* Pricing per 1000 decreases as label quantity increases. Incremental rates apply, as with all printing.

** If labels (except for aluminium) are exposed to handling on a regular basis, we advise the use of lamination to protect the ink that sits on the top of the label from being rubbed off. We can either laminate the pre-printed labels for you or you can do yourself and reduce the cost of the overall job.

Minimum print is 500 labels for any kind of stock and size.

You can reorder more as needed. For the longest shelf-life of any barcode label, it is advised that they be placed on a clean and dry surface. This will optimise their performance in the environment of exposure. The shelf life listed is based on ideal storage conditions - Temperature below 25C, not humid and no direct sunlight.

Step 1 - Select the Best Size & Type for your Label

The first rule of label size is to make the barcode as large as possible so that it can be scanned. It is our experience that people want the smallest label / barcode possible. The problem is that many low end barcode scanners will be unable to read your barcode. Our most common labels sizes are below. If your size isn't there, simply fill in the Custom Label field.:
