Lip Balm Labels

Providing professional label printing equipment and accessories to the Lip Balm industry

Lip Balm’s are becoming ever popular and with different tins, pots and traditional sticks there are many ways to label them. With lots of smaller natural producers including CBD Lip Balms coming into the market, the need for producing professional but short run lip balm labels is growing even further. So what can we offer lip balm producers?

Important considerations

When producing lip balm labels we’ve seen that having a range of material types and finishes is important but the durability of the label is key. Labels on Lip Balm’s are handled more than most other labelled products. The label tends to surround the whole product and the product itself is constantly handled. So how can you ensure your label looks great but remains tough enough to last?

  • Choose your print type – LED or Watershield prints are more durable than standard inkjet prints.
  • Do you add lamination or a coating?

What regulatory information do you need to include and what font size does this need to be in? Certain print methods might not be suitable for printing the smallest size text.

How will your labels be applied? If they are to be applied automatically then the orientation, label gap size and thickness will need to the checked.

HD Labels offer a wide range of materials for lip balm labels and can supply free samples for testing prior to ordering. We’d always recommend that you apply sample labels to the containers that you intend to use prior to ordering any labels.

Why print your own?

Digital printing can offer a cost effective solution for short run printed labels. Reasons for customers preferring this to having labels printed for them include:

  • Complete control over inventory
  • No long lead times
  • No minimum run sizes
  • The ability to respond quickly to regulation changes
  • Easy to sample products, create special editions or even produce custom label versions.

Popular equipment

For low to medium run sizes then the Afinia L502 is a durable printer ideal for lip balm labels. This is often combined with a semi-automatic label applicator such as the Bottle Matic 2. The foil printer from DTM Print (show right) adds another finish type.

For larger run sizes the Afinia L-801L901 or OKI Pro Series combined with the DLF-220L allows you to produce any size or shaped label whilst adding an over laminate.
