Why Try Before You Buy? Request A Sample To Make Sure You Can Apply And Rely On The Labels We Supply!

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Here at Label Planet, we firmly believe in doing all we can to help our customers find the perfect label for their particular needs and a big part of this is our sample request service.

Allowing our customers to request a sample means they can buy labels from us knowing that they are the right labels for the job.

Whether you need to check if a material or adhesive is the right one for your application, you want to look at a few different colours or finishes to pick the best one for your project, or you want to practice printing your own labels, requesting a sample is a quick and easy (and free) way to make sure you pick the perfect label.

To request a sample you can get in touch with our Customer Service Team OR you can use our online Sample Request Form.

We ask that you give as much detail as you can about your application and preferences so that we can send the best options for your requirements. We also recommend that when you print and/or test your labels you replicate the actual application as closely possible to make sure that those labels will work for you.

All of our samples are sent out in C4 envelopes with your samples packed into plastic bags printed with a few of our top tips for trouble free label printing. We recommend that you read these tips to make sure that you get the most out of your sample labels.

You can find free templates for all of our label sizes (in Word and PDF formats) on our website, along with a Help Section that contains Step By Step Guides To Designing & Printing Labels, more Top Tips, and a Troubleshooting Guide – just in case you run into any issues.

Remember, you can always get in touch with our Customer Service Team if you need any help and advice on choosing, ordering, and printing your perfect labels; alternatively, you can simply visit our website now to request your free sample or to access our help and advice pages (including our Template Section).

Wish You Could Wash Away Your Labels When You Want? – Now You Can With Water Wash Off Labels!

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

This week, we’re taking a closer look at one of our newest products – Water Wash Off Labels.

Water wash off labels are a pretty ingenious solution to the problem of labelling re-usable containers that need to be emptied, cleaned, and re-labelled on a regular basis – such as ingredient containers in a professional kitchen or bottles and jars used to store homemade condiments and drinks. In any case, it is important that each container is clearly (and securely) labelled AND that those containers aren’t damaged when you remove and replace the labels.

In these applications, using a permanent adhesive would hold your labels firmly in place BUT would damage your containers each time you remove the old labels, while using a removable adhesive would prevent your containers from being damaged BUT would also run the risk of your labels coming off earlier than you’d like.

Water wash off labels offer a perfect alternative; they are permanent labels made with a special wash off adhesive, which creates a permanent adhesive bond that breaks down when exposed to water. This means that these labels will be completely permanent (provided the containers are stored in dry conditions) until you decide you no longer need them, at which point you can simply wash the labels away.

In the office, we like to call these labels “Wish Wash Labels”- because when you wish they would wash off, they will! These labels are perfect for all kinds of food and drink applications, because they allow vital information to be securely added to containers AND will wash cleanly away without damaging the containers in the process.

Our water wash off labels are made with paper and are supplied on A4 sheets; they can be printed using inkjet printers and laser printer or they can be handwritten. They are best suited to solid surfaces (such as plastic and glass) and should be stored carefully to preserve the effectiveness of the adhesive.

We have 8 label sizes available to order for same day despatch from stock, along with a further 36 label sizes available to order.

To find out more about our wonderful Water Wash Off Labels or to place an order today, simply head on over to our Water Wash Off range page.


We’d also like to mention that we will be shutting down for an Easter break again this year. We will be closing at 5pm on Thursday 13th April and re-opening on Monday 24th April. Any orders placed online during this period will be processed and despatched upon our return. If you have any questions or queries, please send us an email and we’ll respond as soon as we can once we’re back.
