When labeling self-adhesive labels, problems such as bubbles, warped edges, wrinkles, and poor adhesion are often encountered. What caused these problems?

It is very common for the label to be warped, especially when it is pasted on a curved container. Users usually think that the label is stickier, the better, but this is not necessarily the case. Because of the variety of container materials, the surface characteristics of each material, the area that can be pasted, the thickness of the label, etc., there are many factors that will cause the problem of label lift. First, you must first determine the following conditions.

  • What type of container is the label attached to?
  • Is the label pasted manually or is it an automatic labeling machine?
  • Environmental conditions for label exposure?
  • Transportation and storage conditions and more depending on your specific needs.

Check the condition of your container

As far as possible, ensure that the surface of the container is clean, dry, and free of dust and oil before labeling.

The design size of the label may not be suitable for the labeled bottle or container. In addition, if the shape of the plastic and glass bottle container is different, it will also cause some label adhesion problems.

Investigation of label storage and use environment

Usually, the problem is not the label itself, but the environment. In cold, high temperature, and humid environments, the adhesive is not easy to adhere to and fix. As the season changes, low temperature, humidity, and other issues will affect the label bonding. Store and paste the labels under dry room temperature conditions as much as possible. The choice of label material should also consider environmental factors.

Choosing an experienced label printing factory to cooperate with can provide you with the most suitable materials, adhesives, and printing selection recommendations, which can avoid the above label problems.
