Mistakes happen, but don't panic - Handy Labels have you covered! Let us print new labels for you that are of a similar style and colour, and nobody will ever know you made a mistake in the first place. Correction stickers are designed entirely around your needs so let us know what you require and our team will be happy to help!

Available in a huge range of sizes and shapes, our correction labels will completely cover any unwanted elements underneath the applied label, ensuring the highest quality while being perfect for all re-labelling tasks be they on paper or vinyl.

Adhesives and finishes for correction labels

Our correction labels are available in a choice of either a glossy waterproof vinyl or an uncoated paper with permanent adhesive and a grey opaque backing. All of our correction sticky labels are printed digitally in high quality CMYK inks.

Uses for opaque block-out labels

Sticky correction labels are great when manufacturers, retailers and importers need a way to over-label existing information such as product descriptions, barcodes, foreign languages and ingredients.

Correction labels FAQs

What are correction stickers?

If a mistake is made on any form of printed media and the mistake is only discovered when it's too late then a correction sticker can save the day by overlaying the problem area with the correct information.

What are they made of?

They can be made of paper or vinyl, they come with a white topcoat and dark underside as standard so the design behind is blocked out so there is no confusion for the customer or whoever is reading it.

What is a correction sticker used for?

If information changes or is printed in error, a sticker to obscure the old and cover it with the new. Simply measure the dimensions of the area in question and print the new data for application.

How much are they?

Small paper ones bought in sufficient numbers can cost as little as 1/2 pence each. This is a far more cost-effective solution compared to reprinting the order again.

How do you apply correction stickers?

When applying corrective labels, it's important to get any text lined up or natural lines in the design to follow without sticking out and drawing attention.
