Should I be using labels on a roll?

With over 30 years of experience working with businesses to deliver exceptional custom printing solutions, one of the things we frequently get asked is, ‘Should I be using labels on a roll?’

Unfortunately, there is no straightforward yes or no answer. Whether you should be using labels on a roll or sheet labels comes down to what you’re using the labels for and how frequently you’re using them.

If you’re wondering if labels on a roll are right for your business, here are some things to consider:

Roll labels can save you time & money

If you’re a relatively small business or if you don’t send out large volumes of stock, you may be able to get away with using sheet labels. However, as your business scales-up, you’ll probably need to consider something more efficient, such as labels on a roll. Plus, if you’re moving to the automatic application of labels, most machines can only work with roll labels.

However, if you do decide to continue to apply your labels by hand, labels on a roll are easier and quicker to apply than sheet labels.

Greater design choices over sheet labels

One of the most notable benefits of labels on a roll is that you can print labels in near enough any shape, style and colour you like. If you operate in a saturated market, or if your business is relatively new and you’re trying to carve out a name for yourself, a custom label can really help your brand stand out.

With decades of print experience, Hague will work with you to create a label design which is unique to your business.

Roll labels cut back on wastage

If you have been creating your labels using sheet labels on a standard printer, you’ll know what a pain it can be to make sure the labels are correctly aligned. And, even if you’ve been extra careful, there are always some labels which come out ‘wonky’ – meaning they’re unusable.

Using a professional printing company to create labels on a roll, will cut back on the time you spend printing labels and you’ll be guaranteed a perfectly printed label every time. Plus, it will cut back on wastage, which is great for the planet and over time it will save you money.

In summary, labels on a roll can offer you money and time-saving opportunities if you are sending out substantial volumes of stock. Or, if you’re looking for a label design which will really set you apart from your competitors, a custom designed print label on a roll will certainly do this.
