The main difference between labels for your bottles or cans is that with lager bottles you have the option of a neck label. Whilst not essential, this is an opportunity to add further design or information you wish to contain on the bottle. For cans, a simple wrap-around design is perfect to fit everything you need around the can. If you are keeping the design simple, then you can choose to have one front label for both bottle and cans – it’s entirely up to you how you want the labels to look and the information you want to include.
Label Printing Options for Lager Can Labels
A popular choice for many brewers is an aluminium can for their delicious lager or a roll of printed labels that can then be applied to the can, being options. The most cost-effective of these two options is to print a roll of lager labels, which is what we offer here at Labelnet. Whilst having your cans printed on directly is used by many large brewers of alcoholic and soft drinks, for micro-brewers it can be expensive, especially for a small batch of labels. Choosing printed labels like ours provides many more additional benefits along with reduced production costs. Embellishments can be added such as raised lettering, patterns, or textures, which really adds to the premium look of your product.
Lager Label Materials
Along with the shape and size of your lager labels, which we can assist you with thanks to our range of over 2,000 pre-made cutters, you can choose the type of material you want your lager label to be printed on. This includes polypropylene (PP) which we recommend thanks to its waterproof properties and resistance to cold temperatures.
Polypropylene can be provided as clear labels, white labels, or metallic labels. Depending on the look you want to achieve for your lager can labels, each one provides something different; white PP is perfect for printing highly visual and bright colours that stand-out. Clear PP provides a no-label look, where you can have translucent aspects in your label design, whereas metallic PP provides a shimmer to your labels that you may prefer.
