All you need to know about labels

Labelling is a world of many possibilities. Each application requires its own combination of front material, colour, and adhesive in order to work properly. When choosing from a wide selection of labels, it can be challenging to find out which one can better suit your needs.

Before ordering your label there are a few questions you need to consider:

    Where will your label be used?
    Where will it be applied?
    How will it be applied.

Labels are built on three layers:

  • Front Material - the area where picutres, texts or other information is printed.
  • Adhesive - depending on the application it can be permanent or removable.
  • Liner - is a paper or plastic based film sheet that protects the sticky surface until its application.

Things to check before ordering your labels:

  • Purpose - Where will your label be used?
  • Material - Where will it be applied? Metal, glass, paper...
  • Adhesive - Should it be permanent or renovable?
  • Resitance - Which elements will the label be exposed to?
  • Format - Size and shape of your label.
  • Delivery - On roll (in and outsise diameter), sheet or zigzag.
  • Design - How many colours? Gloss or mat finish?
  • Application - Before or after the package is filled with contents?
