Custom product labels: the different types and when to use them

3 min read

Product labels are essential when it comes to promoting your brand. They help to differentiate your product from the competition and set it apart as unique. But with so many types of labels available, how do you choose the right one for your product?

When you choose custom product labels, there are a few things you need to take into account in order to make sure you’re making the best choice for your product. In this article, we’ll cover the different types of label materials, custom sticker sheets and shapes and sizes so that you can find the perfect label for your needs

Label materials

There are a few different types of label materials, each with its own benefits. Let us break down your options in the simplest way:

  • Paper labels

Paper labels are budget-friendly and easy to print on, but they’re not very durable. If your product will be exposed to water, paper labels will start to peel. On the other hand, they are perfect for eco-conscious brands, as they are completely compostable.

  • Vinyl labels

If you are looking for a durable label, choose a vinyl label. Vinyl labels are waterproof and resistant to tearing and fading, making them ideal for products that will be used outdoors or around water.

Shapes and sizes

Once you’ve chosen a material for your label, you need to decide on a shape and size. The most common shape for product labels is a rectangle, but there are many more options available. Choose a custom die cut label to create any shape you can think of.

When you order your labels, you will receive them on a roll or a sticker sheet. This makes your labels much faster to peel and easier to store than individual stickers. If you have a preference, reach out to your sticker maker.

Find your perfect size by measuring the overall size of your products and the size of the space you want to cover with your labels. This way you will not only know the size you are looking for, but you can also make sure that your labels will be in proportion to your product.

How to design your own custom product labels

The best aspect of going custom is that you can submit your own design. This means that you do not have to go opt for generic designs many other brands have, but that you can create a truly unique look.

When you do not have any design experience, creating your own artwork can seem daunting. But it does not have to be. In fact, designing your product labels can be super easy and quick.

Most printing companies offer free online design tools you can use to create professional-looking artwork in minutes. Browse pre-designed templates and elements and edit them until you love your sticky labels.
