What Are Adhesive Labels?
Adhesive labels are – as the name suggests – self-adhesive labels that are supplied in roll form. This means that they can be applied wither by machine or manually. They enable simple and smooth further processing. You have the option of choosing the winding direction of your labels, as well as various roll core diameters: Choose between 76 mm, 40 mm and 25 mm.
Adhesive labels are often also called stickers, adhesive roll labels, roll labels, adhesive labels, self-adhesive labels or bottle labels. Whether you call them adhesive labels or sticky labels – we are your contact for printing and finishing!
Where and how Are Self-Adhesive Roll Labels Used?
Adhesive labels are basically universally applicable. They are used in particular for labelling bottles, jars, cans, packaging and other containers in a wide range of industries such as the food, chemical, beverage and cosmetics industries. These printed labels are as versatile as the product they are applied to: Adhesive labels simply cut a good figure everywhere.
The further processing of adhesive labels on rolls depends on the circumstances of the respective product. The printed adhesive labels on rolls – roll labels for short – enable both machine processing and manual application. As a label manufacturer, we ensure that your roll labels are wound correctly. And if things have to move fast, we produce your adhesive roll labels by express production within 48 hours.

Which Colours Can You Use to Print Your Self-Adhesive Roll Labels
In printing, we work with the process colours cyan, magenta, yellow and black, CMYK for short. You also have the option of choosing opaque white. In addition, you can specify a Pantone® special colour to achieve special effects. When specifying the Pantone® colour, these are simulated as best as possible. Depending on the colour tone, it is possible to additionally use orange, violet and green to match the original tone as closely as possible. Please note that there is usually no 1:1 match and not all colours can be simulated in digital printing (e.g. metallic tones or neon colours). If you would like to do without colour altogether, we can of course produce blank labels for you.
Finishing Touches – How to Enhance Your Labels
We finish your adhesive labels entirely according to your wishes. Your self-adhesive labels are also available with hot foil stamping in gold, silver and many other colours, with foil lamination or with protective varnish. Adhesive roll labels with hot foil stamping are particularly high-quality due to their gloss and colour intensity. With foil lamination, the adhesive labels are provided with a special protective laminate, which can be applied with a glossy or matt finish. Compared to protective varnish, the lamination is thicker and more resistant. The normal protective varnish covers the label like a protective layer and thus prevents the colours from fading. On our website you will find more information about finishing options for your adhesive labels. Of course, you can also contact our customer service personally. We will be happy to help you! On request, we can also print your labels with relief varnish, blind embossing or partial varnish.
