At CS we manufacture labels for every use imaginable
What are Commercial Labels?
Commercial labels are everywhere, but what are they? Well, it could be any of the following:
- A simple product label - for example food or drink product
- Company name and address labels
- Product code label for internal use
- QR codes
- Asset number or security detail
- Wall stickers for signage
- Instructional labels
- Equipment labels
In simple terms, it’s any label used in a commercial environment at some point of its lifecycle, so as you can imagine, the scope is huge! The most common type of commercial labels are used in retail environments where products travel through the supply chain.
Each product, or box, pallet, cage require a way to be tracked and audited from production, all the way to the point of sale. For heavy white-goods, sometimes the label is used until the product is disposed or destroyed. Labels support the management of this, so it’s important that you understand what you need, how you want it to look and how it’s going to be used.
Here at CS, we have the experience and technology to deliver high-quality commercial labels, giving companies and brands the ability to communicate effectively.
Things to consider
Things to consider with your commercial labels:
Size & Shape
Your label could be a square, rectangle, circle, star shape, or be cut around a specific design - whatever you need we can source a cutter to give you the shape that you want.
Colours and Design
Have you considered what colours and fonts to use? Do they fit in with any guidelines? Can they be easily read? Do the colours help the readability?
Where is the label being applied? At CS Labels, there are many different types of materials and finishes available, from standard paper and adhesive stocks, through PP materials in clear, silver and white, to PE stick too.
What type of environment and/or material is the label going to be used/applied to? Will it be exposed to extra hot, or wet environments? Ask about specialist finishes and adhesives.
For example, do you need a single-ply or a peel and reveal to deliver more space for languages and instructions? Peel and reveals can communicate information on up to 5 separate sides of labels. Or perhaps you need a set of labels. Front, back, base, neck. Work with your designer to create artwork that will work with both your product and its packaging.
How Many Do You Need?
At CS we print using digital presses meaning that there are no plate costs so the savings are passed on to our customers. This way you can order what you need when you need it, and when you need more just order more! If you need to make any changes to your artwork, colours, design or wording, just send us updated artwork and we’ll send them to print! It’s that simple.
Another big consideration is the decision on how you want or need your labels to be presented to you. It may be that you need rolls of 1000, or 5000. Perhaps you need to specify the leading edge if your labels are being machine-applied. If not and you need them to be cut into single sheets, we can do that for you too.
