Expedited Label Printing: Get Your Custom Labels Fast!

Expedited Label Printing: Get Your Custom Labels Fast!

Over the years we’ve answered phone calls countless times to hear these panicked words, “How quickly can you print my labels? I need them tomorrow!”

Things happen! Maybe you procrastinated or checked the wrong box off of your to-do list. Perhaps you just found out that you have a production team scheduled to label 10,000 bottles tomorrow at noon. We understand that circumstances arise, urgency kicks in, and getting your labels fast is your number one priority.

We are proud to fill the void and say that we can help! For those situations where time is spread incredibly thin, we offer Expedited Label Processing and Shipping options (and sometimes that can even mean same-day service)!

3 Options for Getting Your Custom Labels Fast

  1. Check your shipping options. If you’re just looking to shave off a day or two of waiting time, you may be able to simply upgrade your shipping method for a cheaper price. 
  2. Split your label shipment and only expedite what you really need. Frequently, we have customers call and request to send 1,000 labels Next Day Air and the remaining 9,000 labels Ground. We are always happy to make that happen!
  3. Expedited Processing. In some cases, saving one or two days in transit time just won’t cut it. Standard label processing time is 3 days, transit across the country is 5, and you needed these labels yesterday. In these circumstances, expediting your processing time is your best option.

Processing Times

Processing times are subject to change based on capacity and workload. You will receive an estimated shipping date when you place your order. The graph below shows a standard processing time based on our normal workload.

Day 1 Prepressing
Files are prepped for press! Our artwork team checks for sizing, bleed, safe zone, color modes, and Pantones while building spot-white layers and generating proofs. 

Day 2 Printing
Our knowledgeable press operators print your labels, checking meticulously for consistent color and resolution. 

Day 3 Converting, Quality Control, & Shipping
Machine operators convert one huge roll of printed material into smaller individual rolls while die-cutting labels into selected sizes and applying the requested laminates. Next, our Quality Control team checks for any noticeable errors and packs your rolls into shipping boxes with love and care.

Expedite Production Flow

Cutting 2 full days from our standard processing time is an immense undertaking for our team, but we’re always up for the challenge because we love to help our customers succeed! The cost of this super speedy processing varies based on the current workload.
