Printing Lingo: What is a Kiss Cut Label?
Kiss Cutting is one of the most popular methods for creating pressure-sensitive labels.
During the kiss-cutting process, the perimeter of each label is cut by a sharp metal die…but the cut does not penetrate the label's backing material (liner).
Even though the die makes a clean cut all the way through the peel-off portion of the label, it merely "kisses" the liner sheet. This allows single or multiple labels to remain on a liner sheet or roll until the end user is ready to remove them. In addition to convenience, the kiss-cut method offers tremendous variety as it can produce labels in virtually any shape or configuration.
