When it comes to labels for products, Synthetic/ polypropylene is easily the most popular material. It is durable and works extremely well for liquid based products. It is commonly used for water bottle labels, freezer labels and honey labels.
If your product does not contain liquids, or if it is not being placed into a fridge/freezer, then you might opt for paper-based labels. They are an environmentally friendly and cost-effective label solution. To see more, click here.
All labels for products by LabEx are produced right here in Australia. Other businesses produce some labels in Australia, with the majority of their work manufactured overseas. LabEx does not produce anylabels outside of Australia.
Labels for products need to withstand scuffing and any potential damage. We apply a protective layer of laminate to all our labels. As standard, all labels come with a gloss laminate. A matt laminate option is also available and can be selected from a drop-down menu.

Allow for 3mm bleed on each side.
For example, if your final finished
size is 50mm x 50mm, you will need
to set your artwork to be 56mm x
Allow for 2mm around the trim
area as the safe zone. For example,
if your final finished size is 50mm x
50mm, you will need to ensure that
all important information is set
within 48mm x 48mm.
Ensure all artwork is set up as CMYK
and NOT RBG.
DO NOT add crop marks to your
artwork. Our system will add this
for you. If you add your own crop
marks then this may get printed
on the artwork.
