Inkjet printing falls under the umbrella of digital printing. For smaller quantities, especially with many copy changes, this is the printing process of choice. The substrate to be printed requires a special receptive coatings to allow the dye or pigment to anchor. There are several printer models available that use dye based and pigment based systems. The substrate is more expensive than the ones used for flexographic printing, however, it eliminates plate costs and set up costs that compensate for the higher material cost. There is an inflexion point based on volume where the decision to go one way or the other is clear. Over the past two decades, constant advancement in the chemistry and hardware has improved quality that rivals with the more expensive toner cartridge based printers.

Your label need will direct you to selecting the right system and printer model. Here are the highlights of the two available systems for desktop printers.
Dye based inks are less expensive and can produce vibrant print colors. The dyes get absorbed in the fiber of the face sheet and are the preferred choice for prime labels.
Pigment based inks offer more resilience. The ink droplets fuse into the fiber construction of the material, delivering a more durable label. Applications for Compliance labeling, such as GHS and BS 5609, would be a perfect example for selecting this system.
