Premier Labels Boost Capabilities with New Digital Printing Machines

At Premier Labels, we have always been committed to delivering the highest quality labels to our customers, and our recent investment will help us to take our services to the next level.

Our latest upgrade to a new state-of-the-art Digital label printing machine, and our high spec finishing line, significantly boosts the efficiency, speed and economies of our label production. 

In this blog, we will explore the capabilities of our new digital printing machines and how they will benefit our customers.

What are the capabilities of our new digital printing machines?

Premier Labels have purchased two types of machinery. The first is the HP Indigo 6K digital label printing press. The second is the impressive Digicon Series 3. Here are their innovative capabilities:

HP 6K Indigo Digital Press:

● The splice detection feature identifies media splices and skips them while ensuring uninterrupted printing.
● An automatic alert agent, equipped with a unique algorithm, highlights any inconsistencies between the digital file and print.
● The Spot Master feature ensures precise colour matching and repetition through inline spot calibration.
● The ink cabinet allows us to achieve up to 97% of the Pantone gamut using up to 7 colour stations, providing a wide range of speciality inks for printing.
● The HP Indigo LEP technology ensures reliable printing quality with consistent colour matching.
● The inks used are compostable helping to protect the environment and achieve sustainability goals

Digicon Series 3:

● The Big Foot module with a 50-ton capacity for hot foil and embossing. It has multiple foil-feeding options across and along the web, which allows us to create unique effects and finishes.
● Second foil/embossing unit gives us the flexibility to hot foil additional colours, as well as emboss/deboss even more intricate, detailed, designs.
● The cap sensing and knife setting feature saves time during setup and changeovers.
● The addition of flatbed screen printing modules enables us to enhance the value of prints with relief varnishes or vibrant screen inks.
● The Flexo units make adding flood or spot varnishes (including HMRC logo), spot colours (including metallics) an absolute “walk in the park”.
● The over laminating unit, means we can offer your labels the added protection of a clear matt or gloss film to protect the print. Over-laminating offers significantly higher print protection than a varnish and is a must for high abrasion environments.
● Cold foiling is suitable for smooth substrates, with the advantage of cheaper tooling costs.

While all this jargon has got the Premier Labels team excited, what does it actually mean for our customers? Here are the 4 key benefits of our latest investments.

Increased in-house capabilities

Not many companies can offer label design as well as the full range of label manufacturing services in-house, but it’s always been our goal to make the process as efficient as possible.

Our new digital printing machines allow us to take control and test for quality at every stage of the process.

Boost flexibility and speed of production

The innovative features of both machines allow us to provide flexible design & printing options, faster production and responsive lead times.

High-quality results

The range of modules on both pieces of machinery gives us access to endless creative design options, as well as unique colour-matching technology to produce even more high-quality results.


With all our different embellishment modules, we can create some truly enhanced label designs.
