Recyclable Labels

Recyclable wineglass labels

At Labelnet we believe that caring for the environment is incredibly important. We’re always searching for new, innovative packaging products that can help our customers become more environmentally friendly, and we’re proud to announce the launch of our recyclable wineglass labels!

Main benefits of our recyclable labels:

Helping the environment

Helping your customers to recycle 100% of their packaging

Easily adaptable with your current printer

Offer something more than your competitors

High strength flexible plastic film

Specifically designed to clip to netted bags without cracking

Good quality print

Despite the name, recyclable wineglass labels offer sustainable packaging for a wide variety of grocery products, and can often be found on netted fruit and veg bags in the supermarket (for example, oranges, lemons, limes and onions). More recently, they have become a popular label choice for cheese netted bags.

Traditionally, wineglass labels are developed from a mix of laminate and thermal paper, making them non-recyclable. However, we have specifically designed and developed a high strength, flexible, plastic film which is 100% recyclable and doesn’t break or scuff during transportation. Therefore not only are you able offer your customers an environmentally friendly alternative to what’s currently on the market, but you can also rest assured that your labels will be in pristine condition when they arrive to you and go out to supermarkets.

Furthermore, our recyclable wineglass labels have been developed to be clipped to netted bags without creasing down the middle, and the strong, durable material used to develop the labels means they can easily be used as a handle to easily lift the netted bags. So not only are our labels practical in addition to being ethical, they can help you do your part for the environment.

Does this affect the printing process?

Labelnet aims to make the transition from non-recyclable to recyclable wineglass labels as smooth as possible.

The printing process begins with our Flexo press, after which our customers will typically use their own printers for the direct thermal print which is when barcodes/ expiry dates are printed onto the labels. For our new recyclable wineglass labels, printing can still be carried out on most existing printers with the addition of a thermal transfer printed technique, rather than direct thermal print.

There is very little disruption to the label printing process, making it even easier to switch to recyclable wineglass labels!

Will this affect print quality?

Printed on a one of a kind substrate, there’s no doubt that your recyclable wineglass labels from Labelnet will look vibrant, crisp and professional. Our most popular size is 39mm x 161.925mm, however, we also offer bespoke sizing to suit customers’ requirements. We can even print circular versions, such as the example below.

Should you need a little help making a decision before, or you’d like to see and feel the difference between a standard label and recyclable wineglass label before ordering, then please do get in touch. We’re more than happy to send out a free sample pack, or we can offer to print samples of your very own wineglass labels; priced at just £40 (this includes 5 labels).

The Labelnet team are also on hand for design support. With 2 highly experienced design teams, we can create bespoke artwork for your labels from scratch.

Wineglass Labels

Wineglass labels are a great labeling solution for products that are sold in netted bags – this tends to be small fresh produce like satsumas, onions, and garlic but are often used for bagging wrapped individual portions of cheese or confectionery.

Wineglass Labels are a cost effective way to brand a product, without the need for expensive packaging.  They enable you to include key information about your product in a simple but eye catching way and are easily affixed to the net using a very small metal clip.

Both sides can be printed on and in a wide variety of different materials that are highly durable and resistant to tearing and moisture.  These can be any shape or size and designed exactly to suit your own needs.  The front is often used to communicate the main product information and the reverse can be designed to enable you to easily overprint variable information about the product.  Multi-layer/peelable designs are an excellent  solution if you would like to get a lot of information onto a very small tag.

At Labelnet we understand the importance of correct food labelling. Our technical sales division is highly trained to ensure that our customer’s labels are compliant with current UK food labelling legislation so you can rest assured you’re working with a supplier that is familiar with all the latest rules and regulations within your sector.
