Custom food labels can turn your business name and logo into powerful branding.

But that’s only the beginning of the story.

People rely on food labels to tell them what a product contains, its nutritional value, and how it was produced. 2022 FDA guidelines for food information labels state that ” Information panel labeling, use a print or type size that is prominent, conspicuous and easy to read. Use letters that are at least 1/16 inch in height based on the lower case letter “o”. The letters must not be more than three times as high as they are wide, and the lettering must contrast sufficiently with the background so as to be easy to read.” ( This is a tall order in a small space, especially when you take into account all of the data you need to communicate. 

In addition, the labels must be durable relative to the conditions in which the food item is stored and displayed. The label material and adhesive you choose are the foundation for both the form and function. Heat, moisture, and cold can have an impact on the performance and longevity of the label.
