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 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.
Meeting Current Food Labelling Legislation
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.
Wineglass labels get their name from their untraditional shape. Rather than being for wineglasses (an understandable misconception!), wineglass labels are a labelling solution for food products that are sold in netted bags. Commonly this type of labelling is used for fresh produce such as onions, satsumas and garlic but is also used for bagging wrapped individual portions of cheese or confectionery.
Wineglass labels are an inexpensive method of labelling packaging. They allow branding and key information to be added in a cost-effective manner. This method uses a very small metal clip which is attached to the netting and is very eye catching against the simple packaging.
A wide variety of different materials can be chosen for your custom printed labels, all of which can be printed double sided if required. Wineglass labelling tends to be incredibly durable and resistant from moisture and tears. This is a flexible option which can be printed in a variety of different shapes and sizes depending on your preferences.
Commonly those using this method use the reverse of the label for information about the product itself and the front utilises a more decorative design, communicating the main product selling points and branding to catch the eye of customers. For labels which require more information, multi layer labels and peelable designs are helpful options for adding further details into such a small area.
Are Wineglass Labels Recyclable?
As leading label manufacturers in the UK, we are always on the lookout for innovative new packaging options to give our customers eco-friendly options. Labelnet are big advocates of taking small steps to reduce environmental impact so are always on hand to help you out with alternative options.
We are pleased to announce our latest launch, recyclable wineglass labels!

The Labelnet team have been working hard to design a 100% recyclable wineglass label which keeps its high strength and flexible properties. Not only will you be offering your customers an environmentally friendly alternative to many competitors on the market, but you can be rest assured that the labels will not break or scuff during transportation. From production through to transport, and supermarkets through to arriving in your customers home, the labels will remain in pristine condition.

Recyclable wineglass labels can be used as food labels across a wide variety of grocery products to offer a more sustainable packaging option. You will often see fresh fruit and vegetables in the supermarket come in netted bags, such as oranges, lemons, onions and garlic. You may or may not have noticed that as of recently, it is also becoming a more popular label option for netted bags of cheese and confectionery products.
Is the printing process affected by recyclable wineglass labels?
Changing printing methods can sometimes be an inconvenience that may seem like more effort than it is worth. Our transition to recyclable wineglass labels causes very little disruption and we aim to make the process as smooth as possible for your business.
The printing process begins with creating the base design using our top of the range Flexo labels press, after which our customers will typically use their own printers for the direct thermal print which prints barcodes/ expiry dates 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. For more information on this, see our thermal labels page.
