Materials Used to Make Custom Labels  

The materials used to make custom labels will depend on the purpose of the label. Generally speaking, most labels are printed on either paper or vinyl. There are other special materials, such as holographic paper or glitter, which can elevate design choices. These are usually a bit pricier and tend to be used in more creative projects. 

Paper labels are cheaper and easier to print, although they may not last very long if they are exposed to water or extreme temperatures. Vinyl labels offer greater durability and waterproofing, while still providing excellent print quality. The vinyl protects the design and gives it a smooth, shiny finish. 

If you are wondering if you can make sticker labels without sticker paper, this can also be done. It tends to be more labour-intensive and complicated, but our website has a guide for you.

The Process of Making Labels

Making labels for businesses typically involves several steps and materials. The first step is to determine the size and shape of the label. Consider what your label will be placed on and how it will look on your product. Will it be visible where you want to place it? Does the size make it easy to read the text on the label? 

Once you have determined the size and shape, decide on materials. Does the label need to be weather-resistant? Will the product it’s attached to encounter significant temperature changes (unprotected labels on refrigerated or frozen items tend to bleed ink when thawing, due to the melting frost or water exposure)? Whatever your product is used for, the label will be exposed to the same elements. Vinyl labels are one of the most popular material choices can be applied both indoors and outdoors. However, labels made out of biodegradable materials or paper should only be used indoors.

Next, come up with your label design. If designing is not your strong suit, you can hire a graphic designer or use free online design tools like Canva to edit pre-designed templates. Once the design is done, choose the printing method. At Sticker it, we work with the world’s best digital printing machine. It’s the most accurate method and we employ the most advanced technology in the market to print our designs. 

Ways Businesses Can Use Custom Labels     

Custom labels can be used by businesses in a variety of ways. They are helpful in tracking inventory levels and organising products for shipping purposes. 

Labels can be used to communicate special promotions or discounts, create marketing campaigns and display business information. They can also be included with orders as a way to thank the customer and increase people’s awareness of the brand. Furthermore, customising your own unique label design allows you to encapsulate the identity of your business into something physical, which will make communicating your brand consistent. This way, you will stand out from the competition.
