If your product comes in a glass jar and you know you need custom labels for it, you may be wondering which type of label is going to work best. Although there are a few options to consider, the one Epsen Hillmer Graphics recommends most often is pressure sensitive labels. Since we have a lot of experience with these and other types of labels, we’re going to cover exactly why we generally recommend glass jar pressure sensitive labels instead of a cut & stack solution.
Many of the products that come in glass jars are exposed to different conditions that can be quite harsh. Because you want the labels on your jars to handle those conditions with ease, this is the first area where pressure sensitive labels shine. Depending on your specific needs, there are multiple types of adhesive available that can be used to securely bond pressure sensitive labels to the glass surface of your jars. Once these labels are applied, you can be confident that they will stay.
Another area where pressure sensitive labels stand out in regards to glass jars is how well they work on a curved surface. Although this type of application is a challenge for a number of labels, the secure bond offered by pressure sensitive labels means you won’t have to worry about them slipping loose. That’s just as true for pressure sensitive labels used on glass jars of salsa as it is for any type of health or beauty product that comes in a jar.
As you’re evaluating label options for any product in a glass jar, one important consideration is how the labels will be applied. With pressure sensitive labels, you don’t have to worry about adding any glue during the application. That’s because the adhesive you choose is added when these labels are created. This aspect of pressure sensitive labels means applying them to your glass jar products is both easier and costs less. Being able to benefit from efficiency and savings is another very compelling reason to strongly consider glass jar pressure sensitive labels.
From their great design options to the strength and ease of their application, the list of traits that makes pressure sensitive labels appealing for products in glass jars is quite long. Just keep in mind that in order to fully benefit from all those traits, you need the right partner to create and print your labels.
