Plant Tags

Overprint plant care information onto plant and flower tags

Plant and flower tags carry valuable information, such as the species of plant, Julian date and how to care for it. The tags need to be able to withstand outdoor conditions and are mostly made from plastic, but are also sometimes made of Tyvek® or wood.

Plant & flower tag coding

Thermal inkjet (TIJ)

TIJ is a maintenance-free, cost-effective technology, and can print onto a wide variety of non-porous materials. This is due to the various grades of ink available, each suited to a particular application. This allows us to achieve perfect adhesion between the ink and the substrate, which is a must for flower tags that need to be durable and weatherproof.

Thermal transfer (TTO)

If the required print format is larger than 100mm, then a thermal transfer printer could be the preferred solution.

Coding plant tags off-line

Our standalone coding system, the RF Lite, can handle products as small as 10 x 70mm, making it an ideal solution for printing product information onto plant and flower tags. The compact system is fitted with a thermal inkjet (TIJ) printer and can print tiny but crisp text and codes at high speeds of up to 400 products/min.
