What Makes Labels Noticeable?

Labels communicate. Billions of messages everyday are communicated by labels on everything from product packaging to workplace warnings. For many applications, printing labels is the best value for effectively communicating a message. The best suppliers, My1Stop.com and others,  know that their job is to provide you with effective and reasonably priced labels. Here’s what they know . . .

Simple Designs Work Best
Printing labels that are effective demands a simple, organized approach to design.  The best designs display a single powerfully relevant image and as little text as possible on the labels.  As an example, the most successful food product labels often display the source of the food (wheat stalks for breads, fruits for lotions, tomatoes for soups). Entire brands have been built on the simple, highly significant image that nails the key selling feature of the product. Typically, these labels are based on a few words and the image in a highly uncluttered design.


In industrial applications, large, easily identifiable images can mean the difference between serious injury and safety. As an example, when you see a lightning bolt on a label next to industrial equipment – you automatically and immediately know to be careful in your surroundings. Imagine what could happen if there was no lightning bolt and a few paragraphs of vey small text citing the many dangers of electrical shock in the general area!


Colors Make All The Difference
An old adage when printing labels used to be “color – costs”. Printing labels digitally has significantly reduced the cost of full color labels – and extraordinarily increased the quality of all types of labels – that the old adage is no longer true.  Great suppliers of labels will save you money when you need multiple colors in your labels.

But what colors to use? For products, use photographs in full color. Keep the images relevant and simple and expect photo quality labels to bring you great consumer response. When designing labels for an industrial application, think fluorescents; orange, red, yellow and flat black are the mainstays.


Materials Matter
Printing labels on the right materials will guarantee that your labels are visible and durable. There are so many choices of materials for printing labels, that you can match the perfect material to any applications – from simple paper labels on product packages to exotic substrates designed for the exteriors of submarines – there’s a perfect label material for your project.

Getting the right materials for your labels is all about having the right supplier. Be sure to get expert materials advise from your supplier before printing your labels with them.
