Happy #TowelDay From Label Planet (P.S. Don’t Panic But We’ve Updated Our Privacy Policy Too!) #GDPR

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Today is Towel Day – set up in tribute to Douglas Adams, author of the brilliant Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy. We hope you’re all having a wonderful time and spending the day knowing exactly where you’ve put your towel.

Don’t Panic – It’s The Label Planet Guide To Finding Out If We’re GDPR Compliant.

It probably hasn’t escaped your notice that today also sees the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation – or, quite mercifully, GDPR for short.

We’ve always made it a priority to safeguard the privacy and security of our customers’ information. We also made it our policy to use marketing emails and letters sparingly, sending just one or two messages per year to let customers know about new products and services.

Most of the requirements of GDPR were therefore already in place at Label Planet. However, in order to comply fully with the new regulations we have had to document and formalise our processes. This included providing our legal basis for processing your information and updating our Privacy Policy accordingly.

Rather than bombard you with unnecessary emails or leave you with a long-winded blog post to wade through, we’re simply going to leave a link to our Privacy Policy right…

…here: https://www.labelplanet.co.uk/information/privacy-policy.php

So, when you’re ready to order self adhesive labels from us (or request some samples or just get in touch), you can check for yourself what information we collect and how we process that information – and decide if you’re happy to stick with us!

We’re sorry for adding to the cacophony of GDPR-related noise you have endured today (and for the last few weeks). As an apology, please enjoy this picture of our wonderful office dog Harvey.Harvey The Stikins Dog

December Is Here & So Are Our 2016 Last Posting Dates!

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

We know, we know – it’s ONLY JUST December – but if you need to order labels AND receive them before Christmas then NOW is the time to order!

Over the years, we’ve found that people tend to underestimate just how early they should order their Christmas labels because they don’t realise how many steps are involved, while a lucky few find themselves in need of a last minute re-order because their products or services are in such high demand that their initial order of labels simply wasn’t enough!

Most of the labels we sell at this time of year will be used as Christmas product labels or for Christmas events, which means that you have to leave enough time for ALL of the following steps to be completed:

1) You order your labels

2) We (make and) despatch your labels to you

3) Your labels are delivered to you

4) You (design a template and) print your labels

5) You apply your labels

6) You despatch your labels to wherever they need to be by Christmas (or by your Christmas-based event) – whether that’s at the location of your Christmas event or to the delivery address of a customer.

You need to remember that, at this time of year, manufacturing times and delivery times get longer and longer (even for delivery services that are SUPPOSED to be guaranteed) AND that designing a template and printing your labels can turn into quite a lengthy process AND that applying your labels (neatly) can take a lot longer than you think.

While we will always do our best to make sure that all of our customers receive the labels that they need in plenty of time for their Christmas deadlines, you MUST make sure that you have left enough time to get everything done. Our current despatch and delivery estimates for orders that you need to receive BEFORE Christmas are as follows:

NON-STOCKED/MADE TO ORDER ITEMS (500+ SHEETS):
At this time of year, production estimates are longer than usual with most made to order items being placed on a waiting list for manufacture. Our current lead times are 5 working days for manufacture/despatch via next working day carrier BUT we would warn customers that this lead time will eventually expand into 2017, which means that we would highly recommend that you get in touch with us BEFORE placing an order so we can confirm the despatch/delivery estimate for the exact items and quantities that you would like to order.

LARGE ORDERS OF STOCKED ITEMS (500+ SHEETS):
Where items are in stock they will be despatched on the same working day via next working day carrier (Mon-Fri, up to 3pm). If the items you wish to order are temporarily out of stock, they will need to be made, which could take several working days. Again, if you need to order a large number of boxes or wish to confirm that the labels you want are available, the best thing to do is to contact us to get an exact despatch/delivery estimate.
Last Posting Date For Christmas Delivery: Friday 23rd December (subject to stock availability)

MEDIUM ORDERS OF STOCKED ITEMS (250-475 SHEETS)
These orders will be despatched same day via next working day carrier (Mon-Fri, up to 3pm).
Last Posting Date For Christmas Delivery: Friday 23rd December

SMALL ORDERS OF STOCKED ITEMS (LESS THAN 250 SHEETS)
These orders are despatched same working day (Mon-Fri, up to 4:30pm) via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard. Usually, around 93% of first class mail arrives the next day BUT at this time of year the service does suffer delays and we would strongly recommend upgrading your order to Royal Mail’s guaranteed next (working) day delivery option (available online or by phone) – please note that this service does require a signature upon delivery.
Last Posting Date For Christmas Delivery: Wednesday 21st December (first class) or Thursday 22nd December (guaranteed next day)

ORDERS TO NORTHERN IRELAND & REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Delivery to these locations can take longer at this time of year so we strongly recommend ordering as soon as you can:

NORTHERN IRELAND:
Small Orders: sent via Royal Mail’s first class service; we strongly recommend ordering early and upgrading to the Royal Mail’s guaranteed next (working) day delivery service – bearing in mind that even this service may be delayed at this time of year. You should order by 4:30pm on Wednesday 21st December (first class) or Thursday 22nd December (guaranteed next day) to receive your labels before Christmas.
Medium/Large Orders: sent via a 2-3 working day carrier service (large orders: subject to stock availability); our last despatch day will be Wednesday 21st December (by 3pm) for delivery before Christmas.

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND:
Small Orders: sent via Royal Mail’s International standard service; the last recommended posting date for this service is Friday 16th December (order by 4:30pm) but we would strongly advise that you order sooner as the service is likely to experience delays.
Medium/Large Orders: sent via a 2-3 working day carrier service (large orders: subject to stock availability); our last despatch day will be Wednesday 21st December (by 3pm) for delivery before Christmas.

Please note that deliveries to Islands With UK Postcodes & “Extended” Postcode regions are also sent via 2-3 working day carrier service and so share the last despatch date of Wednesday 21st December.

If you have any questions or queries, doubts or deliberations about ordering labels in time for Christmas we strongly recommend contacting our Customer Service Team who will be able to give you the most up to date stock levels, despatch and delivery estimates, and delivery options available for the specific items you want to order.

Need Some Help Printing Labels? Check Out The New & Improved Label Planet HELP Pages!

Monday, November 28th, 2016

At Label Planet, we know EXACTLY how frustrating it can be when you run into a problem designing a template or printing your labels and you just CAN’T figure out what to do – even though you KNOW there’ll be some perfectly simple little trick that you can use to fix things in an instant.

Over the years we’ve dealt with thousands of customers and their tricky templates, which means that we’ve picked up plenty of tips and tricks to help resolve design and print issues – and we’ve created a comprehensive HELP SECTION on our website to make sure that all of our customers have the help and advice that they need ready and waiting if they encounter a problem – or even if they just need a bit of guidance on how to get started.

We’ve recently put our Help Section through a serious revamp to make sure that all of our templates and advice pages are as comprehensive and up to date as possible (see our New & Improved markers below). So, what sort of things can you find in our HELP SECTION? All of this (and much more!):

LABEL PRINTING TEMPLATES
We’ve created Word & PDF templates for ALL of our label sizes, so if you don’t have an existing template you can use (and don’t fancy trying to make your own), you can simply pop over to our Template Section and download the one you need. We’ve created options for portrait and landscape versions of our templates (where possible), as well as a few more specialised options (Text Box, Mirrored Text Box, Bleed) for customers to try.

Each of our label sizes has its own unique template information page, which includes the full set of templates for that size along with detailed measurement and layout information, design and printing tips, and a list of the material options available for that size.

REQUEST LABEL SAMPLES
We know that choosing the right label can be a tricky process, which is why we run a free sample request service so you can take a look at and test a few of our labels to make sure that you pick the one that’s perfect for your particular label application. Requesting a sample is a quick and easy way to make sure that you’ve chosen the right colour/material/finish/adhesive for the job AND it’s a great way to have a practice at getting your print alignment just right before you print onto your actual label sheets.

You can request a free sample using our online form or by contacting our Customer Service Team; please give us as much detail about your label application as possible – this will allow us to make sure that we only send samples that are appropriate for your purpose AND will allow us to make a few recommendations and suggestions if you’re really not sure what kind of label you need.

GUIDE TO DESIGNING AND PRINTING LABELS *Improved
Our very own guide to designing a template and printing your own labels. This basic guide leads you through the various steps involved in designing and printing a label template; Finding & Opening A Template, Designing A Template, and Setting Up Your Printer.

GUIDE TO PRINTING ROUND LABELS / CIRCULAR LABELS / OVAL LABELS *Improved
This guide is an extension of our general guide and provides more specific advice relating to round labels / circular labels and oval labels; these shapes are a little bit trickier to design and print accurately, so this guide aims to provide you with additional pointers to help you get the best possible print result on your labels.

GUIDE TO PRINTING MIRRORED TEXT / IMAGES
If you are printing transparent labels and want to create labels that can be read correctly from the reverse side (e.g. if the labels will be stuck inside a window but need to be read from outside the window), you can use this guide to find out how to reverse or “mirror” your text and images in a Word template.

TOP TIPS *Improved
A shortlist of quick Dos & Don’ts that can help prevent the majority of issues that arise when printing labels.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE *New
A new addition to our Help Section, this page collects together the most common problems that can occur when designing a template and printing labels, along with a simple explanation of how you can (hopefully) resolve each one.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS *Improved
Of course, no website is complete without a FAQs page and this is ours! This page features answers to all of those questions that we are most regularly asked, so if you have a quick question or query this is a good place to start!

AVERY CODES WITH COMPATIBLE LABEL PLANET CODES *Improved
You can use this page if you are already using Avery labels and/or templates and you want to see if we supply any labels that are the same size. This way you can order labels from Label Planet (in any of our material options) but continue to use your existing templates.

LABEL PLANET CODES WITH COMPATIBLE AVERY CODES *Improved
If you want/need to use a built in Avery template to print your labels, you can use this page to find out which of our products have compatible Avery template codes and/or find out which Avery code you need to use to bring up a template that is the same size and layout as your Label Planet labels.

Our HELP SECTION is completely free for ANYONE to use; we also offer support to customers by phone and email if they find that they have a question, query, or persistent problem that isn’t answered by these resources.

Website News – Our Template Project Is Almost Finished

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

If you’re a frequent visitor to the Label Planet Blog (or the Label Planet site), you may be aware that we have been working away to improve the Templates Section of our website to make it bigger and better than ever.

As part of our template revamp, we’re creating brand new sets of templates (in Word and PDF formats) for all of our label sizes (including Portrait & Landscape options, Text Box & Mirrored Text Box options, and Bleed templates – where possible), along with a “Template Information Page” for each label size that we supply.

The template information pages provide more detailed information about each label size we supply, including measurements and compatible Avery template codes (where applicable), along with tips and advice for printing that particular label size and layout. You can also download a printing template from this page and see, at a glance, all of the different material and adhesive options available for each label size.

We’re delighted to announce that our revamp is almost complete; all of the new information pages are available for customers to peruse, while we’re working hard to complete all of the new template sets for all of our label sizes. Currently, we have created complete Word & PDF template sets for our Rectangular Labels and our Round Labels; Word template sets for our Square Labels, Oval Labels, and Special Use Labels have been added to our website with the PDF sets in development at this very moment – we’ll be adding these sets as soon as they’re done!

To find the template information page for your Label Planet labels, you can either:

  • VISIT OUR TEMPLATE HOME PAGE: click on the link for your label shape, find your label size in the table, and click on the “More Info” link to navigate to the template information page for that particular size and layout.
  • VISIT THE PRODUCT PAGE OF YOUR LABELS: click on the purple “Label Templates And Printing Information For This Label” link to visit the template information page for your labels.

You can now download a template by visiting our Template Home page and selecting the link for the label shape you want to print (find your label size in the table and select the Word or the PDF portrait template) OR by visiting the Template Information page for your label size and selecting the template you would like to download.

We recommend that you choose to “save” rather than “open” your template if you are given the choice; you can then use your software to open the saved template (“File” > “Open”), which will allow your software to check if the template is compatible before you start designing your template.

If you are unable to edit your template, it may have been temporarily locked – simply click on the (yellow) “Enable Editing” button or banner at the top of the page to unlock your template and add your design. If you find that your Word template appears to be completely blank (with the Label Planet code repeating across the page), it is likely that Table Gridlines are turned off. To turn Table Gridlines on you should left click once in the centre of your template, select the Table Tools “Layout” tab at the top of the page, and click on “View Gridlines” (Word 2007 onwards, Word For Mac 2016); alternatively, select the “Table Layout” tab, and click “Gridlines” (Word For Mac 2011).

Visit our Template Home page to find a label template or visit our Advice Home page to find even more helpful resources, including our Sample Request service, answers to Frequently Asked Questions, and a variety of helpful tips.

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.

NEW PRODUCT – Introducing The Newest Label Size Available From Label Planet – LP4/210!

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

This summer, we’ve welcomed a brand new label size to our world of labels so our customers have even more choice when it comes to picking the perfect label.

A new addition to our range of rectangular labels with square cut corners, the LP4/210 label size measures 210mm wide by 74.25mm high, which makes a brilliantly versatile size that can come in handy in all kinds of ways.

LP4/210

For customers who want their labels to be long and thin, the LP4/210 is a perfect option to use for these applications. It’s a really useful size for creating address and shipping labels (whether you’re sending personal correspondence or delivering products to customers), for getting your files and folders labelled (especially if you’ve got an endless pile of lever arch files and box files to sort through), and is a great way to get any space organised at home or at work by adding labels to your drawers, cabinets, boxes, and shelves (whether you’re simply trying to bring a bit of harmony to your living or work space or you’re keeping track of endless boxes of stock).

Our LP4/210 label size is supplied on blank A4 sheets of matt white paper with a standard permanent adhesive, which will allow these labels to remain firmly stuck onto a range of materials and surfaces. With a minimum order quantity of 25 sheets, these labels are among our stocked items, which are available to order for same day despatch.

You can find and download printing templates for our new size on the LP4/210 Template Information Page, which provides a full set of templates (in Word or PDF format), details about this label size, and a few tips for designing and printing labels of this particular size and layout.

Take a look at the template information page for more information about our brand new label size or visit the LP4/210 product page to place your order today!

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.

Take Our Labels For A Test Drive With Our Sample Request Service

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

People decide to print their own labels for a number of different reasons; for some it’s a financial decision (to avoid paying someone else to print labels on their behalf), others want to be able to control what is printed on their labels (as well as when and how many labels are produced at a time), and others want to make their own labels for a personal project (for example, as part of a particularly important event such as a big birthday, a special anniversary, or a wedding).

Producing your own labels, however, also means that you take on the responsibility (and challenges) of finding the perfect label for your particular application AND designing a template for those labels AND getting that template to print out properly on your labels.

With so many different label products available for customers to print themselves, it can be quite a difficult thing to decide which labels to choose – you need to consider if a particular product is the right size/colour/finish, if the material and adhesive are suitable for the application you have in mind, if the labels are compatible with your printer, and if the shape and size are right for what you need your label to do.

This is why we offer a free sample request service; customers can browse through the different options we offer, select the ones that they think are most suitable for their needs, and then ask for a sample. They can then test those particular labels to make sure that they will do the job in hand AND they can have a test run at designing and printing their own label template.

We recently updated our online sample request form to make it even more helpful to customers who are choosing and printing their own labels; if you’re not sure which samples to ask for, you can simply let us know what sort of label you are looking for and we’ll select the best options on your behalf. We recommend being as specific as you can with the samples that you request so we can make sure that the labels we send out are the most suitable ones for the label application you have in mind. For example, we ask you to let us know what kind of printer you have, what material types and adhesive strengths you prefer, what you will be using the labels for / what you will be sticking the labels onto, and any shape or size requirements that you have – using this information, we can select the best options for your label application (making sure that they’re compatible with your printer and are made with a material and adhesive that will meet the requirements of the application).

To request a sample from Label Planet, simply visit our Samples Page and fill in our online request form OR get in touch with our Customer Service Team by phone or by email to request a sample pack.

Try A New Twist On An Old Favourite (With Our Popular Label Sizes Page)

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

While we aim to offer our customers the best possible RANGE of self-adhesive labels to choose from (including, of course, as many different label sizes as possible), there are a number of sizes that are requested time and time again.

These label sizes tend to be “standard” sizes that can be put to use in thousands and thousands of different label applications; they’re among the most common products made by the label industry and tend to be adopted as “standards” for all kinds of purposes, which means they end up being built into software for a whole host of specific applications and used by all kinds of individuals and organisations across the country.

We’ve taken our 14 most commonly requested label sizes and turned them into “Popular Sizes”, which we aim to supply in as many different material and adhesive options as possible – with the majority available to order in packs of 25 sheets for same day despatch from stock. This allows our customers to find the perfect label material and adhesive to suit their particular application AND to receive their labels as quickly as possible.

Each of our “Popular Sizes” is available to order in 35+ material options, including a range of paper labels, coloured paper labels, and synthetic labels (in polyester, polyethylene, and vinyl). Our paper range includes options for premium quality papers with gloss, semi-gloss, or matt finishes, opaque labels (for covering up incorrect or out of date information), freezer labels for food and drink or research sample applications, high tack labels for more unusual surfaces, and two removable options (with a “standard” or a “super” removable adhesive). For a more decorative finish, we offer seven pastel colours, five fluorescent colours, metallic gold and silver (for a luxurious or festive finish), and brown Kraft paper (for a natural, hand tailored finish) OR – if you’re having problems colour matching or want to avoid covering up a decorative surface – you can opt for one of our transparent labels. Our synthetic labels are all made with waterproof materials and are available with gloss or matt finishes, which makes them ideal if you need durable, long lasting labels that are also waterproof.

So, if you’ve got a “standard” label that isn’t doing its job as well as it could do, want a label that’s a bit more decorative or professional in appearance, or you’re simply looking for a change, why not take a look through our popular sizes pages to see if there’s an alternative version of the product you already know and love that will do the job that little bit better!

Visit our Popular Sizes page to see all of the label sizes available in this range and use the individual popular product pages to view all of the options available for the label size of your choice.
