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.
