What do the owners of a bakery, candle shop, and crafts store have in common? They all need a way to identify their products while promoting their business. That’s where labels come in handy. Custom labels make it easy for your potential customers and existing ones to locate your products. At the same time, they give you an opportunity to promote your brand.
Why Choose Labels Over Stickers?
The terms label and sticker are often used interchangeably, but they are different. Product labels are printed on rolls in large quantities. They’re fast to peel, and the use of a roll supports many shapes and sizes. In contrast, stickers are printed on sheets of paper. They have stronger backing and take more time to peel. You can’t fit as many stickers to a sheet as you can print labels on a roll. As a result, stickers are best when you don’t need a lot of them or if you plan to use them as a promotional tool.
Business Labels vs Printing Stickers at Home
Everyone wants to save time and money. At the same time, you don’t want to cut corners. When it comes to printing labels professionally vs at home, there are a few factors you should consider.
Price: The price point on a roll is better than sheets when printing in bulk, saving you money. As with most mass-produced products, the more you buy, the lower the price. Long term, you may spend as much as 400% more for sheets of labels you run through your home printer than label rolls at a print shop. Don’t forget that printer cartridge ink is one of the most expensive liquids in the world – even more expensive than Russian caviar or imported champagne.
Quality: The quality on a roll is better. Using either a fully digital or conventional flexographic label printing press, the professional commercial grade printing quality is light years ahead of even the best home printer.
Environmental Friendliness: Rolls of labels create less waste. If you’ve ever printed your own label sheets, chances are you’ve thrown quite a few of them away just trying to calibrate your printer. And when it comes to hand application, we’re willing to bet more than a few have ended up torn off and thrown away due to misapplication.
You want custom labels that look great and are printed to the specifications you need the first time.
