Label Quality

Because our labels tend to be subjected to extreme scrutiny - you have ordered them for a special purpose; of course you want them to be perfect - and are also subjected to the rigors of shipping, packing in boxes, refrigeration, ice buckets, etc, etc, we have always focused on two key issues.

Print Quality

Commercial labels are printed on all kinds of presses and to all levels of quality. While labels for commercially canned and bottled products tend to be printed very cheaply on poor quality paper stocks, wine and cosmetic labels are at the other end of the spectrum with expensive paper stocks and all manner of possible treatments. Matching this quality in the world of short run, personalized labels is a daunting task but at the Custom Label Shop we achieve this goal, continually striving to improve our print quality and raise standards. We have succeeded to the point that our labels are now all printed to photographic or near photographic quality.

Digital Die-Cutting

Unlike most of our competitors we do not print on pre-cut sheets. All of our die-cutting is done AFTER printing, much like the process used by commercial label printers. This results in a much greater level of consistency, allowing for tight borders and truly professional results. And because our die-cutting system is a digital process, we can create complex, custom die-shapes, on the fly, at very little cost to you.


Unlike commercial labels, which are not subjected to the same scrutiny, our labels must withstand a great deal of abuse and still look great. They need to be water and scuff resistant and withstand the effects of prolonged exposure to U.V. light. Meeting these standards in a way that allows for affordable short run production has been one of our biggest challenges yet also one of our greatest triumphs. When you order from us, you do not need to worry about your labels disintegrating as soon as they get a little condensation on them, or losing patches of ink when they rub against the edges of the cardboard box they are in.

Our labels are beautiful AND durable and we now offer two different finishing options;

Laminated Self-Adhesive Paper - This option has been our standard since the middle of 2011. The print quality is very good and the laminate provides an unbeatable level of durability and excellent water resistance while maintaining a slightly textured feel.

Self-Adhesive Poly Film - This option is a matte poly film that does not require any lamination. The print quality is excellent with vibrant, permanent colors while the face stock has the feel of a high end satin paper stock unlike any film we have seen before.
