High Quality Labels: Lowest Online Price GUARANTEED

Order Online for Digitally Printed Custom Labels

Your printed labels are as important as your brand, product or organisational image in communicating your chosen values. The quality and design of a label says a lot about you and your brand, but a poor-quality label can say even more. At AA Labels, our custom printed labels are created to meet the high standards of our customers and their wide-ranging needs.

We understand that the combination of label material, adhesive, design, print and finish are all critical elements in a label’s appearance and performance. We can also print your labels in a variety of shapes and sizes, in roll or sheet format. We’ll advise you on the most suitable options for the look you want to achieve, while also considering the practical needs of your label.

Delivering the highest quality standards in label production and customer care is a collective responsibility at AA Labels, ensuring that you receive custom printed labels of the highest quality for your application.

High-Quality Printed Labels

From embellished, printed labels for bottled beverages, fragrances, skin-care or luxury goods packaging, to initial printed label orders for start-up businesses, we support a variety of producers with the design and development of labels that enhance the packaging and promote the brand.

Our customer care team are experienced and skilled in the design and production of printed labels and are happy to provide advice on everything to do with labelling. So, if you are looking for a labelling specialist that understands and values short-run label business, as well as high volume orders then you have come to the right place.

Additional information about our printed label service is available to read, in the tabs below.

Artwork

If you already have artwork prepared in a file saved format, then this can be uploaded with your order. If you do not have final artwork prepared for printing then we can help with this as well. Click on our “Design Service” button on the print selection page and upload your files, ideally in an editable (EPS or PDF) format, but we will also work with whatever you have available. Along with any images of your existing packaging, as well as brand aspirations, or design ideas and let our studio design team help create your printed labels for you.

Upload your File Artwork

Please note, uploaded files must be no larger than 2MB and to achieve the best results for your finished labels you will need a professional standard of artwork. We require scaled, print-ready studio artwork, supplied in editable PDF or EPS format, with a minimum resolution of 200dpi. No original artwork e.g. hand drawn images, can be amended and if you only have image files e.g. JPEG these also cannot be easily amended and need to be print-ready for placement, as explained in our guidelines.

Upload Icon

Upon placement of order and submission of artwork our studio designers will prepare an electronic soft-proof and an emailed link sent for you to approve, or request amendment. Following approval a press-file is created and sent to the RIP and the print queue for production.

Softproof Template

If you require a hard-copy press-proof for approval, before proceeding to produce your label order, this can be arranged and you should check the box on the print selection page when ordering.

Embossing

The embossing and debossing of labels is a very attractive tactile embellishment feature and can significantly enhance a labels attractiveness and product handling experience.

This label embellishment option enhances and changes a labels appearance significantly, whether you use it with our without print and/or in combination with other options i.e. foil and screen.

There are various embossed and debossed options to choose from and our customer care team can help you with material selection to achieve the best results for your label options. If you are unfamiliar with this label feature order a label sample to get a better understanding of the effect.

White Colour
Foiling

Even though very good metallic print can be produced using metallic label substrates, foils have additional applications with heavier and non-metallic label materials. In addition to great metallic finishes, foil also has a tactile element, micro-embossing the label surface.

Foils work well on a range of paper, non-paper and Polymer labels, both on their own and with other embellishing techniques, particularly embossing. Choose from our standard range of popular finishes and holographic option, or discuss your requirements with a member of our customer care team who will be happy to discuss your label ideas and provide assistance regarding what is possible, practical and cost-effective for your labels.

White Colour
Screen Printing

Screen-printed labels are recognisable by their thick, raised layer of ink. This heavy coat weight of ink is a perfect embellishment for signatures, text and line-drawn illustrations. The speciality inks used are very durable and UV resistant and also produce some interesting effects that are not possible with other printing methods. Also used for creating cost-effective thinner spot-colours.

The heavier layer of ink used are very useful for cost-effectively creating tactile effects, such as Braille on labels and this printing method also creates abrasion resistant image and text with excellent resistance to UV fading from sunlight. Also making silk-screen printed labels a good choice for industrial, commercial and exterior locations.

Sequential & Variable Data

Sequential Data Printing, refers to the production of barcodes and individual numbers in an ascending or descending order on labels. As traceability initiatives become increasingly used in all industries, we are seeing greater use of sequential data, for asset protection and item tracking. Sequential numbers on your labels mean that they will be printed and arranged using a numerical sequence, starting with the first number that you provide. For example, if you order sequentially-numbered labels with a starting number of 1001, you would receive labels with the numbers 1001, 1002, 1003, etc. You can also use a prefix to create a set of numbers for a department, or for assets purchased in a year. An example would be 2020-1001 (the “2020” being the year prefix).

Variable Data Printing (VDP), sometimes called Variable Information Printing (VIP), is a printing method which allows the printed content to change within a single press run. In other words, each impression can be printed differently from one piece to the next without having to stop or slow down the press.

Variable Data Printing is produced using digital-printing equipment. An electronic database is created which contains the variable data used to personalize or alter certain elements of each printed label. Special software extracts the variable data and merges it with a layout template to create the unique output files, which are then printed on a digital press. Just about any design element can be created as a variable, from text and headlines to photos and colours.

White Colour
Laminations & Varnishes

In addition to providing physical protection to printed labels from abrasion, climate, moisture, oils and harmful UV, label finishes such as laminations and varnishes can also contribute to the aesthetic appeal of the label.

For example gloss and matt varnishes provide protective finishes for products, but the use of varnish selectively on parts of the label only (Spot UV) enhances the labels appeal, creating an attractive additional label embellishment feature.

Similarly standard gloss and matt lamination can be enhanced with the use of tactile coatings such as “Soft Touch” and “Rough Touch” for labels on products that are handled in bottle and jars. Creating a pleasing additional element to the labels appeal.
