This short guide explains all you need to know about Label Planet's product codes (and template codes).
When it comes to the world of labels there are a lot of different codes floating around; from product and template codes through to manufacturing and supplier codes, it’s all too easy to get confused and wonder if you’ve got the right product and/or template, especially if you don’t know where a particular set of labels has come from.
Here at Label Planet, we like to make things as simple and straightforward for our customers as possible, which is why we set up all of our product and template codes according to a set pattern that never changes – and we always begin that pattern with “LP”, for Label Planet, so you always know when a code is one of ours.
So how do our Product (and Template) Codes work? Like this:
LP + No. of Labels Per Sheet + / + Label Width + Label Shape* + Label Material*
* A Label Shape indicator is not included for rectangles with rounded corners or square cut rectangles without a selvedge, and a Label Material indicator is not included for matt white paper labels with a permanent adhesive.
With our product codes you know where the labels have come from along with the most important features of that particular product, including how many labels are on a sheet, the width and shape of the labels, and the materials used to make those labels.
For example, if you see product code LP4/90OV MWP you know that there are four oval labels per sheet, with a width of 90mm, and made of matt white polyester!
We’ve even extended this simple way of thinking to our template codes; the template code you need to use will be named according to the first part of the product code of the labels you are trying to print (i.e. the LPXX/XX part). This is because the same template can be used to print a range of different products that are made of a variety of materials but share the same label size and layout.
For example, our LP2/115R template can be used to print ALL of these products:
LP2/115R (matt white paper labels), LP2/115R REM (matt white paper labels with a removable adhesive), LP2/115R C (coloured paper labels), and LP2/115R FC (fluorescent paper labels).
