General Questions

Can I run them through an inkjet or laser printer?

Yes we supply high-speed A4 laser labels or inkjet labels guaranteed A4 label paper, which is 100% compatible and can be used for both applications. They will also work in most Photocopiers.

Is your laser label A4 Label paper environmentally friendly?

Our face material is recyclable (as its paper) and manufactured from sustainable sources, the backing is silicon which is not recyclable, but throughout production we also look to reduce the impact on the environment and any waste is kept to an absolute minimum.

Your labels are really sticky - do you offer an alternative?

Our standard stock laser labels are a permanent adhesive labels, we do offer a removable adhesive label (peelable) which when stuck can be peeled away and also a freezer adhesive. Contact us for more information.

I stick my labels to recycled boxes; can I apply A4 laser labels to other products?

Our A4 stock laser labels & inkjet laser have a strong permanent adhesive, which is great for most types of packaging, and many other surfaces.

What is the best way to feed label sheets into my printer?

Most printer manufacturers recommend that labels be fed into their machine narrow edge leading. This is the only option for most small office printers or printers that we might have at home. Some larger machines give the option to run paper narrow or wide edge leading, but with labels it is still best to run them narrow edge leading.

Will the laser labels be the same as my last order?

Absolutely, we source the same high speed laser guaranteed paper directly from the mill every time because our product works so efficiently, why change something when it is perfect. There can be slight variations from batch to batch but these will not affect the way the labels run.

How do I get the best out of my A4 laser labels?

Simple, a few easy steps:
Depending on your printer make and model you can tell it via your printing software or the printers control panel that you want to run laser labels. Setting you machine up in this way will help to ensue best possible results & reliability.
Due to the” sandwich” like construction of label material it is important that your latest delivery is allowed to “Acclimatise” to your local conditions for approx 48 hours. To do this just keep the sheets in the boxes and inner bags they came in. And positioned close to the printer in which they will be used. Avoid storing near direct heat sources such as radiator, widows etc.

Stack the boxes no more than 5 high.
If you have bulk storage that is not adjacent to the printer, this is ok, but always allow the product time to acclimatise before printing as detailed above. In bulk storage the product can tolerate quite wide ranging temperatures of 5 to 30Deg C without suffering any permanent damage.

Before loading the next wad of labels to your printer don’t be frightened to handle them. Flexing and fanning will help the sheets feed and run more reliably.

I have heard that recycled toners can be a problem with labels?

Yes this is true, the label industry as recommends using original toners for the very best results. The most likely problem you may experience from recycled toners is poor toner adhesion. (Toner has not been properly fused, leading to smudging and poor image quality).

How easy is it to set up the print for your labels?

Most of our label layouts are compatible we the pre-formatted layouts contained within Microsoft Word, Access, Excel etc and many other software programs And then it’s usually a case of identifying the label size and number on the sheet and away you go!

Do you put any of your own advertising on the paper?

Definitely not, we feel this spoils the product, as we want you to promote your business and reflect the professional transactions to your clients. All our stock laser label sheets are plain high white. A back print can also be a problem if you need to photocopy a sheet, as the back print will often show through enough to mark the copy. On special orders we can print “which way” the labels need to be feed, or loaded in a printer, we do here of customers printing up side down on the backing sheet.

Material Questions

What is a Peelable adhesive? (REM)

How do waterproof labels work? (MWP) (MWPE) (GWP) (MTP) (GTP) (GTPP) (GCP)

We are into how long is a piece of string territory here…. So you need a label that could survive getting wet, so the next question is how long and under what conditions! For a short period you can get away with some of our Semi Gloss Paper (SGW) and in the other extreme you may want to label some chemicals that fall under the requirements of BS5609, where the labels must withstand saltwater immersion and abrasion testing as if they had been washed off a ship and run up a beach! Our MWP & MWPE materials both meet BS5609

Matt white polyethylene with a permanent adhesive – BS5609 part 2
approved (MWPE)

A special matt white polyethylene (PE) specifically designed for use on ‘hot fuse’
printer systems (laser & copier) and in some cases the material can be printed using
inkjet technology, but testing is required. This material also conforms to BS5609 part
2 for marine immersion.

Adhesive

of surfaces. Specially designed for the labelling of chemical drums.
Minimum application temp. +5°C
Storage range once applied -30°C to +100°C

Thickness 84 microns

What are the types of tear proof Labels? (MWP) (MWPE) (GWP) (MTP) (GTP) (GTPP) (GCP)

As with waterproof, tear proof labels is slightly misleading in that anything can be torn/split eventually but any of our plastic labels provide a good degree of tear resistance at their die cut edges. However, if you need tear resistance after the label is punctured then things are little trickier and a special material may be required sometimes called Vinyl labels. MWP is very tear resistant in both directions from a die cut edge. The MWPE material is softer and more inclined to stretch before it tears; usually splits are worse down the long direction.

What are the tempreture for Freezer labels? (DF)

Our standard freezer labels can go down to -20 deg if applied in good conditions, however for true deep freeze applications and for blast freezing you need a true deep freeze adhesive which will enable the labels to still stay attached at -40 deg. A true deep freeze adhesive can in most cases also be applied to already frozen items, where the standard labels need to be applied above +5 deg.
