Thus, Astragraphia will provide information about the importance of making a packaging label sticker design that is safe, hygienic, and can still grab the attention of consumers.
Type of Label on Food Packaging Products
There are several types of product labels that are widely used in the Food and Beverages industry, either by function or classification. The implementation can be adjusted to the design of the food labels produced, which is important not to reduce the content of the information conveyed.
1. Product Labels
Is a type of label that is widely used. The information contained in the product label must be complete, including basic ingredients, additives, nutritional information, composition, content, product content, legality, and family date. These should all be listed on the product label.
2. Brand Label
Unlike product labels, brand labels are only a brand or logo on the product packaging. The location of the brand label can be anywhere, as well as the dimensions used. The brand label is intended to describe who makes the product.
The snack label design most often uses the brand label on the packaging. There is a reason why brand labels are attached to the packaging. In addition to explaining, brand labels are intended to make the characteristics of a company clearly visible.
3. Descriptive Label
What is also commonly found in the market is descriptive labels. As the name implies, this label serves to describe a product. Take the food industry for example. When you look at food labels there must be explanations like "Made 100% from organic ingredients", or "100% preservative free".
The explanation referred to is very broad, can be the characteristics of the product or how to use it. Examples of food labels that use this format include seasoned flour, canned food, and others. Products like this must be accompanied by a description on the packaging label.
Food labels can be pictures, text, or a combination of the two types. The media for placing food labels varies, it can be inside the package or outside the package. To be able to make food-safe packaging label stickers, you can use several print media, including: chromo, transparent, glossy / vinyl, and matte. It would be better if the food label was placed on the outside of the package.
