Commerce Label Inc. is well on its way to achieving the quality “Gold Standard”–ISO certification! Due to the customer demands and assurances of our mission statement, CLI is working hard to achieve the ISO 9001:2008 certification and has recently completed its second Third Party Audit engaged to help meet the certifications rigid requirements. Along with the pre-audits, which helps to analyze the status of our QMS (Quality Management System), CLI has also revised its company Quality Policy manual which includes reviewing all procedures, work instructions and various form documents. CLI has also held several employee training sessions verifying employee quality understanding and revisions to the quality documents.
And last, but certainly not least, CLI has re-written its quality policy statement: “Commerce Label, Inc will maximize customer satisfaction by delivering quality products, on time, and with a concerted effort towards continuous improvement.”
All this effort toward improving our quality process has been led by CLI Quality Manager Brian Rezac. Give Brian a call anytime if you wish to discuss our quality standard and promise. Brian and the whole Commerce Label Inc. team can be reached at 763-533-2226.

Variable Data Label Printing is prevalent and finding broad application in nearly every industry and in many vertical markets including healthcare, promotional, financial services, manufacturing, industrial, consumer, automotive and others. Printing variable data with UV inkjet technology offers a cost-effective way to label and brand products, parts and components with specific data, ID, content, multiple versions, tracking information, part numbers, ingredients, UPC and barcode markings.
Digital UV inks are durable, scuff , fade resistant and include ratings for temperature, humidity, moisture and other environmental conditions which are requirements with many UL, industrial and consumer labels. Commerce Label is a certified UL printer with UV inkjet process approvals.
Variable data is often imprinted by the end user with a thermal transfer printer. We offer pre-printed and blank thermal transfer materials customized to the end user’s specifications.
Visit our digital printing and UL pages for more details about variable printing and UV inkjet technology.

CLI recently added a new plant-wide recycling program to their sustainability efforts. The program converts non-recyclable label substrates into sustainable fuel pellets that are purchased by coal fired power plants as an alternative energy source, significantly reducing waste-to-landfill. The Label waste (matrix and set up materials) is loaded into reusable containers provided by Rohn Industries, a local Twin Cities recycling transfer station. The waste material is compacted and transported to Greenwood Fuels in Green Bay Wisconsin, who processes and converts the waste in to fuel pellets.
CLI continues to seek and implement the most efficient, responsible and sustainable manufacturing practices to reduce our impact and carbon footprint on the environment.
