Because high quality color label stock works for many different products, the same features in a single type of label offer benefits for all sorts of companies. Take water-resistant labels as an example: these can be sized to match the packaging of products that don't seem to have that much in common other than exposure to liquid or moisture.
It's better to be safe than sorry, and for labels, water-resistance may make a huge difference in terms of the durability of an item after it is exposed to the elements. Drawing from different examples in our store, here are four types of labels that can stand to get wet, and why that is helpful:
- Candy labels: Sticky fingers and melting chocolate are less of a problem when the product is covered with a durable label. The colors will still be vivid and the writing easy to see.
- Coffee and tea labels: Beverage packages are frequently exposed to liquid. Coffee and tea bags in particular are often left out while water is brewed, so water-resistance could keep the packages ready in case any of it splashes out.
- Lip balm: Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP), which protects against oil and water, can be applied to lip balm. Since lip balm tubes are small, a little bit of water could spread over one entire container. Fortunately, strong labels will keep the logo and product information protected.
Polypropylene labels are resistant to more than just liquids: they also stand up to scratches, grease and punctures, and are compatible with the Primera LX900 color label printer. This equipment gives businesses all the advantages of durable labels that will stay in good condition throughout a product's shelf life, as well as a variety of colors to choose from for a strong design.
