Should You Use Heavy Duty or Paper Labels?


Heavy Duty Labels

When you need a more durable label, heavy duty labels are the way to go. They are waterproof, tearproof and resistant to oils, UV, sun and fading. Heavy duty labels can stand up to water and moisture without ruining printed inks. They also last much longer than paper labels when exposed to harsher elements. Clear label are also heavy duty and are a great choice when you want to add a no-label look to clear containers.

Food & Beverage Labels

Whether your product will be stored in the refrigerator, freezer or cupboard, heavy duty labels will hold up. Condensation, sweating and spilled contents won’t affect the label, so you’ll have a professional-looking label throughout the life of the product. They work great with jams, jellies, honey, sauces and other food items. And they’re ideal to use for beer, wine and water bottle labels that might be iced down.
