Inkjet Labels on A4 Sheets.

If you have an inkjet printer or a phaser wax printer then the label materials listed here are designed specifically for your machine. Inkjet printing relies on inks being dispersed and drying in the correct place on a surface to create the required printed image. Labels designed specifically for inkjet printers are therefore made with materials that provide a slightly absorbent surface, which helps to ensure that as much ink as possible dries in the exact place it is needed, improving the accuracy and resolution of the finished print.  

All of our material lists include a column indicating if a product is for use with inkjet and/or laser printers; if you print a laser label with an inkjet printer the ink will smudge and never dry properly, which is why you should always make sure that a label product is compatible with your printer. There are other, more general, materials which can be used on laser or inkjet printers and a full list of materials can be found here

We are often asked if we provide waterproof inkjet labels; usually these requests come from customers who are starting their own businesses and want to use the printer they already have (usually an inkjet printer). Unfortunately, most standard inkjet inks are water based, so when inkjet print gets wet or is handled it can run or smudge – not something you want to happen when your customers buy your products. So, if you need waterproof labels and waterproof print, we recommend using a colour laser printer (you can buy your own or borrow somebody else’s to start with), which produces completely waterproof print and looks amazing on a gloss label.

If you are buying a printer, we would recommend looking at OKI and HP models. We also recommend a company called “Printerbase”; they are a family owned specialist printer supplier (established for over 10 years) and give great advice and customer service.
