Plate Charge
What is a plate?

If your have a plate charge on your custom labels quote this means that your labels have been quoted on the flexographic label press.

A plate is a rubber material that is made to put into the label printer machine. Plates are required to run this flexographic label press and print your labels, as your artwork is taken from the plate, and printed onto the label material.

If you are printing your custom labels digital, then you do not need plates because digital labels are printed with a different technology.
