Find Your Perfect Match* With The Label Planet Label Finder

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

* Okay, we can’t find you your perfect match but we CAN help you find the perfect self adhesive labels for your label application.

Choosing the right self adhesive labels can turn out to be a bit more complicated than you’d like – especially if your label application involves some particularly tricky requirements.

If you’ve never wandered through the world of self adhesive labels before, it can be a bit bewildering when you realise exactly how many different choices you have to make. However, you DON’T need to be an expert in sticky labels to pick the perfect label! We’ve put together all of our experience of working in the labelling industry (and helping customers to find the self adhesive labels that are “just right”) and used it to create our LABEL FINDER.

The Label Planet Label Finder is designed to make the process of picking the perfect label as easy as possible so anyone can find the right sticky labels for their project in a few short clicks.

Using The Label Finder To Find Your Perfect Self Adhesive Labels

Instead of having to pick out the perfect label from ALL of the self adhesive labels available from Label Planet, the Label Finder creates a short list of options based on the sticky labels that are actually suitable for your application.

All you have to do is select a few key requirements for your self adhesive labels and the Label Finder will return a list of the sticky labels that match those requirements. For example, if you need removable labels you can enter this as a requirement and the Label Finder will ONLY show you self adhesive labels with a removable adhesive. If you need waterproof labels you can set this as a requirement and the Label Finder will show you all of our sticky labels that are also waterproof.

What Information Can I Use To Find The Perfect Self Adhesive Labels For My Project?

The Label Finder allows you to narrow down your choices using the following requirements:

  • LABEL USE: we’ve created sets of “recommended labels” for a variety of applications, so you can use this option to give you an idea of what sort of self adhesive labels you should be looking at for a specific kind of application.
  • PRINTER TYPE: use this option if you’ve only got a laser printer OR an inkjet printer. Some of our products can only be printed with one type of printer and are grouped as laser labels (print with a laser printer) or inkjet labels (print with an inkjet printer).
  • LABEL SHAPE: use this option if you know you definitely want rectangular labels, round labels, square labels, oval labels, or CD labels / DVD labels.
  • COLOUR: use this option to show a list of the label sizes available in a particular colour.
  • NUMBER PER SHEET: use this option if you’re looking for a particular label size but you can only remember how many sticky labels were on each sheet.
  • AVERY TEMPLATE CODE: use this option to see if we supply any self adhesive labels that are compatible with (use the same label size and layout as) Avery labels / label templates that you currently use.
  • MATERIAL: use this option to narrow down your choice to paper labels OR one of our synthetic waterproof materials.
  • ADHESIVE: use this option to narrow down your choices based on whether you need permanent labels, removable labels, or a label adhesive suitable for a particular application / environment (e.g. high tack labels, opaque labels, void labels, wash off labels, marine labels, or freezer labels).
  • FINISH: use this option to show a list of sticky labels with the type of finish that you prefer (choose from gloss labels, semi-gloss labels, and matt labels).
  • WATERPROOF: use this option to create a list that only contains waterproof labels.
  • LABEL WIDTH: use this option if your self adhesive labels MUST have a specific label width.
  • LABEL HEIGHT: use this option if your self adhesive labels MUST have a specific label height.
  • LABEL CODE: use this option to view a particular product that you’ve ordered from Label Planet before.
  • LABEL PLANET SIZE CODE: use this option to view all of the material options available for a particular label size.
  • LABEL PLANET MATERIAL CODE: use this option to view all of the label sizes available for a particular label material.

How Do I Get To The Label Planet Label Finder?

To use the Label Finder, you simply need to click on the big red and white “Label Finder” button near the top of our website; this button appears on every page so you can always get to the Label Finder no matter where you are on our website!

Find The Perfect Label For You With The Label Planet Label Finder

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

With so many different product options available, it can be quite confusing to sort out which labels are suitable for your particular label application (and which are definitely NOT the labels for you). While we are more than happy to chat to customers to discuss their requirements, we know that sometimes it’s more convenient to use an online guide (especially if you need to place an order outside of office hours).

This is where the Label Planet LABEL FINDER comes into play!

We’ve added ALL of our label products to our Label Finder (along with their defining features) so that you can simply select the things you want your labels to be and the Finder will present you with a shortlist of the Label Planet products that meet your requirements.

For example, you can search for a particular label shape, size, colour, finish, material, and/or adhesive OR you can narrow your search to labels that are (or aren’t) waterproof, that are compatible with a particular Avery code, or that are compatible with your type of printer.

You can also use the Label Finder to find out if a particular label size is available with alternative material choices (including different materials, adhesives, colours, and finishes), or to take a look at the label options that we think are particularly well-suited for a particular label application.

Whether you only have a vague idea of what you want your labels to be (for example, you KNOW you want yellow labels, or waterproof labels, or labels that are about 10cm wide – but nothing else) OR you have a lot of specific requirements (for example, you need labels that are gloss labels AND transparent labels AND waterproof labels AND they measure 38.1mm in height) the Label Finder is a quick and easy way to get a better idea of 1) whether or not we actually supply labels that meet your requirements and 2) how many different options there are for you to choose from that will actually do the job you need them to do.

Of course, you can always get in touch with us if you need further advice or assistance with picking the perfect label for your label application. Our customer service team is on hand by phone or by email (our office hours are 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday) AND you can also take advantage of our free sample service to try out a few different options to help make sure you pick the right product for you.

Need Help Choosing The Right Labels? Try These Helpful Extras From Label Planet To Find The Perfect Label For The Job!

Monday, January 16th, 2017

If you’re looking for labels, you might not have realised how many different options are out there, which can make picking the perfect label a bit of a problem. Here at Label Planet, we’ve added a few helpful resources to our website that you can use to make sure that you choose the right label for your specific label application.

The Label Finder
Our label finder is designed to create a shortlist of options for you to choose from based on the information that you enter; all you need to do is select the specifications that you need your labels to match and the finder will automatically create a list of Label Planet labels that meet those requirements.

You can narrow down your options by entering the type of printer you want to use, the shape and/or size of label you want to use, any preferences you have for the material/colour/adhesive/finish, if you need waterproof labels or not, or you can use our “Label Use” category to see a list of products that we recommend for a particular label application.

Search By Pages & Label Lists
Our search by pages help you to find out what products are available from Label Planet, based on a specific requirement that you have – for example, you can search by number of labels per sheet, by label width or height, or by Avery code – to see if we have a label size that is the same as the Avery labels/template that you already use.

Alternatively, you can use our label lists to view all of the label products that we supply that are a certain “type” of label, such as “All Colours”, “All Transparent”, “All Removable” etc.

Range Pages (and Material Specification Sheets)
Each of our products has its own range page, which provides you with more information about each particular range, including key facts (material, adhesive, printer compatibility etc), product information, common and popular uses, and a material specification sheet (which has more detailed information about the materials used to make each range).

Samples
We also operate a free sample request service so you can request a couple of options that you think will be suitable and test them to determine whether or not they really are the right choice. If you really aren’t sure which labels would be suitable, you can simply fill in our online Sample Request form (or give us a call) to let us know what your label application is and the kind of labels you want so that we can send you a selection of the labels that we believe are the best options for you to choose from – all you need to do is provide us with as much information as you can about your application and we’ll work out which labels should be the right ones.

Get In Touch
If all else fails and you’re still confused, remember you can always contact our Customer Service Team to discuss your requirements and get some assistance with choosing the right labels for your label application.

We also have a few extra TOP TIPS to consider when you are choosing labels:
Budget: if you have to keep to a strict budget, our paper labels will ALWAYS be the cheapest options to choose from, labels in a different colour/adhesive/finish will cost a little bit more, and our synthetic materials (polyester, polyethylene, and vinyl) will always be the most expensive options. We operate a price break system so it might be worth buying a slightly larger order than you need immediately (and storing the leftovers for future use) to save you a bit of money in the long run.
Quantity: if you only need a few labels you will need to make sure you look at our STOCKED items; these products have a minimum order quantity of 25 sheets and are listed in the TOP section of our range pages. Our non-stocked items are either made to order items or are kept in stock at our warehouse – these products have a minimum order quantity of 500 sheets, which may be way more than you need.

Visit our website to find all of the helpful extras listed above; you can use our List of All Labels page to see all of the label ranges available from Label Planet (along with a link to the range page for each), or use our Contact Us page to find out how you can get in touch for a bit more help and advice on choosing the right label for your specific label application.

Finders Keepers – Use Our Label Finder To Find Labels That You’ll Definitely Want To Keep!

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Finding the right label for the job in hand can be a difficult task – especially with so many choices on offer. There are different sizes and shapes, materials and adhesives, which can make it very confusing to try to find the one that’s “just right” for you.

Here at Label Planet, we supply over 3000 different label products across a range of over 100 sizes and over 30 different material options – which means we SHOULD have a label to suit almost every application, if only you can find out which is “the one”!

This is where our brand new Label Finder comes in handy; simply enter your requirements and our Label Finder will create a list of labels that are suitable based on the information you have entered. You can then refine your search using the categories provided, request a sample to give a few of the possible options a try, or simply go ahead and place an order!

For example, you can use any of the following requirements as a starting point:

  • Label Use
    While we couldn’t possibly list ALL of the label applications that our customers might need to find labels for, we have done our best to come up with a comprehensive list of label applications as a basic starting point. We have then selected the label products that we believe are the most suitable for these applications as a guide for customers who want some extra assistance in choosing the right label – although, you are, of course, perfectly free to ignore our suggestions and choose an alternative that you think is better!
  • Printer Type
    Some of our label materials can only be printed with an inkjet printer OR a laser printer (while the rest can be printed with either); if you use your printer as one of the filters in your label search, the Finder will automatically remove any label products that your printer won’t actually be able to print.
  • Shape
    If you know you want a particular shape, use this filter to view all of the label sizes and material combinations available for that shape.
  • Colour
    This filter will allow you to view only the label sizes that are available in the colour you want to use.
  • Number Per Sheet
    This option is particularly useful if you’ve got a sheet of labels from somewhere but you’ve either forgotten where they came from OR you want to see if we have a compatible product – and you don’t have a code or specific information to help narrow down your search.
  • Avery Template Code
    If you’ve already got Avery labels, or you want to use an existing Avery template, you can use this filter to see all of the Label Planet products (if any) that are compatible with the Avery code you have in mind – you can then use your Avery template to print onto your Label Planet labels, without having to redesign your template.
  • Material
    To find out what label sizes and material options are available for a particular label material, select from the four options in this filter. This option is ideal if you know that you only want to look at paper labels or if you know that you need a long-lasting, durable label (in which case a polyester or polyethylene option would be best).
  • Adhesive
    If you know that you definitely want a permanent adhesive (so your labels won’t come off), a removable adhesive (for temporary labels that won’t do any damage when they are removed), or an adhesive that is suitable for a more unusual environment (e.g. deep freeze or outdoor conditions), you can select the appropriate type of adhesive to see what label sizes and material options are available.
  • Finish
    You may have a firm idea of what you want your labels to look like; to view products that have a bright, shiny finish select “Gloss” from this filter, select “Matt” to view only those products that have a plain, non-shiny finish, or choose “Semi-Gloss” for a compromise between the two.
  • Waterproof
    For label applications where you need your labels to be able to survive exposure to or immersion in water, you can choose to add “waterproof” as a requirement so that the Finder will only show you products that are suitable for use in these conditions; for example, you may need labels for use outdoors or product labels for items that will be stored and/or used in the bathroom or kitchen.
  • Width
    Use this option if you know that your labels need to be a specific width; selecting this option will show you all of the label products we supply that have the exact width that you need.
  • Height
    Likewise, if you need your labels to be a particular height, the Finder can instantly narrow down your options to show only the label products that have the specific height you need.

If the exact width or height that you want to use is not available, you can also use these two options to see if there is a suitable alternative that will work just as well for your label application.

  • Label Code
    If you want to look up a particular product or you want to re-order a product that you’ve bought from us in the past, you can select the specific Label Planet code from the list to instantly bring up a direct link to the product page for that label product.
  • Label Planet Size Code
    You can use this option if you have a specific Label Planet label size in mind (whether you already buy them from us or you know that a particular size is the one you need) and you want to see what material options are available for that size.
  • Label Planet Material Code
    This option is useful if you already buy labels from us in a particular material but want to know what other label sizes are available in that material.

To get started with your search for the perfect Label Planet label head on over to our Label Finder page; for more information about any of our label ranges, take a look at our List Of All Materials Page, which will direct you to more detailed information about the materials and adhesive options listed in the Label Finder.

Lost In The Land Of Label Planet Labels? Try Our Label Finder To Help You Find Your Way To The Perfect Label!

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Here at Label Planet, we know it can be difficult to find the perfect label for your application – especially once you realise there are far more options to choose from than you first thought!

To help you out, we’ve put together a simple Label Finder, which does all the hard work for you!

Label Finder
As you can see, all you need to do is enter the things that you know you want your labels to be and our Label Finder will give you a list of labels that match your requirements. You can then further refine this list (by choosing more options from the categories provided), request a sample of the label products that you’re most interested in (so you can make sure that those labels will work in your application or to help to visualise which is the best option for your project), or go ahead and visit the product page of the labels the Finder has found for you to place an order.

  • Use the “Label Use” category to view label products that we recommend for specific label applications
    (remember, these are only suggestions and you are completely free to choose another label size or material if you like!)
  • Use the “Printer Type” category to view label products that are compatible with your printer
    (some of our labels are only for use with laser printers or inkjet printers, while others are suitable for use with both – if you enter the type of printer you have, the Finder will instantly exclude any labels that aren’t compatible with your printer)
  • Select as many categories as you like – the more information you provide, the shorter your shortlist of options will be!
    (each time you make a selection the Finder will automatically exclude any label products that don’t meet your requirements, so you may find that if you are too specific you don’t end up finding many (or any) suitable labels; you can play around with the different filters to give yourself more options to choose from)

If you are struggling to find a suitable label using the Label Finder, it may be that we don’t have the exact label size, shape, or material that you are looking for; you can try altering your choices to see if we have a suitable alternative label that will do the job just as well or you can contact our Customer Service Team to discuss the requirements of your specific label application.

Introducing A Quick & Easy Way To Find The Perfect Label For You – The Label Planet Label Finder!

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Yes, we’re delighted to announce that our website now features a fantastically easy way for customers to find a label that is perfect for their individual label application.

Whether you know that you need some labels for a new project but you’ve no idea where to get started or you simply want a quick way to find a shortlist of options that you can choose from, our Label Finder makes it extremely easy to narrow down your choices until you’re left with the perfect label.

It can be quite confusing trying to find the right label for the job you have in mind – especially if you’re discovering that there are a lot more choices than you thought there would be and you’re unsure of which ones are best for you – so we’ve designed a Label Finder that will help to make it a whole lot simpler (and far less stressful) for our customers to find the perfect label to suit their requirements.

With our Label Finder, you simply enter the conditions that you know your labels need to match and the Finder will filter out any products that don’t match to leave you with a short(er) list of label products that would be suitable for your needs. You can then further narrow down this list by selecting other options that you think would be suitable for your particular purpose.

For example, you might know that you want your labels to be a specific width, height, or shape, so you can enter these details to narrow down the label products that we have to match (and see the different material options available). If you know that you need your labels to meet a particular requirement as part of your label application, you can also filter your search further by requesting labels that are a particular colour, made of a particular material or adhesive (e.g. if you know you need permanent labels or removable labels), that have a particular finish, or that are waterproof.

Alternatively, you may already have some labels and you want to see if we supply a compatible product (perhaps in a different, or better quality, material or adhesive option); you can use our Avery Template Code option to find products that match the Avery labels that you’ve already got OR use our Number Per Sheet and Width/Height options to see if we have a compatible label size for the labels you need to replace.

We highly recommend entering your printer type to narrow down your options; some of our label materials are suitable for use with a laser printer only or with an inkjet printer only, which means you can instantly remove label products from your search that aren’t compatible with your printer. You can also use our Label Use category to refine your search based on the label products that we would recommend for specific label applications.

While we couldn’t possibly list ALL of the possible label applications that our customers might need to find labels for, we have done our best to come up with a comprehensive list of label applications that offer a basic starting point for a search. We have selected a number of label products that we believe are the most suitable for the label applications listed in this category as a guide for customers who want some extra assistance in choosing the right label – although, you are, of course, perfectly free to ignore our suggestions and choose an alternative that you think is better for your label application!

You can also use our Label Finder to find the product page for a label that you have bought from us in the past – simply select the code listed on your package or paperwork from the “Label Code” category – or you can see what other sizes are available in a material you’re already using (by entering the Material Code) or see what other material options are available for a label size that you already use (by entering the Label Planet Size Code).

Visit our Label Finder page today to see if you can find the perfect label for your label application; remember, you can always use our free Sample Request service to test a couple of label sizes or material options to see which one is best for your application, or you can get in touch with our Customer Service Team for further advice or to discuss any questions or queries you might have.
