Here's a list of our products that we use for our packaging needs in the Label Planet office.
Here in the Label Planet office, we are surrounded by labels in all sorts of shapes and sizes, materials, and adhesives. Even though we have a wide variety of options, we do have a few firm favourites that we use on a day to day basis.
Needless to say we use a LOT of labels; we label everything! Or, at least, we label a lot of things; including our individual packs of labels, a variety of paperwork, and most of our packaging. Here's a guide to the packaging labels used right here in the Label Planet office:
These labels are perfect address labels. They measure 210mm wide by 99.48mm high with square cut corners, making them a great size for adding address information that is easy to read.
These labels are also used by our sister company, Madebuy Ltd, on products that are sold via Amazon and Ebay. Customers often ask if we sell integrated labels for online trading – so they can print an address label on one part of an A4 sheet and use the rest (that is just plain paper) as the invoice or receipt. Madebuy Ltd, however, have found that our LP3/210 are perfect alternatives. They don’t require any integration into the Amazon or Ebay systems; these labels can be simply put into a printer and the address labels and receipts print straight out, with no need to edit files or create specific templates. LP3/210 labels make the packaging and despatch of products much simpler and much less time consuming – Madebuy have been using them now for over two and a half years! Even Amazon themselves use labels to print out receipts and delivery information, so why not give this alternative to integrated labels a try?
As if that weren’t enough, we also use LP3/210 labels as product labels on our stocked packs, to help customers (and ourselves!) identify the contents of a particular pack of labels, as well as providing a few key bits of information such as printer compatibility, label size, printing advice, and our contact information so customers can get in touch if they need any help.
These labels are from our Smartstamp® range and are known as “All-In-One” labels, which we think is a pretty apt description. We use these as address labels for our packages because they allow us to create a variety of address labels with different text and in different sizes, all from one sheet of labels. These labels let us print address labels, return labels, AND information labels all in one go. The smaller labels measure 63.5mm wide by 38mm high and the larger labels are 135mm wide by 38mm high. If you need address labels, why not request a sample and see if these Smartstamp® labels can help save you time (and money)?
These labels measure 38.1mm wide by 21.2mm high and are the most popular choice for printing return address labels – for ourselves and for many of our customers. For anyone sending out products or information, these labels are a quick and simple way to make sure that the recipient has your address (and any other contact details or messages you wish to send). These labels are available across our range of materials and adhesives (you can see all the options here) – we like to use the gold and silver ones, to add a decorative touch to all of our packages!
We use these labels, measuring 99.1mm wide by 38.1mm high, for a number of alternative purposes. These labels are great for adding additional information to our packs of labels, paperwork, and all manner of packaging. We tend to use these labels to inform customers of addition information about their order, their samples, or about offers and other similar products that are available. The length of the label means you can add a few sentences neatly and clearly onto one label. We like to use the fluorescent labels, as the bright colours mean that our messages really stand out. We also get to have some fun picking a different colour every time! We also use the gold and silver labels in this size as seals for our packages. We print our logo onto one end of the label, and then wrap the full label around the closing end of our boxes – this way, our packaging has a little bit more reinforcement AND our customers know that their package is from Label Planet!
Anyone who reuses packaging materials will have encountered the problem of covering up information from the initial sender. Here at Label Planet, we use LP8/99 labels (size: 99.1mm wide by 67.7mm high) in an opaque material, which means we can print our own information or address labels and then cover up existing text or images. Reusing packaging materials is an easy way to save money and help the environment. These handy labels mean you don’t have to waste time trying to remove existing labels or hunting around for a permanent marker to scribble out existing text.
