Custom Labels

Features

Call attention to your business with custom label printing.

What makes a label fun and effective? What it boils down to for most people is the customization of the design. With custom label printing, you can create labels that will drive a positive impression and instant brand recognition. Labels easily promote your business as part of your product packaging, whether used for mailing as custom address labels or as custom wine labels. They also play an important role for event organizers that need to print personalized labels for weddings and other events.

When to Use Cut-to-Size and Roll Labels

At UPrinting, you can print cut-to-size or roll labels. Cut-to-size are individually cut in your chosen shape and are suitable for labeling specialty products and gifts. Our wide size range lets you print labels as small as 1.5” x 2.5” to as big as 8.5” x 11”. You can print these on two types of materials:

Cut to Size Paper Options
 
70 lb. Label Gloss

A shimmery finish perfect for indoor use.
70lb. Label Matte

A smooth, satin-like finish that can be written on and perfect for labelling several products indoors.
70 lb. Label High Gloss (UV)

UV resistant coating that gives an extra gloss and can distinguish premium items in your store.
4 mil. White Vinyl High Gloss UV

A UV resistant option that’s also waterproof and can be used outdoors as well.

Indoor Use        
Outdoor Use

Roll labels are the more practical choice for those who need to label products in bulk manually or using a dispenser. They’re easier to peel but also fit in most label dispensers for fast and easy application. You can adjust the label’s design according to our custom sizes and die-cutting options.

Custom roll labels also come with three additional paper options for your labels:

  • Rainbow Holographic BOPP Labels – Three-dimensional holographic BOPP adds style and luster to roll labels. Printed in full color, this material has an iridescent effect that livens up logos and other images. With UV protection to shield it from sunlight and weather.
  • Removable White BOPP Labels – Its strong adhesive remains flat and bubble-free but can be easily removed without messy residue.

Both cut-to-size and roll materials come in a matte, gloss, or high-gloss finish. Matte offers a rustic and organic look, while gloss and high-gloss surfaces let the colors pop. Both matte and gloss are applied on labels found on products displayed indoors.

Custom Label Q&A

Does printing time include the time needed to deliver my order?

The printing time on the online calculator refers to the number of days to produce your order. You can estimate the transit time and expected arrival of your items by clicking on the “Estimate Shipping Cost and Delivery Date” link at the bottom of the calculator. 

What is the difference between white premium sticker paper, BOPP materials, and textured paper?

White premium sticker paper is best used for items that will be displayed indoors but not refrigerated. Clear, white, and silver metallic BOPP uses a paper film that protects the label from oil, chemicals, and water. BOPP is also able to withstand refrigeration. Textured paper is often used on gourmet food and wine labels for its elegant and distinct textured finish. 

Should I use 70 lb. label paper or 4 mil. white vinyl sticker paper for my cut-to-size labels?

White vinyl sticker paper is best for labels that will be used outdoors as this is UV resistant and can withstand other elements. 

The 70 lb. label material is suited for items to be displayed indoors. Choose from a gloss, high gloss, or matte finish, depending on your design. Matte and gloss are both writable while the UV resistant high gloss is not.

What are the best uses for roll labels? For cut-to-size labels?

If you need to label a large quantity of items, you can place the roll into a label dispenser for quick and easy application. Cut-to-size labels work better for promotional handouts.
