In olden days they used to use glue to stick labels to goods. It was only in 1930 that the first self-adhesive stickers hit the market. It was only in the late 80 with the introduction of inkjet printers people started to print their own tags. The standard size in those days was A4. With computers becoming vogue and the use of laser printers on the rise, printing logos become so much simpler and easier. Two of the most used methods of creating labels today are:
- Microsoft Word: You can create your own epithet using the various tools in Word or use preexisting templates and change the color and tweak the design a bit. It is easy to input attractive text too. Once your conception is finalized just print it on a labeling sheet and use a sealant to make it waterproof. You can also use software like Adobe InDesign and Print Artist Platinum Plus to create tags. In this software, you can upload photos of your own or buy from imaging services like Getty and Corbis.
- Using internet labeling service: In case you don’t have the luxury of time or creativity you can also look online for labeling services. There are several sites like Avery, Labeley and other professional websites that have a collection of layouts that can be customized to suit your business. For example, if you want a Weinetikett you can input the flavor, the age, the origin of the wine along with your logo. You can tweak the draft to suit your taste. It is a onetime affair. Before you finalize the order just ensure that all details are accurate and the color, design, shape, and size are as per your requirements. Once finalized, make the payment and wait for the labels to be mailed to you. Some shipping charges will be levied. Since they are commercial printed they will not need any waterproofing.
