Label Shape

Please select the label shape you're looking for. Yes, as we know from high school geometry a Square is also a Rectangle - but we've separated them for practical reasons and to make them easier to find.

We also have access to a collection of special shapes, but it's impractical to have them all listed on the website and would make the online quoting process unnecessarily complicated. If you do have needs for unusual shaped labels, please contact us and we can help point you in the right direction.

Label Size

The size of label you need is something only you can decide, as there's no standard label size for any given product or container. It depends on what your labels needs to say, whether you want to include images in the design, and so on. You should work with your designer to arrive at the size you feel best fits your needs.

To get a price quote, please enter the dimensions of the labels you need. All measurements are in inches, and you can use either decimals or fractions as shown. For example, if your label needs to be 5-1/4" wide and 3-3/16" high (when viewed on the product), then you could enter either 5.25 or 5-1/4 in the Width field, and either 3.188 or 3-3/16 in the Height field.

The image will adjust automatically to give a rough representation of the shape and size you've entered, but the image is not to scale - it's simply to provide a visual aid to make sure you've entered the dimensions in the right sequence to achieve the desired result.

Unwind directions are a very important part of ordering product labels on rolls - we need to know in which direction your labels need to come off the roll when you're applying them to your products. This is critical when mechanical applicators are used, but can still be important even if you hand-apply your labels.

Click here for a more detailed explanation on our FAQs page. If you don't care what direction the labels need to unwind (e.g. if you're hand applying and it's not important to you), just click "No Preference" below and we'll assume a "Right Off First" orientation (which is the most popular in our experience).

Please indicate how you intend to apply your labels to your products. If you're using some kind of mechanized applicator, choose "Machine Applied" - but if you intend to manually apply each label by hand, choose "Hand Applied".

Why is this important? Well, in many cases it isn't - but it can affect the way we create and ship the rolls of labels. For example, if the production process ends up with 5 rolls of 100 identical labels each, we have to decide whether or not to splice those rolls together into a single 500-label roll (which would certainly be the preferred outcome if a machine applicator is involved). Conversely, if you're hand-applying the labels, it is probably more practical at your end to receive multiple (smaller) rolls - so several people could be applying labels at the same time

The vast majority of labels we produce are set up for Machine application - but if you're hand-applying then it makes sense to choose that option so our production staff can try to make that task easier for you. If it doesn't matter to you, choose Hand-applied.

A "version" is a single unique design of your label - and you can have many of them to identify product variations like flavors, colors, ingredients etc. Even the images, text content and colors can be completely different between versions if you wish. Each version must be delivered to us in its own artwork file, but you can combine multiple versions into a single order.

As long as the different versions all use the same size/shape and material, our digital printing presses can gang many different versions together in a single run, thereby saving you significant amounts of money.

Please enter the combined total quantity for all your Versions - e.g. if you specified 5 versions in the previous step (maybe to represent Chocolate, Raspberry, Lemon, Vanilla, and Banana), and you wanted 500 of each flavor, then you should enter 2500 in this field.

Note: if you need different quantities for some Versions than others, that is certainly possible - but within reason. For example, if your order is for a total of 2,500 labels spread across 5 different versions, you might want 1,000 of one version, 500 each of the next two versions and 250 each for the remaining two versions (or some other logical breakdown to suit your business needs). We can usually be quite flexible in this way, but there are some practical implications if the quantities are completely randomized with no logical groupings.

For example, asking for one version of 275 labels and another of 225 makes the production process much more complicated, and may involve significant waste as well - which is something we try to avoid if possible to minimize our environmental impact. In such cases, we may reach out to you and see if there's an acceptable compromise.


Note - all our label materials are self-adhesive and can be applied to a wide range of firm flat surfaces such as plastic, glass, cardboard etc, but are not suitable for application to fabrics or leathers. If you would like to see physical samples of each of the materials, please request a complimentary sample pack here.

  • White BOPP (Plastic - Permanent Adhesive) - By far the most commonly used material in our collection. It's a thin white polypropylene film (commonly referred to as BOPP in the printing industry) that is impervious to almost any punishment and looks beautiful on your products. It delivers eye-popping color and image crispness that can't be beat.

  • White BOPP (Tight Mandrel - Permanent Adhesive) - This material has the same construction and visual properties as the standard White BOPP, but it has a special (more aggressive) adhesive designed to achieve a better bond on small-diameter products (such as lip balm sticks or very small bottles) where the label is intended to wrap around the product. The vast majority of containers do not need this level of adhesion and the standard White BOPP should normally be used unless the application justifies it. We can help you decide the most appropriate material if necessary.

  • White BOPP (Removable Adhesive) - Most of our materials feature permanent adhesives - because most products need labels that will survive prolonged use. However, if you need a more "temporary" label or sticker that can be more readily removed, our White Removable material has a special adhesive to make removal much easier.

  • Chrome BOPP (Plastic - Permanent Adhesive) - This material produces superb results in the right circumstances. The polypropylene film is specially treated during manufacture to have a "chrome-like" finish (i.e. just like the reflective silver trim on older cars). Once again, there are some design tricks that can contribute to a beautiful result, and some traps to be avoided. Feel free to ask us for guidance.

  • Clear BOPP (on Paper liner - Permanent Adhesive) - Exactly as it sounds, this is a transparent polypropylene film that is perfect for the "no label" look, allowing the product itself to show through. It does require a little more care when designing, as strong background colors can have unexpected impacts on the result. We can help you decide whether this is the best option for your products.

  • Ultra-Clear BOPP (on Clear liner - Permanent Adhesive) - This is the very same material as the one above, but it comes on a clear PET liner. This liner is usually best for high-speed automatic applicators, but one additional benefit is that the finished labels can appear a little less hazy due to the way the adhesive reacts with the liner. We strongly recommend you request samples of both Clear materials to make the best choice for your products.

  • Estate #9 (Textured paper - Cream) - If you're looking to print wine labels or beer labels, the Estate #9 material is a very popular option. It's a creamy/buff-colored paper stock with a subtle textured finish that adds a very attractive "antique" look. Note - while this material is often used for wine and beer and other short-lived products, it may not be a good choice for products that get exposed to lengthy periods of use or are exposed to extreme environmental conditions (like bath and body products, for example).

  • Estate #8 (Textured Paper - White) - Very similar to the Estate #9 in texture and usage, but the paper is white instead of cream-colored.

  • White Polyethylene (Squeezable - Permanent Adhesive) - If your product containers are subject to a lot of heavy squeezing, we have a material specifically designed for this. In most cases our standard White BOPP will withstand a reasonable amount of physical punishment, but if your product has (for example) a very thick consistency in a pliable container, then sometimes standard labels can begin to wrinkle with repeated use - whereas the Squeezable material resists this tendency to a much higher degree. We can provide samples of this material on request so you can do your own testing. 

​We also have access to a wide range of specialty materials, but choose to limit the Online Quoter to the most common options for simplicity.  Contact us if you have special needs, and we'll see if we can help.


The vast majority of our labels come with a very thin surface layer of transparent polypropylene film (called an "over-laminate") to provide a very robust protection from the elements and other external influences. We offer two different over-laminates - both options provide excellent protection from abrasion and weathering, but they can produce quite different visual effects:

Gloss is by far the most common choice, as it provides a beautiful glossy sheen to your labels and shows the underlying design in all its crisp glory.

The Matte option provides a dull, non-shiny finish and can assist in creating a quaint antique look, or perhaps just to prevent any glare from surrounding lights etc. The choice of finish is purely personal - it depends on which "look" you're trying to achieve.

The Thermal Transfer laminate is specifically designed to allow for over-printing using a thermal transfer printer (which uses ribbons to print small amounts of data like batch numbers, expiry dates etc. onto your labels). Please note - not all printers and/or ribbons are guaranteed to work with this laminate, so some testing is strongly advised - we can arrange for some raw samples for this purpose on request.

The exception to over-laminates is if you choose the Estate #8 or Estate #9 material. In order to preserve the "textured paper" look and feel, we leave the labels in their natural "unfinished" state.  Given that this material is primarily targeted at the wine and beverage industry, the labels typically don't need the same level of long-term protection that many other products do - and the textured paper allows the inks to be absorbed more than most other materials.

If you have any concerns about materials for your specific products, request a sample pack from us (via the red button on our home page) and we'll send you samples of all the common combinations to test before ordering.

Most labels are currently produced using "cutting dies" - a metal plate that essentially presses the finished shape out of the raw material (similar to a cookie-cutter in concept). We do not carry pre-cut labels and simply print on the blanks - mainly because the finished result is better if we cut everything after printing.

What this means to you is that we may not already have a die in stock for the specific shape and size you're seeking. In such cases, you have a couple of options - you could simply choose from the extensive selection of dies we do have (i.e. adjust your required size/shape), or you can ask us to have a new die made to your specifications.

Using an existing die is obviously the cheapest (and quickest) - as having a new die made costs $200 and adds a few days to the production time while the die is being manufactured and delivered to our plant. However, in some cases you may decide that you need something we don't already have and we're happy to work with you to achieve the result you require.

Rectangular labels most often have slightly rounded corners. This approach was adopted in the label industry many years ago for two primary reasons. First, it tends to make application easier on some machines - and second, once the label is applied to the product it resists the corners being "snagged" during normal use (which would quickly become unattractive).

That said, some customers simply prefer "square corners" and we're happy to produce them if asked. However, you will notice that the vast majority of our cutting dies have rounded corners because that's the most popular shape - so if you specifically need a square corner and we don't already have that die in stock, there will usually be a $200 once-off charge involved to have a new die made.

So what does "corner radius" mean? Well, put simply it's the "size" of the curve in the corner. A large corner radius has a bigger curve than a small radius. The most common rounded corners have a 1/8" radius, and (strange as it may seem) even "square" corners have a small radius as well (usually 1/64") due to the way dies are manufactured. Corner radius is not normally a major concern for most customers, but we can explore it further with you if necessary.

Shown below is a visual approximation of what your label shape will look like according to the settings you've chosen (size, shape, corners etc). It is not intended to be to scale, but simply to help you visualize roughly what your selections have indicated.

If this image doesn't match what you were intending, please hit the "Back" button and adjust any of the specifications you wish to achieve your desired result.

In order to help you organize your labels into logical groupings for future reference (and easier re-orders), please enter a group description of your choice. For example, you may want to group all labels for the same container size or type (e.g. 8oz Boston Round bottles - or - 18oz Jam Jars).

The only "rule" is that all members of a Group must share the same manufacturing characteristics you selected when preparing the online Quote - i.e. size, shape, material, finish, and unwind direction - otherwise they would require a separate production setup to achieve the required results. If in doubt, don't hesitate to call us for clarification.

If you already have your labels designed and ready for us to print, please upload the files now (one file per version please).

If you don't yet have artwork files, or you would prefer your designer to upload them later, please choose "Upload Later".

Note - for best results our preferred file formats are AI, EPS, PSD and PDF, but we can often work with other file formats too. Feel free to upload whatever you have and we'll certainly let you know if we can make it work.

Our normal method of Proofing is to email you an electronic PDF proof for your approval. We do this (free of charge) to make sure we have correctly interpreted your needs and/or pulled the right versions from your label library. We never proceed into production until we receive your explicit approval of the Proofs, so please keep an eye open for them and respond as quickly as you can.

It's also your only chance to check for any errors in your artwork before we print your labels - so please make sure you check them carefully and let us know if you need to change anything. Please note that repeating the proofing process does involve some extra cost (depending on what's needed), so it makes sense to check your artwork before placing your order.

In some cases, a physical printed proof may be appropriate - particularly if you're doing something unusual or simply want to test color combinations etc before we begin production. We can make these available for $95 (including shipping), and they normally take a couple of days (plus delivery time) to get them to you. Please also note that press proofs are limited to one set of proofs per order, but we can work with you to test alternate design treatments within that single run upon request.
