Step-by-Step Guide to High-Quality Custom Food Labels

No need for a design background or deep technical know-how to print custom labels. PrintPlace makes it easy with the following options:

1. Choose the label suited for your product.
Food, bottle, water bottle, and waterproof labels are recommended for items that will be refrigerated or chilled.

If you have a specific size and shape in mind, custom labels are recommended for this need. Product labels work best for a more diverse set of items in other industries such as beauty, healthcare, or fashion.

2. Select a format suited to your application method and quantity.
  • Cut-to-size labels are individual pieces that are best applied by hand. These are preferred for orders under 250 pieces.
  • Roll labels are ordered in large quantities of hundreds to thousands. Each roll fits in a label dispenser for faster application on a large set of items that need to ship out immediately.

3. Print on a material that will weather the elements.
A variety of permanent adhesive materials are available for your food labels. Cut-to size comes in indoor-friendly white paper sticker or waterproof white vinyl.

Roll labels come in a wider range of materials that suit beverages and other chilled items:
  • White premium sticker paper is ideal for indoor application on any product that won’t be exposed to water or any form of moisture.
  • BOPP is a sturdy sticker material built for beverages, food, and other containers that are stored in a refrigerator. It is oil-resistant and waterproof.
  • Textured materials are waterproof for a prolonged period of 4 hours. The elegant finish is normally seen on wine bottles and other gourmet items.
