Label printing can be used to create labels for any package or occasion. Address and shipping labels are the most commonly ordered label items. You may also need labels as name tags, gift tags, or product labels, for video tapes, DVD/CD covers, tags, report folders, binders, video boxes, diskettes, gifts, and many other types of products. Printed labels, as opposed to hand-written labels, will improve the way your package or product is perceived by others.

Label Printing Options

There are many different options for label printing. You can choose from various colors, shapes, sizes, and formats of labels. The type of label you choose will depend on what you will be using the label for. For instance, video labels must be a certain size, but address labels can vary in size, according to preference.

Labels are generally printed in one of two ways. They can be printed on continuous rolls of labels, or on a sheet of labels. Rolls are a good choice if you are creating a large amount of labels that are all identical in content. Label rolls are commonly used to print return addresses. Sheets of labels are better from smaller amounts of labels, or when you are printing labels with different information on each one.

When printing, labels will start out as blank and then information will be printed onto the labels. This does not mean that you have to use blank white labels for label printing. Blank labels are available in various colors and materials. You can even choose to use foil labels which are shiny and eye-catching. The type and color of label you choose should reflect either your personality, the theme of the product or gift, or the type of product to be labeled.
