How are my labels presented?

Finishing Format Styles

There are generally 2 types of finishing styles, Die Cut or Butt Cut.

Die-Cut Labels: Labels that have a gap or space between each label (typically 3mm). There are many die shapes available including square corner, round corner, circle, rectangle, and other special shapes.


Butt Cut labels: Labels separated by a single cross-directional cut to the liner. No matrix area exists between labels. Butt cut labels are not recommended for automatic dispensing.

Finishing Formats

There are generally 3 types of finishing formats: Roll form, Sheeted, or Fan-Folded.

Roll Form: Labels finished spooled or wound on a core.

Sheeted: These are individual single sheet labels that may contain a back or top score.

Fan- Folded: Die-cut labels with a perforation across the liner are folded back and forth along the perforations creating a stack of labels.
