Plant and flower tags carry important information, like the species of plant and how to care for it. The tags need to be able to withstand outdoor conditions and are most commonly made out of plastic, but are also sometimes made of Tyvek® or wood.
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.
If the required print format is larger than 100mm, then a thermal transfer printer could be the prefered solution.
Our RF Lite feeding system is ideal for feeding and coding plant and flower tags. Fitted with a TIJ printer, the compact coder is capable of printing consistently and quickly, with a top speed of 60m/min. The RF Lite is well suited for coding smaller products, with a minimum required product dimension of 10x70mm, making it ideal for handling small plant and flower tags.
