why choose printed film?

features

continuous or scatter print

Depending on the ultimate requirements of your products, you have the choice of a 'continuous' or 'discontinuous' design. Continuous print, also known as 'scatter print' is a simple pattern that repeats over and over without any break in the design. Continuous print is effective for simple designs when it would not be problematic if a part of the design was positioned on an edge and was cut off during sealing. This may occur because the shrink wrapping machine will release the sealing jaw after each pack regardless of what point is reached in the design. Typically this style of printed film is used for company names or logos. By contrast, discontinuous or 'Print register' options are designed for more complex requirements where the plastic film acts as a replacement for a label. A print register design could include multiple features such as logos, bar codes, ingredients lists and a ‘window’ of clear film to display sections of the inside product. In these applications, the wrapping machinery is looking for a point on the design called the 'eye spot', a particular mark at the very end of each complete design on the printed film. When detected, this signals a break in the design, to which the machine responds by sealing the pack. The continuous print method guarantees that each wrapped pack displays the complete printed design that's required. At YPS we can accommodate both types of printed designs.
