Free Sample Service

Finding the right material and adhesive for your label application is not always straightforward, as adhesives behave differently dependant upon the surface to which the label is being applied and under what conditions. For example, a label being applied to Polystyrene boxes in a fresh produce packaging plant where goods are kept fresh in water, is going to be very different from a label being applied to the cover of a book for removal by the customer after purchase.

Also, and depending on how much of the label material is going to be visible and the value of the item to which it is applied, then the label face-stock is also an important aesthetic decision. As an example, the luxury textured, tactile feel of the quality paper label used on an expensive bottle of wine, combined with the necessary water-resistant qualities of the adhesive, are not going to be the same requirements as the standard paper label used on bunches of bananas.

It is for this reason that we offer a free material sample service to our customers also that other considerations can be assessed, such as printer compatibility and print quality, if ordering plain labels.

To use this service, select the materials and adhesives in which you are interested (up to 5 in total) by selecting the Material Sample option and adding to basket. Once complete, proceed to checkout where the samples will have no monetary value and proceed to place your order and material samples in sheet or roll format will be delivered to you.

Please Note:
This is a free material sample service and not a label size sample service. It is not possible to provide a sample of the material in which you are interested in the size that you require.
