no more than 1000 sheets be included in a ream. The more sheets you have the more weight there is on the bottom labels which can cause the adhesive to ooze over time.
  3. When stacking cartons of labels don't stack more than 4 cases high. Once again, excess weight can damage the labels underneath.
