Create Quality Control Labels Online

Quality control labels, also known as inspection stickers or customised pat test stickers, instil confidence and professionalism within the workplace. Quality control labels have many uses, but some of their main goals are to help you account for inventory and ensure elements of your workflow.

Your business must comply with current legislation. Once you know what quality control labels you require, we offer a customisable order process. You can choose whether to have your labels branded or anonymous. There are two routes you can go down when it comes to inspection stickers or QC labels. You can have them anonymous where you have the standard information like pat test date, inspectors initials, date the next inspection is due etc. Or you can opt to have them branded.

Branding your quality control labels puts details like your company name and logo in front of potential customers. Most businesses have multiple portable appliances and occasions where the inspection stickers will be on view; don't let this valuable real estate go to waste!

Most QC labels require a blank space for both date and signature to be filled in to ensure accurate records are kept. Remember to include this in your artwork during the design stage.

We've made it super easy to order your own quality control labels online and for a competitive price, no less! Our quality control labels are almost fully customisable, so you can design them to best fit your requirements! Simply follow the order process through to the artwork stage, where you'll have an array of options, from providing your artwork or having it created.

Quality control sticker uses

Quality control labels are a staple in many workplaces. Due to their vast array of uses, QC labels can be found in almost every element of your workflow. Be it to ensure administrative tasks are carried out accurately or that your equipment or final product meets required standards, quality control labels are vital to creating a safe workspace where employees feel confident to perform their day-to-day tasks. You can also utilise them to provide important information at a moment's notice, for example, best before dates or as QC passed labels to identify when something has passed quality control.


Quality control label materials

We know that quality control labels have many jobs. That's why we offer an array of materials to accommodate this. Our paper label range is our most cost-effective option and is excellent for labels that don't need to be too durable. However, if you need waterproof QC labels, our vinyl range would be perfect for you. Available in a range of finishes, including white, clear and metallic options, you'll be sure to find a material that suits your needs.

An important element of most quality control labels is durability and longevity. If you need your label to stay intact until our machine's next service, opt for our laminated vinyl material. It is our most durable material option, and ensures that your label will be good to go, even after long periods of time!

All of our quality control labels are printed in house in the UK, so you can trust us to dispatch your order swiftly after proof approval. With our vast range of material options, you'll be sure to find one that fits your use. If you're still unsure of which to choose, opt for our free sample pack to try before you buy!

Quality control sticker adhesives and finishes

We offer a removable, permanent and extra-permanent adhesive across our material range. The adhesive you choose is determined by the surface you want to adhere your labels to. Our permanent adhesive is our 'all-rounder.' Its level of adhesion suits a range of sticker uses. If you need a stronger adhesive option, or if you'll be adhering your labels to low-energy surfaces, our extra-permanent adhesive would be best.

Quality control label FAQs

What are quality control stickers?
Quality control labels help you ensure that elements of your workflow, for example, materials and equipment etc., meet required stipulations. They can also allow you to keep track of items in your inventory and make sure that administrative tasks are carried out accurately. Furthermore, they can provide important information, such as best-before dates or the-date-of when your machine's next service is due.

What are the four types of quality inspection?
There are four main stages of quality inspection: pre-production inspection, during production inspection, pre-shipment inspection, and container loading (or loading) supervision. Depending on your business, product etc., some of these steps may not apply to you. An additional stage is a piece by piece inspection, where a company would check each individual item.

Who is responsible for quality control?
The project manager is usually responsible for quality management. However, certain circumstances may see the use of quality experts or a quality assurance person. It's important that you delegate these roles correctly for your particular business/product.
