Labeling

Putting Your Name on Your Customers Lips

Lip balm is a growing segment of the Health, Beauty and Skin Care categories. We can help you create brand awareness and excitement by labeling our lip balms with your private logo/brand, personal care and light industrial products. You can label one of our stock products for smaller runs or if you prefer, we can help you with custom formulas reserved for larger runs.

We use a combination of in house and third party labels. With our new State of the Art Primera CX1200 machine we can offer smaller quantities for a cost and time savings. Larger runs may be done third party which also uses cutting edge technology. All labels are vinyl with gloss laminate. Special orders for clear labels, matte finish or fold out labels for example are available upon request.

When you begin working with us for you order, we will send you a label template complete with  ingredient list and all FDA required information. All you need to do is add your art or send us your logo and we can add it for you for a nominal fee.

Below are some tips and guidelines to help your label art travel through the process smoothly.

Label Art Specifications
Please check your artwork over carefully including spelling and grammar before sending them to us. Corrections made after sending us the art may result in additional charges as we need to repeat the entire pre-press process to incorporate the new files.

Software
Files in Adobe PDF files, Adobe Illustrator files up to and including CS6 and EPS files are accepted. EPS files are preferred with all fonts converted to outlines. No clipping masks should be applied outside the template.

Note
If you are creating multiple designs, you must send each design or version individually in its own file to avoid manipulation errors.

Sending
The easiest way to send us files is via email.

Full Bleeds and Layout requirements
If your label design or background color is intended to cover the entire surface of the label, please note that we need a 1/16” bleed around each edge of the label. The bleed must go to the outer dashed line of the template. Do not exceed this line. All text and pertinent information or graphic must stay within the inner dashed line. The solid line is the edge of the label.

***Items on the template are locked and may not be retyped. The font size is a requirement. Changing this will slow the process of your label production. This is an FDA Regulation.***

The “Manufactured for” information needs to be adjusted to reflect your company information. This must include the company name, city, state and zip. City, state and zip may be replaced with a working URL that has contact information for your company. A phone number can be added. Okay to use initials or acronym. Company listed may be the Supplier or Distributor or End User.

Fees
Artwork that is not submitted in the above manner will be subject to a $45/hour with ½ hour minimum charge for fixing.

Turn Time
Turn time begins when we email you notification that everything is okay with your artwork and it has been approved.
