This week we’re all about coloured labels; many people don’t realise that there are so many different coloured label products available and often assume that they’ll need to make do with a white label or add colour using their printer.
The truth is that there are many, many, many different coloured label products on the market and all of them bring a whole heap of benefits to any label application that could do with a bit of colour:
Labels With A Perfectly Personal Finishing Touch
Whether you’re sending out cards or gifts to friends and family and want to use labels and tags that are completely unique to you or you’ve got a small business and you want to add a personal finishing touch to your correspondence or products, coloured labels are a lovely way to personalise your items.
Labels For A Bit of Added Decoration
If you want a label that’s just a bit brighter than plain white labels, coloured labels give you an instant burst of colour, whether you opt for a subtle pastel shade or go all out with a fancy fluorescent.
Labels For Building Your Brand
Colour is a simple way to help boost brand recognition; if your logo and/or branding features a particular colour very prominently, using and repeating that colour across your marketing materials, packaging, and general correspondence is a great way to build your brand identity.
Labels To Get Attention
A coloured background provides a perfect burst of colour to draw attention to your labels (and your items) to help them stand out from the crowd.
Labels For A Special Occasion
Coloured labels are a lovely way to decorate stationery items that you might need for a special occasion; from address labels on invitations to a special event, personalised place holders for tables at a big do, gift tags for extra special birthdays or anniversaries, or tags on wedding favours or mementoes.
Labels To Highlight Important Information
If you’re adding information that is of the utmost importance (for example, health and safety warnings, directions, or instructions for use), using a bright colour as the background is an excellent way to ensure that your information gets noticed.
Labels To Help You Get Organised
Colour coding is a brilliant tool when it comes to getting organised and coloured labels are a fantastic way to get everything under control; whether you’re trying to bring a little calm to the chaos of your home, trying to bring structure to your workplace (especially if your filing system is threatening to become completely unusable), taking or rotating your stock, or taking control with schedules and categories, coloured labels can help to save you a lot of time.
Coloured labels have both cosmetic and practical benefits; they instantly create a more decorative finish and can help save you a bit of money by avoiding the need to use up a lot of toner or ink to flood coat white labels with a coloured background.
Here at Label Planet, we know that choosing the right colour can be an important decision, which is why we’re more than happy to send out samples of our coloured labels so you can see them for yourself and get a better idea of which one is the best option for you.
