Seasonal Tips & Tricks To Get Your Christmas Labels Sorted

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

There are all sorts of ways that sticky labels can help you to get organised at Christmas, including address labels and gift tags for all your Christmas presents and post. To help you keep the chaos of Christmas under wraps, here are Label Planet’s top tips to get your seasonal sticky labels in shape.

Use Coloured Labels For Instant Decoration And Use Transparent Labels For Decorative Packaging

Before you start thinking about incredibly complex designs, why not consider a simpler way to make your Christmas labels merry and bright – by using coloured labels to create an instant decorative background for your designs.

We supply a variety of coloured labels, from seven subtle pastels to five fierce fluorescents, by way of two luxurious metallics (gold and silver – perfectly suited to the season), and a ribbed brown Kraft paper, which instantly adds a natural colouring along with a touch of pattern and texture.

If, on the other hand, you’re sticking Christmas labels onto decorative packaging (for example, product labels on gift items or address labels on decorative envelopes), you may want to avoid covering up your festive designs. In this case, try using transparent labels. These allow you to add your text and/or designs without covering up the designs beneath.

Personalise Your Sticky Labels But Keep Your Design Simple

Sticky labels are a brilliant (and quick) way to personalise all kinds of items. There are so many ways to create festive designs, including festive fonts, images, photographs, borders, and backgrounds. But remember, it’s best to keep things simple.

Using every single possible design element just because you can is never a good idea. You’ll end up with a messy, cluttered design, which might prevent your sticky labels from actually doing their job (for example, displaying delivery information on address labels or product information on product labels). Instead, a clean, simple design is best – and it’ll be much quicker to design and print.

Make sure you keep your design to within the capabilities of your software AND your own design experience. That way, you’ll be able to design and print a label template in no time at all – leaving you free to get on with other Christmas preparations.

Get Your Christmas List Under Control & Use A Mail Merge To Print A Perfect Set Of Address Labels

Many people decide to print their own address labels because it’s a brilliant and quick way to create a decorative and professional-looking set of labels that are truly unique.

A mail merge combines a template with an address list to create one address label for each recipient. All you have to do is add your design, connect your address list, and the mail merge does the work for you.

Word includes a Step By Step Mail Merge Wizard to guide you through the SIX (yes just six) steps involved to help you create a perfect set of address labels. You’ll also find plenty of tips and tricks to help you out on our Labels Blog and our Label Templates Blog.

Keep Your Design In Shape To Make It Simple To Design & Print Your Own Christmas Labels

When creating Christmas designs, it’s easy to go overboard and make things overly complicated. Customers often choose more unusual designs and label shapes – round labels and oval labels are popular choices for seasonal stickers.  These factors can make it harder to design and print your Christmas labels accurately.

Most difficulties, however, can be avoided by a) keeping things simple and b) following these top tips:

  • Centralise your design so it expands from the centre of each label. This helps improve the accuracy of alignment when you print your template.
  • Take care with backgrounds and borders; if your design reaches the edges of your sticky labels, any misalignment becomes much more obvious. Most printers have limited accuracy (within a few millimetres), which makes it difficult to align every design perfectly. This often results in white edging; when a design doesn’t quite line up, portions of a label edge may be left unprinted.If there are gaps all the way around your labels you can oversize your background and/or border. This allows your design to bleed over (overlap) the edges of your labels. We supply Bleed Label Templates, where possible, which show the bleed area available around each label.

    If you don’t have gaps to use as a bleed area, you can only oversize monochrome backgrounds and/or borders. Any inconsistency in colour will clearly indicate that your design has bled over onto an adjacent label.

    The alternative is to amend your design; removing or restricting your background and/or border so it doesn’t reach the edges of your sticky labels.

  • Add your design to the top left label and use copy and paste to complete your label template. This is much faster AND more accurate – because every design is the same.

Make Your Post Personal & Professional With Address Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

Address labels are the perfect way to make your post more presentable. Whether you’re looking to add personality or professionality, we’ve got address labels to make your post look perfect!

Address Labels – A Practical & Pretty Addition To All Your Post

While you can use address labels simply to make your post more decorative or professional in appearance, there’s a lot to be said for the practical benefits of printing address labels.

Printing address labels can save you a lot of time – especially if you’ve got a long mailing list. There are plenty of automated tools to speed up the process even further. For example, mail merges are a brilliant tool, whether you’re a business or organisation getting in touch with customers, clients, or supporters or simply an individual who has a very long Christmas card list.

Printing labels is also a lot less strenuous than handwriting your own address labels and you get a perfectly uniform set of labels – brilliant if your handwriting tends to get a bit wonky.

You may worry that printed address labels aren’t as personal as handwritten ones but there are hundreds of ways to personalise address labels to make sure that they are truly unique. Decorative designs, fonts, and photographs can all be included to make your address labels your own.

Printing address labels allows you to combine the practical and the pretty to ensure that your post gets where it needs to go AND lets people know who it’s from – before they even open it! For example, you could include a personal message (or design) or company/organisation details and branding.

Address Labels – Product Options To Suit Every Purpose

Whether you’re trying to make your post more personal or professional, we’ve got the perfect products for you!

address labels from label planetWhite Address Labels

If you’re looking for something classic, you can’t go wrong with a white paper label. White labels are easy to read and provide the perfect background for colourful designs and/or photographs. There are three options to choose from:

  • White Labels: our standard paper labels are made with matt white paper and are suitable for inkjet and laser printers. Ideal for basic address labels – and perfect if you’re working a tight budget.
  • Gloss White Labels: for a subtle touch of decoration, our gloss labels are an ideal choice. They have a bright and shiny surface, which makes your information/design stand out against matt envelopes and packaging. We have Gloss Labels For Laser Printers, Semi-Gloss Labels For Laser Printers (for a more subtle degree of shine), and Photo-Quality Gloss Labels – ideal if you want to add photographs or high resolution artwork to your address labels.
  • Premium Paper Labels: if you prefer a matt finish, our premium paper labels are perfect. They are made with a specially coated paper, which is ideal for printing high resolution artwork and photographs. These paper labels can be printed with an inkjet or a laser printer.

Coloured Address Labels

For a super quick and effective way to add a touch of decoration to your post, coloured address labels are the ideal solution. They give you an instantly decorative background for your text and designs, although you may need to make sure that you choose suitable colour schemes to make sure your print remains legible against the coloured background. They’re also a brilliant way to reflect your company/organisation brand colours and are especially popular for special events, both personal and professional in nature. Again, there are three options to choose from:

  • Coloured Labels: our pastel coloured labels are available in seven shades; red labels, orange-red labels, yellow labels, green labels, blue labels, pink labels, and cream labels. You can print them using a laser or inkjet printer.
  • Gold Labels & Silver Labels: our metallic coloured labels are a popular choice for festive items, celebrations, and special events – particularly for seasonal items and for weddings. They have a satin metallic finish and can be printed using a laser printer.
  • Kraft Labels: our brown Kraft labels have a ribbed finish for a subtle touch of pattern and texture. Especially popular for homemade and craft items, these address labels offer a natural finish that is perfect for adding a personal touch to your post.

Transparent Address Labels

Transparent labels are a brilliantly versatile way to create address labels. They are ideal if you have decorative envelopes or packaging; firstly, they avoid the problem of trying to colour match patterning (and brand colours) and they allow you to avoid plastering a less decorative address label over your carefully chosen pattern. They can allow you to add your address information on to items seamlessly – so your envelopes / packaging appear pre-printed with the correct details. We offer three options for transparent labels:

  • GCP: GLOSS transparent labels, suitable for use with inkjet printers only.
  • GTP: GLOSS transparent labels, suitable for use with laser printers only.
  • MTP: MATT transparent labels, suitable for use with laser printers only.

Here’s To The Arrival Of Autumn; A Selection Of Seasonal Self Adhesive Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

The Autumn Equinox took place over the weekend – traditionally heralding the arrival of autumn. To celebrate, we’ve put together a selection of suitably seasonal self adhesive labels.

Label Planet Labels Logo

Autumn Self Adhesive Labels – Coloured Labels

Coloured labels are perfect all year round but we’ve got plenty of shades that are perfectly seasonal.

Our pastel shades are ideal for adding a subtle bloom of colour and our “warm” shades are ideal for creating an autumnal feel – especially our crimson red labels, orange-red labels, and our yellow labels.

These coloured labels are suitable for use with inkjet and laser printers or for handwriting.

For a wonderfully natural finish and a perfect touch of the homemade, we highly recommend our brown Kraft paper labels. Made with Kraft paper, these self adhesive labels retain the natural colouring of the pulp used to make the paper. Our Kraft paper labels have a ribbed finish, which adds a brilliantly subtle touch of pattern and texture.

Our Kraft paper labels are suitable for use with inkjet and laser printers or for handwriting.

If you’re looking for something a bit bolder, why not try our fluorescent labels. Our magenta labels, red labels, and yellow labels are especially seasonal and add a burst of colour to any project.

Our fluorescent labels are suitable for use with laser printers or for handwriting.

Autumn Self Adhesive Labels – Gold Labels & Silver Labels

For a subtle touch of shimmer and shine and a luxurious appearance, try our metallic paper labels. Our gold labels and silver labels have a super smooth satin finish and are a brilliantly decorative addition to any items that are to be used in a special event or promotional offer.

Our gold labels and silver labels are suitable for use with laser printers or for handwriting.

Autumn Self Adhesive Labels – Waterproof Labels

As we shift seasons, the great British weather will inevitably kick in, which means that you might be in need of waterproof labels. Whether you need self adhesive labels that will survive the great outdoors (or the slightly soggy indoors), we have a wide range of waterproof labels that are tough and durable enough to rise to the challenge. Our waterproof labels include options for transparent labels, white labels, silver labels, gloss labels, matt labels, permanent labels, and removable labels.

If you need self adhesive labels that are truly outdoor proof, we highly recommend our marine labels; these are made with a special marine adhesive, which has been tested specifically for use in marine conditions.

Most of our waterproof labels need to be printed with a laser printer. This is because laser printers use heat and pressure to bond a dry powder (toner) into place – creating waterproof print. Inkjet printers tend to use water-based inks, which will run and/or smudge when your print gets wet. The exception is our MWPP material; this uses a special top coating to form a protective layer over your print.

Autumn Self Adhesive Labels – Bottle Labels & Jar Labels & Food Labels

If you’re planning on making some tasty treats to enjoy as the nights draw in, you might be in need of some bottle labels, jar labels, or food labels for a variety of containers. You can use pretty much any of our self adhesive labels for this purpose but two are especially useful.

Our freezer labels are the best choice if you are making food stuffs that will need to be stored in the freezer. These paper labels have an adhesive designed specifically to form and sustain adhesive bonds in deep freeze conditions.

Likewise, our water wash off labels are an ideal choice for labelling reusable containers. These sticky labels have a special adhesive; it forms a permanent adhesive bond (which means your sticky labels will stay firmly stuck) that breaks down when exposed to water (which means your sticky labels will peel away cleanly without damaging your containers – simply by giving them a good old wash).

Our freezer labels are suitable for use with laser printers or for handwriting. Laser printers produce waterproof print that will stay in place even if condensation gets on your self adhesive labels. Inkjet printers tend to use water-based inks that will run and/or smudge when wet.

Our water wash off labels are suitable for use with inkjet or laser printers and can also be handwritten.

Have A Summer Full Of Colour With Coloured Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Tomorrow morning the summer solstice will take place, bringing with it the official start of summer. We’re celebrating with a review of all the coloured labels on offer from Label Planet.

Coloured Labels From Label Planet

We supply a variety of coloured labels. Each has its own range of colours and a certain type of adhesive and finish. If colour is an important part of your project, we recommend using our sample request service to see if our coloured labels fit your colour scheme.

COLOURED LABELS

Whether you’re looking to colour code stuff or simply brighten up a project with colourful labels, our pastel coloured labels are a brilliant way to add a subtle bloom of colour. You can handwrite or print these sticky labels using an inkjet or laser printer. We supply 69 different label sizes with 20 stocked in 25 sheet packs, 18 stocked in 100 sheet boxes, and the rest available to order in 500 sheet boxes.

We offer a range of SEVEN pastel colours; blue labels, orange red labels, yellow labels, green labels, crimson red labels, cream labels, and pink labels.

They have a standard permanent adhesive, which bonds well with most materials and surfaces. Coloured labels are both practical and decorative additions to any project. They instantly add a touch of decoration to any item, as well as having more practical benefits – especially if you need to colour code items or draw attention to important information. Our coloured labels are especially popular for use as product labels and packaging labels, address labels for special events, name labels for parties or networking events, gift tags, school labels and reward stickers, stock labels for rotation and stock management, and fun stickers for arts and crafts projects.

We also supply a range of brown Kraft labels; this range includes 54 label sizes and is also suitable for handwriting or printing with a laser or inkjet printer. Our Kraft labels have a natural brown colouring, while the ribbed finish adds a subtle touch of pattern and texture.

REMOVABLE COLOURED LABELS

If you’re looking for temporary coloured labels, you may want to take a look at our coloured removable labels (REMC). This range is the same as our coloured labels, except it features a removable adhesive instead of a permanent adhesive. Removable adhesives keep your coloured labels in place and don’t leave behind adhesive residue when you remove each label.

Removable coloured labels are a brilliant way to temporarily colour code stuff. They are especially popular with removal companies, manufacturers and storage facilities, auction houses, gift suppliers, and for general purpose organising and filing systems.

These products are made to order in boxes of 500 sheets and take up to five working days to be despatched after you order.

If you don’t need this many, you could try purchasing coloured labels and removable labels. Apply your coloured labels onto the removable labels to create coloured labels with a removable adhesive. Alternatively, you could purchase removable labels and add a colour coded element to your design.

FLUORESCENT LABELS

For those looking for a brighter burst of colour, our fluorescent labels range should do the trick. We have five neon colours; fluorescent red labels, fluorescent lemon / yellow labels, fluorescent orange labels, fluorescent green labels, and fluorescent magenta labels.

Fluorescent labels have a standard permanent adhesive and can be printed with laser printers or handwritten. We supply 66 label sizes in this range, including 8 sizes supplied in 25 sheet packs, 19 sizes available in 100 sheet packs, and a further 39 made to order sizes (available in 500 sheet boxes).

Fluorescent labels add a burst of colour that is hard to ignore. This makes these sticky labels especially popular when you need to highlight important information or really catch someone’s eye. Our fluorescent labels are often used as address labels and shipping labels, gift tags, marketing labels and promotional labels, information signs and warning notices, and as fun stickers for parties, events, or displays.

GOLD LABELS & SILVER LABELS

If you’re after a more luxurious look, our gold labels and silver labels add a subtle shimmer to any application. Each range contains 54 label sizes with 9 stocked in 25 sheet packs and the rest available to order in 500 sheet boxes.

All of our metallic labels are have standard permanent adhesives and an attractive satin gold finish. Made by applying a decorative gold coating onto clay-coated paper, our metallic labels have a beautifully smooth and bright surface.

You can handwrite or print your gold labels and silver labels using a laser printer. They are especially popular for use as marketing labels and promotional labels, as product labels and packaging labels on high value or gift items, or as address labels or gift tags on items that are intended to celebrate a special event or holiday. For example, they are often used as wedding labels and Christmas labels.

We also supply sets of metallic coloured star stickers. These sticky stars are available in three colours; gold, silver, and bronze. Each A4 sheet contains 280 stars measuring 12.7mm wide. Each pack contains 12 sheets of star stickers. We supply packs in each colour as well as an assorted pack containing gold stars, silver stars, and bronze stars. Our star stickers are perfect for reward stickers, arts and crafts projects, school stickers, stationery kits, and just for fun stickers!

With the end of the school year looming, now is the perfect time to order a stock of sticky school labels for all your end of term events. From Sports Day trophies to Certificates of Achievement, sticky labels are a brilliant way to create fun-filled awards to celebrate your pupils’ successes. They’re also a great way to get everything else organised before you depart for the summer holidays.

School Labels For Sport’s Day

If you’re holding a Sport’s Day event this year, you may need to make trophies and awards. We’ve got a range of coloured labels and fluorescent labels that are brilliant ways to create different awards for different placements (first, second, and third) or to create a set of colour coded team badges for all of the participants in each event.

We also supply gold labels and silver labels, which are perfect additions to trophies and certificates. Alternatively, you could use star stickers (in gold, silver, and bronze) to denote a particular level of achievement.

School Labels For Award Ceremonies

You may need certificates for pupils who have excelled or shown great improvement in a subject / activity. You can use our sticky labels to add on the recipient or category of a particular certificate. Our coloured labels, fluorescent labels, and metallic labels are a great way to denote categories or levels of achievement. You may also want to use our star stickers on rewards being handed out or feedback being given in the run up to the end of term / year.

School Labels For Your End Of Year Sort Out

Our coloured labels and fluorescent labels are a really quick and simple way to create a colour coding system for your files and paperwork. Alternatively, you could order paper labels to clearly label all of your files and folders so you know exactly where everything is when you return for the new school year.

If you need temporary labels that you can remove without damaging items when the sticky labels are no longer needed, we recommend our removable labels. Removable labels will stay firmly stuck while you need them before removing cleanly and easily when they are out of date or no longer required.

Perfect Your Party Invitations With Pitch Perfect Address Labels From Label Planet

Make Sure Your Invitations Get To Where They Need To Go With Address Labels That Rise To The Occasion

Whether you’re sending out invitations to friends and family to celebrate a big day or inviting customers and clients to a big event, it’s important to make sure that your invitations look the part – right down to the address labels you stick onto your envelopes.

There are thousands of different design and material choices to make when you choose your invitations. So you might not think about your address labels until it’s a bit too late.

If you’ve chosen a specific colour scheme or material for your invitations and your envelopes, you really won’t want to plaster a plain white label over the top – you’ll want address labels that fit your theme. This is where Label Planet comes in.

Address Labels To Add A Burst Of Colour, Some Shimmer & Shine, Or Text That Is Crisp & Clear

While you COULD use any self adhesive labels, some options are better suited to this particular purpose. Whether you need wedding labels, birthday labels, party labels, or event labels, there are plenty of ways to make sure that your address labels play their part in your big event.

Coloured Address Labels

The easiest way to create decorative address labels is to use coloured labels. We supply a range of colourful options including SEVEN pastel shades, FIVE fluorescent colours, TWO brilliant metallics, and ONE patterned Kraft paper. The pastel coloured labels and our Kraft labels can be printed with an inkjet printer or a laser printer (or handwritten!), while our fluorescent labels, gold labels, and silver labels can only be printed with a laser printer (or handwritten!).

Gloss Labels

Another way to add a decorative finish is to introduce a touch of shimmer and shine with gloss labels. Gloss labels are extremely effective at reflecting light, which gives them a bright and shiny finish. We supply two full gloss labels (one for laser printers only and one for inkjet printers and laser printers) as well as semi-gloss labels (for a more subtle shine).

High Resolution Matt Labels

Our premium quality paper labels have a high quality finish and are an excellent choice if you want to include high resolution artwork on your address labels (for example, if you want to include digital photographs in your design). These paper labels can be printed with laser printers or inkjet printers (or handwritten). They have a special coating that helps to produce perfectly crisp and clear designs.

Address Labels To Suit Any Colour Scheme

If you’ve got a very specific colour scheme, you might be struggling to find self adhesive labels to match. While you CAN have bespoke coloured labels made for you, this tends to be quite a costly option. Instead, we recommend avoid the problem altogether by using transparent address labels. Transparent labels allow your carefully chosen colours to show through. So you can address your invitations without covering up your design in the process.

At Label Planet, we supply three ranges of transparent address labels. If you are using an inkjet printer, you will need to choose our gloss clear labels, which are transparent labels with a bright and shiny finish. If you have a laser printer, you can choose transparent labels with a gloss finish OR a matt finish.

Superbly Swift Despatch & Delivery To Suit Any Schedule

Another problem that some people encounter when sourcing address labels for special events is time. Big events need a lot of organisation and it’s all too easy to forget about self adhesive labels. At Label Planet, however, we have a huge range of address labels available for same day despatch from stock in packs of 25 sheets – and options to upgrade to next day delivery.

Order Address Labels From Label Planet Today

We’ve created a specific section for all of our address labels to make it really quick and simple to see all of the options available and to pick the perfect self adhesive labels for your party invitations!

Celebrate The Arrival Of Spring With Suitably Seasonal Sticky Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

We’re Celebrating Spring With Sticky Labels That Are Perfect For The Season Of Spring!

Yesterday saw the occurrence of this year’s Spring Equinox; marking one of the two moments each year when the sun is directly above the equator (meaning night and day are – roughly – equal in length). The Spring Equinox has traditionally been used as a marker of the beginning of Spring – although the weather doesn’t always agree!

With this in mind, we thought we’d put together our top three sticky labels that are well-suited to the seasonal changes that happen with the arrival of Spring.

Add A Bloom Of Colour With Coloured Labels / Fluorescent Labels / Metallic Paper Labels / Kraft Labels

To brighten up any labelling project, choose one of our coloured labels to add a bloom (or burst) of colour. We have a variety of colourful options to choose from including:

Pastel Coloured Labels – suitable for use with inkjet and laser printers or for handwriting, these coloured labels are perfect for adding a subtle bloom of colour to any project and you can choose between seven different shades!

Fluorescent Labels – suitable for laser printers or for handwriting, these paper labels are brilliant if you prefer an eye-catching burst of colour to blow away the cobwebs of winter – choose between five neon colours to bright up your day!

Gold Labels / Silver Labels – suitable for laser printers or for handwriting, metallic paper labels offer a luxurious touch of shimmer and shine if you’re looking to step into spring with a hint of glamour.

Brown Kraft Labels – suitable for laser printers and inkjet printers or for handwriting, our Kraft labels have a ribbed finish, which adds a subtle touch of pattern and texture – ideal for any projects that need to have a natural, homemade feel.

Introduce A Subtle Shimmer Of Sunlight With Gloss Labels / Semi-Gloss Labels

If you simply can’t wait for summer, why not add a bit more brightness to your world with our gloss labels and semi-gloss labels. Made with high quality coatings, these sticky labels have a gloss (or semi-gloss) finish, which means that they reflect light REALLY efficiently, creating a bright and shiny appearance.

We supply a range of self adhesive labels with a gloss finish, including gloss paper labels, gloss waterproof labels, gloss transparent labels, and our semi-gloss paper labels – which offer a subtle alternative to a full gloss finish.

Avoid The Problems Of Spring Showers With Waterproof Labels / Splashproof Labels

Obviously, Spring has a tendency to bring with it a seasonal shower or two (or three or four or more), which means that you might be in need of sticky labels that can put up with the Great British Weather.

This is where our waterproof labels / splashproof labels come in; our waterproof labels are made with materials that can survive exposure to or even total submersion in water – especially our three “marine labels”, which are made with a special adhesive specifically designed for use in marine environments. Waterproof labels can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications where there’s a chance of a spring shower!

For a more budget friendly option, you could also try one of our splashproof options; these are paper labels with an additional coating that provides a thin layer of protection against minor exposure to water – meaning you can wipe your sticky labels clean and dry if they are lightly splashed with water. As paper labels, however, they are NOT a fully waterproof solution and will be damaged by prolonged or major exposure to water.

To produce fully waterproof labels OR splashproof labels, you will need to print your sticky labels using a laser printer; laser printers use a dry printing process to bond toner onto a surface (producing waterproof print), while inkjet printers tend to use water-based inks that will run or smudge if they get wet.

Order Sticky Labels From Label Planet This Spring

You can order online at any time by visiting www.labelplanet.co.uk; alternatively, you can get in touch with our Customer Service Team to place an order over the phone (call 01270 668076, 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday).

The World Of Label Planet Has Expanded Once Again!

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

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

  • 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

Get Crafty This Christmas With Christmas Labels From Label Planet

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

From dazzling address labels to seasonal product labels, sticky labels are a REALLY easy way to add a festive finish (and that all important personal touch) to anything that you’re making and/or sending to someone this Christmas. Plus with label templates and A4 labels from Label Planet, you can create your own seasonal set of Christmas labels that even Father Christmas and his elves would be proud of!

Whether you’re looking for printer labels that can be printed with your laser printer or inkjet printer OR blank labels that you can decorate with a handwritten message or hand drawn design, we’ve got plenty of label sizes and materials to help you find the perfect self adhesive labels for any Christmas project.

Picking the Perfect Christmas Label For Your Project

If you want a particular label material or label size, use our “List Of Label Materials” and “Search By Width”/“Search By Height” pages to find the perfect adhesive labels for your project.

Alternatively, use our Label Finder to narrow down your options; simply select a few things that you want your blank labels to be and the Finder will show you all of the options that match your requirements.

All of our A4 labels are grouped into product ranges; each range has its own range page, which gives more information about that particular range and lists the label sizes available for that particular material and/or adhesive.

The Self Adhesive Labels On Everyone’s Christmas List

While you can take your pick from our full range of self adhesive labels, there are few firm old favourites that are just perfect for the Christmas season:

Coloured Labels: a quick and simple way to add decorative Christmas labels to any item; choose between our seven shades of Pastel Labels (for a subtle bloom of Christmas colour) or our five shades of Fluorescent Labels (for a burst of festive fun).

Brown Kraft Labels: our Kraft paper labels have a ribbed finish that adds a subtle touch of pattern and texture; these brown labels are the perfect finishing touch for any items that need a homemade touch.

Gold Labels & Silver Labels: for a luxurious and festive feel, these blank labels provide a stylish and decorative background for your season’s greetings.

Transparent Labels: perfect if you need to add product labels onto pre-printed packaging, address labels onto specially designed envelopes, or gift tags onto wrapping paper; transparent labels allow you to add a festive finish to items WITHOUT covering up the seasonal designs already printed on those items.

Gloss Labels: add a seasonal shimmer to items with gloss labels; choose between gloss laser labels / photo quality gloss laser and inkjet labels (for shiny labels that are both merry and bright) and semi-gloss labels (for a more subtle shine).  

Premium Quality Paper Labels: these white labels are made with a specially coated paper that is ideal for printing high resolution artwork on blank sticky labels.

Despatch Information For (Pre) Christmas Delivery Of Your Festive Labels

If you intend to stick your self adhesive labels onto items that you need to deliver to someone else BEFORE Christmas, you’ll need to order as early as possible to leave enough time for your blank labels to be delivered to you, for you to design and print a label template onto your printer labels, for you to apply your sticky labels onto your items, and to despatch your labelled items so that they arrive before the big day.

Orders of 200+ sheets are sent via next working day carrier service (where stock is available; delivery to Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, and the Channel Islands is via 2 day carrier service). Smaller orders are despatched via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard. First class items are NOT guaranteed to arrive the next day and so we strongly recommend upgrading your order (online or by phone) to a next day delivery service.

If you need to order 500 sheets or more, we recommend contacting our Customer Service Team to check stock availability; paper labels are generally kept in stock at our warehouse for same day despatch, while other items are made to order and have a lead time of at least 5 working days for despatch.

Label Planet’s Top Autumn Labels For Autumnal Applications

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

On Friday, the Autumn Equinox takes place, which traditionally marks the change from summer to autumn, so we thought we’d take a look at a few of our product ranges that are well suited to all sorts of autumnal applications.

Coloured Labels & Kraft Labels
With the nights drawing in and the weather turning (even more) wintery, it’s the perfect time to add a bit of colour to your label applications; we’ve got seven pastel shades to add a subtle touch of colour (including our superbly autumnal crimson-red labels, orange-red labels, yellow labels, and brown Kraft labels) and five fluorescents if you’re looking for a burst of colour to brighten up the autumn months. Our pastel coloured labels can be printed with all kinds of desktop printers (inkjet or laser) or handwritten for that truly personal finishing touch, while our fluorescent labels can be printed with laser printers or handwritten.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something to finish of your homemade arts and crafts projects, you should definitely take a look at our range of brown Kraft labels; these wonderfully decorative labels have a ribbed finish, which gives them a subtle touch of pattern and texture, while their natural brown colouring is perfect for any craft project (as well as the autumn season). These labels can also be printed with laser printers or inkjet printers and are also perfect for handwritten (or hand drawn) designs.

Freezer Labels & Wash Off Labels
In addition to taking on some crafty projects to avoid the gloom of the winter months, you may also be turning your attention to the creation of seasonally savoury and sweet dishes for the colder days ahead. With this in mind, you may find yourself in need of some self-adhesive labels that you can use to label up your ingredient containers and all of your bottles, jars, boxes, and bowls that you need to use to hold all of your delicious delights!

We have two products that are particularly useful for food and drink applications – namely our Freezer Labels (ideal for all those foods that you need to store away for a later date) and our Wash Off Labels (perfect for labelling all of the containers you need for ingredients and the finished product).

Our freezer labels are made with a special adhesive developed specifically for deep freeze conditions; standard adhesives often fail to sustain – or even create – an adhesive bond at cold temperatures, while deep freeze adhesives can be used to label all kinds of items that are already frozen or that will be frozen at a later date. Our freezer labels will work at temperatures of between -40°C to +60°C and are supplied as matt white paper labels (with that all-important deep freeze adhesive) that can be handwritten or printed with a laser printer.

Please note that we do NOT recommend printing our freezer labels with an inkjet printer as inkjet inks are generally water-based, which means your print will run or smudge if it comes into contact with condensation or other sources of water.

Our wash off labels, meanwhile, are also made with a specially developed adhesive designed to create a strong permanent adhesive bond that will break down when exposed to water; this means that you can safely and securely label containers before washing them (to cleanly remove the label without damaging your containers) so that you can reuse and relabel your containers again and again (and again!). Our wash off labels can be handwritten or printed with any desktop printer (laser or inkjet) and are matt white paper labels with that special wash off adhesive.

Splashproof Labels & Waterproof Labels
Finally, if you’re looking for some heavy duty labels that can withstand a bit of exposure to the great British weather during the autumn months, you might want to try our Waterproof Labels. All of these labels are made with synthetic materials (polyester, polyethylene, or polyolefin) and are therefore completely waterproof; this makes these labels ideal for any indoor or outdoor application where they might be exposed to (or indeed immersed in) water – a useful property if you’re looking for labels that can be used during the autumn months. Three of our waterproof labels (MWP, MWPE, and MWPO) are made with a special marine adhesive that meets the BS5609 part 2 standard for marine immersion, which makes these labels perfect for outside applications (and all of the environmental challenges that go along with being outside during a British autumn).

All of our waterproof labels MUST be printed using a LASER printer to produce fully waterproof labels (i.e. so that the labels AND the print you add onto them are both waterproof); laser printers use a dry printing process to bond a dry powder (toner) to the medium being printed, which produces waterproof print – inkjet printers, however, tend to use inks that are water-based, which means your print will run or smudge if it gets wet (or even if it is simply handled a lot).

You can print both our MWPE and MWPO labels with a laser printer or an inkjet printer but only a laser printer will produce waterproof print. To create waterproof print with an inkjet printer you would either need to find a way to add a protective layer over the top of your print (for example, by sticking a transparent label over the top) or you would need to source specialist inks and a printer that can produce waterproof inkjet print.

As a cheaper alternative, we offer “splashproof” labels; these labels are made with paper – meaning that they are NOT waterproof – but have a gloss or semi-gloss coating that offers limited protection against water, which allows them to be wiped clean and dry if they are accidentally splashed with a bit of water. So, if you don’t need a fully waterproof solution, our GW and SG labels offer budget friendly alternatives that will do the job you need them to just as well as our more durable synthetic labels.

Like our waterproof labels, you will need to print these labels using a laser printer (and not an inkjet printer).
