Custom Opaque Food Overlabelling Labels

Custom Opaque Labels

The quick and cost-effective way to amend your existing packaging designs.

Use labels to amend existing packaging

Opaque labels are a quick and affordable way to amend existing packaging. They contain a block out layer to stop printed designs from showing through from underneath the label.


So if you need to amend your existing packaging to suit a customs export requirement, or have switched ingredients due to supply chain disruption, opaque labels help avoid wasting your existing packaging, all while benefiting from short lead times.

UKCA CE Mark Opaque Cover Up Labels

Amend pre-printed product packaging with opaque labels

Many of our customers amend or update existing product packaging, whether it be a tub, tin, bottle or box, by over-labelling with opaque labels. Labels benefit from comparably shorter lead times and lower minimum order quantities, helping to provide flexibility to your packaging supply chain.

Logo and Address Cover Up Labels

Updated contact information cover-up labels

Discreet opaque cover-up labels can blend in to the design of your printed promotional materials, or other items which display your contact details, in situations when your contact details have become outdated. This provides a professional stop-gap ahead of your next redesign.

Exported Product Overlabelling with Opaque Labels

Opaque Over-labelling for exported products

International brands use opaque labels to meet country-specific legal requirements in situations where order volumes don't warrant bespoke pre-printed packaging. Instead, packaging is tailored to each market's requirements by over-labelling with additional information and translations.

Block Out Price Change Labels

Opaque Barcode and Price Change Labels

It's vital for price information and product barcodes to be correct, so when over labelling with the correct versions you should always use opaque labels. This ensures that the old barcode can't interfere with the scanning of the new barcode, and customers aren't confused by seeing the old price.
