Jar Labels and Bottle Labels
We are specialist suppliers of jar labels and bottle labels and there are many different considerations and options when it comes to the labelling of jars and bottles. The great thing is that just like the bottles and jars themselves, so the labels come in different shapes and sizes and having the right shaped label is important.
Paper labels with a glossy finish are the most common material used for labelling jars and bottles. Paper is generally the most cost-effective and the glossy finish works best with digital printers. This also gives the impression of quality compared to uncoated jar labels.
Antique white laid material is a paper label which has a narrow and ribbed texture with a subtle ‘antique’ white colour. Specifically designed for use as a wine bottle label, this is also a great option for other bottles that may be immersed in ice buckets or in chillers without degrading the label.
The reason for using quality labels is that drinks companies and distilleries want to be sure that the bottle labels represent their brand and the quality of beverage experience that they are selling. It is a case of the higher the value of the product, the better quality of labels used.
Breweries use a different type of label for glass beer bottles that is called a water wash-off label. This is a label with a permanent adhesive that will wash off in hot water. It makes the process of rebottling a simpler task. This is used for other beverages too, such as premium cider, soft drinks, cordials and fizzy drinks.
Jar Labels And Special Finishes
Metallic materials are also often used for jar labels and bottle labels and these labels can be digitally printed – CMYK plus white ink. Please see more about our range of Printed Roll Labels here and a link to a video of the in-house laminating of labels process at our Sandbach factory.
Jams, pickles and confectionery packed in glass jars often have a jar seal label. This is a shaped label that sticks to the lid and has a strip which folds down and sticks to the jar acting as a seal. When the jar is opened the seal tears which shows that the jar has been opened. These jar labels are mostly pre-printed with branding or other advertising.
