Because our labels are offered with a custom size option, you won't find a standard size listed on this page. You're free to choose any size or shape!
To order a bespoke shape, please choose the 'bespoke shape' option below. You will need to set up your artwork with a cutter guide, using a spot colour to represent the bespoke shape.
Tip: Avoid sharp edges in your bespoke shape design, as it may cause the label to tear when peeled from the backing.
Enter the number of different artwork versions you would like to print using the same product specification (size, quantity, stock, lamination etc).

Available for use on clear and silver metallic stocks only, either for spot, tinted or a mixture of both.
This is a mid-brilliance silver ink, similar to Pantone 877C. It can be used alone or with a CMYK topping to create a variety of metallic effects. We recommend printing solid rather than tinted.
A layer of opaque ink will be printed under your CMYK ink to make your Label appear less transparent.
NB: although this option is not 100% opaque, it is suitable for over-labelling pre-printed products.

Coatings are unavailable with Rustique Uncoated Paper.
Gloss UV coating:
For a glossy and scratch-resistant finish, we recommend a gloss coating on all high ink coverage Labels. Most writing instruments will not be able to write on this.
Satin UV coating:
Gives Labels a satin finish with a subtle surface shine. Like gloss, this coating is recommended for Labels with high ink coverage. Most writing instruments will not be able to write on this.
Matt UV coating:
Gives Labels a soft matt finish. This coating is not recommended for Labels with a high ink coverage where good scratch resistance is required. Most writing instruments will be able to write on this. This coating can give clear Labels a milky effect.
Rough Touch UV coating:
Gives Labels a sandy/rough finish. This coating is recommended for Labels with high ink coverage. You cannot write on this finish. This coating will give clear Labels a milky effect.
Overprinting and write-ability:
None of our Labels are guaranteed for machine overprinting, although some finishes can be written on with permanent markers. If you decide not to coat your Labels, we recommend you print them on our paper substrate, which is less glossy than the PP option.
The table below shows the gloss level, scuff resistance and writability of each UV coating finish offered. Generally, paper substrates are easier to write on and for high ink coverages scuff less, regardless of coating finish.

Lamination is unavailable with Rustique Uncoated Paper.
Soft Touch, Anti Scuff and Linen Lamination are not available with Clear PP Plastic.
Applied By Hand
We will automatically select the most cost effective options for Labels that are being applied by hand.
Applied By Machine
If your Labels are being applied by a machine, you will need to check the specific requirements of your labelling machine before choosing any of the options listed. Please observe the orientation messages when you add to the basket.
If you are planning to apply your labels on a machine then you may want to specify the direction the label leads with on the roll.
If you are applying your Labels by hand, we have automatically selected the most cost-effective orientation for you.
If you apply your Labels using a machine, you can choose whether they are wound facing outward or inward.
You have the option to change the core diameter size of your Label roll if you plan to apply them with a machine. Choose from 3 sizes: 76mm, 38mm and 25mm.
The measurements shown are inner diameters (ID). The default ID is 76mm. We recommend the 76mm size for Label application by hand.
Roll widths below 35mm can have maximum roll diameters upto 165mm.
Roll widths below 50mm can have maximum roll diameters upto 200mm.
You have the option to reduce or increase your roll diameter for manual Label application. If you’re distributing rolls of Labels to multiple users, you may want to reduce this.
The actual approximate outer diameter of each roll is displayed in your order summary, along with the number of Labels you will receive on that roll.
This allows you to select a larger gap between your labels, this can be useful for some machine applicators. The default is 3mm for polypropylene and 4mm for papers.
You can change how sharp the corners of your square or rectangular Labels are. Choose from 0mm to 10mm, depending on your finished size. For PP plastic stocks the default corner radius is 0mm which is a 'sharp' corner, whilst the default for the paper stocks is 3mm.
This option allows you to specify the number of labels across each roll.
This option is recommended for hand-application only, as machine application requires Labels to be laid out in single file down the length of a roll.
We will automatically calculate all the possible roll configurations for your given Label size, and you can choose whichever suits you.
