Rolls of Polyester Labels

High-Quality Labels

At Coast Label, we make high-quality, custom roll labels to fit your specific needs. Roll labels are a great option for companies that need good-looking custom labels or stickers in a cost-effective form factor. We can make them for you in a variety of widths, sizes, and even core dimensions to fit your ideal needs.

Whether you’re a small business or large corporation, our custom labels can be customized and configured to work for you. For example, by perforating roll labels into sets, they can be quickly torn and distributed at the point of use–a potential labor saver. In another scenario, we can print additional content to the side of your main custom labels — displaying anything from instructions to part numbers, to reference QR codes. Suddenly your roll labels are working for you, helping keep track of inventory or helping employees apply safety information accurately.

Customization To Fit Your Needs

We print labels to fit your specific needs. How? When you get a consultation from us, we work with you understand the factors that will impact your label such as temperature, environment, application surface and more. These are important questions that all label manufacturers should be asking, but often don’t. The goal during this time is to get all those critical specifics from you so we can come up with roll labels tailor-made for your usage. You let us know the sizes, shapes, and needs for your labels and we’ll make it happen.

Clean Room Roll Labels

Are your labels being applied in a cleanroom environment? Depending on your needs, we can manufacturer rolls labels with plastic cores and even film liners to cut down on paper dust. As a final touch, our finishing department can double bag the roll labels to ensure clean transfer.

Different Types of Roll Labels

We have established that we can print custom roll labels to fit your needs. Now here are just a couple of the different kinds of roll labels we can make for you.

Clear Roll Labels

Clear labels are great when you want that “no label” look. And with our opaque inks, the print will stand clearly even as the material blends into the background.

Industrial Strength Roll Labels

Having durable roll labels can be critical for situations involving moisture, inclement weather, excessive UV light, and more. We source industrial-grade component–such as 3M high-quality label adhesives–to give you the best options for your specific usage.

Speciality Cores Sizes

3 inch and 1-inch diameter cores are the norm, but that doesn’t mean that’s where your options stop. For example, need a 3/4 inch core to fit your proprietary equipment? We can help. If you have a unique core size need, let’s talk. Because special doesn’t have to mean impossible.

Best Uses for Custom Roll Labels

Custom roll labels are extremely versatile, which makes them an excellent choice for businesses in a variety of industries. When ordered in bulk, roll labels are very cost-effective. Because they can be applied with label dispensers or automated systems, roll labels can be applied quickly and precisely, reducing time and effort for manual application. Plus, custom roll labels are easy to store and handle due to their compact design. They can be stored on shelves or even just inside the label applicator. 

Here are some of the best uses for roll labels: 

  • Packaging: Custom roll labels are commonly used for product labeling and branding. They can be customized to make your products recognizable. With a label applicator, it’s easy to apply them precisely for a professional appearance. 
  • Shipping labels: Custom roll labels are commonly used for printing address and shipping labels. Because roll labels print one at a time in a continuous roll, they work well for variable data. 
  • Event stickers: Another common use of roll labels is as event stickers for conferences, trade shows, or concerts. You can include event details, names of attendees, branding, and logos, or even use them as entry tickets. 
  • Organizational labels: Roll labels can be used to label files, folders, storage bins, and other items to easily organize your office or workplace. 
  • Food and beverage: Another common use of custom roll labels is for labeling food and barrage products. Whether you’re selling jams, sauces, or other consumables, these labels can provide the necessary nutritional information and branding. 
  • Barcode labels: Custom roll labels work extremely well when printing variable data, such as barcodes and QR codes.

When Not to Use Custom Roll Labels

Custom roll labels work well in a number of circumstances, but there are a couple where sheet labels may be the better choice, including:

  • Short-run printing: If you only need a small quantity of labels, such as for promotions, test runs, or address labels, sheet labels will be more cost-effective for you. Roll labels are more economical when ordered in bulk. 
  • Full-color printing: Roll labels are often printed using either direct thermal or thermal transfer printing. Neither of these printing methods allow for full-color printing. However, specialty inkjet roll printers can print full-color roll labels. 
  • Printing on demand: If you’re printing your own labels on demand, sheet labels will work better for you because you can print as few or as many at a time as you need. 

Why Custom Roll Labels Have Minimum Order Quantities

If you’re looking to order custom roll labels, you’ve probably noticed that most companies require a minimum quantity to purchase. But why is that? When purchased in bulk, roll labels are extremely cost-effective. However, there are some initial costs we incur when setting up for a print run. These costs are fixed, meaning they remain pretty constant regardless of the number of labels printed. Once the print run is already set up, it becomes more efficient for us to produce a higher volume of labels. This allows us to offer you better pricing per label. 

Additionally, there is usually some initial waste when we calibrate and adjust the machine. Larger print runs help distribute this waste over a greater number of labels, which reduces the impact of waste on the overall cost per label. Finally, the high-speed printing processes used to produce custom roll labels are optimized for larger runs and don’t work as efficiently for small runs. 

What Sizes of Roll Labels Can You Order?

One of the things we do best at Coast Label is offering you custom options for your labels. Roll labels often come in standard sizes like 2” X 2”, 3” X 3”, or 4” x 6”. However, we offer sizes outside of the standard! Whether you need something extra small or extra big, we can do it. In addition to custom sizes, our state-of-the-art equipment can also create custom shapes for your roll labels. We offer both kiss-cutting and die-cutting for our custom roll labels.  

How Are They Packaged and Shipped?

We supply custom roll labels in a continuous roll format. The labels are wound around a core as they are printed. Common core sizes are 1 inch or 3 inches, but we can create custom sizes to fit your equipment. 

Once your labels are printed and wound, we package them in shrink wrap to protect the labels during shipping. Wrapped rolls are placed in boxes that we ship directly to you. We typically ship them in tight boxes so that labels don’t move much during transport. This ensures that they look just as good when they arrive as they did when they were hot off the press. 

Are They Easy to Peel and Apply?

Custom roll labels are made to be easy to peel off and apply. This is especially true if you use a label applicator or an automated labeling machine! With your application in mind, we’ll help you pair the right adhesive with the right backing to make peeling and applying your roll labels easy. Additional customizations that can help make the application easier include kiss-cut or die-cut labels and perforations between labels.

What Custom Label Materials to Consider

When choosing the materials for your custom roll labels, it’s important to consider the temperature your labels will be exposed to and other environmental factors. For example, if your labels will be exposed to extreme conditions, you’ll need to pick a durable material. Other factors to consider when choosing the label material include performance, appearance, and functionality. 

Here are some custom label materials to consider for your roll labels: 

  • Paper: Paper labels work for a wide range of applications, including product labels, packaging, and promotions. They’re inexpensive and can be recycled. However, paper labels aren’t recommended for extreme conditions. 
  • Polypropylene (PP): Polypropylene is a durable material that is both water-resistant and chemical resistant, which makes it an excellent choice for harsh conditions.  
  • Polyethylene (PE): Like polypropylene, polyethylene labels resist moisture and chemicals. Additionally, polyethylene is resistant to tearing, which makes it a great choice for outdoor applications. 
  • Vinyl: Vinyl is both flexible and durable as well as water-resistant. We offer both clear and white vinyl custom roll labels, depending on the aesthetic you’re looking for. 
  • Metallic film: Metallic film labels create a premium, eye-catching appearance and work well for luxury products and promotional materials. 
  • Polyester (PET): Polyester is a very durable material, suitable for extreme applications. PET resists tearing, moisture, and chemicals. Plus, it’s typically heat resistant up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and can also handle low temperatures, such as in a freezer. 
  • Heat-resistant: For more extreme heat resistance, we can engineer custom roll labels in Thermogard, which can handle heats of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, or Tribogard, which is used for labels that will be placed on electronic parts.
  • Low temperature: For low-temperature labels, polyester, vinyl, and synthetic paper are often a good choice. In addition to the materials, you also have to consider the adhesive for low-temperature applications. Typical label adhesives often become brittle in low temperatures. If your labels will be placed in a freezer or outside during winter weather, you’ll want to choose a stronger adhesive that will adhere even in the cold.

Some of the other types of labels we can make for you are polyester, blank, UL labels, and more.
