Extend the Life of Your Labels
Label storage is a simple and extremely cost-effective way to extend the life of your labels. All it takes is a temperature-controlled room (60 degrees to 75 degrees Fahrenheit) and a plastic bag. Simply place the sheets or rolls of labels inside the plastic bag. Sealing the bag isn’t necessary.
Folding the bag under the label sheets or pushing the bag into the roll is acceptable, as long as air doesn’t circulate around the labels. Keep the labels out of the sun and there you have it.
Why a plastic bag? Keeping the labels in a clean environment prevents tiny dust particles from collecting around the edges of a label. These particles can give the edges a dirty appearance.
A temperature controlled area is necessary because heat affects the viscosity of the adhesive. Labels exposed to heat will stick to one another, making a sticky mess of a roll of labels.
Labels can last for years if stored appropriately. However, the same cannot be said for logos and contact details. If your labels need to be updated or you need new labels to have a look at our downloads in our newsletter. Sign up today.
