How to Choose the Right Kind of Label for Your Project

Labeling is an aspect of branding and a method of product identification. At first, choosing the right label for your project can be difficult. There are many types of labels available that vary in size, shape, function, and color. There are also many factors to consider before you begin, and the expert team at Label Solutions is here to help. Today, learn how to choose the right type of label for your project.

What Are Some Different Types of Labels?

We want you to be familiar with the different types of labels so you can make the best decision. A label may be classified as a brand label, a descriptive label, an informative label, or a grade label. Not only do product labels identify the brand, but they also provide important details such as ingredients, nutrition information, shelf-life, and safe handling practices.

Additionally, not all labels are standard square-cut and one-sided. Some unique types of labels include:

  • Reseal labels
  • Dry peel labels
  • Fold-out labels
  • Specialty die-cut labels
  • Prime labels
  • Shrink sleeve labels
  • Pressure-sensitive labels

Consider Your Label Size and Shape

The size and shape of your label will vary depending on your preferences, your product, and your target market. Before you select a label size, consider how much information you want the label to include. How you would like your product to be displayed is up to you. These days, the most common labels used are rectangular shaped with square or rounded corners. When they are paired with the right material, these rectangular labels can be used for many applications, such as beverage bottles, shipping boxes, and more.

Consider Regulatory Requirements

Next, be aware of any rules and regulations for your products about labeling. For example, there are nutritional labeling regulations for food manufacturers. Tobacco companies are required to include health warnings on cigarette packages. So, when choosing labels for your project, account for enough space to include statutory warnings, nutrition facts, and any other regulations required by your industry.
