HD Labels

Our story

Who are HD Labels, where have we come from and where are we going?

HD Labels is the label specific part of Handisc. Originally a disc & flash memory duplication business we’ve taken our years of disc & material printing experience and have applied this to labels. As labels have evolved and grown into a huge part of our business. We have grown to become one of the UK’s leading distributors of label printing solutions and in 2017 we won “Distributor of the Year” for Afinia Label.

Industry leaders

We aim to be different from everyone else. We don’t just box shift and we care about helping you find the right label solution for you so why not test us. Talk to one of our team and tell us what you’re trying to achieve. We run most products in house so we have experience in using them and getting the most out of them. Get in touch and find out for yourself.

“HD Labels have always provided outstanding service and support for the entire Afinia printer range. Alex and his knowledgeable team are always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction.”

Diverse solutions

We don’t just supply label printers. We have almost everything “label” covered. Some people just need a simple label printer. Others need to be able to print, cut, laminate, slit and wind their labels before needing help with applying the labels on mass. We can supply solutions for either part or the whole of your production. Let us help your business or label production grow.

For those not needing label hardware and are just in need of a few labels printing, don’t panic. We have you covered too! Check out our label printing service. We offer a short run label printing service with a very fast turnaround.

Multi-sector

Whether you’re a small farm shop or candle producer to a multi national organisation we should have something for you. The best thing about working in the label industry is that our customer base is so varied. One day we can be on a Cheese Farm and the next day an Oil Refinery. From Breweries to Chemists we have you covered. Check out our Industries page to see some examples of what we can offer.

Reliable

Although our printers are very reliable and efficient most solutions can do with servicing and eventually maintenance to keep them going and producing the best labels they can. We have you covered again with a range of servicing & support options. This comes back to not being a box shifter. We know the machines you’ll be using and our trained Engineers will be at the other end of the phone to help and advise you always. Even if your label solutions wasn’t purchased from us we can still help you. Check out our support page or talk to the team for more information.

Alex Ashur – Founder

Alex founded Handisc in 2010 & HD Labels developed from that. Seeing the potential in the label market, HD Labels as a brand has outgrown Handisc. It’s now one of the leading suppliers of label products in the UK.

Alex is an Engineer himself and prefers to be using, demonstrating & supporting the equipment rather than just selling it. Being a trained Afinia, OKI, GoDEX & Epson Engineer to name a few, gives a great background to advise on the right label solution for your requirement.
