National Custom Printing has found its’ niche in labeling for military contracts such as: protective apparel, tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, uniforms, helmets and even shoes.
National Custom Printing is a major purchaser of the government approved fabric for military labeling called Reemay, which is a nonwoven spun-bonded polyester. Reemay meets Military Specifications DDD-L-20F and MIL-DTL-32075, as well as AATCC IVA wash test requirements and is compliant with the Berry Amendment (USC, Title 10, Section 2533a) and the Kissel Amendment (H.R. 1.)
Because we supply several large companies with Reemay roll stock and Reemay labels, National Custom Printing:
Has an inventory at all times
Provides much shorter lead times than companies that must order the Reemay from the supplier when you place your order (3-6 week lead times are typical for this material)
Does not enforce large minimum orders
Has extensive experience with labeling military contracts and promptly sends Certificates of Conformance and Berry Amendment Compliance Reports for your records in case of a government audit
Has extremely competitive pricing that allows your company to maximize profits and/or win bids
There are a couple solutions we can offer to assist you in labeling the military contract you have been awarded:
NCP can pre-print your labels for you and when they arrive, they are ready to be sewn in, either offset or thermal transfer. We are experienced in printing hundreds of thousands of labels that have varying NSN numbers, contract numbers, dates of manufacture, lot numbers, 2D barcodes, and even labels that are serialized and of course, shipped in consecutive order.
NCP can provide a thermal transfer printer that is excellent for printing thermal transfer reemay labels and offer continual technical support. With this system, you will need Thermal Transfer Reemay Roll Stock that is slit down to the width that you specify as well as the thermal transfer ribbon that has been tested and passed the applicable military wash tests.
As mentioned before, we keep a large inventory of all colors (subject to variances) of Reemay and many times we can ship your Reemay Rolls same day! If we don’t have the color you need on hand, we have found ways to reduce our lead time and therefore, you will still receive the benefit of a faster turnaround than with most companies.
