What material to choose for a label?
How do you find the right material for labeling your product?
There are several factors to consider when choosing a material. In addition to the right "look and style", you should also ask yourself in advance a few questions about its use :
Will your products be exposed to cold temperatures, such as in a refrigerator or basement?
Will they be exposed to moisture?
Do you want your label to be glossy or matte?
Is the product packaging or product container transparent?
Do you want your label to look elegant and professional?
Are your products displayed on the shelf or in an online store?
Whatever your goal, you're sure to find the right material for your product range using the tips below.
When to choose paper labels?
Paper labels are primarily suitable for sticking them on packages of products kept in dry areas. These labels are available in many colors and shapes and, what is also important, usually cost less. Unfortunately, they have a relatively short lifespan and their resistance to moisture, chemicals, abrasion and extreme temperatures is limited. Choose from coated, matte or high-gloss versions.
White paper labels
White paper labels are the most popular form of describing the contents of a package. They serve as the most classic product marking, as well as for creating address and shipping labels. They can also be used to label food packages. In addition to white, they are also available in many other colors.
Natural brown kraft paper
Brown kraft paper is ideal for labeling handicrafts, natural products or organic foods, for example. This material immediately indicates the environmental aspect of the labeled product. Natural brown paper has a look that is very pleasing to the eye and goes very well with brown cardboard packaging. The material is 100% recyclable.
