We are John Carroll Associates.
Specialist manufacturers and printers of self adhesive labels.

We produce self adhesive labels, either from your own design or where required we may assist in producing a design to suit your product.

Options within the design and manufacturing aspects include full colour process labels, multiple spot colours right through to plain blank labels for customers to print themselves. We also have the capability to print onto the reverse (adhesive) side of a label, and to laminate or varnish the top surface of a label to protect the printed side of the label. At the heart of our label printing processes and output is our commitment to quality. Click here to read more about our quality assurance and IS09001 accreditation.

Different label printing processes

Labels printed per hour

Digital Printing

Our Edale and Daco machines are used for digital post press operations and also for blank label production. We have lately purchased digital label printing equipment, which means that for short run or variable data requirements, we can now produce labels without the need for printing plates, thus reducing the cost for this type of order.

Thermal Printing

With advanced labeling capabilities, we can thermal print labels fully customisable to your requirements.

Thermal transfer printing may be the best option for short runs particularly for simple bar code labels. Some of these labels may also be pre-printed with customer specific information, and then still overprinted within a customer’s manufacturing facility.

Hot Foil Printing

Our Hot Foil presses can produce a truly stunning effect on a label which no other process can achieve. The process is a really great way to show that your products have that real edge that sets them apart from the rest.

John Carroll Associates have produced foil labels since the early 1980’s, so we can truly say that we possess real experience in this method of production.

Hot Foil can be added to flexographic and digital labels to give the ultimate eye catching finish to your labels, making them a truly exotic and luxurious label solution.
