There's a whole world of materials beyond paper...
Plant-based labels are an important part of efforts to create circular and zero-waste economies, and also diversify material sourcing.
Rather than organic material going to landfill as waste from other production processes, it can instead be used as a key part of a label. It could even be used in a label for the very product it was originally making!

Plant-Based Label Materials
Our new plain biodegradable label material is made from FSC Certified Paper and an acrylic-based adhesive, both of which are biodegradable. Printing ink which may be used with these labels is not currently certified as biodegradable. The release liner is made from siliconised glassine which is not currently biodegradable.
Sometimes we may use UV ink to achieve a better print quality on intricate designs. Please make a request with our team if you wish to stick to water based inks only.
Our main delivery partner, DPD Local (part of the DPD group), is committed to carbon neutral deliveries. More information is available on their website ↗
Most of our labels are delivered by DPD and are carbon neutral, but some local and same day shipments are not. For more information about your specific delivery, please contact us.
