What Type Of Label Do You Need?
Ensuring that you find the right label for your business or product needs can be a real challenge. With so many options available, it can be difficult to make a decision on the right label for your requirements.
Here we will discuss some of the most commonly used labels across a range of industries, whilst giving some insight into the applications and sectors they are best suited to be used within.
The range of durable labels on offer here at GSM Graphic Arts are suitable for most industries thanks to their properties. We stock a range of durable labels, including Industrial Strength, Plastic and even Heavy-Duty variants, so you can rest assured that you will find the right type of label for your needs.
If you work within an industrial setting and require a label with the properties to match those surroundings, we are capable of manufacturing durable labels on a stainless-steel nameplate. Depending on your requirements and the setting the label will be within, we may suggest either 304 or 316 stainless steel nameplates.
To ensure these labels are suitable for use in even the harshest of environments, we are capable of printing on these labels using the etching process whereby we chemically etch the text detail and then paint infill to provide an extremely durable and hard-wearing finish.
If you are looking for a versatile label that is suitable for a number of applications, plastic labels offer an unrivalled flexibility when compared to other labels on the market. We find that the plastic labels that we manufacture end up being used in a wide range of industries, from the catering & refrigeration sector to the electronics & assembly industries and everything in between.
A basic plastic label is perfect for the cost conscious business, who are looking for a basic label that doesn’t need to withstand too many external pressures; however, we are capable of manufacturing more robust forms of plastic label if you require, thanks to our extensive portfolio of printing processes we have available in house.
Plastic labels are commonly used to signpost key messages around a business premises, but are also extensively used to clearly communicate and advise of any potential dangers within the workplace. To make your label really stand out, we can apply a finish that will most definitely catch your employees or guests eye.
Weatherproof labels are an ideal solution for anyone who is looking for labelling solutions for outdoor applications. They are commonly used on garden and ground-keeping machinery, sheds and outbuildings, as well as fencing and farm equipment; but you’ll also find weatherproof labels in the offshore oil and gas industry as the labels are more than capable of withstanding the punishing environments faced by offshore oil rigs.
Our range of weatherproof labels are manufactured and have been tested in line with ANSI specifications for UV durability – this means that our weatherproof outdoor labels will remain legible for a minimum of 5 years.
Not only are we capable of printing text onto this type of label, we can also produce logo badges or warning labels that will also stand the test of time – so you can rest assured that weatherproof labels can be used for a whole host of applications in a number of sectors.
Security labels are an ideal solution for any business looking to ensure their products remain completely protected and to keep a unique identification on each individual product. Security labels are completely tamperproof and can be printed with your logo and a serial number or barcode depending on your requirements.
We manufacture our range of security labels on a self-adhesive material, which means that once it’s stuck onto any product, it’s extremely difficult to remove as the substrate breaks down into a number of smaller pieces. All of this means that the security sticker simply cannot be removed and placed onto another product for any reason.
This type of label is especially useful for any products that you may want to add a ‘warranty void if used’ clause to; as all you need to do is place the label across a join in the products packaging or casing and when this is taken apart it will obviously tear. This will give you undisputable evidence that the product has been tampered with and therefore cannot be returned.
