Label Lovers’ Delight
If you dig labels—and frankly, who doesn’t—the following may help to inspire new sales and recall past successes, as manufacturers look at some of their most successful, profitable and coolest label designs.
Donna Fisher, marketing communications specialist for Continental Datalabel, Elgin, Ill., observed that while many customers are familiar with the extensive line of products in the company’s Compulabel catalog, not as many know that Continental Datalabel specializes in customization. A client serving a national retailer recently submitted an order for uniquely sized labels for use on a variety of surfaces. The products required a special removable adhesive and laser toner coating technology. “Continental Datalabel was able to manufacture the products to the client’s unique specifications, and then help manage distribution by shipping the inventory to [our] distribution centers across the country,” she explained.
As for stock items, Fisher said Compulabel raffle tickets “are cool, fun and one of our best sellers.” End-users can create their own raffle tickets in portrait and landscape formats, and personalize them with logos and clip art images. “The tickets are 21⁄8x51⁄2", and fit eight per sheet. A package includes 50 sheets (for a total of 400 tickets), as well as software, instructions and a template sheet,” she explained. More than 100 preset templates are included, as well as 73 clip art images and more than 70 text effects. Refill packets of 100 sheets are also available. “Users even have a variety of options for numbering tickets,” she added.
