The smaller the labels/tags on a sheet, the more labels/tags per sheet, and the longer it takes our Short Run equipment to produce each sheet. For example, if 30 tags per sheet are ordered on 100 sheets, then that is 3000 tags. If 500 tags per sheet are ordered on 100 sheets, then that is 50,000 tags. Thus we charge more for more than 30 tags per sheet.
Short Run per-sheet prices rise as the labels/tags get smaller and the number of labels per sheet increases. Also, if holes or cuts-outs are added, they are counted as additional labels/tags.
Rippedsheets.com Short Run Die Size Tolerances are excellent to 2 or 3 decimal points selected by the customer. Rippedsheets.com die-to-sheet registration varies plus/minus 1/32". Your printer has additional tolerances that may create a problem for tight registration. Rippedsheets.com does not recommend or warrant that inkjet or laser labels are compatible with tight registration art projects.
Rippedsheets.com requires gaps for circles and ovals, most of the time, to make circles and ovals lay flat on the sheet, as well as make them remove from the sheet cleanly when peeled or perforated Gaps must be a minimum of .12". If you have Microsoft Word, MS Publisher or limited label software, you cannot use more than 2 decimal points for labels and gaps. If you have a project where you do not want gaps between circles or ovals, then please call to discuss. In cases where circles are very large, over 3.33", they may be able to touch, after discussion.
