  • Info

    Custom shape label printing takes the shackles off traditional shapes like circles and squares, allowing us to form the cut in any way you require.

    Many customers ask for a cut outline that contours around their design, but we also create more intricate shapes for many specific use cases, such as:

    • Two-part labels connected by a strip or tab (such as jar labels)
    • Labels with tabs to act as seals
    • Cuts within the cut (such as holes)
    • Fits for niche shapes such as spray bottles
    • Labels that fit a custom shaped bottle or container
    • Lid labels with wrap-around sides


    And pretty much anything else! All printed in any custom size on paper, waterproof polypropylene, matt, gloss, clear, metallic and more.

    How we’ll print your custom shape labels

    Once your new labels have been proofed, we’ll print them with the latest technology, our Indigo digital presses, for fantastic sharpness and vibrancy that stands toe-to-toe with any major brand.

    Every label will then be laser cut into your desired shape, and finally prepared into the supply format you require (rolls, sheets or individually cut singles) which you can select from when ordering.

    Free setup and proofing included

    We have an in-house graphics department to assist you with the critical setup of your custom shape labels. 

    You can either show us where the cut line needs to be in your artwork file, or just provide written instructions when ordering. Either way, we’ll send you a proof that shows the label and its cut line, with an opportunity for any amendments if needed before we print.

    We can also offer artwork amendments if you need anything changed, or even create a bespoke design from scratch if you don’t have your own yet.

      High resolution AI, PSD or JPEG files are also accepted.

      For a more in-depth guide about file types click here

    • Colour

      All files supplied must be based in the CMYK colour mode, with no tints lower than 5%.

    • Font

      To avoid any issues, make the fonts part of your original document through embedding, flattening or converting them to curves in the chosen design program.

      For a more in-depth guide about font click here

    • Bleed & Safe Area

      Images need to have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. If artwork is generated at a lower resolution, then the quality of the final printed job will be affected.

    • Clear Labels with Opaque & White Elements

      The toners we use to print on clear materials are slightly transparent, this means that for the parts that you require to be opaque or to add full colour images we have to create a white base layer on the artwork behind the colour or image, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner (beneath the CMYK artwork, beneath images or on it's own).

      We can set up your artwork in our design studio, please describe which areas you require to be white or opaque in the notes box on the upload artwork page.

      Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.

      For an in-depth guide of how to setup labels with white elements please click here

    • Labels with Metallic Elements

      The way we create metallic colours is by using a silver substrate and applying a thin layer of CMYK toner to create the metallic colour required, when ordering please describe the colour required (or give the metallic swatch code from our color logic sheet which is included in all sample packs and can be ordered here FREE of charge) in the notes box at the upload artwork stage.

      The parts that you do not require metallic we have to create a white base layer on the artwork, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork, named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner beneath the CMYK artwork.

      Any white parts on your design that are not named “white” will be printed in a silver metallic.

      We can set up your white base for you here in our design studio, please describe which areas you do not require metallic in the notes box on the upload artwork page.

      Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.

    • Material & Finish Options

      Think about the appearance you are trying to achieve for your label, some materials may darken or lighten the appearance of your artwork once printed.

      The different finishes may also affect the way your labels appear, Matt effects will make the colours look a little dull or faded and a gloss finish might make them appear brighter.
