Printing Variable Data

Posted by on Friday, January 25th, 2013

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.

Sustainability for the Future

Posted by on Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Green and Lean
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.

CLI Supports Our Troops

Posted by on Monday, January 16th, 2012


Commerce Label donated printed labels that are being used on a product to raise money for the Serving Our Troops organization.  On November 1st, 2011 Fantom Optics offered a limited edition of “Support our Troops” lens cleaner, the bottle labels printed by Commerce Label.  A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Serving Our Troops event “St Paul to Kuwait” on February 9th, 2012.

With more than 2,300 Minnesota National Guard soldiers from the 34th Red Bull Infantry currently serving in Kuwait, Serving Our Troops and a full team of volunteers will be providing a message of thanks on February 9th and support in the form of a massive simultaneous meal to both our soldiers overseas in Kuwait and their family members back home – all linked via live video. It’s a simple thing…dinner with the family.

Commerce Label is proud to contribute and support the Serving Our Troops organization and its on going efforts.

Commerce Label Celebrates 20 Years

Posted by on Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

You may have noticed our new banner on the homepage celebrating 20 successful years in
business. We are proud of that accomplishment and appreciate all of our customers and Commerce Label Luncheonvendors who have worked with us along the way and those that have been there since the beginning.

To celebrate this milestone at Commerce Label, we held a festive fall luncheon on September 29th.   There were 125+ attendees made up of our customers and suppliers, as well as friends, and family.  The food was provided by the Glockenspiel Restaurant of St Paul, MN. The party eventually had to move inside because of the Minnesota weather taking a turn and striking with record breaking wind conditions.


While everyone enjoyed a filling lunch we were able to personally speak with our guests and thank them for the partnership over the years. Throughout the event we gave plant tours to attendees.

There was also an employee appreciation celebration kick off at 3:00pm where we gave out commemorative awards to the founders and employee that has been with CLI since the doors opened in 1991.  Thankfully the winds lightened up and we were able to head back outside to enjoy a sunny fall evening under the tent.

The past 20 years have been good to us, here’s to the next 20!

Thanks to everyone who helped us achieve this milestone!
