Asset Labels

Also known as security labels, asset labels from CS can help you securely mark, index, track and identify your assets with asset labels. Also used for anti-tamper, they’re also a great way to deter theft.

Typically asset labels are used in large establishments such as schools, universities, hospitals, factories, and any environment where there is high value technology, equipment, and furniture. Sometimes they have serial numbers, barcodes, company logos and even addresses or contact information. Asset labels manufactured by CS Labels are high quality, cost-effective and can be customised according to your requirements.

What Information Does an Asset Label Have?

Most asset labels have a company name or department with a reference code. The code is usually generated and supplied as variable data prior to the printing process. As CS Labels is a digital manufacturer, variable data printing is easy for us to do - for more information, get in touch!

It’s also always a good idea to consider the construction of your asset label as you need for it to not come away from what it’s stuck to. The information on the asset labels also needs to be clearly visible, regardless of the environment in which it is stored or used.
Technical considerations for asset labels

  • What material should I use? - There are different materials to choose from. It makes sense to use white Polypropylene for an asset label but speak to our sales team who can advise on your options depending on what it’s being stuck to and how it’s being used.
  • What finish is required? - laminates and varnishes are used on almost every high-quality asset label. This protects the print underneath from being marked or rubbed off. Laminates also give extra protection so that may be an option to consider.
  • What adhesive is right? You need to understand the extremities of the environments in which the label will sit. Specialist adhesives for particularly hot, cold or wet environments are available
  • Can different styles, colours, shapes and designs be used? Of course, it just depends on what you want. At CS, we can print in the shape, colour and style of your choice.

Be mindful of label suppliers offering basic and cheap labels - durability is key
