We will manufacture your labels in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly way!
Operating in an ecologically-friendly manner has increased greatly in relevance in the B2B sector, particularly in recent years. Handling nature’s resources sustainably is also a matter of course for us as professional label manufacturers.
Would you like sustainable labels or print labels in a sustainable manner? – is protecting the environment very important to you? It is to us too! That’s why everything is dictated by respect for the environment at label.co.uk. That’s because we are all responsible for the planet we live on!
Producing roll labels in an environmentally-friendly way
In our label printing plant, production has been optimised from an environmental perspective. When printing your adhesive labels, we take account of all aspects relating to the environment.
Printing with our HP Indigo printer means reduced CO2 and digital printing techniques mean than unlike offset printing, no long lead times are required for the printing machines, meaning a minimum of print waste and environmentally damaging refuse. Another advantage of digital printing is that it takes place without chemically treated printing plates. Setting up the machinery for digital printing procedures is also quick, meaning that the machine only runs when it’s actually producing. Not only does this save time, it also saves electricity and materials. Using environmentally-friendly electricity derived from regenerative power from our supplier is a natural choice for us.
Of course, we will also print your labels using environmentally-friendly colours and if you wish we will also use FSC-certified, recyclable or recycled paper and films with the appropriate adhesives and carrier materials for your roll labels and wet glue labels.
Is the recycling economy very important to you? Simply contact us. We will be happy to advise!

Our contribution to sustainability in label printing
We attach great importance to being able to offer our customers sustainable materials and also environmentally friendly label production. This means:
#1 Almost all our papers are FSC certified (FSC Mix Credit). Our online calculator shows you each material and whether it is FSC-certified or not.
#2 We offer the possibility to choose a lye soluble adhesive for your labels. This makes it easy to remove the label from the product and enables separate recycling.
#3 Digital printing offers us the possibility to produce your labels CO2 reduced and without using chemically treated printing plates. As the printing machine does not require long lead times, it only runs when it actually produces. In addition, no extra cutting plate has to be made.
#4 We rely on paperless communication and obtain our electricity from environmentally friendly and renewable sources.
Customers always make a conscious decision for or against a product.
The trend shows: The purchase decision also depends more and more on ecological aspects. And in order to offer our customers products that use resources and the environment responsibly, we offer FSC-certified materials (FSC Mix Credit), a material from responsible sources.
What does FSC Mix Credit mean?
In the production of this material, both materials from FSC-certified forests and recycled materials were used. At label.co.uk we use the FSC Mix 70%, which means that at least 70% of the material comes from FSC-certified forests.

This paper consists of 30% sun-dried grass fibre (hay) and 70% FSC-certified paper.
Grass paper is made from the rapidly renewable raw material grass, thus reducing the consumption of wood and is therefore particularly sustainable. In addition, CO2 emissions and water consumption are reduced by up to 50%. Nevertheless, the material can be processed like other papers. Find out more about grass paper now.
The removability of labels depends on several factors. These include:
- Proportion of printing ink, protective lacquer, hot foil
- Temperature/alkaline content of the lye
- Water absorption capacity of the paper
- Storage of the product
general/individual material properties
Basically, it must be ensured that adhesive labels are stored protected from UV radiation and weather influences and that moisture is avoided at all costs. If stored properly, we guarantee optimum adhesion of our labels for 12 months after production.
In addition to classic formats such as round, square or oval, all free special formats are available for label printing with label.co.uk
Whether in the shape of your logo, star-shaped or in abstract form. Let your creativity run wild.
