Pantone 021c

In case you did not know that is the Pantone reference for the orange colour that you will see when you spot the familiar EasyJet aeroplane. Now although it is very difficult to own a colour, although we are sure that Stelios may argue that point, we imagine that you could not paint an aeroplane that colour.

Varnished labels

Applying a coat of varnish to a label can be made to portray a variety of looks to the product, this can be a high tech look, an exclusive premium product look, or whatever image you want to portray on your products to add a unique touch to your brands. These labels can be supplied with a matt or gloss varnish, or a spot varnish to highlight a particular area or feature of the label, perhaps to draw attention to a unique product feature or maybe your logo.

A few things to consider when ordering labels

We can get a quotation to you quickly, but usually the more information we have to hand, the quicker the label pricing will be with you. It is helpful if we know what the label is to be used for, that way we can suggest the bets material, adhesive or whether it will need extra protection such as varnishing following printing.

About Labels

We have said it many times but, a label is often the most visible reminder your customers have of your company and its products. That’s why the appearance of your label is extremely important. However, the appearance alone doesn’t define the quality of a label; above all a label must serve a practical purpose for a specific application.

labelling Laws Know Them

For many years both here and in most western countries there has been laws to prevent misleading information on a product label. The legislation is meant to protect the consumer and provide education regarding the product’s contents and origins. As more and more products enter the stream of commerce, there have been increasing levels of legislation and monitoring of these items in order to prevent consumer problems.

Removable Labels

There are times when a removable label is required, for example for CD’s and DVD’s, glass wear from windows, tables, ornaments and polished steel;  these labels can be supplied  in a variety of shapes, sizes or on sheets if required. These labels are often referred to as easy peel, super peel, or previously book peel, because as their name suggests, they can be easily removed from the product after sale.  Importantly the adhesive for these labels has been specifically designed to be peeled off once applied, leaving no residue behind.

Product Label Ideas

When you are bringing a new product to market, one of the most important tools for your marketing department has to be the label. The label on the product is the first point of contact that the potential customer will see. Labels provide a wide range of information such as what your product actually is to what it is used for to how to use it. The label can of course have graphics or pictures and of course text which has all the information required by legislation and of course about the product itself. From the marketing point of view it should attract the purchaser to buy the item.

High quality labels for thermal printing

These labels are produced for a specific purpose to suit thermal transfer or thermal direct printing. We offer a number of variations of thermal transfer and thermal direct also synthetic materials which can be supplied will a range of adhesives as well as protective coating if needed. The difference between the two types of printing is that thermal transfer has a ribbon and thermal direct does not.

What is your label to be used for?

This is a question that we like to ask when a buyer asks us for a quantity of labels, either printed or plain. This is an important question because it will determine the best material that is used and could also if this should receive a coating or not, and do you require it to be proof against any specific conditions such as weather.

Printed Labels

Attractive labels draw the customer’s attention to a product or to inform or advise about a hazard that may lie ahead, behind a door, or around a corner. Having a printed and attractive label is the first step and is often more certain to attract than say a simple black and white printed item. However, it does not just stop there, if the colours are poor or not in perfect register, they not only become harder to read, but are sure to give a poor impression of the product and company.
