The labels have a variety of applications and can be used at many stages of product manufacturing. Depending on the requirements, labels should combine several characteristics: the design should be tailored to all the needs of both the product and the customer; the information must comply with legal and regulatory requirements; materials should be selected according to the usage and storage conditions and application.
Labels for bottles, jars and other types of glass containers
One of the most common ways to store food - including at home - is in glass containers. That is why the labels on jars and bottles enjoy a huge variety of designs, placement on the material, combinations with the color of the glass and the food product. Rotoprint can assist you in printing self-adhesive labels designed for glass surfaces, taking into account the specifics of your product and the level of customization you are looking for.
Labels for metal and canned food
And where do you hide your supply of canned goods? Cold and damp basements are often a place for their long storage. It turns out that self-adhesive and wrap-around can labels serve not only on the grocery store shelf, but also in our own little warehouses. Therefore, the good appearance of the labels and the readability of the data on them must be preserved for a long time. For this purpose, sticking the labels on a metal surface has its own specifics such as the composition of the adhesive, the suitability of the paper (or other types of printing media) of the labels, as well as an ink that retains its vivid colors even in a moist and cold environment.
Labels for direct food contact
Labels that adhere directly to food products have been used for a long time. Recently, they have also received a more specific distribution due to environmental trends to reduce the packaging used, leaving only the labels stuck on the surface of the product. The requirements for their qualities are particularly high. Due to the direct food contact, they must be safe for the health, maintain their integrity under various conditions such as moisture and cold, and at the same time to remain clearly visible throughout the product’s shelf life.
