Product Spotlight - Custom Labels

Once you've found the perfect packaging, the next step is to select custom labels to create a finished, professional look for your product line.

Ordering Custom Labels

Custom labels provided by SKS offer great flexibility for effectively showcasing your products. Each roll of custom labels has a 3 inch diameter core for spooling and an adhesive side for quick labeling with a labeling machine or by hand. When purchasing custom labels from SKS for the first time, you may have a few questions. Here's some helpful information!

What are the artwork image requirements?
  • You will need to upload your completed artwork through our convenient label order form.
  • Images must be 300 DPI to achieve a high quality print. This includes photos that are embedded within PDF documents.
  • Files must be in jpeg or PDF formats only.
  • Must use CMYK colors only.
  • Images must fit within the dimensions of the printing area for the selected label size, as specified in the corresponding label template file.
  • For PDF documents, all included images must be embedded within the document. PDF must be saved without compression.
  • File size must be less than 1.5 MB

What choices to do I have?
  • You can choose the shape, size, material, and finish of the custom labels to enhance the overall style of your packaging.
  • Choose the unwind direction for proper compatibility with labeling equipment or workstations.
  • Purchase label rolls in 250, 500, 1,000, 5,000, and 10,000 pieces, allowing you keep labels in stock for high demand. You may also speak with a sales representative for a quote and lead times if you are interested in purchasing rolls in quantities greater than 10,000.

What help is available when choosing and creating my custom labels?
  • If your label artwork is rejected or if you have questions on how to format your art for best results, SKS is happy to assist in remedying the issues. Click the Get Label Design Help button to access a form where you can send us an email. Attach the image you are trying to upload, and include a message describing the issue or question. Our Graphic Design team will review your artwork and assist with minor edits and revisions. Note: The Graphic Design team is unable to create new images or start from scratch on custom designs.
  • When choosing the correct size for your labels, it is helpful to review the line drawing of the container you plan to use and select a label within those parameters. You may also create your own template. With the physical container in front of you, cut a piece of paper to cover the area of the container you would like to label, and then locate labels similar to the shape and size of your template.
  • SKS is the one stop website for purchasing containers, caps, and labels. The Add-ons menu on product pages allows users to view and select caps (when viewing bulk containers), shrink bands, and custom labels compatible with selected containers.

I placed my order for custom labels! What happens next?
  • If you order other products in addition to your custom labels, we will ship all other products first. The remainder of your order will not be delayed as label production occurs. Labels will ship separately once completed.
  • You will receive a digital proof of your artwork exactly as it will be printed for your approval.
  • Processing time is roughly 7-8 business days once the digital proof is confirmed.
  • Once complete, your label order will ship to you directly from our label printer.
  • Review the SKS label order terms and conditions for worry free purchasing.

Custom Label Choices

Custom Labels SKS provides custom labels in a round, oval, square, and rectangular options with either sharp square edges or soft rounded edges in a glossy or matte finish. You may select any combination of shape, material, and finish for your custom labels to create your ideal design.

White paper backed BOPP custom labels showcase designs with full-color backgrounds, or incorporate the white backing into your artwork. Clear BOPP custom labels are waterproof, with a fully transparent, polished look. The transparency of the custom labels allows the color of the containers and products stored within to complement your chosen design. Our labels are printed on BOPP, a popular plastic material used for labels. BOPP stands for Biaxially-Oriented (BO) Polypropylene (PP). Biaxially-oriented refers to the production process that stretches the film over two directions, making it stronger and more transparent. Choose from white or clear BOPP, with either a gloss or matte finish.

Matte finish labels could create a cohesive look for products packaged in eco-friendly packaging or frosted containers, and complement artwork with soft colors. Labels with a glossy finish provide a smooth feel and bring out brightly printed colors. Since clear custom labels with a glossy finish are waterproof, they are recommended for products that are frequently exposed to moisture, such as aromatherapy blends or hair and body care products.
