How it Works

Your guide to ordering, production and delivery

 

Step One:

Get in Touch

Our label experts are just one call away, and ready to help find your perfect label. You can either provide specifications for what your label needs to be like, such as its adhesive or material, or ask for help in picking the options which will best suit your intended application.

Here are some key factors to consider when getting in touch:

Where is your label going to be placed?

Does it need to be durable and have a strong adhesive?

Application

Do you want your label to have full colour digital print?

Does it only need one or two colours?

Colours

Does your label need to have unique codes or variable data?

Does each one need customising

Variables

How big do you need your label?

Does it need to fit onto a product or within a certain area?

Shapes and Sizes

Should the label have a premium finish to match your product?

Does it need to be written on?

Quality and Finish

Will the labels need to be compatible with your thermal transfer printer?

What ribbons does it use?

Overprinting

Step Two:

Provide Artwork

If you're looking for a printed label, it will need some form of artwork. If it's a simple design we'll probably be able to put it together for you.

 

We recommend working with a dedicated design company when you need complex artwork for product or promotional labels.

Step Three:

Review Your Quote

Our team will create a bespoke quotation for you based on your requirements and any provided artwork. If you need any adjustments or explainers, our team will be more than happy to help.

Step Four:

Check Your Proofs

Our design studio will email you an artwork proof for approval. This gives you the opportunity to check the final design ready for print, and understand any changes that needed to be made.

Want to make some changes? That's not a problem. Simply reply to the proof email, or give our studio a call to talk through the changes you want making.

Step Five:

We produce your labels

Once you approve any label artwork and we've received confirmation of your order, our production team will get to work printing your labels! Most of the time we'll use one of our four main production processes - click a process below to learn more about it.

Digital

Hot Foil

Flexographic

Thermal Transfer

Step Six:

Label Delivery

Once your labels have been completed, they'll be sent out for delivery with our carrier.

Standard orders will be delivered on a next day service. You can also collect your labels from our factory, or you may qualify for free delivery if you're in the Sheffield area.

Step Seven:

Enjoy your labels!

The majority of orders are completed within one week of artwork approval, so you won't have to wait long to start using your labels.¹

  1. The majority of orders received by Crown Labels are dispatched within 5 working days. Labels on non-stock materials, specialist products, or labels requiring originations may take longer.  For more information and to check our current lead time, please contact us.
