Learn how to design Custom Hand Sanitiser Labels with our top 5 design tips.
With huge increases in demand for antibacterial hand sanitiser and hand gel, there are more companies than ever looking to enter the market to help meet consumer demand. Many of these new producers will be asking how to design custom hand sanitiser labels, and what information should be included. So we’ve put together out top 5 hand sanitiser label design tips, to help anyone get started in this market space.
1. Don't make your label design too complicated
The most critical part of a good custom label design is that the information you are providing a customer is clear and concise. This is particularly important for health, safety and hygiene products such as hand sanitisers. Customers want to be able to trust your product, which means that information should not be confusing, and you shouldn’t try to make the product seem like something it is not.
For example, does your hand sanitiser label show the alcohol content of the sanitiser? This is information that should be included prominently, as it is a vital part of the product and helps to indicate its quality and suitability.
2. Include this essential information
Along with the alcohol content, there are a range of other pieces of information you should displaying, including the following information as recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO):
The name of your company or organisation
Safety instructions such as: for external use only, avoid contact with eyes, keep out of the reach of children, flammability warnings
Date of production and a batch number
How to use the hand sanitiser properly
Details of the WHO-recommended handrub formulation, and composition of the sanitiser (e.g. ingredients such as ethanol or isopropanol)
You should always do further research as to the laws regarding product labelling in your country or region, as there may be additional information that you need to include.
3. Make your product brand clear
There’s an increasing range of hand sanitiser products on the market, so it’s important that your hand sanitiser label design is recognisable. It’s not necessary to go over-the-top with branding or design elements, but by making your logo clear it ensures that customers can find your product again.
You can also use branding to inform customers of other similar products, for example a different scent. With our variable digital printing capabilities, we can print labels of different varieties and sorts with no print plate charges, so it’s simple to label your full range of hand sanitisers.
4. Ensure your label is made from suitable materials
Another important design decision is what materials you want to use for your hand sanitiser labels. You shouldn’t use paper-based labels for hand sanitiser, as they are highly likely to be damaged from any spillages or simply through wear and tear. They also have the disadvantage that they would prevent the hand sanitiser bottle from being cleaned properly. Instead, go for a synthetic label such as polypropylene.
There are different types of polypropylene laminate which you can use to give your label and bottle a different feel. Standard gloss laminate is shiny, whereas matt laminate gives a more refined and sophisticated look that’s perfect for a more premium brand or a cosmetics company. You could even go for a
