Labels

Baker Labels produce a wide range of bespoke labels, from the basic plain labels produced on any kind of material to full colour, dual layer labels. The list is too numerous to name every type of label but here are a few examples:

Barcode labels

All codes are available and created in-house. (Standard static codes plus full variable, consecutive and random.) 

Blockout Labels

Mainly used for covering up errors. Available in various materials from economy paper with coloured adhesive to high quality opaque white vinyl where a high brightness white is required.

Domed Labels

Base labels available in multi-colour on quality polyester or vinyl then resin domed to give a prestige emblem effect label. 

Peel and Reveal Labels

When more information is required on a limited size label, we are able to offer 3-part labels – face, inside and base, to give 3 times the print area. Can be used for special offers, ingredient labels, promotions etc.

Piggyback Labels

A dual layer label typically used for direct mail promotions, where the label can be re-used by the customer to reply to an offer. These are available with a white or clear middle layer and various face materials. 

Security/Void Tamper evident

A wide range of labels available to show various levels of tamper evidence. Ultra-destruct vinyls are the high end, where the label is extremely difficult to remove and shows a high level of tamper evidence.
Ultra-destruct PE is similar to vinyl but slightly cheaper.
Void labels do not break up, but reveal a void message when removal is attempted. These are also available with colour change messages.
Void labels are available in clear, white and silver, but can also be printed in full colour. 

Product Labels

Wide range of any kind of label for any kind of product. The digital press is particularly good for these labels as the quality is superb and would add to the saleability of any product.

Small vial labels

We’ve developed the ability to offer a range of single ply and peel & reveal labels, manufactured specifically to suit the tricky application to smaller diameter vials eg cosmetic and vape labels (with tactile).

Sequential Numbered labels

Often used in conjunction with security materials for asset marking etc. Virtually any size, colour and sequence can be produced on any substrates.

Promotional Window Stickers

High quality, long life window stickers produced by Screen. Medium life and long run versions can be produced by UV Flexo and short life but very high quality (short term promotions etc) can be produced on the Digital press.

Durable Labels

Used for long life outdoor applications i.e. drum/chemical labelling, recycling bins, car batteries etc. Produced on high quality resistant materials with BS5609 (sea water specification) adhesives.

Personalised Labels

Information supplied by the customer on a spreadsheet can be produced in conjunction with full colour print.

Special Effects

Glow in the dark, scratch off, thermochromatic, colour change, holographic effects etc., can be incorporated into most types of label.

Non-adhesive

We can also supply a wide range of non-adhesive products eg. luggage tags, plant name tags, clothing price labels.

If you do not see one that suits you here just contact one of our sales team who will be able to advise you.
