RRD’s linerless labels capabilities
RRD developed, commercially utilized, and patented linerless labels solutions starting in the early 1990s. Driving labeling innovation for more than 30 years, we’re committed to providing our clients a readily available solution that answers calls for both heightened productivity and sustainability.
Variably print and variably size the length of your linerless labels — optimizing label use. Print on demand with RRD labels — image barcodes, text, or a combination of both.
Manufactured with decorative brand graphics, sequentially numbered, or barcoded in the adhesive of your choice, linerless labels can be printed on one side, two sides, or manufactured with a proprietary process resulting in a two-ply design that gives you four sides of print.
Blank or printed with timing bars on the front/back — produced using premium direct thermal facestocks, RRD precisely matches your application to the right adhesive to ensure optimal performance in your printer and your application.
Opportunities for customization include: up to 4-color printing, direct thermal rolls as small as 0.44" core (ideal for mobile printers), timing bars, perforations, adhesives (repositionable and permanent).
