Cosmetic Label Printing

Cosmetics label printingSame Day cosmetic label printing- We’ve been printing cosmetic labels and wholesale cosmetic packaging for both large and small cosmetics companies since 1995, including clear labels with the custom “no label” look. We have 27+ years of experience creating oil resistant and water resistant cosmetics and skincare labels. We add varnish or lamination to protect label inks against smudging and dissolving. How long do labels take to print? From order to completion in a matter of hours if necessary.

Cosmetic Label Printing Aesthetics

We understand that the aesthetics of a cosmetics product is extremely important, where the message and the look of the product both need to match and both be equally effective in selling the product. Additionally, the cosmetics industry requires special care when printing cosmetic product labels to ensure that they meet very specific and particular specifications.

Often products are not flat, and require film materials that wrap around tubes or other rounded packaging, so that labels will lay permanently on the surface that is required. Without question, labels must withstand oils and moisture, because of the reality of product usage in bathrooms and other moisture rich environments. Cosmetics that are oil based, cream based, mineral based or water based all have protection placed on them so that they will last.

Thus, our wholesale cosmetic packaging and overall cosmetic labels printing quality must be of the upmost importance. Our labels for cosmetics are tested for resistance against moisture and oils.

Here is a selection of just a few of our well-known clientele…

Wholesale Cosmetic Packaging

wholesale cosmetic packagingAmong our clients, you will find L’Oreal, La Mer and Shiseido, as well as hundreds of independent cosmetics manufacturers, some of which are run as sole proprietorships, but that does not mean that they will not grow to become just as popular as the multi-million dollar corporations. We love serving the particular needs of small businesses, and understand the challenges that independents face on a daily basis, since we have gone through the same process ourselves as a small business.

For wholesale cosmetic packaging, by using the flexographic printing process for cosmetic labels, we are able to match colors using the Pantone color matching system. Therefore, gold or silver or any metallic color is not a problem for us. We also offer the option of digital cosmetic labels printing printing, which can be completed within hours, including special cut out shapes, and/or decals.

It it is also possible to print on bright gold foil, dull gold foil, bright silver foil or dull silver foil. Hot stamping, embossing and cold foil printing are also available.

When it comes to adhesives for cosmetic label printing, we offer permanent adhesive or removable adhesive. Embossing, heat stamping and foil printing are additional processes that can yield unique looking results on superior quality labels.

Custom printed extended or expanded content labels for cosmetics are available as well, where coupons, and/or additional product information can be contained within the label.

Keep in mind that if same day cosmetic label printing is required, some options that are unavailable to print within hours. For instance, flexographic printing requires plates to be created for labels can be printed. This process takes several days to complete, whereas printing digital labels can be done in as little as one hour depending on how busy we are.

We print same day cosmetic labels for all of these and more:

I have now used Nova Disc for six CD projects over the last 15 or so years. The reason I continue to use this company is for the professional, prompt, and wonderful outcome each and every time. I could not be more pleased. I’m so thankful to know they are there for future projects. They are 100% reliable!
