Food labels and packaging play a critical role in influencing consumer choice. A good food label will capture attention, convince customers to make a purchase, and create a lasting impression of your brand.
Whether you are selling for retail or creating homemade products, your distinctive design should go hand in hand with the best material to get a professional look. At NextDayFlyers, we offer not just quality printing but also an exceptional experience for every one of our customers.

Choose the Right Food Label for Your Product
Each label material we offer has its unique set of advantages. The right label for your product depends on its application, look, and feel. We can differentiate these types of labels to help you make the best choice for your business.
Start by choosing a size from 0.5” x 1” up to 6” x 6.5”. Select from four standard shapes: rectangle, square, oval, and circle.
Our food labels come in either cut-to-size or roll format. Cut-to-size labels are printed and cut into singles according to their individual shape and size. Roll labels are printed and spun around a spool that fits most label dispensers.
Choose between 70 lb. label or white vinyl sticker for cut-to-size food labels.
70 lb. label is our standard, indoor food label material. It has a slightly glossy finish, but you may opt for elegant matte or vibrant high-gloss UV coating for added protection. When left uncoated, you can write on these labels using a ballpoint pen or permanent marker.
White vinyl is our toughest label option. This material is durable, waterproof, and stays on almost any smooth surface. It comes with an extra shiny, high-gloss UV finish that amplifies the saturation of your design.
For roll labels, we have white premium sticker paper, BOPP, and Estate adhesive paper.
White premium sticker paper is pressure-sensitive indoor label material. You may add gloss or matte lamination to make it more resistant to oil and water.
Biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) is a popular choice for food labels. It’s made with plastic properties, so it works for products exposed to water, oil, and moisture. We offer white, clear, and metallic silver BOPP labels.
Estate adhesive paper comes uncoated with a subtle, natural texture. Wine manufacturers choose this product because of its elegant effect. It comes in cream laid, white laid, and white vellum texture. You can choose to add the optional matte UV coating for moisture resistance.

Are labels safe to use on food products?
Yes, all our food labels are non-toxic and safe to use on products. However, we do recommend choosing BOPP labels if your products will be exposed to moisture, oil, or chilled in a refrigerator. This material protects the ink from running and keeps your label intact.
