At Seneca, we have an ever-growing range of tools and resources at our disposal. Take a look at just a quick sampling of all that we can do for you.
Seneca Label’s in-house services include an art and platemaking department, slitting facilities, 7-color & 4-color process printing, and hot stamping and embossing. Our large inventory of dies and materials, as well as a line of stock items, complements these areas.
Our in-house pre-press department features all the latest technology and know-how. Our pre-press specialists are highly trained in flexography and layout. Submit your art for an expert analysis, or have our artists create a design for you. Please call with any questions regarding designs suitable for flexographic label printing.
Seneca has the ability to make printing plates, in-house. This process used to take a lengthy amount of time, involve hazardous chemicals, and required the skills similar to those used when developing camera film. With our computer-to-plate technology, we’re able to quickly RIP the art file to our plate making department, digitally laser etch a plate, and have it ready to be used on the press, in 1 hour.
One of the few 2-pass operations we offer is called hot stamping. After converting a label on press, we then prepare it for the hot stamper. This process requires a metal zinc plate, as opposed to our usual photopolymer printing plates, which gets heated up and transfers different types of foil onto the already printed and die cut labels. This high-end look is commonly seen in the candy industry, flower shops, and jewelry stores.
Our in-house slitting facility is another way that we work efficiently, cost-effectively, and without waste. We purchase oversize rolls of stock paper and then slit them down to your specifications right in-house. Your custom labels are never out of our hands, ensuring that the job is done right – and saving you extra money and potential headache.
Seneca prints with the durability offered through sub-surface printing, by using the Avery Dennison TurnLock Laminating System. Products benefiting from this technology range from durable parts in the automotive industry, high wear outdoor applications, scuff resistant personal items, and anything else requiring high durability and a protected printed image.
