What is a custom label?

Custom labels ensure your target audience can easily identify aspects of your packaging that are unique to your brand.

What information is on a custom label?

You can put whatever information you want on a custom label, including:

  • QR codes to scan a product for more information
  • Company branding and logo
  • Where consumers can go for more details

What you put on a custom label can vary depending on a few factors:

  • Information required by regulatory agencies, particularly for food, beverage, supplements, pharmaceuticals, and safety information
  • Size of the label
  • Size of the container
  • Visual elements of the product and the label

What goes into a custom label design?

When you need custom labels for your products, the process follows several steps:

  1. Conversation. It all starts with a conversation between your team and your chosen custom label provider. Both sides will ask questions and seek answers. From there, we decide on the next steps for creating fantastic labels you can be proud of.
  2. Diving into specifications. What are the specs of your products? What sizes of labels do you want? What information do you want on labels? Does your industry face regulations on what must go on labels?
  3. Design. Your chosen custom label provider collaborates with your team to design a great-looking label. Here, you will get to approve the artwork remotely with the assistance of your team and your provider’s team.
  4. Prototyping. You’ll get a trial run to make sure the labels meet your requirements.
  5. Full production run. Once you’re satisfied, the label provider completes a full production run and ships you the labels.
