What are my options when printing custom labels?
Custom labels are one of the most diverse printed products available. They can be created in virtually any size, shape, or color, and can be constructed using a variety of materials, adhesives, and coatings. Labels are great to use for a multitude of projects such as labeling items in your home, office, or school setting.
There are many different ways you can print custom labels, but in this article, we will discuss just a few of them.

Flat Sheets, multiple labels per sheet
Standard or Heavy-Duty Thickness
