One of the most overlooked issues in product labeling is testing your labels properly.
What do we mean by this?
Not Properly Testing New Labels and New Product Surfaces
When you launch a new product (or change the surface you are applying the label to) you need to test it. This is extremely important, especially if you will be producing high quantity orders.
You will need to test things like:
- Water and Oil Resistant
- Weather Resistant
- Cleanroom labels
- Sterilized Labels
As a label provider, PaladinId has testing parameters we can outline for you so that you understand how long the label and the ink consistency should stay on, and be legible, after someone purchases and uses your product.
Of course, there are many types of labels, inks, materials, and adhesives. Plus, there is a wide variety of testing and it all takes into account the type of product and the intended industry.
For example, a multi-colored label that is hand applied to a cannabis product will be tested much differently than an outdoor label for an electrical meter.
If you are using labels in an industry that has pretty standard label requirements (uniform container products like food clamshell packaging, beverage cans, and supplement jars, etc.) all you will need to do is make sure to test labels on your production line, so your team is confident with the results.
Label Samples for Testing
Testing different labels and find the right solution for your products should not break the bank. A good label supplier will help you narrow down the best options for your specific need and offer FREE samples to try out.
