How do I switch to linerless labels?

There are some process and hardware that need to alter when switching to linerless labels.


Your current label printer won’t handle it, so you’ll need to invest in a new printer that has the capability. It should have a cutter, Linerless Roller, sensors and software that can handle linerless label stock.


You may also need to modify your process for using linerless labels so it fits with the capabilities of your new printer. If you are creating custom labels, this could involve changing how you design and print them. You may also need to change the way you apply them to products or packages — either manually or with automated equipment — depending on what type of linerless label stock you use. In some cases, additional measures such as coding or stamping may be necessary to ensure proper adhesion of the label.

Once all these steps have been taken, you should be able to switch over to using linerless labels. Doing so can provide a number of benefits, such as reducing the amount of waste generated and streamlining your production process.

The best way to ensure a successful transition is to work with GBF who can advise you on the right materials and equipment for your application. We can help you set up and optimise your printing process so that it runs smoothly with linerless labels.
