Different Types Of Labels And Their Uses

Labels come in all shapes, sizes, and colors to help distinguish products from one another.

Labels also play a very important role for manufacturers as they provide the necessary information such as ingredients, instructions for use, and other relevant information that consumers need.

Furthermore, labels can be made out of paper or plastic which is then sealed with wax or glue to make them waterproof.

There are many different finishes, protective coats, etc available on the market that can make labels more durable and visually appealing.

Reasons to choose labels for your products

There are a variety of reasons to choose labels for your products, and each reason has its unique relevance. The most common uses include: 

  • Identifying the product so that consumers know what they’re purchasing.
  • Protection against counterfeiting or theft of goods, which become increasingly profitable in today’s black market economy.
  • Product information, including description, country of origin, recommended uses, etc.
  • Labels should be attractive but also informative
  • Adding value to the product by making it more attractive and durable.
  • Labels can add a lot to the value of goods these days because consumers are looking for premium products that have been manufactured with high-quality materials.

In many cases other than identification, labels serve other important purposes such as protection and added value.

Although labels must add both identification and value to products, they will only work if they’re made out of premium materials and look attractive to the consumer.

Different types of labels

Let’s go through some of the trending label types:


    Metallic inks are a type of ink that is made up of tiny particles of metal. This type of ink gives a lustrous look and is often used for high-end products such as jewelry, cosmetics, and other luxury items. Metallic inks are also popular for packaging because they give the product a luxurious feel. Pacer Labels provides you with a range of gold inks that can be customized to your needs. 


    Foiling is a printing process that involves the use of metallic foil to create a shine or shimmer on the label. This type of printing is often used for high-end products because it gives the product a luxurious look.


    Embossing is a printing process that involves the use of a raised surface to create a textured effect on the label.


    Textured coatings can bring a feel and difference to labels. They can add an extra layer of protection and make the label more durable. In some cases, the textured coating can also make the label more visually appealing by providing a different look or feel. 

There are a variety of different textures that can be used, and each one has its benefits. Some textures are better at hiding scratches and others are more resistant to water and other liquids.

Choosing the right texture is important, and it’s something that should be considered when designing labels.


    Laminations are durable and high-impact finish. They are made by heat pressing a thin film of adhesive to a substrate, such as paper or plastic. The film is usually transparent and can be printed on. The most common type of lamination is thermal, which is created by heat and pressure.

    Labels come in a variety of different finishes, each with its unique benefits. One such finish is a soft-touch coating, which provides a touch of luxury to any product. This protective coating is applied over the label’s print, giving it a softer feel and a more luxurious appearance.

This finish is perfect for products that need to stand out from the competition. It can also be used to add an extra level of protection to the label, making it more resistant to scratches and scuffs. In addition, the soft-touch coating can also help improve the overall look and feel of the product.


    When you need to create a high-quality, colorful label, silkscreen is the perfect printing process. It provides the ultimate in color richness and depth, making your label look truly stunning.

In addition, silk screen printing is extremely durable, meaning your label will withstand even the harshest conditions.
