Craft Brewery Bottle Labeler Qualities to Look For


One of the most common features associated with high-end label machines is the inclusion of adjustable label heads. As your product moves down the line, it will automatically brush against the rollers that apply the label. The amount of pressure they use will determine whether the adhesive on your labels sticks to the container adequately. On the other hand, too much pressure can cause labels to get crinkled, or damage your containers. Many modern machines offer a touch screen or adjustment wheel to set the machine correctly. 

If you are still experimenting with label options, you will likely want a machine that is flexible when it comes to size and materials. In reality, most bottles and cans are roughly the same size, but your labels can range from very small to full-scale wrap-around options. In addition, your labels can vary in thickness and material from synthetic plastics to recycled paper options. 

Naturally, it is important to remember that labeling is the last step in the packaging process. As such, your craft brewery bottle labeler is limited by the quality of the raw pieces you are working with. You need to ensure that your bottles are coming from a reputable source and do not have uneven surfaces which will prohibit the machine from laying down labels correctly. You also need to be sure that your labels are coming from a quality vendor. You should be checking for glue adherence and high-quality printing that does not smear when moist or tear.
