The way your labels appear is extremely important. Labels are often the most recognizable part of your product’s brand or image and in addition to being practical, they must be easily identifiable. Some of the most common settings for your labels are:

  • Product identificationvitamin labels

  • Bar codes
  • Work-in-process
  • Inventory control
  • Pricing
  • Promotion


Types of Label Materials:

Labels must adhere to a variety of surfaces: corrugated, glass, plastic, metal, fiber drums and more so it’s important to get the type of label material right. Here are the most common types of label material:
