Basic Fundamentals of Labeling
When getting started on your label project, use this list to guide you through the process, and ask yourself the following questions:
What does the label adhere to? (Plastic, metal, glass, corrugated, aluminum.)
What are the surface conditions? (Smooth, or textured, flat or curved, clean or oily?)
What environment will the label be exposed to?
Does the label need to be permanent or removable?
Is there any imprinting? (If imprinting, what method is being used?)
Does the label require any testing? (i.e. PPAP.?)
