New to Label Printing?

Getting Started with Label PrintingWhen you’re new to labeling, it can certainly be challenging to understand where to get started. We at Creative Labels are here to help you with our years of experience!

First, you’ll need to determine the size of your label to fit your container or package. There are some guidelines you need to follow to ensure proper labeling can be applied to your container. You will need to keep the edges of the labels at least 1/8-1/4” away from edges, and or surfaces where they begin to curve. This will allow easier application whether it be by hand, or automatic application. This will also eliminate any flagging due to a small portion of the label being applied on a curved surface.

Please know at any point, you’re more than welcome to submit your container to Creative Labels, and we can do the measuring for you at no cost!

Second, you’ll need to submit a design in which you want the labels to look like. This often, can be the most challenging part of starting with labels. There are industry standards in which the artwork needs to be submitted to work with our in-house graphic designers and their software. We have one of the finest Graphic Departments in the country who will be able to help assist you in understanding how to submit your art. You may submit your art via email in a high-res PDF, or if the files are large, we have a FTP Site in which you can upload your art files to. Please contact our Graphics Department for access and password information. Once you upload your art, we will pre-flight your art and make sure it’s ready to go, or will help you in getting everything we need. We have just invested into the newest technology software to help minimize your need in manipulating the files.

Once we have the size, we can discuss the application as to how it’s being used, and can help assist in determining which material and adhesive to use for your needs. We have over 30 years of experience with adhesives and face sheets to help make your labels perform flawlessly!

At this time, all we’ll need is how many you are looking for. Once we have the quantities, we can help you decide which printing method is best, and can work up pricing for you for how much everything will cost. We actually have a “Quotation” link on our website for you. If you have any questions, please contact us and we can provide any assistance you will need to get your pricing.
