Are you working on a new design for your product labels? Or maybe you’re just a label nerd, and you want to see what the best look like?
In this article, we’ll show you five of the best labels we’ve seen throughout 2021 to help inspire your label designs so you can take a new, better design to your label printer in 2022.
We’ll look at labels on a range of materials, including transparent, biodegradable, and special effects to give you a wide range and so you can see what is possible.
Let’s get started!
Monochrome salt & pepper
Don’t you just love the simplicity of this label and how it uses the product and its color and texture to make the design pop?
This is a simple label where white ink is printed on a transparent material then stuck onto a glass container.
It’s so simple and clean but makes this product packaging look super-premium and desirable.
Rarely have we seen such a simple design be so effective. Hats off to whoever designed this!
Posh Cock Gin
This label has got to be one of our all-time favorites!
The mirror gold sticker pops and will really make this product stand out on the shelf next to its competitors.
The gold material looks so premium and is water in scratch-proof, so that this product will look great for the whole shelf life of the drink.
Biodegradable takeaway labels
These biodegradable paper rectangle labels are entirely compostable. You can throw this whole takeaway food package straight in the recycling, and it will completely degrade.
The matte finish on this label also looks excellent.
These innovative materials are the future and receiving more and more compostable materials available on the market.
This particular material is made from a sugarcane fiber byproduct called bagasse.
Glitter sheet labels
Glitter is one of the craziest materials around.
It can be too much if you don’t use it sparingly, and some of these labels get it spot-on.
These glitter labels are on sheets instead of rolls. Sheets make it easy to distribute and store labels. Sheets also protect each label and make it quick to peel and apply to your product or packaging.
Holographic tigers head
We had to include this design because it’s an all-time favorite.
The Tigers head with the holographic effect as it catches the light looks simply stunning. It shows just what can be created when you let your imagination run wild.
