Frequently asked questions about labels for co-packers

Getting Started

What label materials and finishes do you offer?

We offer a variety of label materials made of paper, film (BOPP), or vinyl. Our paper stocks include standard white and metalized paper stocks, as well as specialty types like brown kraft, estate paper, wine stock, thermal transfer, freezer-grade, and all-temperature-grade.

You also have many film stocks to choose from — white, clear, metalized, holographic, pearlescent, and squeezable materials. Further customize your label, while adding a layer of protection, with a laminate or UV coating such as matte, gloss, satin/soft-touch, heavy-duty gloss, and imprintable varnish.

What are popular label types for private labels?

White BOPP film is like a blank canvas to make your label artwork pop or provide a clean, modern look. For an eye-catching effect, we recommend metalized stock and foil printing techniques to make your product shine on the shelves.

Another option to enhance your labels is with textures and dual UV coating to give your labels a unique tactile feel. Labels have limited space to display information, which is why we also offer high-quality multi-layer labels that peel back and re-seal with ease.

What’s the difference between adhesive types? / Which adhesive do I need?

Your product’s use and storage location will influence which adhesive type to use. Many of our label materials come with permanent adhesives due to versatility, durability, and cost.

Permanent adhesives create a strong bond, making them ideal for products that need labels to adhere to for a long time. For product labels that will encounter harsher conditions, we recommend using a label material with an aggressive, high-tack permanent adhesive.

Removable adhesives are perfect for temporary labeling like promotional stickers and price tags. Repositionable adhesives offer a short-term removability within a time frame — best suited for labels that will be hand-applied. And lastly, wash-away adhesive labels are used primarily for containers that are meant to be recycled.

What is the maximum label printing width?

We understand that many products come in containers with large circumferences, which is why our printing presses can accommodate label widths up to 21.5 inches. Not sure what label size to order? Please give us a call at 1-800-475-2235.

Should my private labels be durable?

If your product will be stored in bathrooms or kitchens, then your labels should be durable and water-resistant. Shrink sleeves and film labels have superior performance than paper labels when exposed to moisture, grease, or chemicals.

We can also add a laminate finish to the printed label to increase durability. Furthermore, consider selecting a high-tack permanent adhesive to prevent the label from curling off the container.

Printing & Application

Do you offer specialty printing capabilities?

Yes! We offer a variety of specialty printing capabilities like metallic inks, cold foil stamping, multi-layer, texturizing, and more. Let our team know what you want to achieve and we’ll guide you to the right printing techniques and materials to get the job done.

Can you print shrink sleeves and flexible packaging?

In addition to custom labels, Consolidated Label® also prints shrink sleeves and flexible packaging for your products. Shrink sleeves elevate products by conforming completely to a container with 360-degrees graphics coverage. Flexible packaging — such as packets, sachets, and stick packs — is a portable solution that offers superior barrier protection and visual appeal.

Do you offer prototyping?

We offer prototyping for shrink sleeves and flexible packaging so you can see what your finished product will look like before placing an order. Prototyping offers many benefits, such as detecting errors early to save time and money, improving team collaboration, understanding product functionality, and pitching your product.

Are printed proofs and sample runs available for custom labels?

Yes, we offer printed proofs on all orders for a small shipping fee so you can make sure the colors and print quality are to your satisfaction. We also offer sample runs for custom labels in quantities over 100. Please call our customer service at 1-800-475-2235 to set this up.

Can you apply my labels, shrink sleeves, or flexible packaging?

While we don’t offer application services or sell equipment, we’ll set up our print products in a way that works with your equipment (e.g. label applicators, steam tunnels, and form-fill-seal machines) for a smooth application process. Our support team can also help troubleshoot application issues to get your production back up and running.

Will I be assigned a rep?

Yes! You’ll have a dedicated rep assigned to your account, as well as access to our knowledgeable staff that’s available for any and all questions. Our support team is here to be used as a resource, and if we don’t offer what you’re looking for, like purchasing equipment or finding a graphic designer, we’ll point you in the right direction.

Security

How can you improve security measures for packaging?

Tamper-evident shrink bands are one of our most popular security solutions. A shrink band around the container’s neck and cap can show when the product has been opened or damaged.

We also offer other measures to boost security and counterfeit protection, such as micro text techniques, “invisible” UV ink watermarks, and Izon security tapes. If you’re interested in our label security options, please give us a call at 1-800-475-2235.

What is your quality process?

From ordering to shipping, we exceed standards by following strict quality assurance checks. We also maintain multiple certifications, continually improving our facility so our customers receive superior products and reliable lead times. Our GMI certification and ISO registration are up-to-date, plus we’re part of the Target Packaging and Walgreens Packaging programs to reduce waste.

Compliance & Regulation

What does my label design have to include?

The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA) requires that all “consumer commodities” be labeled to disclose net contents, the identity of the commodity, as well as the name and place of business of the product’s manufacturer, packer, or distributor. In addition to your branding and product information, you’ll need to make sure your label contents are compliant with regulations.

Who regulates product labels?

Labeling regulations are administered by a combination of federal and state agencies. Labeling for foods, drugs, supplements, and cosmetics is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s the responsibility of the product owner to ensure the information on their labels isn’t false or misleading.
