Product Label Printing
Whatever the product or situation we’ve likely printed a label for that before. Choose from a wide range of material choices from papers to synthetics with an almost limitless number of finishes. We don’t get scared by freezers, a little water or oil. Some of our labels don’t even need adhesive like the static cling label for windows or televisions.
Print Finishes Explained
Popular on e-liquid and cosmetics labels. This shiny metallic finish can make product packaging and packaging design look professional, sophisticated and eye-catching. These can be golden (metallic satin) or brushed aluminium incorporated in a suitable design the results are wonderful.
Textured, Tactile or Braille Labels
Screen printing or silkscreen printing is a method used to add texture to labels, our tactile warning labels are made with a special resin going through this print process on a clear pp. It can be used on any product to add definition to a label it’s often found on exclusive products.
Products needing to portray premium experience with real depth will excel using textured labels that enhance the visuals and make the product feel unique. Embossed labels add to packaging, instantly people feel the difference from other products they pick up in the store, soon they will associate that extra sense to your products. Design a label that stands out on the shelf and let the customer feel the difference before the bottle is even open.
Stay on top of labelling legislation when you order with Readability, It’s one of the bits of added value we provide our customers with every day. Keeping on top of legislation will help you steer clear of the “label police”.
Labelling compliance is a hot topic with changes on the horizon for every industry from food labelling to chemical labelling to the labelling of e-liquids. It is imperative to have the right substrate and inks to suit the product and application. All are important to avoid falling foul of the legal eagles.Chris Edney MD
Label Printing – Construction
Pre-Printed Labels on Rolls
Custom labels printed on rolls in any winding direction. Most of our customers will be using some kind of label application machine, either a filler automated print and apply set up or a bottle labelling machine. With these bits of equipment, you will need to have a label of the correct winding to match up to your machine.
On the other hand if you are hand applying labels the orientation on the roll is less important, in these cases we will simply choose the cheapest option.
Buying labels pre-printed means you don’t become a print house. Our digital presses can produce more labels quicker, to higher quality with precisely the finishes wanted, that just aren’t available on a colour label printer.

Integrated Tactile Warning Triangle Labels
Integrated tactile warning labels can be manufactured with the tactile warning triangle incorporated into the label. An integrated label involves the raised triangle being screen printed onto your product label as a single process immediately after the label has been professionally printed.
The integrated triangle warning labels are compliant with legislation and are more aesthetically pleasing, with an attractive look and feel which can actually enhance your product. The integration of the raised triangle into the product label removes the requirement for a separate application process, saving time.
Peel and Read labels
“Ideal for promoting complementary products, listing ingredients, multilingual labelling, instructions for storage, usage and preparation, recipes, tips and warnings” peel and read labels from Readability.
Peel and read labels, also referred to as Peel and Reveal, multi-layer or extended content labels are a cost-effective way to increase the content of your label without altering its size, shape and overall appeal.
Reverse print Labels
“Ideal for promoting prizes and competitions, promotional codes and discount vouchers”
Reverse print labels are peelable labels printed on both sides. Once removed the label reveals the content printed on the back. Readability can supply this printed label format in any shape, size and colours that you require.
“A great anti-tamper deterrent”
Used where a product needs to be economically labelled to show evidence of opening or removal. Labels can be fully printed to your artwork on the face coat with a further option to print a void message on the reverse which will remain on the package.
“Covert or overt security through the label”
Readability can print invisible UV onto your labels. The print is completely invisible to the naked eye although will be revealed clearly under UV light. Due to the often complex nature of security print labels we would prefer to discuss your requirements individually rather than explain the processes in detail on our website.
