Pet Food Labels
Pet food labels are the printed or digital information displayed on pet food packaging that provides important details about the product, such as its ingredients, nutritional value, and feeding guidelines. These labels are typically required by law to include specific information, such as the product name, net weight, guaranteed analysis, and a list of ingredients.
Pet labels are growing as an industry and in today’s market, which is why it is essential that you are meeting your competitors with attractive branding that will set your product apart. We have an assortment of materials and sizes to choose from, as well as services available for custom-printed labels and label sizes. If you are in need of these urgently, we can dispatch our stocked products same-day if ordered before 4pm Monday-Thursday.
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:

Pet Labelling Materials
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 manufacturing details. 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.
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 oils and vinegars that may come into contact with them.
Our biodegradable labels make a great eco-friendly alternative. Made out of sugar cane waste and hemp linen fibre, these labels are fully biodegradable, compostable, as well as vegan-friendly, If you are promoting food made out of healthier or eco-friendly ingredients, these would be an excellent fit.
Perhaps you need a label that adds an essence of warmth and homely aesthetics to your good products. Perfect for small businesses looking to give off an approachable feel. These labels will stand out with their unique ribbed texture.
Another highly popular material is our coloured labels in red, green, blue, and yellow. If you need your products to stand out and be noticeable, adding some colour is a great way to do this! You can even use different colours to differentiate different flavours on your pet snacks and treats!
