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!

Get Craftily Creative With Kraft Labels From Label Planet

What Are Kraft Labels?

Sticky labels made with a Kraft paper…

What Is Kraft Paper?

Kraft paper uses paper pulp produced by the Kraft process. This process has a number of benefits and advantages over alternative methods, including:

  • The ability to process wood from almost every species of tree.
  • A process of breaking down lignin that doesn’t damage the cellulose fibres in the process (lignin is a natural glue that holds wood fibres together).
  • The ability to easily separate and reuse unwanted waste elements.
  • The production of stronger and higher quality pulp (“Kraft” is a German word for strength).
  • The ability to produce paper with longer fibres, giving the paper greater elasticity, strength, and tear resistance.
  • A more environmentally friendly method of processing wood.

Kraft papers are usually created using unbleached pulp, which avoids the use of industrial strength bleaching agents in the manufacturing process. Kraft paper are therefore usually brown in colour. This is the natural colouring of the pulp use to make the paper.

What Are Label Planet’s Kraft Labels Like?

Our Kraft labels are made with a Kraft paper and a permanent adhesive. They are suitable for use with laser printers and inkjet printers OR for handwriting.

The Kraft paper has a ribbed finish, which adds a subtle texture and pattern of light and dark stripes. We believe this adds a decorative twist to the natural colouring of our Kraft labels. This makes them the perfect choice for any crafty project where you really want your sticky labels to look the part.

What Crafts Can I Create With Kraft Labels?

Kraft labels are brilliant for all sorts of crafty projects. They’re especially popular for use as address labels and product labels when our customers want their parcels and packaging to have a truly home-made touch. Some want a finishing touch with a “home-made” and personal feel. Others are labelling items made with natural ingredients or hand-made crafting techniques and want their sticky labels to match their methods.

They’re also perfect for use on personal projects at home. For example, they’re a great way to get your stuff organised in a more decorative way. They’re also perfect for making your own gifts, cards, or gift tags to celebrate a special day for a special someone (or someones!).

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

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

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.

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
  • LP189/25: 189 blank labels per sheet, measuring 25.4mm wide by 10mm high with rounded corners
  • LP15/51SQ: 15 square labels per sheet, measuring 51mm by 51mm with rounded corners
  • LP35/37SQ: 35 square labels per sheet, measuring 37mm by 37mm with rounded corners

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.

Find these labels here: Coloured Labels (Pastels + Kraft) // Fluorescent Labels // Kraft Labels

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.

Find these labels here: Freezer Labels // Wash Off Labels

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).

Find these labels here: Splashproof & Waterproof Labels

Spring Is Here (& So Is The Rain) So Why Not Try Some Colour (ed Labels) To Make Your Things A Little Less Duller?!

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Monday brought the Spring Equinox and with it weather that feels anything but spring-like so we thought it was a good time to take a closer look at our coloured labels – perfect for adding a burst of colour to brighten up even the gloomiest of “spring” days.

Here at Label Planet, our coloured labels remain some of our firm favourites because they’re a really simple way to add a bit of decoration (and fun) to any labelling application – and we’ve got colours to suit all sorts of projects, whether you’re looking for a luxurious finish, a natural homemade feel, a gentle bloom of colour, or an eye catching display that won’t go unnoticed.

All of our coloured labels are supplied on A4 sheets and are suitable for printing or for handwriting.

Our colours include:

SEVEN PASTEL SHADES

Crimson-Red, Orange-Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Cream, Pink

Our pastel coloured labels are made with a coloured paper with either a permanent adhesive or a removable adhesive. Both are suitable for use with inkjet printers and laser printers or for handwriting. We have 20 label sizes available for same day despatch from stock (in 25 sheet packs) and a further 43 label sizes available to order. These labels are ideal for adding a gentle burst of colour that adds a subtle touch of decoration to any labelled item.

FIVE NEON FLUORESCENTS

Red, Orange, Lemon (Yellow), Green, Magenta

Our fluorescent labels are made with a fluorescent coloured paper and a permanent adhesive; these labels are suitable for use with laser printers only or for handwriting. We have 8 label sizes available for same day despatch from stock and a further 51 label sizes available to order. These labels are perfect if you want to create eye-catching, attention-grabbing labels that are impossible to miss.

TWO SEMI-GLOSS METALLICS

Gold, Silver

Our metallic labels are made with a metallic colour paper with a textured, semi-gloss finish and a permanent adhesive; these labels are suitable for use with laser printers only or for handwriting. We have 9 label sizes available for same day despatch from stock and a further 15 label sizes available to order. These labels are a lovely way to create high quality, luxury labels or to add a glimmer of a shimmer to extra special items.

PATTERNED KRAFT

Brown Ribbed Kraft Paper

Our Kraft labels are made with a brown kraft paper with a ribbed finish and a permanent adhesive; these labels can be printed with inkjet printers and laser printers or can be handwritten. These labels are a brilliant way to add natural colouring with a subtle touch of pattern and texture; our Kraft labels are especially popular for labelling homemade or gift items.

You can find ALL of our coloured labels on our COLOURED LABELS page. Remember, you can also request a sample of our labels so you can make sure that you’ve found the perfect colour for you!

‘Tis The Season For Christmas Parties & That Means Christmas Name Badges & Table Place Cards!

Monday, December 5th, 2016

Whether you simply want to add a temporary touch of Christmas magic to badges already worn by your employees or you’re in charge of planning a Christmas event and need name badges and/or table place cards for everyone, we’ve got the perfect labels for you!

You might be looking for a professional finish to suit a Christmas networking event or an exhibition. Alternatively, you might be planning a massive Christmas party and need suitably seasonal badges and place cards to get everyone organised!

If you are selecting labels to be used as name badges for people to wear (i.e. that will be stuck directly onto people’s clothing), you need to bear in mind that adhesives don’t tend to work as effectively on fabrics as they do on other surfaces. So, while you might be tempted to go for a removable adhesive (because you obviously want the labels to come off without damaging people’s clothing once the event is over), you may actually find that this type of adhesive isn’t strong enough to keep the labels on during your event. Most people use one of our standard permanent adhesives for this particular purpose to ensure that the labels will remain in place for the event but then peel off easily when they are no longer needed.

All of our labels can be printed with standard desktop printers BUT you can also write on our products – so you can print a Christmas design onto your labels along with a blank space for guests to write in their own name.

We’ve put together a shortlist of our most popular labels used for making name badges and place cards, to give you a bit of inspiration and/or a starting point for your own event:

Matt White Paper Labels
Our most basic (and budget friendly) option on the list, these labels are a good choice if you want a simple, clean background for your badges or place cards. You can add just the name of each guest or you can overprint the plain white background with the full colour Christmas design of your choosing.

Premium Quality Paper Labels
For a slightly more professional and decorative finish, these labels are made with a high quality paper with a special coating that produces a smooth finish and excellent print resolution – ideal for a professional look or for printing high quality images/designs (for example, if you wish to include photographs as part of your design).

Coloured Labels / Fluorescent Labels
If you’re after something that’s a bit more FUN or suits the colouring of your Christmas theme, why not try our seven pastel colours (for a subtle touch of colour) or our five fluorescents (for a not-so-subtle burst of colour).

Gold Labels / Silver Labels
Highly popular for the Christmas season, these two labels are perfect additions for any seasonal project. The labels have a semi-gloss textured finish that gives them a subtle shine that is both luxurious and a perfect fit for glittering Christmas events.

Gloss Paper Labels
If you’re after a touch of seasonal shimmer, using one of our paper labels with a gloss finish is a brilliant way to create decorative and/or professional labels with that special finishing touch. You can choose between gloss labels for laser printers, photo gloss labels for laser printers and inkjet printers (perfect if you want to include high resolution images or photographs in your design), or semi-gloss labels for laser printers (for a more subtle finish).

Kraft Labels
Perfect for use on your table place cards, these labels are made with brown Kraft paper with a ribbed finish, which creates a wonderfully natural appearance with just a touch of pattern and texture. Ideal if you want to create labels that have that warm homemade finish to create a personal welcome for each and every guest at your event.

With Halloween just two weeks away and Bonfire Night not that far off, you might well be in the midst of planning a fantastically frightening Halloween party or a spectacular night of (bon)fires and fireworks for Bonfire Night – and, if you’re making your own invitations or decorations this year, we might well have a few labels that will give your holiday projects that perfect finishing touch!

KRAFT LABELS
These labels are made with brown Kraft paper that has a ribbed finish for a brilliantly subtle touch of pattern and texture. Kraft paper is a wonderful addition to any homemade project, whether you’re making cards and invitations or party decorations. The natural finish of these labels makes them an especially perfect choice for bonfire themed projects.
All of our Kraft Labels can be handwritten or printed with either an inkjet printer or a laser printer.

TRANSPARENT LABELS
Our range of transparent labels might not seem like an obvious choice for Halloween or Bonfire Night BUT they’re an excellent way to add a creative twist to your projects by producing a “floating” effect for your designs. You can use them to make address labels with Halloween or Bonfire Night inspired designs OR use them to add addresses to invitations that have been printed with a Halloween or Bonfire Night theme (so you don’t have to plaster a massive label all over your carefully chosen stationery).

Our removable transparent labels are also a perfect way to create temporary decorations that you can stick around your venue, on walls and doors, windows and floors, and any furniture in between! For example, you could make cobwebs, blood stains, or ghostly apparitions to give your Halloween party a truly terrifying tone OR create your own indoor firework display to match the events going on outside on Bonfire Night.
Our transparent labels include options for permanent and removable adhesives, gloss and matt finishes, and inkjet labels and laser labels.

COLOURED LABELS & FLUORESCENT COLOURED LABELS
If you’re looking for labels that will fit into your holiday colour scheme, we’ve got some perfect options for both Halloween and Bonfire Night. For a more subtle tone, you could try our pastel colours, which include crimson-red, orange-red, and yellow for that autumnal feel (as well as blue and green if you’re going for more unusual Halloween colours).

Alternatively, if you want to make sure your party or event is full of colour, you should definitely check out our range of fluorescent colours, which bring an instant burst of creative colour to any project – we’ve got options for red, orange, yellow, green, and magenta, which should come in handy for both your Halloween and Bonfire Night events.
We supply SEVEN pastel colours, which can be handwritten or printed with either an inkjet printer or a laser printer, and FIVE fluorescent colours, which can be handwritten or printed with a laser printer.

GOLD LABELS & SILVER LABELS
Firm favourites for the autumn (and, we’ll be honest, winter) season, our gold paper labels and silver paper labels have a wonderful semi-gloss textured finish that has a subtle touch of festive sparkle – which makes them ideal for this time of year, whether you’re trying to add a supernatural shimmer to your Halloween festivities or a flame-like finish to your Bonfire Night celebrations.
These labels can be handwritten or printed with a laser printer.

Brighten Up The Autumn Months With Our Fantastic Selection Of Coloured Labels

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

With the autumn months (and weather) on the way, it’s a good time to take a look at our brilliant range of coloured labels, which are a wonderfully quick and easy way to add a burst or bloom of colour to any labelling application or project that you’re working on this autumn.

Whether you’re in a creative mood or you’re looking for an easy way to brighten things up a bit, coloured labels are an instant way to add a colourful background to whatever design or information you want to add to your labels.

At Label Planet, we have a range of coloured labels, which can be printed with standard desktop printers or can be handwritten (for the truly creative types out there!); our coloured range includes seven pastel colours (for a gentle background colour), five fluorescent colours (for a vibrant eye-catching burst of colour), two metallic colours (for a luxurious touch of shine and texture), and a fantastic brown Kraft paper (which has a ribbed finish for extra pattern and texture).

Pastel Colours
Choose between: Crimson Red, Orange-Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink, Cream
Suitable for use with laser printers, inkjet printers, and for handwriting.
Ideal for: adding a coloured background that introduces a subtle touch of colour to your items (without being too overwhelming); our crimson red, orange-red, and yellow pastel colours are particularly seasonal if you’re looking for an autumnal feel to suit a seasonal theme.

Fluorescent Colours
Choose between: Red, Orange, Lemon, Green, Magenta
Suitable for use with laser printers, and for handwriting.
Ideal for: getting attention! These fluorescent colours are designed to attract attention and make your design/text and items really stand out from the crowd; these labels are perfect if you need to make your items as eye-catching as possible or if you want to give your items a dazzling boost of colour. Again, the red, orange, and lemon (yellow) options are the most seasonal colours to go for (and the orange is particularly ideal if you’re thinking ahead to Halloween festivities!).

Metallic Colours
Choose between: Gold, Silver
Suitable for use with laser printers, and for handwriting.
Ideal for: adding a luxurious touch of shimmer and shine; our metallic labels have an attractive semi-gloss, textured finish, which makes them a gorgeous addition to any project that needs to have a highly decorative finish.

Brown Kraft Paper
Suitable for use with laser printers, inkjet printers, and for handwriting.
Ideal for: projects of a crafty kind! Kraft paper has long been a staple of the arts and crafts world and is a brilliant material for use on homemade and handcrafted items – whether you are selling items to customers or making gifts for friends and family. The brown ribbed paper has lovely colouring, with a gentle touch of pattern and texture, which gives it a wonderful finish that is just perfect for adding a natural and autumnal feel to your items.

Our coloured labels are available either in packs of 25 sheets (stocked sizes only) or boxes of 500 sheets; if you wat to mix and match items to get a range of colours and label sizes, we highly recommend getting in touch with us as we may be able to offer you a better price based on the exact assortment that you would like to order.

(Please note, we cannot split a pack or box between two or more sizes and/or colours, although we do offer some “Assorted Packs” within our range of pastel coloured labels.)
