| Make your packaging pop with our label print service to create a truly unique branded product.

Starting from just 500 labels across multiple designs, you can choose from a wide range of options and finishes to get the right look for your product and brand.

As we understand our packaging, our team can help and advise you to ensure your labels are suitable. You can also be assured of the same quality and services that you get from our cardboard tube and metal box packaging.

Ordering is easy, simply follow the steps below to choose your label finish and then contact our team on +353 (1) 592 3888 or email info@tinwaredirect.eu for a quote.

Once we have your artwork, we will print your labels at the same time as getting your cardboard tubes and tins ready for dispatch, removing the time and hassle of finding another supplier.

Step 1

DECIDE ON THE SIZE, DESIGN & QUANTITY

Getting the size and design right is the most important step to creating your label! We've put together a few helpful tips to make sure you get it right!

  • Make your labels at least 2 mm smaller than the full size of the packaging to make them easier to apply
  • All our rectangular and square tins have rounded corners. Check the corner radius to make sure your labels fit correctly. You can download our guide here.
  • If you are applying a label to a lid or base, check to see if there are any indentations or lips you need accommodate in your shape, size or design. If you're unsure, you can always order a sample online.
  • All labels need to have a 3 mm bleed area added to the design.
  • Check that the images you use are high-res (at least 300 dpi). You can also check to see if pixilation will occur when your label goes to print by increasing the zoom to 400%
  • Set your artwork to be in CMYK. Using a different setting may change the colour of your artwork when printed
  • Export your artwork to PDF and send it to our team for print
Step 2

SELECT YOUR STOCK

PAPER

A standard label with an 81 gsm face weight which can be laminated for a variety of finishes.

Step 3

SELECT AN ADHESIVE FOR YOUR LABELS

PERMANENT

Choose this strong adhesive when you want your Sticker or Label to remain attached to a surface indefinitely.

REMOVABLE

This gentle adhesive makes your Sticker or Label easy to remove from a surface and won’t leave residue. This type of adhesive is not recommended for cardboard tubes.

REQUIREMENTS

Removable adhesive is unavailable with Rustic Uncoated Paper.

Step 4

CHOOSE A FINISH

Choose the lamination finish you want for your label.

  • Gloss
  • Matt
  • Soft touch
  • Anti scuff
  • Linen
Please note:

Lamination is not available for rustic stock.

Leather, linen and soft touch are only available for paper labels.

MORE LABEL OPTIONS

WHITE INK

Available for use on clear stocks only, either for spot, tinted or a mixture of both.

METALLIC SILVER

This is a mid-brilliance silver ink, similar to Pantone 877C. It can be used alone or with a CMYK topping to create a variety of metallic effects. We recommend printing solid rather than tinted.

We offer a wide variety of other customisations for your labels including:

  • Machine labelling method
  • Number of labels per roll
  • Gap between labels
  • Sheet, roll or single
  • Number of labels across a roll

As standard, all of our labels are quoted on rolls with a single label across the roll and are designed for easy application by hand. Please specify when requesting your quote if you would prefer different customisation from the other options listed above.

Labels are printed in CMYK.
