Pet Food & Animal Supplement Labels

Providing professional label printing equipment and accessories to the Pet Food & Animal Supplement industry

Pet foods & animal supplement labels have come on massively in the past 10 years with regulations, nutritional info and of course “the look of the label” being as important as ever. We have a range of label printers which we already have running in animal food producers across the UK. From smaller natural pet food producers to global companies. Our printers are designed to produce pet food labels using safe inks, in high quality & full colour, while ensuring we have the lowest cost per print for a colour label printer.

Pet Food Labels

Important considerations

When it comes to Pet Food labels a high quality finish while being informative is essential but there are many other factors to consider before then.

  • What is the shelf life of your product?
  • What environment is it likely to be kept in?
  • Do you need colour (traffic light system)?

This will help identify how durable your label needs to be and whether you will need to have an over laminate. It will also narrow down the potential label printers you could use which will help when getting samples etc produced.

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 pet food / feed labelling and can supply free samples for testing prior to ordering. We’d always recommend that you apply samples 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.
