About Us - Label Solutions, Inc
Label Solutions Inc (video) is one of North America’s largest suppliers of regulatory compliant compressed gas cylinder labels. We also offer unique pressure-sensitive product label solutions for industrial manufacturers relating to branding, new label development, fleet signage, efficient multi-SKU printing, nutrition label & fact box formatting, and Supply Chain planning.
In addition, we offer advanced label-to-surface testing services (such as extreme heat/cold, waterproof, condensation flux, tamper-proof, and durability testing). Label Solutions is one of the few printers in the country to offer in-house regulatory compliance advisory services relating to governing bodies such as DOT, OSHA, CGA, NPGA, FDA, NFPA, UL, and NACD. This additional "safety net" helps whenever state and federal regulatory laws change or minor interpretations are made to a label. When possible, we take proactive measures to notify our customers in order to help them preplan future orders and manage their inventory whenever a compliance label needs to be updated.

Precision Custom Label Printing
When you put in an order with us, you can be confident that we will deliver exactly what you want. Our commitment to producing quality labels has led us to install our very own Vision System in our rewind department. When this system finds any unacceptable product or defects in labels, it shuts down the rewinder and shows the operator exactly what is wrong with the label. This helps ensure a quality product is being shipped to our customers.
Keeping it Green
We work to preserve our environment by offering “green” labeling procedures. Our continued investment in digital press technology greatly reduces the amount of paper and film manufacturing waste, as we are able to run labels more efficiently and cost-effectively for our customers.
From the moment you place your order until the time your shipment rolls out of our factory—we undergo an extensive quality steps process to make sure you are getting exactly what you ordered.
Here are the steps that we take:
Operators review job ticket
Operators check to make sure customer specs are in the computer
Operators check to make sure the customer approved the image
Operators run down a sample to perform quality control checks
(print-to-print register, print-to-die register, print quality, color by matching PMS book or internal color standard, die strike, liner edge, and more)
Operators call over QC to double check the checks already performed by the operators
Rewinders pull up spec sheets on the computer, along with customer-approved image
Rewinders wind labels to customer spec
(checking rewind direction, core size, number of labels on a roll and printing out barcodes to seal the finished rolls)
Before going to shipping the labels are checked one last time
(rewind direction, core size, barcode labels on the finished rolls and part numbers are correct)
Once we have “checked” off our list, we send your order to you.
Guaranteed to Last (Durable Labels)
As you can see, we undergo an intensive quality check performance on your order before it is sent to you. But we extend that quality process even more with our QUV Accelerated Weathering Testing. The QUV tester is a laboratory simulation of the damaging forces of weather. For instance, rain and dew are simulated through a condensation system; fluorescent UV lamps simulate the damaging effects of the sunlight. In a few days or weeks, the QUV can produce damage that might occur over months or years of outdoor exposure including fading, chalking, cracking, crazing, hazing, blistering, gloss loss, strength loss, and embrittlement.
