The World Of Label Planet Has Expanded Once Again!

Brand New Label Sizes & Self Adhesive Labels Are Now Available

Over the last few months, we’ve been working hard to expand our range of self adhesive labels to give our customers even more choice when it comes to picking the perfect label.

We’ve introduced brand new label sizes, new size and material combinations, and we’ve added a variety of self adhesive labels to our stocked sizes and materials – meaning we’ve got an even bigger range of laser labels and inkjet labels available for same day despatch from stock in packs of 25 sheets.

Without further ado, here is a selection of the latest additions to our range of self-adhesive labels…

Coloured Labels & Kraft Labels

We’ve expanded our range of Kraft Labels to match our Coloured Labels and we’ve added two existing label sizes to the stocked section of both ranges – LP1/210 (1 coloured label per sheet measuring 210mm wide by 297mm wide) and LP36/49 (36 coloured labels per sheet measuring 48.8mm wide by 29.6mm high).

So, if you’re looking for sticky labels that offer a fun and decorative finish to any labelling project, now you’ve got even more choice! The LP1/210 label size is also a brilliant option if you want to create your own label sizes and shapes; simply print your designs onto these A4 labels and then cut out the shapes you need.

Gold Labels & Silver Labels

We’ve also expanded our range of metallic labels to include an amazing 44 label sizes in both gold labels and silver labels. Both ranges also feature 9 of our most popular label sizes as stocked items – including 6 rectangular labels and 3 round labels.

Gold labels and silver labels are a brilliant way to add a touch of luxury to items and are especially popular for use as gift labels, product labels, or address labels for extra special occasions!

Paper Labels

All of our special paper labels now include LP10/99 as a stocked label size; this particular label size features 10 self adhesive labels per sheet – each measuring 99.1mm wide by 57mm wide – and is compatible with a range of Avery labels (including J8173*, L7173*, L7973*, and L7992*).

This label size is really versatile and can be used for all sorts of label applications, including address labels, bottle labels, jar labels, and product labels.

Opaque Labels

We have supplied opaque labels (also known as blockout labels) for a few years but never carried these permanent labels as stocked items – until now! We’ve created a stocked section for this label range, which includes 12 self adhesive label sizes available for same day despatch from stock in packs of 25 sheets.

Opaque labels are a quick and easy way to cover up out of date or incorrect information on pre-printed materials (including leaflets and packaging) or to reuse / recycle old packaging by replacing existing print or sticky labels with new designs and/or information.

New Label Sizes

Finally, we’ve also added 10 brand new label sizes to all of our ranges – which means that all 30 of our self adhesive label materials and adhesives are now available in 10 additional label sizes! Our brand new label sizes are:

  • LP2/105: 2 blank labels per sheet, measuring 105mm wide by 297mm high with square cut corners
  • LP4/210: 4 blank labels per sheet, measuring 210mm wide by 74.25mm high with square cut corners
  • LP21/70: 21 blank labels per sheet, measuring 70mm wide by 42.42mm high with square cut corners
  • LP24/72: 24 blank labels per sheet, measuring 72mm wide by 21.15mm high with rounded corners
  • LP27/63: 27 blank labels per sheet, measuring 63.5mm wide by 29.6mm high with rounded corners
  • LP30/70: 30 blank labels per sheet, measuring 70mm wide by 29.7mm high with square cut corners
  • LP189/25: 189 blank labels per sheet, measuring 25.4mm wide by 10mm high with rounded corners
  • LP15/51SQ: 15 square labels per sheet, measuring 51mm by 51mm with rounded corners
  • LP35/37SQ: 35 square labels per sheet, measuring 37mm by 37mm with rounded corners
  • LP70/25SQ: 70 square labels per sheet, measuring 25mm by 25mm with rounded corners

New Products: Yes, We’ve Got Another THREE New Label Products For You To Choose From!

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

We’ve decided to kick-start the year with the introduction of three brand new products, which are all now available for our customers to buy or try (a sample).

Each one of our new products has been designed for a particular kind of application, which means that they’ll be the perfect label for the job – whether you need bottle labels and jar labels, super sticky adhesive labels, or waterproof labels that will survive in all kinds of outdoor (and indoor) conditions.

WATER WASH OFF LABELS – for when you wish your labels would just wash off.
These wonderful labels are made with a wash-off adhesive, which means that they provide a unique combination of a permanent label that can also be removed cleanly and easily – without doing any damage to your labelled items. They are perfect bottle labels and jar labels, although they can be used to label any kind of reusable container, where they can be used to clearly and securely label a container before washing away so that the container can be relabelled and reused.

Available in 8 stocked sizes for same day despatch and a further 36 made to order sizes, these paper labels can be handwritten or printed with an inkjet or laser printer.

SUPER TACK LABELS –for when you wish your labels would get a grip.
You may have noticed that we already have a “High Tack” product range; our Super Tack labels take things a step further and feature our strongest permanent adhesive to date. These labels have a supremely strong initial tack and long term adhesion to match, which allows them to create a super strong bond upon immediate contact with an item or surface and to maintain that bond over time – even when the item is made of an unusual material or the surface is curved or rough.

Available in 11 stocked sizes for same day despatch and a further 33 made to order sizes, these paper labels can be handwritten or printed with an inkjet or laser printer.

POLYOLEFIN LABELS – for when you need a label for the great outdoors.
The latest addition to our range of waterproof labels, these polyolefin labels are made with a matt white polyolefin and a marine standard adhesive, which makes them perfect for any outdoor (or indoor) application that requires a tough, long-lasting label that can survive in all kinds of conditions. The polyolefin is soft and pliable, which means that they are ideal for curved or flat surfaces and the waterproof materials allow these labels to survive even if they are exposed to (or submerged in) water.

Available in 16 stocked sizes for same day despatch and a further 28 made to order sizes, these plastic labels can be handwritten or printed with a laser printer.

NEW PRODUCT – Introducing The Newest Label Size Available From Label Planet – LP4/210!

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

This summer, we’ve welcomed a brand new label size to our world of labels so our customers have even more choice when it comes to picking the perfect label.

A new addition to our range of rectangular labels with square cut corners, the LP4/210 label size measures 210mm wide by 74.25mm high, which makes a brilliantly versatile size that can come in handy in all kinds of ways.

LP4/210

For customers who want their labels to be long and thin, the LP4/210 is a perfect option to use for these applications. It’s a really useful size for creating address and shipping labels (whether you’re sending personal correspondence or delivering products to customers), for getting your files and folders labelled (especially if you’ve got an endless pile of lever arch files and box files to sort through), and is a great way to get any space organised at home or at work by adding labels to your drawers, cabinets, boxes, and shelves (whether you’re simply trying to bring a bit of harmony to your living or work space or you’re keeping track of endless boxes of stock).

Our LP4/210 label size is supplied on blank A4 sheets of matt white paper with a standard permanent adhesive, which will allow these labels to remain firmly stuck onto a range of materials and surfaces. With a minimum order quantity of 25 sheets, these labels are among our stocked items, which are available to order for same day despatch.

You can find and download printing templates for our new size on the LP4/210 Template Information Page, which provides a full set of templates (in Word or PDF format), details about this label size, and a few tips for designing and printing labels of this particular size and layout.

All That Glitters Is Not Gold – Because We’ve Got Brand New Label Sizes In Gold AND Silver!

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Yes, the Label Planet universe is expanding once again and this time we’ve added a little more sparkle to our world with new additions to our range of Metallic Paper Labels.

We’ve introduced 15 new sizes in both our Gold Labels and Silver Labels product ranges; these sizes are available to order in boxes of 100 or 500 sheets (with up to five working days for despatch).

These self-adhesive labels are made with gold or silver paper that has a semi-gloss textured finish and a permanent adhesive; they are suitable for use with laser printers or for handwriting. Our new products include 10 rectangular label sizes and 5 circular label sizes, which means our customers now have 24 label sizes to choose from if they’re looking for a decorative label that has that extra special luxurious finish.

Our gold and silver labels are especially popular for label applications that involve labelling items that are that extra bit special or important. From product labels on gift items to address labels on wedding invitations, these labels are a simple way to add a touch of splendour to any items that deserve to be given an extra special finish.

The bright finish means they’re ideal for marketing and promotional labels that really need to stand out and they have a shine that is perfect for “big occasions”, whether that’s a wedding, a big birthday or anniversary, seasonal holidays and events (especially Christmas), or just something that’s a little bit special.

To view all of the sizes now available, visit our Gold Labels page or our Silver Labels page to place an order for the bright shiny things of your choosing.

New Product – Introducing A Brand New Shade Of Red!

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

We absolutely love our coloured labels and we’re always looking for ways to improve this range and make it the best it can possibly be. We’re therefore delighted to announce that we’ve now got our hands on a brand new shade of label, which we’re calling Crimson Red!

While we (and many of our customers) are perfectly happy with our existing red product, we were always aware that – as a tomato red – sometimes it just wasn’t quite the right shade of red for some of our customers.

Where our existing red is an orange-red, our new crimson red is a lovely bright shade of red that falls on the pinker side of the colour scale. The brightness and lightness of this shade means it provides a wonderful background colour for your labels but will still allow your print to stand out.

To avoid confusion we’re renaming our existing red, which will now be known as “Orange-Red” and will have the colour code “ORD”, while our new shade of red will be referred to as “Crimson Red” and will have the colour code “CRD”.

Our new Crimson Red is available to order in 25 stocked sizes and 26 made to order sizes, while our original Orange-Red is available to order in 34 stocked sizes and 26 made to order sizes; both colours are also available to order as removable labels (48 made to order sizes available with a minimum order quantity of 500 sheets).

You can find these two shades of red (along with our other pastel shades) on our Coloured Labels and Removable Coloured Labels pages; to request a sample and see the difference for yourself simply get in touch or fill in our online Sample Request form.

Totally Frangible and Utterly Destructible: Meet Label Planet’s Tamper Evident Vinyl Labels

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

You might be wondering just what exactly does “Frangible” mean? Or what makes something “Destructible”? Or what is a “Tamper Evident Label”? And what makes them so secure anyway? Well never fear, because this post is here to give you all the answers!

FRANGIBLE
“Frangible” is a term used to refer to materials that are easily damaged or destroyed; they tend to have very little internal strength and structural integrity, which means that if they are subjected to even the smallest amount of tear stress they will fragment into tiny pieces.

DESTRUCTIBLE
Unsurprisingly, “destructible” is simply a word used to refer to something that is easy to destroy!

TAMPER EVIDENT
“Tamper Evident” is a term used in the labelling industry to describe label products that are designed to produce evidence of any attempt to tamper with a label (and therefore the item that a label was applied to). This “evidence” takes many different forms – but is usually a visual indicator – and is produced in a variety of ways using a variety of materials.

TAMPER EVIDENT SECURITY LABELS
“Security Label” is a general term used to describe any label product that is intended to improve the security of the item to which it is applied. These labels might act as a visual deterrent, track the location of an object, prevent counterfeiting, or provide evidence that a label (and therefore an item) has been tampered with. In labelling, the term “Security Labels” is usually used to refer specifically to “Tamper Evident Labels”; in other words, any label that is designed to provide evidence (usually visual) of any attempt to tamper with the label.

These labels, therefore, improve the security of an item that they are applied to by acting as a visual deterrent to anyone who might want to damage or steal an item, and by providing visual evidence that someone has tampered with the label (and therefore the item).

 LABEL PLANET’S TAMPER EVIDENT VINYL LABELS (TEV)
So, that’s what our Tamper Evident Vinyl Labels are all about. These security labels are made from a special cast vinyl that is extremely frangible and have a strong, permanent adhesive. Once one of these labels has been applied to an item, any attempt to remove the label will result in the vinyl disintegrating into pieces; this means that it is difficult to pull off any more than tiny pieces of the label and the remaining fragments stay firmly in place as a clear indication that the label (and therefore an item) has been tampered with.

These labels are ideal for providing a deterrent to anyone who might be considering damaging or stealing high or added value items, and for proving any attempt to tamper with the label/item; they can be applied directly to these items or (if it isn’t possible, appropriate, or desirable to apply a label directly onto an item) onto the packaging that such items are stored or sold in.

We have nine sizes of tamper evident vinyl labels available for same day despatch from stock (25 sheet minimum order quantity) and a wide range of sizes available to order (500 sheet minimum order quantity).

Please visit the Tamper Evident Vinyl Labels range page to find out more, read the Material Specification Sheet, view the sizes available, or buy your labels now.

Leaving A Void: A Closer Look At “VOID” Security Labels

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Today, we’re taking a closer look at our Silver “VOID” Polyester Labels (SVP).

These labels are one example of “Tamper Evident” labels; known as such because they provide evidence of any attempt to tamper with the labels (and therefore the items they are applied to).

Tamper Evident labels tend to leave a visual indication of tampering and with “VOID” labels this is achieved through the use of special adhesives, coatings, and/or laminates. Labels are made up of a number of layers and “VOID” labels take advantage of this layering to produce evidence of tampering. When an attempt is made to remove a “VOID” label, all or part of the adhesive layer will separate from the rest of the label and so indicate that the label has been tampered with.

There are three kinds of “VOID” labels; total transfer, non-transfer, and partial transfer. Total transfer labels have an extra layer (usually a special coating) between the face material and the adhesive; when the label is removed the coating (which is usually printed with a “VOID” message) and the adhesive remain in place to indicate that the label has been removed. With non-transfer labels, the “VOID” message is usually printed on the back of the face material or an extra layer (again a special coating), which will be revealed when the label is removed.

The most common type of “VOID” label, however, is the partial transfer; these labels use “pattern coating” to create the “VOID” message on both the label itself and the item that was labelled. Some use a pattern release coating between the face material and an extra layer (of special coating) or a pattern release adhesive; in either case, when a label is removed the bottom layer will be split between the surface of the item and the label. With our “VOID” labels, the adhesive that remains on the item spells out “VOID” in block capital letters, while the same message is also formed on the label itself where areas of adhesive are now missing.

“VOID” labels can be used to improve the security of high or added value items in a number of ways; if applied directly onto an item they will act as a visual deterrent against damage or theft and will indicate if any attempt has been made to tamper with the label (and therefore the item); where it is impossible, inappropriate, or undesirable to label an item directly they can be used as security seals on packaging to deter people from opening the item (who shouldn’t!) and to indicate when an item has been opened; and they can be used as Warranty Seals, which will act as a visual indicator that the warranty on an item has been voided (usually by an individual damaging, mishandling, or misusing an item in a way that would void any agreed warranty).

Our Silver “VOID” Polyester Labels are supplied on A4 sheets and are suitable for use with laser printers. We have nine sizes available for same day despatch from stock (25 sheet minimum order quantity) and a full range of sizes available to order (500 sheet minimum order quantity).

Visit the Silver “VOID” Polyester Labels range page to find out more about these labels, to view the Material Specification Sheet for this product, view the sizes available, or to simply buy.

New Products: We’ve Got Three, Yes THREE, Brand New Label Products

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Yes, we’ve been busy this summer and we’ve got three brand new label products to introduce to our customers.

First up we have two new security label products: Tamper Evident Vinyl Labels and Silver “VOID” Polyester Labels.

TAMPER EVIDENT VINYL LABELS (TEV)
These labels are designed to increase the security of items by providing evidence of any attempt to tamper with the label (and therefore the item that the label is applied to). These labels are made with an extremely fragile cast vinyl material and a strong, permanent adhesive. Once a label has been applied, any attempt to remove the label will cause the vinyl to disintegrate into tiny pieces, making it impossible to remove the label in its entirety and providing visual evidence of tampering.

MATERIAL: Matt White Cast Vinyl
ADHESIVE: Strong Permanent Adhesive
PRINTER COMPATIBILITY: Laser Only
LABELLING APPLICATIONS: Security Labels on High or Added Value Products/Items OR Security Seals on High or Added Value Product Packaging

SILVER “VOID” POLYESTER LABELS (SVP)
These labels also provide evidence of any attempt to tamper with the label (and therefore the item that the label is applied to). These labels are made with a silver polyester and a special partial transfer “VOID” adhesive. If an attempt is made to remove one of these labels, the word “VOID” will appear on both the item that was labelled and the label itself; this means that it is evident that a label/item has been tampered with and makes it impossible to reuse the label to hide the fact that an item has been tampered with.

MATERIAL: Matt Metallic Silver Polyester
ADHESIVE: Strong Permanent “VOID” Adhesive
PRINTER COMPATIBILITY: Laser Only
LABELLING APPLICATIONS: Security Labels on High or Added Value Products/Items, Security Seals on High or Added Value Product Packaging, OR Warranty Labels/Seals

Our third product is a new colourful addition, made with Brown Ribbed Kraft paper.
BROWN RIBBED KRAFT LABELS (BRK)
These labels are made with an uncoated, unbleached ribbed kraft paper, which means they have a natural brown colouring with a subtle touch of pattern and texture. Supplied on A4 sheets with a permanent adhesive and suitable for use on laser and inkjet printers, these labels are particularly popular for use on homemade or hand crafted products and for use when an individual or business wants to use products that are more environmentally friendly.

MATERIAL: Brown Ribbed Kraft Paper
ADHESIVE: Permanent Adhesive
PRINTER COMPATIBILITY: Inkjet and Laser
LABELLING APPLICATIONS: Product/Packaging Labels, Address Labels, Marketing & Promotional Labels, OR General Purpose Craft Labels

All of these products currently have NINE sizes available for same day despatch from stock (25 sheet minimum order quantity) and a full range of sizes available to order (500 sheet minimum order quantity). Find out more here:
