Adhesives and finishes

Food and drink labels are available in self-adhesive paper, white or clear waterproof vinyl or metallic gold or silver vinyl in gloss and matt finishes. Which you choose would depend largely on the product and the finish you need. In general, a glossy or uncoated paper is the most cost-effective choice, but we have many other choices of stickers and labels if you’re looking for something special. Digitally printed in the CMYK colour model.

Usages 

We can incorporate variable data to your food and beverage label designs to include unique barcodes, ingredients and serving suggestions, which encourages the customer to buy your product.

 

A label can make or break a product, a quick tour of the internet will find you plenty of extreme examples, but even the slightest ill-judged colour scheme or combination can put potential customers off. Don't leave it to chance, get a short run tester pack of just 25 labels and be sure everything looks good in the flesh before you dive in.

What can be put on the nutritional information panel on food labels?

Certain data is mandatory and some is voluntary on the nutritional information panel of most prepackaged food. This data includes amounts of fat, saturates, carbohydrates, sugars, protein, salt and energy values in calories.

Why are food labels required?

In the past, food labels simply identified the contents of whatever packaging they were in but as standards improved and accuracy became expected, the quantity of the information increased to the point that today they give as much information as you could need.

How big do food labels need to be?

The regulations require the labels and therefore the expiration date, nutritional information and other mandatory information to be clear and easily read so the sizes of the label should accommodate this while bearing in mind the size of the product itself.
