Label Planet: Leave Them Blank Or Break Out Your Calligraphy Kit - Ways To Use Labels Without A Printer…
Our website is chockful of advice and tips for printing labels BUT we know that labels can also come in handy even if you never let them near a printer. Whether you leave them blank or get creative with calligraphy, there are loads of ways to use labels without needing a printer at all.
Handwritten labels provide the perfect personal touch, whether you’re writing to friends, sending gifts for special occasions, or creating a personal connection with customers. Simply knowing that someone has taken the time to sit down and write out an address or a friendly message makes an item all the more special to receive. Of course, there’s also the benefit that if you don’t particularly like to use computers then handwriting your labels is a simpler and easier way to go.
Handwritten labels do take longer than printed ones, so it’s probably best to only commit to handwriting labels if you know you’ve got the time (or a team of helpers!) to get them done. All of our labels can be handwritten; if you select one of our non-paper products, please note that you may need to use a more permanent writing implement (such as a permanent marker pen) to make sure that your print stays perfectly in place.
Get Colour Coding
If you need to get things organised, coloured labels are the perfect way to get your stuff colour coded. We have a range of colours including six pastel colours (permanent or removable adhesive), five fluorescents, gold and silver, brown Kraft, and, of course, standard white (permanent or removable adhesive).
Colour coding comes in handy in all sorts of situations, whether you’re organising and keeping track of stock at work, organising and keeping track of your family at home, organising and keeping track of students in a school or employees in a company, organising and keeping track of stuff that needs to be moved from one premises or home to another, or organising and keeping track of schedules and deadlines.
You can leave your labels blank or add notes to help keep track of what is what, where, when, why, who, and (possibly even) how. Some of our coloured labels are available with a permanent adhesive or a removable adhesive, so you should be able to find the perfect label, whether you need to make sure that something is labelled permanently or you’re after a temporary label that you can remove when you no longer need it.
Get Creative With Kid’s Activities
Labels can come in handy for all sorts of arts and crafts projects, whether you’re looking to engage your children in an educational project or simply looking for a way to keep them distracted when it’s cold and rainy outside.
Our labels can be stuck onto homework, reward charts, exercise books, clothing, or project and activity materials, and they can be written on with just about any kind of writing implement, from pens and pencils to crayons and glitter sticks. In fact, the only limit to their uses is your own (and your children’s) imagination!
Whether you’re wrapping up presents for friends and family or looking for a simple, decorative way to seal your product packaging, our labels are an excellent finishing touch. You can opt for one of our colourful labels to add a fun, bright finishing touch or select from one of our transparent labels for a professional, subtle addition to your items.
Our removable labels are ideal for adding reminders and temporary notes to your diary, planner, calendar, the office noticeboard, or the fridge at home (or at work!). You can scribble a quick note, leave it up for yourself or someone else to see, and then remove it when the job is done, without doing any damage or leaving any adhesive residue behind.
Gloss clear polyester labels (GCP) can be used as transparent white boards; simply use a whiteboard marker to write or draw on one of these labels, then wipe it clean and start all over again.
Finally, permanent labels are a great away to get your cupboards, drawers, boxes, or whatever particular filing system you prefer under control. At work you can get to grips with your various in-trays and out-trays, get your desk organised to within an inch of its life, and, of course, get your paper work under control. Labels are also ideal for use at home, especially if you’ve got a family or a busy home office to get organised. Labels are also a great way to organise your kitchen, especially if someone you live with has got food allergies or medication to keep track of, or you’ve simply got cupboard after cupboard full of cutlery, crockery, and assorted utensils whose purpose you may or may not have forgotten.
Removable labels are perfect study companions; you can mark important passages or pages in books, add notes to revision guides and source materials, or create study cards to revise for exams. You can stick these notes into books, onto revision notes, or even around the house to help you learn key points throughout the day. Once an exam is over or a piece of coursework has been submitted, your labels can be removed without doing any damage.
Get Greeted & Seated
Our labels can be used as simple name badges and name labels for both personal and professional occasions. You can make name badges for parties where guests can decorate their own badges, design badges to match the theme of your event, create personalised badges for each guest, add place cards to your tables to make sure everyone has a place to sit (and knows where to go!), or label up gift or party bags to ensure that there’ll be no tears and tantrums when it’s time to go home. They can also be used to create name badges and table place or seating cards for meetings and events held by businesses and organisations, whether it’s a company gathering, fundraising event, networking event, a conference, or even just the Christmas do!
