Here's how Label Planet's product codes work and what they mean.
Our product codes follow a simple system to help us (and our customers) identify the size, material, and adhesive of their materials. This is especially important when customers are placing an order.
Label Planet codes explained:
1. Label Planet
All of our codes begin with an “LP” to indicate that a product is one from Label Planet
2. Number Per Sheet & Size
The next part of the code will be a number followed by a forward slash (/) followed by another number. The first number indicates the number of labels per sheet and the second number indicates the width or diameter of the labels.
It should be noted that ALL of our different product ranges will begin with this information. If you need to order a different material, adhesive, shape, or colour you MUST add extra codes to specify the particular range of labels you are ordering from.
For example, if you go to our website and order LP12/63, you will receive sheets of labels that are made of plain white paper, with 12 labels per sheet, and with each label measuring 63.5mm wide by 72mm high. If you want to order this size in a different material, you will need to add on the code for that material. For example, for LP12/63 in pink, the product code should be LP12/63 PK. For LP12/63 in matt transparent polyester, the product code should be LP12/63 MTP.
So what are the extra codes you need to look out for?
- SQUARE CUT RECTANGLES
Some of our square cut labels feature a selvedge along one or more of the edges on the sheet. This is a narrow, blank strip and all of these products will have an “S” after the first part of their code. For example, LP12/105S and LP33/70S.
Our circular, square, and oval labels also have an extra letter or letters in their code to indicate that they are a different shape. After the first part of the code, circles will have an “R”, squares will have “SQ”, and ovals will have “OV”; for example LP15/51R, LP6/95SQ, or LP14/95OV.
We currently have six pastel and five fluorescent colours to choose from, which are indicated by the following codes: R (red), G (green), B (blue), Y (yellow), PK (pink), CR (cream), FO (fluorescent orange), FR (fluorescent red), FG (fluorescent green), FL (fluorescent lemon), and FM (fluorescent magenta).
Finally, each of our product ranges has its own material code to indicate that a product belongs to a specific range and is therefore made from a particular material and adhesive. Our standard matt white paper range does have a product code (STA), but this isn’t used on our website. So, if you are buying from any other product range you need add one of the following codes to the END of a product’s code to indicate the material and adhesive you want:
DF – plain matt white paper with a freezer adhesive
REM – plain matt white paper with a removable adhesive
REMC – plain matt paper in one of six pastel colours with a removable adhesive
GREM – plain matt white paper with a super removable adhesive
HT – plain matt white paper with a high tack adhesive
GW – gloss white paper for laser printers
GWPQ – gloss white paper for laser and inkjet printers
MPQ – matt white premium quality paper with a standard adhesive
LS – semi gloss silver paper for laser printers
LG – semi gloss gold paper for laser printers
GCP – gloss clear polyester for inkjet printers
GTP – gloss transparent polyester for laser printers
GTR – gloss transparent polyester with a removable adhesive for laser printers
