LABEL APPLICATION TECHNIQUES


Label application
techniques are a quick and easy to follow instructions guide to make sure you know how to adequately apply a label. Label application can be much trickier than most people think and that is why we will detail henceforth a few easy-to-follow tips as guidelines for you.

First of all, common sense really recommends that before any label application is done, one must wash his hands thoroughly. Dust and other types of particles may get on the may during the label application and decrease the stickiness of the label or ruin the label application attempt by spoiling the label altogether.

For an adequate label application we need to identify the surface where the label application will take place. Once identified, a correct label application procedure will be to clean it carefully will a dry cloth or preferably some alcohol. That way the label application will be much easier and the label will remain adhered considerably longer.

A correct label application also requires making sure no air bubbles are trapped between the surface where the label application is taking place and the label itself. Adequate label application techniques recommend starting with the label corner, slowly adhering the label over the surface. Label application may be somewhat tricky on round or irregular surfaces. In the case of round surfaces label application should be done following the object shape slowly and uniformly. On the other hand, label application should be altogether avoided on irregular surfaces: better look for a smooth area on the object for the label application.

Last but not least, be sure to let the applied label adhere adequately to the object before handling it. Label application techniques recommend at least a 2 minutes waiting period. After such small waiting time is over your label will probably stay adhered for a quite a while before requiring to be replaced.
