Everything You Need To Know About Custom Labeling

Custom labeling is essential to having a product that actually sells. Most products have packaging that looks like most other packaging, allowing it to go unnoticed on the shelf among hundreds of other products that look very similar. How can a product truly stand out in the right way?

Unsuccessful Custom Labeling

Custom Labeling - MJS Packaging BlogIt isn’t enough for a label to simply be loud or unique. Every label out there is going to be at least slightly different from all the others. And while bright and loud labels can certainly get you noticed, if they are ugly or forgettable, it won’t do the trick. Sometimes a label may be “trying too hard” and can actually deter consumers.

Successful Custom Labeling

The key is to create packaging and a label that stands out, is attractive to the eye, but also is easily identifiable from a distance because of its correct use of colors to make consumers associate that particular combination of colors with your product. For example, in 2007 the Wrigley Company debuted the 5 Gum line of chewing gum and saw a dramatic boost in revenue. You may have seen this packaging in the stores. It’s a sleek black package with a bright label that is easily distinguishable from its competitors.

Another example is the Snickers bar. Unlike many other candy bars, you don’t have to be able to read the label of a Snickers to know what it is. If you see it from across the store, you’ll know what it is because your brain associates that perfect blend of brown packaging with blue and white lettering with the Snickers bar. If you can create a custom label and use its colors in such a way that consumers will associate them with your product, you’re heading in the right direction.
