Label Planet’s List Of Ways To Use Your Labels, Without A Printer!
We spend a lot of our time advising customers on the best labels for their laser or inkjet printer, how to get the best print results, and a whole host of Frequently Asked Questions about labels and printers and printers and labels.
But, it just so happens that our labels can be extremely useful all on their own…
It’s an old tradition but it’s a good one; instead of using a printer, take the more personal route and handwrite your address labels. Obviously, this works best for smaller quantities (unless you’ve got some willing volunteers to help you out) but taking the time to handwrite your address labels adds a truly personal touch to your letters and parcels. All of our paper labels can be written on with ease and can be used to create a lovely bespoke finish for all kinds of items.
Colour Coding Labels
This one applies to our ranges of coloured and fluorescent labels, which can be used to organise pretty much anything. Whether you’re at home and you need to get the family calendar organised; you’ve got stock to rotate, count, or promote; you’ve got office schedules and deadlines to plan; or you’re moving to a new home or office, these labels are an easy visual tool for getting things planned and organised – and you’ve got the choice of cool pastel shades or funky fluorescent colours. They can be used blank or you can add notes to help keep track of what (or who!) goes where, when, and why.
Children’s Activity Labels
Blank paper labels can be used for all sorts of children’s activities, whether they’re intended for educational purposes, just a bit of fun, or something to keep them occupied when you need a few minutes of peace and quiet. Our labels can be stuck onto homework, reward charts, exercise books, clothing, or project and activity materials and they can be written on with just about any kind of writing implement, from pens and pencils to crayons and glitter sticks. The list of uses is endless and the only limit is what you and your children can imagine!
Gift Tags/Packaging Seals
Whether you’re wrapping up presents for friends and family or looking for a simple, decorative way to seal your product packaging, our labels are an excellent finishing touch. You can opt for one of our colourful labels to add a fun, bright finishing touch or select from one of our transparent labels for a professional, subtle finish.
Reminders & Post-Its
Our removable labels are ideal for adding reminders and temporary notes to your diary, planner, calendar, the office noticeboard, or the fridge. You can scribble a quick note, leave it up for yourself or someone else to see, and then remove it when the job has been done, without doing any damage or leaving any adhesive residue behind.
Revision & Study Aids
Removable labels are also a great way to mark important passages or pages in books, to add your own notes to revision guides and source materials, or to create study cards that can be used to revise for exams. You can stick these notes in books, onto revision notes, or even around the house to help you learn key points throughout the day. Then, once an exam or piece of coursework is over, they can be removed without doing any damage.
Transparent White Boards
Our gloss clear polyester labels (material code GCP) can be used as transparent white boards; simply use a whiteboard marker to write or draw on one of these labels, then wipe it clean and start all over again. These labels are a great tool for use in offices, schools, or at home.
Name Labels & Badges
Our labels can be used as simple name badges and name labels for both personal and professional occasions. At home, our labels can be used as name badges at parties (where guests can have some fun creating their own designs) or to add name labels to children’s belongings (so there’s no confusion – or arguments – about which items belong to which child). They can also be used to create personal name badges for meetings and events held by businesses and organisations, whether it’s a company gathering or a charity fundraiser.
Of course, these are just a few of our suggestions and we know our creative customers have come up with all sorts of ways to use their labels without going anywhere near a printer – so why not give it try and see if a blank label is just the thing you need.
