Maintaining Quality Standards
Quality is at the heart of everything we do at Yerecic Label. To maintain superior standards and meet customers’ expectations, our production team strictly adheres to a comprehensive 10-point quality checklist. These key points that define our unwavering commitment to quality are explored below.
1. Customer Specifications
We meticulously adhere to customers’ specifications, and ensure labels consistently meet our established YL specifications. This includes matching item numbers, using the correct paper and plates, and conducting various tests to meet our standards.
2. Accurate Color Matching
Colors are precisely matched to customer specifications, the PMS book, and the Epson proof, guaranteeing a correct representation of the intended design’s colors.
3. Precision in Color Registration
Achieving perfection in color registration involves diligence in team member’s attentiveness in everything from press set-up and plate mounting to visual inspection set-up and editing.
4. Clean and Sharp Print
Our commitment to quality extends to the final output, where all print appears clean and sharp.
5. Impeccable Reverse Printing
Labels with back print undergo thorough scrutiny to ensure they do not contain pinholes or visible spots.
6. Sharp Screens and Process Dots
We ensure screens and process dots maintain a clean and sharp appearance, aligning precisely with the Epson proof.
7. Confirming UPC and Variable Data
Confirmation of UPC and variable data scans for each run are completed, including the comprehensive scanning of inkjet digital barcodes.
8. Scratch Resistance
All colors and varnishes undergo thorough testing to ensure they are completely dry and resistant to scratching, with additional tests to ensure smear resistance and UV varnish curing.
9. Precise Die Cutting
Our die-cutting process ensures that the die kisses the liner without any strike-through. Rigorous tests are performed on machine-applied rolls each time the die is lifted.
10. Customer-Specific Finishing
Finished rolls are slit precisely to customer specifications, trimmed accurately, and maintain a neat appearance. Colors are checked to ensure they are consistently in registration with each other and the die. Lastly, thorough checks are performed on shipping notes, ensuring the correct case tag is used.
