Printing Information for Labels

Material Overview

Our labels are on a printed face sheet with a patented non-ooze permanent adhesive. The label face has a 52 lb. facestock and a 45 lb. liner. The matte material has a thickness of 0.0072 inches +/- 10%.

Print Settings

  • We suggest printing the labels in the “Auto/Unspecified” or “Labels” material type within your printer.
  • The label material is suitable for printing in both laser and inkjet printers.

Tips Related To Labels

  • Store label sheets flat in a cool, dry place to avoid humidity. Storing label sheets in the printing environment for a short period before attempting to print, allows them to adjust to any temperature changes and stabilize after shipping, which may prevent common printing problems.
  • Prevent label sheets from being exposed to direct sunlight or flood lights.
  • Before you print onto label sheets, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the sheet in front of the label, and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
  • Before and after printing, handle label sheets by the edges of the sheet being careful not to get oil from your fingers on the printable matte surface. Oil may cause smudging or smearing.
  • Allow label to dry completely (approx. 10 minutes) before stacking, handling or peeling the printed label sheet, or affixing the clear dome.
  • If the labels jam in your printer, please make sure the sheets are flat and you are not attempting to feed too many sheets at once. Lower cost inkjet printers have simple feed systems that may require feeding one sheet at a time. Top feeding inkjet printers may require a helping hand to make sheets feed straight down. If sheets jam in bottom-feeding inkjets, you may have to adjust the paper guides or again give a hand for straight feeding.

Troubleshooting Issues Related To Labels

  • If you experience any smearing during printing in a laser printer, we suggest selecting the “Labels” material type in printer settings.
  • If you experience any smearing during printing in an inkjet printer, we suggest lowering your DPI or quality setting.
  • If you are experiencing alignment issues when printing, verify the page scaling is set to none and un-check the “auto rotate and center” option in print settings. It may also be labeled as “Resize Page to Fit Printer Margins” or similar.
