Labels for bottles, what you need to know to help your package stand out from the competition.
A label becomes the silent ambassador of your brand speaking directly to consumers at their point of purchase. Whether they are shopping in person at their local grocery store, or shopping online – what’s on the outside of the bottle matters just as much as what is on the inside. C.L. Smith can provide a variety of labels to best suit your packaging needs.
Pressure Sensitive Labels for Bottles
Pressure-sensitive labels are pre-coated with a pressure-sensitive adhesive. Typically they adhered to a release paper carrier. This allows for a brief application of pressure to bond the label to the bottle. Watch the video >>

Stretch Sleeve Labels for Bottles

Shrink Sleeve Labels for Bottles
Shrink sleeve labels are a plastic sleeve that is dropped over a bottle and shrunk down by heat. It adheres to the bottle and shrinks down to the form of the container. Most commonly made of PVC, the graphics may appear distorted prior to application.
- Flexible, durable & suitable for a wide range of products
- Can be made in odd shapes
- Can go over caps with perforations at the neck to create a tamper evident seal

Silkscreen printing is done directly on the bottle (it’s not actually a label). It is applied using a metal or plastic mesh screen. The non-printing surface is masked or blocked off. The screen is placed over the object and printed as ink is wiped across the screen creating a clean, crisp image.
- Highly durable print that is water and heat resistant
- Efficient, containers are ready to be filled upon receipt with no additional labeling necessary
- Very common for health & beauty packaging
