Since the beginning, Coast Label Company has established itself as a custom, specialty solutions provider. With the same, steady ownership for over 25 years, the vision for the company has remained consistent: to deliver solutions that meet customers’ unique label needs, all the while maintaining a consultative and personal approach to business relationships.

Coast Label is distinguished by the depth and breadth of quality certifications and business honors we have earned over the years. We are one of a select set of label companies to pair the following certifications:

  • ISO 9001:2008  – Internationally recognized quality certification
  • UL Printers Agreement – Authorizes us to print labels bearing the UL Marks
  • UL Recognized Component Manufacturer – Allows us to print UL969 compliant labels
  • L.I.F.E.® Certified Facility – Shows a commitment to environmentally-sensitive manufacturing practices

On the business side, we are proud to be a four-time winner of the Eugene Singer award for Best Managed Company, awarded by the label industry trade association TLMI. While in the critical areas of customer service and print quality, our Coast Label team has received numerous regional, national and international awards over the years.

We look forward to meeting with you and demonstrating our commitment to exceptional quality and service.

There are plenty of so-called “custom” shops out there, so what makes Coast Label Company different? We have taken the steps to build quality and care into everything we make. While other companies may say that they have “quality-like” systems, we can actually show you the certificates that prove it. Here are some of the benefits and extra value that make up the Coast Label Difference:

  • GUARANTEED QUALITY

    If the product you receive doesn’t meet our agreed upon specifications, we’ll replace it for you at no charge.

  • HELPFUL PRODUCT LABELING

    Each packaging unit and shipping carton is labeled with unique identifying information–great for simplifying inventory reordering!

  • MADE IN THE USA

    We control the whole process, including pre-media and platemaking, in our climate-controlled and fastidiously clean manufacturing plant.

  • WE’RE EXPERIENCED

    Located in Orange County since 1970–with roots tracing back to 1913 in downtown Los Angeles–we’ve been making self-adhesive labels for over 50 years ago.

  • REORDERS ARE EASY

    We keep detailed records of all your orders in our enterprise software system. This makes reorders fast, easy, and helps avoid mix-ups if you buy many similar labels.

  • ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE

    We are one of the few label manufacturers in the U.S. to have a L.I.F.E.® Certified Facility, demonstrating our commitment to responsible environmental practices.

  • WE VALUE YOUR TIME

    You have better things to do than spending time worrying about your product. With our ISO 9001:2008 quality system, relax knowing we will perform as specified.

  • TOUGH PACKAGING

    We’re proud of our products. That’s why we bag or wrap each item, pack them snugly in new, high-strength cartons, and then cushion the contents with air-filled pillows.

  • ONLY THE BEST MATERIALS

    We use only industrial-grade materials from the best suppliers in the world — Avery Dennison (Fasson), 3M, FLEXcon, UPM Raflatac, and others.
