Get the Right Labels to Show Off Your Tea Products

Having the right type of packaging and labels for your packaged tea product is vital for success. But what are some of the essential elements of tea labels? Here are several you should consider carefully as you design your labels for production.

Versatile sizes

Whether you prefer wrap-around labels for tins, large rectangular labels covering the front of pouches or intricate tea boxes that feature several different labels on all sides, the options are nearly endless. Choosing a size that best fits your packaging shouldn’t be an issue, but you’ll want to make sure all the important product details are visible and that your branding is exactly what you want it to be.

Beautiful fonts and typeface settings

Labels for your packaged tea products can also feature a variety of gorgeous fonts and typeface settings to achieve the look you’re after. However, you’ll want to make sure your brand name and all other details are easy to read, so it’s advised that you don’t choose more than two different fonts when creating your labels.

Striking illustrations and images

When it comes to tea packaging, your labels can include images and illustrations that conjure feelings of comfort, further adding to the description of each type of plant or tea. Or, you can stick with one particular label image that defines your brand. Either way, a striking image is a great way to make your labels and product stand out from competitors.

A variety of materials

Labels for your packaged tea products can be made with several different materials, depending on your packaging needs. For example, if your package is opaque or plain, you might choose an elaborate label design printed on a white label with many vivid colors to brighten it up. Or, you may choose a clear label to let the tea leaves show through. You can also coat your labels with a gloss or matte-over laminate as a final finishing touch to keep them shiny. Regardless, we always recommend BOPP labels made from long-wearing plastic film and are waterproof, smudge-free, and heat-resistant.

Why Are White and Clear BOPP Labels So Popular With CPGs?

White and clear BOPP labels are one of our most durable and popular products for the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. Biaxially oriented polypropylene is a low-cost material used not only in labels but also in shrink wrap for food packaging. In today’s blog from Label Solutions, we examine why white and clear BOPP labels are so popular with CPGs.

The “No Label” Look

Many CPG brands rely on visual presentations to make their products more appealing to consumers. Clear BOPP labels provide a “no label” look for brands when visual appeal is a must. Think of candies, cookies, meats, prepared salads, and fresh fruits. Much like consumers look at photos on restaurant menus to order food, the same is true for CPGs. They want to see that the fruit is ripe, the vegetables are crisp, and the cookies have lots of chocolate chips. Items that have a distinct color also benefit from clear BOPP because those colors will stand out among other products on the shelf.

Flatness

White and clear BOPP labels are flat, which means they conform well to containers. This is particularly true for items that aren’t necessarily uniform in shape, such as fresh meats, or unusually shaped packages such as spheres. White and clear BOPP labels can fit on just about any product package you can imagine.

Oil & Water Resistance

Both white and clear BOPP labels offer oil and water resistance. Salad dressings, juices, packaged fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, honey, and personal care items that go in the bathroom all benefit from having BOPP labels. Items that go in the garage, such as paints, motor oil, and grease, are also great candidates for these labels.

Low Toxicity

The low toxicity of white and clear BOPP labels make them ideal for CPG brands with regard to food. Polypropylene is a sturdy material that doesn’t seep into other items or onto people’s hands. BOPP is made from FDA-approved resins, so it’s safe to use on CPGs. 

Superior Strength

BOPP is made by mechanically stretching a clear film in the machine direction and the transverse direction (hence the name, “biaxially oriented”). This process creates a stronger product compared to cellophane or similar materials. The manufacturing process also allows for cheaper materials costs.  

Low Costs

Items made of BOPP have been around since at least the early 1980s. Because of nearly 40 years of investment by large companies in this substance, white and clear BOPP labels are an industry standard that can lower your costs as a CPG brand. Combine the low cost of BOPP with a professional labeling company, and your products receive a boost when vying for attention on store shelves in the highly competitive CPG space.

Products That Use Waterproof Labels

Durable waterproof labels keep your products safe from water damage, whether it’s rain, snow, condensation, or a spilled beverage. From small bottles to large packages, there are many products that feature high-quality labels designed to withstand wet conditions. Today, Labels Solutions explains why waterproof labels are important, and we identify some common products that utilize them.

The Importance of Waterproof Labels

Waterproof labels need to stay in place on the product, and the product description needs to remain legible. Poorly made labels can chip, peel, or crack when they are exposed to weather and water elements. If your customers receive a mislabeled item, or if the description is illegible, it could result in serious consequences. Our team has experience in producing labels that withstand harsh environments, and we make sure your products meet regulatory requirements.

Containers, bottles, and other products come in many different shapes and sizes. Whether you need a standard label size or a flexible waterproof film to fit an oddly-shaped container, Label Solutions can help.

Shampoo Bottles Use Waterproof Labels

Bathroom products are constantly exposed to moisture from sinks and showers. They need durable, waterproof films to maintain their product descriptions. Whether it is a hand pump for liquid soap or a bottle of shampoo, labels that resist water will help customers keep their bathrooms organized. If the label fades or peels, they are likely to buy another product next time.

Foods and Beverages Use Waterproof Labels

Craft breweries and distilleries sell bottled beverages that require waterproof labels. A white polypropylene film can withstand tough conditions and is great for food and beverage products. At Label Solutions, our innovative technology produces a durable, high-quality label that can endure the wet environment of canning and bottling.

  • Cosmetics
  • Hazardous chemicals
  • Car decals
  • Boats
