Wherever you are, have a look around – next time you’re in a shop, at a school, in a hospital, look around.
There are printed labels everywhere!
Whether on packaging, medicines, books or brochures, Companies have custom stickers for all sorts of reasons. But why labels? Why not print directly onto the product? The answer is purely down to cost – printed labels cost less.
