Baking Labels

Baking labels are labels that are used to provide information about baked goods such as bread, cakes, pastries, and other baked products. These labels can be used by bakeries, food manufacturers, or home bakers to identify and market their products.

Baked goods are not only scrumptious but make excellent products to sell to a wide market of people. Whether you are baking cakes, brownies, cookies, and other tasty or sweet treats we can supply you with superb top-quality sticker labels to promote your branding. Choose from our array of laser and inkjet printer-compatible labels, in multiple materials and sizes to suit your packaging.

If you would like to test any of our quality materials, you can order a sample pack to get a feel of what material or adhesive works best for you:


Product name: The name of the baked product should be clearly and accurately identified, such as “blueberry muffins,” “chocolate chip cookies,” or “sourdough bread.”

Ingredient list: A complete and accurate list of all ingredients in the product, including any allergens, should be provided. The ingredients should be listed in descending order of predominance by weight.

Net weight or quantity: The weight or quantity of the baked product should be clearly and accurately displayed on the label, usually in ounces, pounds, or grams.

Nutritional information: The nutritional content of the product may be required to be listed, including the number of calories, fat, protein, and other nutrients. In some jurisdictions, this information may be optional or may be required only if a specific health claim is made on the label.

Allergen information: If the baked product contains any of the major food allergens (such as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, milk, eggs, or fish), this information should be clearly stated on the label.

Date code or expiration date: The date on which the product was baked or the expiration date should be included on the label to ensure that consumers are aware of the freshness and safety of the product.

Storage instructions: Instructions for storing the product, such as refrigeration or freezing, should be included on the label to help consumers maintain the quality and safety of the product.

It’s important to note that specific requirements for baking labels can vary depending on the country, region, or jurisdiction in which the product is being sold. Additionally, some businesses may choose to include additional information on their baking labels, such as branding, marketing messages, or instructions for preparation and serving.

Labelling Materials for Baking Label Products

If you are looking for a label where durability doesn’t need to be a top priority, we have matt white paper labels that are not only cost-effective but suitable for both laser and inkjet printing. These labels can be used to display important allergy and ingredient information, company branding, and the location of the baked goods. We can supply a large quantity of these labels, and get them shipped out the next day. Whether you are a large reseller or a small homemade business, these are great cost-effective labels. They are especially popular with sweets and confectionaries, as you can purchase these labels in larger quantities if you are selling your items in bulk. 

Waterproof Plastic Labels

These waterproof plastic labels are made from polyester. They are great for displaying your product branding, ingredients, allergens, and other information professionally while also providing a layer of water resistance to protect your labels from any liquids that may come into contact with them.

Want to add that extra bit of shine to your labels? We have a selection of glossy labels stocked in all sizes, and compatible with either an inkjet or laser printer. Great for marketing your brand in a sophisticated and elegant way that will help your products to stand out from your competitors.
