What Are Peel & Reveal Labels?
Put simply, peel & reveal labels are nested labels with multiple layers. The user can peel back the label and discover more information. These labels need to be carefully produced to prevent ripping; when made properly, they allow you to fit more information into a limited space.
A peel & reveal label can have more than two faces , printing on the face & adhesive sides.
This trend carries over from the clothing and accessory label applications which can also have multiple pages, and resemble booklets. Substrates used range from Paper , Tyvek, to various plastic foils and textiles.
Peel & Reveal Labels For Practicality
These labels have long been used in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, simply because they allow you to put a lot of compliance and technical data into a small space. In industries where products are small, but must include a lot of information – such as, increasingly, the food and drink sector, peel & reveal labels provide a simple, space saving solution that avoids encroaching too much onto branding and marketing space.
For food label printers, a peel & reveal label provides extra pages to include nutritional information, sample recipes, allergen warnings, and more. In fact, any product that comes with a lot of information can benefit from a peel & reveal label, from t-shirts and belts, to toys and kettles.
