Do My Labels Look Good?

Feb 23, 2015 03:09 AM

It's a common question label printers hear: "Do my labels look good?", or "What do you think of my labels?".

In our experience, these questions are posed from one of two places.

  1. The brand owner is proud of the label design, excited to share it, and anticipating positive feedback.
  2. There is a great deal of uncertainty and apprehension about the label design and the brand owner is reluctant to move forward with a design they feel is not as professional or attractive as it should be.

Just Say No to JPEGs for Print and Label Design

Feb 20, 2015 02:40 AM


A low resolution photo will always print poorly. We recommend the print industry standard resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) at 100% of the printed size. This baseline quality measurement also applies to any other graphics or logos used in your label design. But you should never use JPEGs, even at 300 dpi.

Cold Weather Questions: Label Adhesive, Storage, and Shipping

Jan 20, 2015 09:30 PM

Every year, winter weather requires us to make plans and preparations for both our personal and professional lives. Frozen water pipes, school closures, and icy streets are just a few of the yearly issues winter can bring. If you live in a part of the country where freezing temperatures are seasonally common it's just a fact of life.

What you may not have considered is the effect colder temperatures can have on your labels.

Top 7 Triggers for Testing Your Label Material

Dec 04, 2014 06:00 AM

We've already shared with you "How to Choose the Right Custom Label Material" and the 6 questions to ask when deciding which material to use for your labels. Now we are going to talk about label testing.

One of the most important aspects of planning and purchasing your labels is the testing process, to determine if the material of choice actually meets all label performance expectations for your specific application. While there are many applications that may not require label testing, it is very important to understand that there are just as many that do. Even the most deliberate material selections should be tested. Time spent testing can save you both time and money. Advanced Labels is more than happy to provide raw label material for you to test on your containers, and in special circumstances we may recommend creating diecut blank labels to your exact specifications.

 

The importance of material testing cannot be emphasized strongly enough.

On Vacation and Labels

Aug 27, 2014 04:00 AM

The first day of vacation is the most wonderful day. The week leading up to vacation? Not so much. There are always more tasks to accomplish than there are hours in the day. For most of us it's a frantic hustle to get as much done as possible to ensure everything continues to run smoothly in our absence (and it's always nice to return from vacation to a well-ordered home and office).

 

"Isn't it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation?" –Zig Ziglar
