Samples & Testing

The proof is in the print

We offer a unique print sample service,  that allows you the chance to gain first-hand experience with our innovative technologies and systems, on your very own products and packaging!

Feeding Systems

We have a complete range of feeding systems to suit a wide variety of packaging types, production volumes & budgets, so you might have a difficult time choosing one system over another for your application/s. Because all our systems are built here in the UK by us, we can feed and print your samples for you, and send you back your results with a video to prove how easy it was, too!

Just fill out the form at the bottom of this page and send your products or packaging in the post.

Thermal Inkjet Printing

Thermal inkjet technology (TIJ) is a relatively new way to code your products and packaging, at least compared to the considerably older continuous inkjet (CIJ) and thermal transfer (TT) printers. But this doesn’t mean that it’s not ready for your industrial needs, however strenuous they might be. The ink formulations we can supply for our TIJ printers adhere excellently to a broad range of substrates including cards, plastics, glass and metals. But we understand that you may want to see this for yourself.

Not only can we print on your very own sample products and packaging, but we will send you back your high-resolution results so that you know there’s no photo-editing magic going on. What’s stopping you, send us your samples today!

Thermal Transfer Printing

Rotech supply a complete range of black and coloured thermal transfer ribbons, made in the UK, for all desktop and in-line (TTO) coders. The ribbons suit over 95% of all applications, so we’re sure we have one for your application. We provide 10 unique grades, with varying formulations of wax and resin inks, so finding the most cost-effective ribbon that still has the adhesion and resistance properties that your application requires, can be difficult.

Luckily, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee for any ribbon purchase made online via our shop. If you’re not 100% satisfied, call us, and we’ll organise delivery back to us in exchange for a refund!

If you really don’t know what ribbon is for you, fill out the form below and send your packaging in the post, we will return your post with the printed samples and a recommendation of exactly which ribbon works best for your requirements.

Large Area Printing

Large area printing is a great cost-saving, environmentally friendly, low maintenance solution to replace the application of labels to outercases, boxes and other products & packaging types. Because it prints over a much larger area than over technologies, it’s assumed that the resolution or print density must be considerably lower. This is why we have our very own demonstration system ready to print samples at short notice.

Our large area systems print at up to 300 dpi resolution and is perfectly legible by humans or cameras on even darker substrates such as cardboard.

Why not send us in your samples so we can prove how these systems really can print barcodes, text, logos and other variable data, all directly on the outercase or other substrate – completely removing the need for costly labels.

Just fill out the form at the bottom of this page and send your products or packaging in the post.
