When the barcode first appeared on products, you would have none, or little choice about the way that it looked, it was a series of lines. It still is in many ways, but today you can customise your barcode label in a way that would have been considered not possible previously in case it did not read.
Naturally you will want your product to stand out from the rest of the competition and a label is one way that you can do it. We are all used to seeing lots of items competing on the shelves, so making your brand stand out is more important now that it may have been for many years.
A standard label will generally not withstand extremes of temperatures, both heat and cold and but we at Data Label can provide a solution for any of these. Extremes of cold are often a big problem as more products are being subjected to very low deep freeze temperatures.
The temperatures which are the main cause of concern are commercial blast freezing when the low temperatures of minus 40°C are experienced. This requires a special adhesive as the ones which are used on normal labels usually will lose their adhesion at around minus 10°C.
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.
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.
