Custom Jar & Jam Labels = Delicious!
Don’t settle for anything less than the best! Your products will be the talk of the town especially with custom jar labels. Whether your jar holds jam, vegetables, soap, honey or lotion, think about how your product is going to be used. Create your jar label to emphasize the look and feel of your product. The custom label for your jar should include your branding and company name, directions for use, and ingredients. With all of that great information, you need to make sure that your jar labels last for the life of the product. How terrible would it be to have the writing on the label rub off or worse fall off all together after just a few uses. Having high-quality jar labels printed by a professional label printing company is going to give you not only the look that you are going for, but stick-to-it longevity.
Here are a couple tips on the custom materials that you can use for your jar labels depending on whether your product is going to be refrigerated or stored in the cupboard.
If you’re product gets stored in the fridge it’s going to be more susceptible to condensation every time it’s taken out, especially during the hot summer months. Items such as jams, jellies, fruits and vegetables generally hold their shelf life the longest if they are refrigerated once they are opened. For these jar labels, the best material to use is a white BOPP with a high gloss or matte laminate. These custom labels will hold up to the moisture and keep on sticking!
Shelf Stable Jars
Products like honey, oils, soaps, and lotion are fine sitting out on the counter or stored in the cupboard. With these products you don’t have to worry about the environment changing too much. For these jar labels, a paper material will work great even without a laminate. This also allows you to write on your labels with any type of writing utensil, allowing you to create truly one-of-a-kind custom label if you’d like. Paper materials can also be a cost-effective way to save some money but still get a professional look and feel.
