Can Labels

Many products can be stored in a can, most commonly cider and beer and in the ever growing market for craft beer. But in more recent times juices and water is also becoming more popular in cans as well as some wines for picnics or festivals, this is largely due to its eco-friendly credentials. It is easily recycled and only takes 60 days for an aluminium can to be recycled, remanufactured and back into retail!

There isn’t much of a difference between bottle and can labels. Some cans are printed without have a printed label on, this is called screen printing and is expensive on shorter runs. A custom can label will often cover the whole of the main cylinder surface of the can, allowing you to express the exotic flavours with the most creative artwork to entice your thirsty customers.

Types of Labels for Cans

Your cans are most likely going to be in a wet environment so we would want to look no further than our Waterproof Polyester Labels. These are splash proof and durable so perfect for cans. To completely protect the artwork we suggest placing a Transparent Label over the top or purchasing on rolls with a protective lamination.

Another waterproof option would be our Transparent Labels which can really help your artwork standout compared to the standard metallic can. If applied carefully it can look like print onto the can with the main label material being completely see-through.
