When should you use roll labels?

There are several reasons why you would choose roll labels over its cut-to-size sibling. Here are some scenarios where the roll label format is better.

1. If you want to label in bulk.

If you have bulk quantities of products that you need to label, roll labels are a better choice than cut-to-size labels. Labelling machines, which make the process faster, usually require labels already in a roll. These machines make the labelling faster compared to doing it by hand.

2. If you want hassle-free storage.

Storing roll labels is convenient because they are already rolled around a tube. There is also no risk of unwanted tears or folds since each label rests neatly in the ribbon until it is unfolded for application. This unique characteristic of roll labels helps save space in your workspace, which is especially helpful for small work areas.

3. If you want easy-to-peel labels.

As previously mentioned, roll labels are standard for labelling machines. But even if you are applying labels by hand, you may want to order the roll format. The type of backing makes peeling these labels easier. The roll also keeps individual labels in place while applying them to your products.
