What labels does your business need?

In any business, labels play an integral role in branding, marketing, and logistics.

From packaging to promotion, the right type of label can significantly impact how your product is perceived and handled. At Worldwide, we specialise in offering comprehensive label printing solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of businesses across various industries.

Let’s take a look at some of the essential labels your business may need to ensure your products stand out and reach their destination safely.

Essential labels for your business

Packaging delivery label

Packaging and delivery labels

In the realm of e-commerce and retail distribution, packaging and delivery labels are indispensable. These labels not only serve as the first physical touchpoint of your brand with the customer but also contain critical information such as the product name, ingredients, and barcode, alongside shipping details and handling instructions. Opting for durable, high-quality label printing ensures that your products are well-represented and that the labels withstand the rigours of transit, maintaining legibility from warehouse to doorstep.

promotional label

Branding and promotional labels

In addition to the standard retail and point-of-sale labels, businesses can leverage branding and promotional labels in more creative ways. These can include limited-edition labels, seasonal designs, or labels for special promotions that help in creating buzz and encouraging customer engagement. They are an excellent tool for refreshing your brand’s image and keeping your marketing dynamic.

Vehicle service label

Window and vehicle labels

Automotive and vehicle labels are ideal for tracking service schedules, upcoming maintenance, and important notices, ensuring your vehicles are efficiently managed. The labels can be produced so you can write on one side and still display important information on the other side. Additionally, window labels for your vehicle or shopfront are an easy way to display essential contact details and business hours. Crafted from durable vinyl, these labels withstand environmental challenges, making them a reliable choice.

Label with delivery and tracking barcode

Inventory and asset labels

Inventory and asset labels are important for businesses that need to track resources, equipment, or products. These labels often contain barcodes, QR codes, or RFID technology for easy scanning and tracking within inventory management systems. They help in reducing losses, managing stock levels, and improving the efficiency of asset management.

Chemical label

Safety and compliance labels

For businesses in manufacturing, construction, chemical, or any industry with stringent safety and regulatory requirements, safety and compliance labels are essential. These labels provide warnings, safety instructions, or regulatory information to ensure both employee safety and compliance with national and international standards. They can include hazard symbols, safety precautions, and use instructions that are critical for maintaining a safe working environment.

Security Tag label

Tamper-evident and security labels

Tamper-evident and security labels are designed to provide evidence of tampering, offering an additional layer of security for products. These labels are essential for pharmaceuticals, food packaging, electronics, and other industries where product integrity is critical. They can deter tampering and counterfeiting, protecting both the brand and consumers.

Eco-friendly label

Eco-friendly labels

With growing environmental concerns and consumer demand for sustainable products, eco-friendly labels are becoming increasingly important. These labels are made from recycled materials, biodegradable papers, or sustainable sources and can highlight your brand’s commitment to sustainability. They are particularly relevant for businesses in the food, beauty, and personal care industries, where consumers are more conscious of environmental impact. If eco-friendly labels are a priority for your business, speak to one of our Carbon Neutral Certified Centres who can help you reduce your carbon footprint.

Types of labels

Understanding the different types of labels and materials available is important in selecting the right label for your needs. Here’s an overview of some of the options available:

Sheet labels

Sheet labels are a versatile choice for businesses looking for flexibility in label size and design within a single batch. These labels come on standard-sized sheets and are perfect for a variety of applications, from mailing and shipping to product labelling and inventory management. The format of sheet labels allows for an assortment of different label designs and sizes to be printed together, catering to businesses that need a range of labels but not in massive quantities. This makes them a great option if you don’t want to commit to large volumes. The sheets of labels can also be cut-down to any size you require.

Roll labels

Roll labels, on the other hand, are designed for businesses with higher volume labelling needs and can be used in conjunction with label dispensers or automatic label applicators. This format streamlines the application process, allowing for quicker and more efficient labelling of products, which is important for medium to large-scale operations. Roll labels are an economical choice for companies looking to scale their production without compromising on quality or efficiency. Available in a variety of materials and finishes, roll labels can be customised to suit specific product needs, whether it’s durability, moisture resistance, or aesthetic appeal.

Die-cut labels

Die-cut labels allows businesses looking to elevate their brand to stand out with uniquely shaped labels. Unlike standard labels, which are typically rectangular, square, or circular, die-cut labels can be cut to any shape or size, allowing for perfect alignment with your product’s design and packaging. This customisation facilitates brand differentiation and can significantly enhance shelf appeal. Whether you’re aiming for sleek, rounded corners, intricate outlines, or shapes that mimic your logo, die-cut labels provide the flexibility to create a memorable brand experience. They are ideal for products in highly competitive markets where brand visibility and packaging innovation can influence consumer choices.

Label materials

The choice of material is pivotal in label printing.

  • Removable labels offer flexibility, allowing for easy repositioning without leaving residue.
  • Thermal labels are perfect for shipping and POS applications, providing durability and easy scanning.
  • Paper labels offer a classic, eco-friendly option for branding.
  • Vinyl labels are robust, ideal for outdoor use and window or vehicle labels. 

The right label not only serves a functional purpose but also reinforces your brand identity and communicates with your customers.
