Q: How long does it take from order to completion?
A: From the time we receive a PO until the labels are received by our client it would usually take 6-8 working days, however depending on the complexity of the order and if the artwork, plates, or dies are required this may vary slightly.
Q: What do I need to supply to you?
A: Ideally we need your artwork in a high res PDF format with all fonts outlined and 3mm bleed (Bleed is the area outside of the label that goes beyond the edge of the sheet before trimming/cutting). We also have all the latest up-to-date software including Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign.
Q: I know what I want but can’t do the artwork myself, can you do this for me?
A: Yes, we have a dedicated art and design team that can work closely with you to create exactly what you are looking for.
Q: Are your labels durable?
A: Yes, you can choose from a number of different materials for different environments such as fridge or freezer-friendly to having a thicker paper to having a material such as polypropylene that makes it more difficult to tear the labels.
Q: How should I deliver my art files to Label World?
A: We can accept your file on CD or DVD, by email, or other electronic delivery. The best method for you may depend on the size of the completed files. If submitting files via email or other electronic methods, it is often best to collect all the necessary files into one ZIP archive file, which can easily be created from your desktop. This ensures that everything we need is in one place, and also prevents any of the files from being corrupted, which can occasionally happen.
Q: What do copy positions mean?
A: Copy position is the direction/position that your label will come off the roll. This information is required if you are using a machine applicator. If your label is hand applied then the copy position is irrelevant.

Q: What core size do I need?
A: This is the size of the inner roll your label will be supplied on. Again this information is required if you are using a machine applicator as different machines have different mandrels. The main core diameter sizes are 38mm, 45mm, and 77mm. However, if your label is hand applied we will choose the correct size according to your label.

Q: Can I get our company logo on the label?
A: Yes, we can print virtually anything on a label, all you would need to do is send us your artwork electronically and we can make a plate up for an exact replica.
Q: What is a numbered or personalized label?
A: This is where we digitally print your label with a unique difference to every label. This can be either a QR barcode for promotions or competition to each label having a different image, contact details, best before date, and much more.
Q: I am looking for special occasion labels in a fancy shape that isn’t just square, rectangular or oval; can you help?
A: Yes, we have a number of cutters available in numerous shapes and sizes but if these do not suit your requirements we can have a specialized die made up to your exact requirements.
