Beer Bottle vs Beer Can Labels
When it comes to print production, there is no real difference between bottle labels or beer can label designs. They are both printed to the highest-quality on either our flexographic or digital press, available on a wide range of paper and polypropylene materials and produced on rolls (for either machine or manual application). The only major difference is the size and shape of the label as well as your design. With over 2,000 pre-made cutters in stock, we can save you time and money with our expert beer can label printing.
As to whether the beer tastes better drinking from a bottle or can…we’ll leave that to the experts.
Printing Can Labels vs Printing Cans
For many brewers, budget is limited when it comes to packaging, but no one wants to lack on quality or design, which is where having printable beer can labels can be an extremely cost-effective method of branding your beers. Using the latest digital print technology can make your beer can label design look as eye-catching and cool as having it printed directly onto the aluminium can itself. The benefit of labelling your beer cans is also being able to add luxurious embellishments or raised textures which you cannot do directly onto a can.
Opting for the method of printing directly onto your beer cans via screen printing is generally rather expensive for short runs, so not ideal for micro-brewers or any brewery on a limited budget.
What materials should I use for my custom beer can labels?
When applying labels to your beer cans, the conditions of the can will be both cold and wet after being filled via a wet-fill process with your delicious, crisp, beer. Therefore, it is vital with any beer can labels to have a waterproof material which withstands both cold temperatures and spillage. We recommend a polypropylene (PP) material with a strong, waterproof adhesive. This material comes in clear, white, or metallic colours which we can print to your specific requirements.
