DIGI's original linerless labels are designed to take full advantage of the functionality of our label printers and do away with the paper liners that used to be commonplace in label printing. In addition to there being zero liner waste, label length is automatically adjusted to fit the amount of information on the label for each item, thereby minimizing label size. Linerless labels simultaneously reduce the environmental impact of liner waste and make labeling less expensive and more efficient.
Contributing to zero-waste and lower carbon footprint
DIGI's linerless labels are putting zero waste into practice by significantly reducing the consumption of paper, one of society’s invaluable resources. The length of label liner reduction in 2020 thanks to DIGI linerless labels was enough to circle the earth 13 times.* Moreover, the savings made in wood, water, and electricity needed for producing paper liners are an effective way of reducing environmental impact and carbon footprint, while at the same time lowering labeling cost.

Advantages of eliminating the paper liner
Since these labels don't use liners, they simply do not produce paper liner waste. Eliminating the liner means that just that much more label stock can be wound on a roll of given diameter, so you get more labels out of each roll. Since this halves the frequency of roll replacement, downtime for replacement is reduced accordingly, resulting in greater productivity. And not only is label replacement easier, but costs associated with label shipping and storage are reduced as well.
Linerless labels make it possible for printers to size labels automatically, a capability that was formerly very difficult. Since labels are not cut to a predetermined size, label format can be changed as needed to suit specific needs. This eliminates the need to stock labels of different sizes, simplifying the inventory control.
Helps reduce running cost
With conventional die-cut labels, label size is determined according to the PLU that contains the most printed information, resulting in empty space for PLUs containing fewer lines. DIGI labelers automatically detect and reduce space, so linerless label stock can be used to print labels without wasteful space. This helps to reduce running cost.
