No question is too big or small for Headline Printers. We understand that placing a print order can be tricky, but we’re here to help.
If the below FAQs don’t provide the answer you need, get in touch via email, live chat or telephone.
We love speaking to people, so don’t be shy.
We offer all shapes!
Choose from Circle, Square, Rectangle or Custom. If you would like a circle or a square then please ensure your dimensions are equal e.g. width = 20mm and height = 20mm.
If you are printing on transparent materials, you can select mirror printing as an option so that the labels can be applied to the inside of a window for viewing from the outside.
That’s no problem. White ink is used as an underpin which effectively means that it acts as an undercoat to make colours appear solid or it can be used on its own as part of your design.
Your artwork will speak for itself on this, so please follow the instructions in the artwork guide at the bottom of this page if you are supplying print ready files.
For the most environmentally friendly label option, choose either natural white paper or uncoated paper. The labels are unlaminated, therefore can be recycled when applied to a cardboard or paper product.
Our Polypropylene (PP) labels can be recycled provided they are affixed to either a polypropylene or a polyethylene product; both plastics can be recycled together.
Top tip for choosing stickers based upon how simple they are to recycle:
For easy recycling, choose a label material that has a similar make up to the product or packaging that it is being affixed to. For example: Choose a paper label for paper or cardboard packaging. or a Polypropylene label for polypropylene or polyethylene packaging or product.
It is worth noting that laminated labels cannot be recycled. Label backing sheets also require specialist recycling facilities and subsequently are not widely recycled.
