About Us

Readability was formed in 1992 to address the needs of the growing number of supermarket suppliers needing to barcode for the first time. Our growth to date has been based on our first class product and service quality. Since we started we have always liked to talk with our customers which is why the phone number above is so big!

We aim to be better than the usual label and thermal ribbon supply company. Each Readability client has their own, named head office (meet the team) contact to ensure you are kept up to date with orders, manufacturing lead times, new products and special offers.

Our feedback

“I have been extremely happy with the service offered by Chris, Philippa and the wider Readability team. The labels enhance the bottle and give my brand a boost. Integrating the tactile warning triangle label into the primary 10ml e-liquid bottle label was an excellent idea – it gives a much more professional look whilst satisfying the BS/ISO11683 requirement. Also I now only apply 1 label rather than 2 saving time and money.”

Request Sample Pack

“The organic juices we sell are 100% natural, full of goodness and nutrition. The packaging forms a key element of our marketing – it reflects the purity of the product inside. We have a range of flavours and whilst the bottles and label design are the same for all flavours the ingredients are obviously different for each. Readability are able to produce multiple labels for our different flavours quickly and cost effectively. When we trial a new flavour it is also really helpful that with Readability we don’t have to buy thousands of labels – we can have whatever quantity we want without any cost penalty. Our juices are frozen so the labels do need to be able to withstand freezing and then thawing without peeling off the bottle. We know we can trust Readability to supply high quality labels every time.”
