Use High Resolution Images

Only use high resolution images for your label design project. This will ensure that your image looks professional and crisp. JPEG is the preferred file of choice, as PNG and GIF images are not able to be printed in high resolution. Try to keep all images above 300 dpi.

Feature Your Logo

These roll labels have a specific adhesive that enables you to easily to apply and remove from surfaces without leaving any residue.

Your logo should be the center of attention in your custom label. Feature it in the center or near the top of the design and make sure that it is large enough to stand out from other included illustrations.

Measure

It is vital for you to measure your product’s container before sizing the label. This will ensure that you print the proper size for its dimensions. Measuring properly will save you time in the future and prevent the need for size-related adjustments. All of our roll labels have a 3” core and an outer diameter of up to 6”.

Line Your Artwork Up

Many people fail to use the ruler tool within illustration software. This tool is used to line up artwork, text, and other components of a custom label. It will ensure that your design looks professional.

Create Your Label in CMYK Colors

CMYK colors, or cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, is the standard color scheme for label printing. Do not make the mistake of using RGB (red, green, blue) colors. This scheme is mainly used for the Web, and will not display your design true to color once printed.

Research Label Regulations and Laws

Certain products, such as food products, require specific labeling regulations. Failing to follow these requirements can cause legal complications later on. Research labeling regulations prior to embarking on the design process to save yourself time.

Use Vector Graphics

Vector graphics are used by professional digital illustrators instead of raster graphics. This is because it does not produce a pixelated look or lose image quality when the design is enlarged.

These easy to follow tips can help you create your own custom roll label with few complications. Now that you have a more thorough understanding of label design, you can get creative and have Primo Print print your high-quality roll label. We offer custom graphic design services if you need assistance in designing an effective roll label.

For those of you looking always looking to improve marketing and promotion strategies, take a moment to consider the possibility of including bookmarks. They are handy tools for any reader, yet their use extends well beyond simply marking a page in a book. Plus they are offered in a variety of sizes and finishes. Custom bookmarks can also be used as an incredibly effective marketing tool for those looking to sell their publications or other products.

Furthermore, you can always have enough of them on you to be able to hand them out spontaneously whenever opportunities arise. (Networking event, special event etc.)  The size of bookmarks will also make them more appealing to those interested customers.

Affordable

Everyone knows how cheap they can be, but some may be surprised to know that creating custom bookmarks are also very affordable. Print marketing continues to be a critical component of any successful business, yet one that can end up being cost-effective. The ideal balance is to have effective marketing that generates interest in your product or service without draining too much money. The great thing about personalized bookmarks is how affordable they are. This allows you to spend less time worrying about marketing costs and start putting more money towards creating and improving your product or service.

Familiar Use

There’s nothing worse than relying on marketing your product on an object that people don’t use. For any sort of marketing to be effective, there must be consistent and reliable exposure to an interested audience. This is why such platforms as billboards, television ads, space on public transportation, etc. are the most expensive because they guarantee the heaviest exposure.

Bookmarks provide a great resource to accomplish this requirement. People use bookmarks on a daily basis. This ensures that those who have received it will continuously be reminded of the product or event you’re endorsing. Additionally, when receiving your bookmark, potential customers will be more inclined to accept as the gesture seems more like a gift than a marketing tool.

Customizable and Unique

In order for a product to standout amongst it’s competition, there must be a unique element to help separate it from the crowd. Not only are they a relatively untapped marketing strategy, they are also easily customizable to fit the needs of any desired design and look. This gives promoters the freedom to display their product to their audience how they have envisioned. The sheer uniqueness of a bookmark promotion will also generate additional interest to further separate this marketing technique and help your product standout amongst the noise.
