Get All Your Summer Treats Labelled With Bottle Labels And Jar Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Whether you’re selling food and drink as a business or simply making some home-made treats for friends and family, we’ve got the perfect sticky labels for your bottles and jars.

We’ve got bottle labels and jar labels in all shapes and sizes with material and adhesive options to suit all sorts of food and drink labelling applications.

BOTTLE LABELS AND JAR LABELS – WATERPROOF LABELS

You might be looking for bottle labels and jar labels that will remain firmly in place – print and all – even if they get a bit wet. In this case, we would recommend looking at our waterproof labels. These are all made with waterproof materials. Your sticky labels will stay stuck even if you submerge your bottles and jars in water. To ensure that the print remains in place, you will need to use a laser printer. Laser printers use a dry printing process to bond a dry powder (toner) onto your sticky labels. This results in waterproof print. Inkjet printers tend to use water-based inks, which run or smudge when wet.

Our waterproof labels are more expensive than paper labels. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, why not try our Splashproof Labels. These are paper labels with a gloss or semi-gloss coating, which creates a light layer of protection against moisture. You can’t submerge these sticky labels in water as they are, after all, still paper labels. If lightly splashed with water, you can wipe them clean and dry.

Our range of waterproof labels includes options for white labels or transparent labels, permanent labels or removable labels, and matt labels or gloss labels – so you can find an option that suits your application and the overall style you want to create on your bottles and jars.

BOTTLE LABELS AND JAR LABELS – REMOVABLE LABELS

If you want sticky labels that you can remove without damaging your containers, you need removable labels.

We have a range of sticky labels made with removable adhesives. Removable adhesives create strong adhesive bonds that remove cleanly from a surface in one piece. So no more sticky messes of adhesive residue. We have removable paper labels, as well as removable transparent labels, and removable white waterproof labels.

Alternatively, you may want to try our Water Wash Off Labels. These paper labels are made with a special permanent adhesive. This adhesive creates strong adhesive bonds that break down when you wash labelled items (ideally in warm soapy water). Wash off adhesives let you safely and securely label containers without worrying about the sticky labels falling off too soon OR about them damaging your containers when you try to remove each label.

Our removable labels can be handwritten or printed using a standard desktop printer. If you choose removable transparent labels or removable white waterproof labels, you need to use a laser printer.

BOTTLE LABELS AND JAR LABELS – FREEZER LABELS

You might be labelling bottles and jars that contain foodstuff that need to be stored in a freezer. Standard adhesives will often fail in freezing conditions. We supply a range of freezer labels, which are made with a special deep freeze adhesive. Designed for deep freeze conditions, this adhesive can form and sustain successful adhesive bonds in temperatures as low as -40°C.

Our freezer labels are made with standard matt white paper and may be handwritten or printed with a laser printer.

BOTTLE LABELS AND JAR LABELS – TRANSPARENT LABELS

Finally, if you’re looking for sticky labels to match transparent bottles and jars, we have a variety of transparent labels. Using transparent labels on transparent items can create a “floating print” effect or make it seem as though your printed design is actually part of your containers.

Our range of transparent labels includes options for permanent labels and removable labels, as well as the choice between matt labels and gloss labels. You must double check if you have a laser printer or an inkjet printer available. Most of our transparent labels are laser labels and can only be printed with a laser printer.

Have A Summer Full Of Colour With Coloured Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Tomorrow morning the summer solstice will take place, bringing with it the official start of summer. We’re celebrating with a review of all the coloured labels on offer from Label Planet.

Coloured Labels From Label Planet

We supply a variety of coloured labels. Each has its own range of colours and a certain type of adhesive and finish. If colour is an important part of your project, we recommend using our sample request service to see if our coloured labels fit your colour scheme.

COLOURED LABELS

Whether you’re looking to colour code stuff or simply brighten up a project with colourful labels, our pastel coloured labels are a brilliant way to add a subtle bloom of colour. You can handwrite or print these sticky labels using an inkjet or laser printer. We supply 69 different label sizes with 20 stocked in 25 sheet packs, 18 stocked in 100 sheet boxes, and the rest available to order in 500 sheet boxes.

We offer a range of SEVEN pastel colours; blue labels, orange red labels, yellow labels, green labels, crimson red labels, cream labels, and pink labels.

They have a standard permanent adhesive, which bonds well with most materials and surfaces. Coloured labels are both practical and decorative additions to any project. They instantly add a touch of decoration to any item, as well as having more practical benefits – especially if you need to colour code items or draw attention to important information. Our coloured labels are especially popular for use as product labels and packaging labels, address labels for special events, name labels for parties or networking events, gift tags, school labels and reward stickers, stock labels for rotation and stock management, and fun stickers for arts and crafts projects.

We also supply a range of brown Kraft labels; this range includes 54 label sizes and is also suitable for handwriting or printing with a laser or inkjet printer. Our Kraft labels have a natural brown colouring, while the ribbed finish adds a subtle touch of pattern and texture.

REMOVABLE COLOURED LABELS

If you’re looking for temporary coloured labels, you may want to take a look at our coloured removable labels (REMC). This range is the same as our coloured labels, except it features a removable adhesive instead of a permanent adhesive. Removable adhesives keep your coloured labels in place and don’t leave behind adhesive residue when you remove each label.

Removable coloured labels are a brilliant way to temporarily colour code stuff. They are especially popular with removal companies, manufacturers and storage facilities, auction houses, gift suppliers, and for general purpose organising and filing systems.

These products are made to order in boxes of 500 sheets and take up to five working days to be despatched after you order.

If you don’t need this many, you could try purchasing coloured labels and removable labels. Apply your coloured labels onto the removable labels to create coloured labels with a removable adhesive. Alternatively, you could purchase removable labels and add a colour coded element to your design.

FLUORESCENT LABELS

For those looking for a brighter burst of colour, our fluorescent labels range should do the trick. We have five neon colours; fluorescent red labels, fluorescent lemon / yellow labels, fluorescent orange labels, fluorescent green labels, and fluorescent magenta labels.

Fluorescent labels have a standard permanent adhesive and can be printed with laser printers or handwritten. We supply 66 label sizes in this range, including 8 sizes supplied in 25 sheet packs, 19 sizes available in 100 sheet packs, and a further 39 made to order sizes (available in 500 sheet boxes).

Fluorescent labels add a burst of colour that is hard to ignore. This makes these sticky labels especially popular when you need to highlight important information or really catch someone’s eye. Our fluorescent labels are often used as address labels and shipping labels, gift tags, marketing labels and promotional labels, information signs and warning notices, and as fun stickers for parties, events, or displays.

GOLD LABELS & SILVER LABELS

If you’re after a more luxurious look, our gold labels and silver labels add a subtle shimmer to any application. Each range contains 54 label sizes with 9 stocked in 25 sheet packs and the rest available to order in 500 sheet boxes.

All of our metallic labels are have standard permanent adhesives and an attractive satin gold finish. Made by applying a decorative gold coating onto clay-coated paper, our metallic labels have a beautifully smooth and bright surface.

You can handwrite or print your gold labels and silver labels using a laser printer. They are especially popular for use as marketing labels and promotional labels, as product labels and packaging labels on high value or gift items, or as address labels or gift tags on items that are intended to celebrate a special event or holiday. For example, they are often used as wedding labels and Christmas labels.

We also supply sets of metallic coloured star stickers. These sticky stars are available in three colours; gold, silver, and bronze. Each A4 sheet contains 280 stars measuring 12.7mm wide. Each pack contains 12 sheets of star stickers. We supply packs in each colour as well as an assorted pack containing gold stars, silver stars, and bronze stars.

What Are Kraft Labels?

Sticky labels made with a Kraft paper…

What Is Kraft Paper?

Kraft paper uses paper pulp produced by the Kraft process. This process has a number of benefits and advantages over alternative methods, including:

  • The ability to process wood from almost every species of tree.
  • A process of breaking down lignin that doesn’t damage the cellulose fibres in the process (lignin is a natural glue that holds wood fibres together).
  • The ability to easily separate and reuse unwanted waste elements.
  • The production of stronger and higher quality pulp (“Kraft” is a German word for strength).
  • The ability to produce paper with longer fibres, giving the paper greater elasticity, strength, and tear resistance.
  • A more environmentally friendly method of processing wood.

Kraft papers are usually created using unbleached pulp, which avoids the use of industrial strength bleaching agents in the manufacturing process. Kraft paper are therefore usually brown in colour. This is the natural colouring of the pulp use to make the paper.

What Are Label Planet’s Kraft Labels Like?

Our Kraft labels are made with a Kraft paper and a permanent adhesive. They are suitable for use with laser printers and inkjet printers OR for handwriting.

The Kraft paper has a ribbed finish, which adds a subtle texture and pattern of light and dark stripes. We believe this adds a decorative twist to the natural colouring of our Kraft labels. This makes them the perfect choice for any crafty project where you really want your sticky labels to look the part.

What Crafts Can I Create With Kraft Labels?

Kraft labels are brilliant for all sorts of crafty projects. They’re especially popular for use as address labels and product labels when our customers want their parcels and packaging to have a truly home-made touch. Some want a finishing touch with a “home-made” and personal feel. Others are labelling items made with natural ingredients or hand-made crafting techniques and want their sticky labels to match their methods.

They’re also perfect for use on personal projects at home. For example, they’re a great way to get your stuff organised in a more decorative way. They’re also perfect for making your own gifts, cards, or gift tags to celebrate a special day for a special someone (or someones!).
