Do you wait until a certain amount of orders are queued up first and then process the orders in certain batches?
Hey Silly-V, yes I do wait until we have enough to fill a print sheet.
So with a print sheet being 6x6, we wait until a minimum of 36 stickers are ordered and then place them in the sheet.
If we have say 144 stickers to print for a day, we would batch them into 4 print runs of 36.
Thanks in advance for your help
and to note if we don't have enough to fill in the print sheet, we simply add the quantity needed to fill it and use these extras as stock.
For this kind of projects, I would envision different tools such as Callas PDFChip for Customized labels generation and a Caldera RIP for print and cut. PDFChip will let you generate production files on the fly from your portal (i.e. you can have a json or xml file passed to the app so it can read data and output your grid of customized labels as a prepress standard PDF file.
Caldera then can take that PDF file and print (cutcontours free) then cut (tahnks to cut marks included inside the file).
You can then achieve a 100% automated project here.
