General Purpose

Unique process of printing swing tags for the retail industry marketed by Trader, plus all barcodes lasered directly onto tags thereby eliminating the time & cost of having to apply a barcode label separately, as was done traditionally full colour graphics on both sides of the tag. Laser hardware & software seamlessly laser print small and large volumes in combination

Strong growth is being experienced in the production of swing tags – of which Ferroprint produces a staggering 600-million a year. 
The marketing of swing tags falls to a firm of consultants called TraderPlus.  Key customers include Mr Price and Pep stores to mention just two.

In earlier years, swing tags were printed sheet-fed offset litho by commercial printers, but Ferroprint and TradePlus changed  this scenario by printing swing tags roll-to-roll on a Nilpeter flexo press.

With sheet-fed litho printing, there were as many as nine separate operations. It used to be a long, laborious process.  However, by printing them roll-to-roll, we manage all processes in-line.

Another development at Ferroprint – the elimination of the need for barcoded self-adhesive labels on the reverse of swing tags. This is because Ferroprint has the capacity to print variable data including barcodes and/or sequential numbering, thanks to its investment in Nipson laser printers.
