Finding suitable blank labels to match your label printing requirements can be irritating unless you have access to suppliers with specialized knowledge. Blank labels are one of the easiest and most reliable ways of printing large volumes of labels. As they are blank they are easily customizable and can be used for most requirements. Product manufacturers often use blank labels for a variety of their products including the labelling of bottles, candles, drums, file folders, jars, mailings and more.Blank labels are ideal for printing variable information for example ingredients and sell by dates. Barcodes are often printed on blank labels.
Different types of blank labels:
Thermal Labels– one of the advantages of thermal labels is that you can print your entire product line in full colour, high quality and then overprint the description, ingredients and barcode of each individual product. Therefore there is no need to have large stock of many different labels.
Thermal Transfer Labels– the advantage of using thermal transfer labels is that it will not fade if exposed to sunlight or heat. In thermal transfer printing, the heat of the printer melts the resin or wax on the transfer film and an image is pressed onto the label. No ribbon is used in this process.
Semi-Gloss Labels– semi gloss labels are much cheaper than full gloss labels but the required sheen or luster is still evident.
Matt Labels – as the name suggests, matt labels are made without the sheen.
