As the buyer of labels you have been asked to order some labels for a new or existing product and will have been given some idea what the label needs to do. With this in mind we at Data Label will use our years of expertise and help you make the final choice.
Should the need arise, and it often does, when a label has to withstand the rigours of the weather, or perhaps subject to being in contact with water, then a label that is resistant to these conditions will be needed.
We have a number of options that we can offer polyester, polypropylene, or vinyl, dependent upon the degree of water contact that the product will be subjected to. For example if you require a label which is full waterproof, resistance to oils, alcohol and dirty conditions, then we suggest the use of polypropylene. Normally the finish is matt and can be printed in full colour.
There are some circumstances when a label needs to be easily removed from an item after it has been sold, it could be a present for example and the price has to be removed. More often than not though, these labels are used on items such as CD covers or books, if fact in the trade they are referred to as Book Peel labels.
There is a very well known saying that goes along the lines of “you get what you pay for” and that would to some degree apply to barcodes as well. We are now used to seeing barcodes every time that we shop, they are the familiar thick and thin parallel lines which have a display of numbers beneath them.
A window sticker is an ideal medium for launching a new product or for advertising a special event that it to take place by a club or society. Window stickers are a cost effective way to promote a product, are highly visible and can be personalised to suit your individual requirements, in small to medium sized runs.
Not all labels need to be solvent resistant, but there are occasions when they do. Household items that are often stored under the kitchen sink for example, these could be everyday items such as cleaners or disinfectants, the secret to labelling as we know is to give the product a high profile when on the shelf, but it also needs to be clear when at the home too.
We manufacture labels for just about every application, the right material for the label, the right print, and the best adhesive for the environment your label will be used in. We can supply fully supply bespoke plain and printed labels on rolls and A4 Sheets, simple plain labels, to full colour printed of a specialist nature, however you want them.
QR codes are now everywhere we look, magazines, products, airlines are also slowly looking at bringing them into everyday use. So if you have been looking at these little squares of dots and might be considering using them in your marketing strategy, size is an important thing to take into account.
You have made a quality product and it does not make any sense to put a poor label on the product which will only suggest to the potential buyer that the product is of poor quality also. What is need is a high quality bespoke label that through high quality printing conveys to the customer that you care about product and how it is displayed.
We are all today aware of barcodes and many of their uses, and although it first appeared in America 62 years ago, although it took a little while for it to become established there, but by 1979 a visitor to the United States from the UK would have wondered how the supermarkets and pharmacies managed to get all the items into the cash register in such a short space of time, the barcode was virtually unheard of here then.
