Custom Labelling Solutions
Whatever you need the label to stick to we have likely done it before, wherever that label lives we will know how to make it stick. We have a wide range of adhesives that don’t give up on the first sight of a freezer or little water. Some of our window stickers don’t even need adhesive, static labels.
If someone has said it’s not possible, our label labs will attempt to find a solution.

Attract your customers in an engaging way with our range of scratch and sniff labels. Use your label to promote other products within your range, offer shoppers a sample of the perfume, deodorant or lotion they are getting when buying your products or show them how delicious your range of air fresheners and candles smell. Our range of smelly printed labels includes a wide selection of standard smells, from chocolate to compost heap, or you can choose to have your own custom perfume created.
Please note that scented labels require purchasing of specialist inks not usually used. Minimum order quantities are higher than more standard labels using non-scented inks.
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
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.

“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.
Tamper proof labels
“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.
