If you have any queries relating to an order, we can answer them straight away. Once you receive your order, we invite you to write a short review of your purchase which eventually gets displayed publicly on our website.
Everyone has a duty to preserve the environment. We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We recycle all waste and printing consumables. The inks that we use have been made as environmentally friendly as possible and ink waste is disposed of using environmentally safe processes.
70 gsm Uncoated Premium Paper
Our paper labels can be used for indoor and temporary outdoor applications. With an uncoated paper finish they look great, the plain finish enables them to be used in a wide variety of industries, making a true multipurpose label material. Our premium paper sticky labels are printed using toner based inks at very high quality which give them a vibrant look and are smooth to touch. They will withstand a splash of water every now and then but are not completely water-resistant.
When designing your sticky paper labels, please note that you do not have to have a white background. You can design your labels with whatever colour you like. So if you require a solid red background or any other colour for that matter, it's no problem. We print in CMYK inks, so metallic and fluorescent colours cannot be used for our paper range.
Our paper labels come in both a permanent and removable adhesive. The permanent adhesive is used when you do not need to remove the label after application. After a short period of time, the permanent adhesive bonds with the surface and it gets more difficult to remove. The removable adhesive is used for temporary labelling only. The adhesive will not adhere strongly making them easy to remove without leaving any residue. Ideally stuck to smooth surfaces such as book and magazine covers. The removable adhesive is not recommended for lapel labels/stickers as the adhesive is not quite strong enough, you would require permanent adhesive but we always advise testing some samples first to ensure they work with your garments.
Our service is amongst the very best. We proof your design via email within a few hours of your order. The proof you receive has been checked for errors by our experienced pre-press staff and is ready to hit the press. As soon as you approve your electronic PDF proof, the countdown has started. We will print, trim and pack your order for delivery within 48 hours subject to the current workload.
Next Day Delivery Service
Once your label order has been printed and packed up, our courier will collect it from us and it will be booked in for next day delivery (excluding weekends and holidays). Somebody will need to be in to sign for the parcel as our courier cannot leave it without an authorised signature at the address stated. If you require, you can have it delivered to your work address, simply fill in the correct delivery address within the online checkout. Be sure to add your correct phone number and email address as this is used by the courier when delivering your parcel.

Once you place an order with us online, you will receive your order number. You can login to your account on our website and check the status of your order anytime. When we update the status of your order, you will be notified via email. When your order is complete and dispatched, you will receive a tracking number from the courier. You can then login to their website to track your order through the couriers network.
If you require your labels in a hurry / immediately in most cases, we may be able to help you. Please call or email us to see when your can receive your labels at the earliest. Obviously make sure that you have artwork ready to print before you call as we will need to start the process quickly to get your order dispatched.
Size & Bleed
Always set your artwork up at the correct size, it makes it easier for everyone involved. If any of your design bleeds of the edge of the label, ensure you add at least 2mm on artwork extra on each edge of the label.
We print in a CMYK mode. This means that all colours you see on screen can be achieved on the printed sheet. If you are designing your labels using RGB mode you will notice a slight colour shift in your printed labels when finally printed. This is because many colours in the RGB mode are not within the CMYK colour gamut. We convert your artwork to CMYK upon receipt if it has not already been done.
We advise you to set your resolution to a minimum of 350dpi at actual size. This ensures that all text and graphics when printed are legible. We will usually let you know if we feel that a design will not be legible before we go to print. This is however your own responsibility as we cannot always tell from the artwork file.
CMYK 100% Black
When setting up black text, always use the CMYK colour mode as discussed earlier. You will need to ensure all text is made from 100% Black only and not a mix of RGB or CMYK colours. We can not be held responsible if your artwork is set-up incorrectly and text doesn't print as crisp as it possibly could do. We provide these artwork guides to ensure you get the best possible print. Feel free to discuss any artwork requirements with us.
Paper Labels, what are they good for?
In short, premium paper labels are good for almost every labelling requirement except where water resistance is required. Think office, warehouse, retail establishment, the list goes on and on. You’d be surprised how many paper labels pass you by everyday, you’d be hard pressed to not see a paper label during your working day. Here at Stickythings Ltd we look out for labels all day long, checking designs, quality, finishes and nearly every other aspect. Looking for ways to provide a better label experience for you. We’ve been labelled geeks before, excuse the pun!
Why use our premium labels
Our premium paper labels are printed using very expensive and highly calibrated industrial printing presses. We have invested tens of thousands of pounds in the equipment to bring you a speedy & quality service. The resolution you will receive on your labels is far better than you would obtain on a home printer giving you the professional results you desire.
Many people choose to print their own labels in-house, you can choose to do this yourselves but we would advise that you weigh up all the costs involved beforehand. As we are setup to print paper labels all day long we drive the costs down for both materials, consumables and labour. On a typical day we produce many thousands of paper labels at very low unit costs.
You will need to take in the following costs when accounting for your home-made printed labels. First you will need to cost in the label printer and also the label material and shipping charges for purchasing these. Then the consumables that the printer requires, whether it is ink or toner. You will also need to cost in the labour charge for the time printing the labels. You will probably find that by the time you have completed these costings it works out far more cost effective for your staff to be concentrating on your core business and let us do the professional printing for you.
Whether you’re an IT professional creating asset labels for your computer equipment or a chef creating delicious cupcakes to sell in your local supermarkets, you’ll need a label somewhere along the lines. These premium paper labels are the most cost effective label that we produce here at Stickythings Ltd, making them extremely handy for small and start-up businesses.
