In the world of inkjet labels, there are many choices, depending on what you will be using them for. The coloured label is one of them, and it is at the top of the list of most practical label types. But this type of label often goes overlooked by those needing exactly what they can provide, which is attention for products and important documents.
Likely the simplest of the coloured labels are the small round labels. These labels can be seen during almost every store sale, communicating to customers that there’s something special about the product they are attached to.
Using coloured inkjet labels is a great way to get your products to stand out from the rest. And this can be done in many ways. You can use the colour of a label as part of your product’s logo, or use it to attract attention to a certain feature, such as a limited edition or on-sale product.
In a warehouse setting, the coloured label can be incredibly useful for stock controlling, rotation mailings, dispatch and ID labels that identify products by label colour.
Coloured labels can also work well in an office setting, identifying similar files or subjects, saving you hours of time in locating the documents you need.
Coloured labels can be used to mark the week’s most urgent tasks, as well as to label file cabinets in an office. They can also be used to indicate employee absences and holidays on a calendar.
In addition to their original colour, these labels can also be over-printed with another colour using inkjet, laser or thermal printing. The level of flexibility is also virtually unlimited, allowing you to create your own design. In no time, your colour labels can be printed for promotional or personal use.
Coloured labels allow businesses to project a professional image. Brand enhancement, as well as a unique look when compared to other labels are two ways to achieve greater impact. Even if an original logo is little more than a plain black outline, having a colour behind it can add loads of contrast, which can attract even more attention.
Depending on the material they are made from, coloured labels can offer resistance and durability. Many types of labels are resistant to things like sunlight, humidity and frost, in addition to regular wear and tear.
And although not often an aspect that’s focused on, few can argue the user-friendliness of the coloured label. There is no need to understand anything beyond where on a product you wish the label to be placed.
Another business benefit in having coloured labels professionally printed is that you can save a lot of time and money doing it yourself. Believe it or not, sometimes a large volume produced by a professional printer is more cost effective than printing out labels at home, one at a time.
Formats and Finishes
Coloured inkjet labels are available in several formats. Whether an A4 sheet or coloured roll-fed thermal labels, these products can also be made with a range of finishes including thermal transfer and direct thermal. There are other label types, such as vinyl and polyester which can withstand wear and tear over months and years.
Should You Have Your Coloured Labels Printed Professionally?
Although you may think it is easier to print your labels yourself, there are many benefits to getting them professionally printed. If you’re a small company, it’s likely you don’t have the time, staff or resources to do printing work in-house, especially when there’s so much else to take care of. A professional printer has the equipment and the know-how to create the quality labels you need.
