Here at Etiquette Systems, we can print any type of label you require, using a variety of imaging and mechanical printing processes. We keep a wide range of substrate materials in stock, from basic paper to plastics and metalized synthetics; when we combine them with our chemically balanced inks, overlays, and adhesives, we can quickly design labels to conform to any situation or specifications. We also pride ourselves on our accuracy, speedy turnaround, and high level of personal service.
That said, we do have our specialties—primary products that we do better than anyone in the business and can turn around in a minimum of time. The types of labels we're famous for include the following:
Beauty and Personal Care Products. We're old hands at creating labels for shampoo, conditioner, and makeup, as well as other skin care, nail care, shaving, and personal hygiene products. Our familiarity with the wide array of containers used shows in the creative combinations of substrates, adhesives, inks, and overlays we can provide, as well as our ability to create conformable labels that will easily stretch and regain their original dimensions to fit the needs of tubes and other squeezable containers. Paper labels usually aren't sufficient to handle either the materials these goods are made of or the conditions they're used in, so we're more likely to use BOPP and other plastic substrates, along with adhesives and inks that can handle long-term exposure to moisture and oils.
Custom Food Labels. The wide variety and specifications common to food labels offer special challenges we're always eager to rise to. Our peel-and-stick products set the standard for attractive, multi-colored labeling that helps sell the goods even as it serves basic identification and informational purposes. We'll work closely with you, combining our expertise with your needs to produce affordable combinations of substrate, adhesive, and inks that meet all standards imposed, not to mention the environmental conditions food products are commonly subjected to. We can provide Beverage Labels, Dairy Labels, Jar Labels, Produce Labels, Wine Bottle Labels, Bakery Labels, Beer Bottle Labels, and much more.
Custom Medical Labels. Doctor's offices and medical labs use a surprisingly wide range of labels. In many cases, paper labels with standard adhesives and inks are sufficient, and typically come in the form of printed labels where additional information is added by hand or printer. These are ideal for urine cups, blood vials, and file labels, and rarely have to face anything more damaging than bodily fluids. Blood bag labels for donation and transfusion must be tougher, of course, since they face refrigeration and the moisture that often comes with it. Cryogenic labels, used for storage of tissue samples and genetic materials, have their own challenges, but we can handle those with our special artificial label stocks, super-tough adhesives that won't deaden in the cold, and special inks that won't flake off (see Freezer Labels).
Durable Labels. There's a place for inexpensive paper labels with short-term adhesives, and it's not in heavy industry, outdoors, in laboratories, or in warehouses. There, durable labels rule, because our customers need to be able to identify and track their goods over the long term. Durable labels are meant to be applied to durable commodities, so they're designed to last 2-3 years or more. Asset management, warehousing, lab research, even janitorial services all require tough labeling for informational, warning, logistics, and asset handling purposes. Typically, these labels must be capable of standing up to corrosive chemicals, abrasion, moisture, temperature extremes, or all of the above. Whatever your needs, we can quickly and enthusiastically provide a solution, matching our label stocks, inks, and adhesives to produce the perfect fit for your environmental conditions.
Freezer Labels. These labels are designed for use in consistent sub-freezing temperatures, under a variety of food service and research conditions. They must be made of materials that can handle frigidity for long periods, especially adhesives that don't freeze and deaden, losing their grip on the packaging. Label stocks must remain flexible in the cold, and all materials used must also be able to adapt to changes in humidity and moisture. Our freezer labels are used in cold storage and distribution, pre-frozen food packaging, blast freezing, cryogenics labs (including nitrogen exposure), corrective labels on frozen surfaces, and even in cold outdoor environments.
General Manufacturing Labels. Manufacturing represents the most diverse category we make labels for, reaching into every corner of the industrialized world. It requires a huge variety of labels designed either to last until point-of-use, like price stickers and Custom Food Labels, or to last the lifetime of the product in the form of signage, bar-codes, or components of the product itself. We can create just about any form of adhesive product label you'll need for any type of manufactured goods.
Logistics Labels. We can speedily provide Bar-code Labels, Logistics and Shipping Labels, Healthcare and Lab Labels, Horticultural Labels, and more. All these make it easier to identify materials for asset management and inventory purposes, so you can keep track of all your goods with ease. Bar-codes can also facilitate laser-based check-out in retail stores, while simultaneously keeping track of inventory so you know when you're running short of particular goods and can reorder—either by hand, or automatically when stocks fall below a certain level.
Print Your Own Labels. While Etiquette System leads the industry in custom printed labels, we haven't forgotten that some folks prefer the do-it-yourself method. In addition to laser and inkjet sheet labels, we can also provide blank or partially printed rolls of both ink-based and thermal adhesive labels for use with your own printing equipment. We even carry old-school pin-feed labels for use with dot-matrix printers, not to mention direct thermal and thermal transfer labels and ribbons. Oh, and did we mention that we can sell you the labeling machinery itself? Whether Dymo, Zebra, or Brady, we've got you covered.
Promotional Labels. Planning a big sale or mail campaign? We can assist with bold promotional labels and decals that will grab people's attention and help you convert them into buyers. Whether you need just a few double-sided window decals to advertise your half-price shoe sale or 10,000 seals for your latest direct mail package, these labels represent a wonderfully inexpensive way to sell more products. We'll not only determine the best combination of our many different substrates, adhesives, overlays, inks, and printing methods to produce your ideal solution, our design team can also help you create edgy, eye-catching images your prospects won't soon forget.
