Everything You Need to Know About Cut-to-Size Labels

Everything you need to know about label shapes

There are two types of labels—roll labels and cut-to-size labels. Roll labels are placed in a roll for easy storage and application. How about cut-to-size labels?

What are Cut-to-Size Labels?

Cut-to-size labels, as the name implies, are labels cut individually to their specified shape and size. The labels are printed on an easy crack-and-peel backing for convenient application.

When should you use Cut-to-Size Labels?

There are several instances where you should choose cut-to-size labels over their rolled counterparts. Here are some circumstances where cut-to-size is clearly superior.

1. If speed is not a necessity.

If you don’t have a lot of products that you need to label, you are better off printing some cut-to-size labels instead of roll labels. The crack-and-peel backing makes it easy to apply by hand so you won’t need a labelling machine to apply them.

2. If you want to be cost-effective.

Roll labels cost less per label for quantities upwards of 1,000. If you have a smaller quantity of products you need to label, you can save more if you pick cut-to-size labels.

3. If you plan on giving them away.

If you are going to use your labels as giveaways for your promotions, you need to print them in individual cut-to-size pieces.
