At Hub Labels, our huge variety of label face stocks means you’ll have lots of options to create a unique and custom pressure sensitive label, commonly referred to as a PS Label or Prime Label. From standard clear label films and white BOPP, to estate stocks and wood-grained labels, you’ll be able to find a material that works with your budget and your sustainability goals.
All labels printed at Hub Labels are custom-made to work on your specific product because we know a one-size fits all approach to labels rarely works. We’ll ask questions to learn your label requirements and demands for the product lifecycle. Our team of experts is ready to help if problems do arise, we will help you solve your application situation.
No matter your label demands, we have a solution! Pressure-sensitive labels are a great solution to brand your product as they provide high-quality resolution and brilliant color with plenty of embellishments to pop your package off the shelves to catch the eye of the consumer. Contact Hub Labels to print your product prime labels.
Once you’ve chosen an adhesive and face stock for your custom label it’s time to think about adding a finish to your label. Label finishes can transform a label’s look and take a product to the next level. We offer laminations with textured properties such as leather or soft rose-petal. Research has found that the more sense you can activate when a consumer is shopping, the more likely they will buy a product that activates the sense. These luxury label laminations are typically seen on specialty products that demand a higher price.
Our laminations and varnishes are not just for looks though. This protective coating can actually protect inks from fading due to UV exposure or prevent colors from running due to water exposure. We offer both glossy and matte finishes that will offer you a polished, professional look with superior protection.
What are label embellishments? The common components (blog post about construction of a label) of a label include an adhesive, a face stock, ink and a lamination. An embellishment is part of the label design but is not ink (well, not typically but more on that later). The most common label embellishment, cold foil, is a layer of silver or gold foil that provides simmer to the label design. Inks can be printed on top of the cold foil to create custom coil foils. Ususally incorporated as an accent area, you typically see cold foils applied to borders or text.
We also offer label embossing which is typical in the distillery and wine markets. With embossing, we use pressure to press a design into a printed label that results in a raised portion of the label that can create a high-end, look to demand a higher price on the store shelves.
Remember when we said inks are not an embellishment? We do offer specialty inks that are scented, fluorescent, metallic or invisible and can only be seen under black lights. With the label embellishments we are able to manufacturer, you can transfer your label from a one-dimensional label to something that thrills and delights leaving a consumer with a package they never want to throw away.
When ordering labels, it’s important to keep in mind how you will be applying the label to your product. We offer you several different options for how you receive the final product. The most common way to receive labels is in roll form which works with a broad range of label sizes, shapes and printing techniques making it an ideal labeling solution for many projects or as sheeted labels that make a great promotional handout, publication insert or sticker sheet. Not only do we offer labels on a roll in a variety of wind directions, Hub Labels offers continuous forms, fan-folded, sheeted labels and much more.
Interested in continuous forms for direct mail? Our continuous strip of forms can be separated by perforations and/or perforated folds. Fanfold labels fold accordion style into individual stacks and are designed to stack easier and take less storage space than rolled labels. Seriously, we are here to help make your life easier!
We produce more than just labels for food and other household products. If you need something to stick and its 21 inches or smaller, we will find a label solution to work for your unique scenario.
From durable labels that need to withstand the harshest elements, to labels that prevent counterfeiting with advanced security features, we can help. We have worked with thermoform facilities for specialty projects including face mask stickers donated to essential workers.
We also manufacturer linerless labels, ideal for skin pack trays. This revolutionary label has zero liner waste and can improve production efficiencies. As more retailers moves towards meeting sustainability goals, many food producers are examining their production lines for solutions that will help them meet retailers demands to be more sustainable.
