    nutraceutical labels from Lightning Labels Shoppers will pay special attention to nutraceutical labels after New Years.
    The end of the year is not too far off, which means supplement and vitamin makers should consider revamping their nutraceutical labels to attract shoppers with New Year's resolutions. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, brands that aren't already thinking about their holiday marketing strategy could be missing out on an important opportunity to jumpstart sales. While health and dietary products may not yet be top-of-mind for consumers seeking holiday gifts for their loved ones, millions of shoppers with health-related resolutions will be looking for products that can help them achieve their goals. With the right custom nutraceutical labels, brands can ensure their vitamins and supplements satisfy consumers' demands for healthy products. According to an infographic from Betterment.com, an online investment platform, nearly half of Americans make New Years resolutions. Forty-seven percent of these individuals set goals to improve themselves in some way and 38 percent make resolutions related to weight. In the weeks leading up to New Year's Eve and for months after the holiday, consumers will pay special attention to product labels. With the help of Lightning Labels, brands can create custom nutraceutical stickers that grab shoppers' attention and turn them into buyers.

    3 Tips for Creating Eye-Catching Nutraceutical Stickers

    As the winter holidays approach, brands looking to revamp their product packaging shouldn't wait any longer to order nutraceutical stickers. When designing labels for the winter shopping season, there are several considerations to keep in mind: 1. Embrace the Season with Holiday Labels: For products hitting store shelves in the coming weeks, consider adding a little seasonal cheer with holiday labels that embrace winter colors. Lightning Labels' four-color printing process can create stickers and labels in an incredible variety of hues. 2. Speak to Eco-Conscious Consumers on Nutraceutical Labels: Healthy living isn't the only thing on consumers' minds. Green-minded shopping practices have become mainstream, and many people strive to only purchase items that have been made with the Earth in mind. Especially if they've made a resolution to be more eco-conscious, consumers will respond well to green packaging. Lightning Labels offers several eco-friendly sticker and label materials to choose from. 3. Highlight Important Information on Nutraceutical Stickers: Come the first of the new year, shoppers will be reading product labels thoroughly as they seek out items that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Put an emphasis on ingredients, health benefits and other important information on nutraceutical stickers. Lightning Label's digital printing services allow brands to place small, yet clean and legible print on any product label.

  • Custom Vitamin Labels: Design Your Own Labels to Sell Your Products' Health Benefits

    Design Your Own Labels in Time for Cold and Flu Season

    design your own labels with Lightning Labels Lightning Labels can help you design your own labels for vitamins.

    If your business manufactures vitamins and supplements, you can design your own labels to take advantage of an important sales opportunity in the coming months. While fall is most often associated holidays, cold-weather festivities and preparations for winter, it can also signal the beginning of a different kind of season: cold and flu season.

    The flu epidemic hits every year, and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it's practically impossible to determine how severely the virus will spread. While flu season usually reaches its peak in January or February, an outbreak can occur as early as October and the epidemic can continue through May. Because last year's flu season was particularly harsh, consumers are likely more conscious of the disease than ever before. People are shopping for products that can help them maintain good health, and custom vitamin labels that are unique and informative can make your products stand out from competitors.

    In late January, a contributor for Forbes pointed out how the strong flu season was an incredible sales period for pharmacies and over-the-counter cough- and cold-product makers. Whether you make full-spectrum multivitamins or sell herbal supplements aimed at improving immune systems, you can achieve similar results this year by marketing your products effectively with custom labels.

    3 Tips for Designing Custom Vitamin Labels

    While your products may be small, likely the amount of information you want to provide consumers is not. Maximize the space your product packaging provides with custom vitamin labels that reflect your brand's quality, as well as your products' preventative or healing powers. Here are three tips to consider when creating custom labels for vitamins and supplements:

    1. Partner with a Label-Printing Expert to Create Vitamin Bottle Labels:

    Especially if you're designing labels yourself, it's important to work with a label printer that can accommodate all of your needs. Lightning Labels has extensive experience with vitamin bottle labels and offers several reliable label material options, including removable and squeezable ones, as well as various polypropylene options. Additionally, our diversity of label shapes and sizes are sure to match all items in your product suite.

    2. Strive for Quality with Labels for Vitamins:

    The vitamin and supplement market is large, and as cold and flu season approaches, competition will be particularly aggressive in the coming months. You need a custom label that stands out to ensure your goods don't blend in with the rest of the products on store shelves. Lightning Labels digital printing ensures your design looks professional and reflects the quality of your ingredients. We offer a seemingly infinite range of colors to choose from and our printing process captures even the most minute details in designs to create labels that are a cut above those on competitors' goods.

    3. Set Your Products Apart with Custom Label Printing:

    While a quality label can help your products stand out on store shelves, you need a design that captures shoppers' attention. Whether you're looking to market your offerings temporarily for cold and flu season or are seeking new long-term product packaging, it's important to know what your competitors are doing e then head in a more innovative direction. For example, in addition to listing ingredients, consider explaining how the most active ones can help boost immunity or soothe cold symptoms. For vitamins aimed at children, you can add cartoon graphics fun facts. With Lightning Labels' labeling solutions and printing service, your options for how to design labels to create something unique are limitless.

Material Descriptions

Materials

BIOSTONE

One of our eco-friendly options that is actually made of stone—no trees are used. This material should not laminated.

CAST GLOSS

This is another material specially designed for the wine industry. It is paper-based with a high-gloss white finish. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

CHROME (SILVER) BOPP

This material has the same water and oil-resistant properties as our White BOPP and Clear BOPP, but has the "mirror-like" look of shiny chrome.

CLASSIC CREST

Best suited for wine labels, this is a white paper stock with a dull matte finish. It is not suitable for lamination and is therefore not waterproof. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

CLEAR BOPP

This is the clear version of the Polypropylene (BOPP) material. It has the same waterproof qualities as the White BOPP. It provides more of a "no label" look and is also suitable for window stickers (where reverse printing of the image allows the label to be applied to the inside of a glass window and be viewed from the outside).

ESTATE #9

This is a great option for wine labels, gourmet foods or applications where a textured finish is desired. Being a paper stock, it's not as water-resistant or durable as BOPP, but its light cream color and textured feel add a touch of the "unusual" to the right product. It features a special adhesive (removable in 100+ degree hot water) and a stronger liner particularly suited to machine application. Not suitable for lamination.

GOLD POLYESTER (METALIZED)

This material will make your labels shine! Suitable for most labeling applications, it has a strong adhesive backing and must be laminated. Choose glossy laminate to make your label designs pop, or matte for a unique, elegant look.

KRAFT (RECYCLED)

This is a recycled 100% post consumer waste material. It is a 55# paper material that is a wonderful option if an “earthy” appearance is desired. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water. It is not suitable for lamination; therefore, it is not water or oil resistant.

REMOVABLE WHITE BOPP

This material is the same as our standard BOPP, but has a special, "less aggressive" adhesive designed to allow the label to be removed or re-positioned after application. Depending on the surface it will be applied to, customer testing is strongly recommended. We can provide samples for this purpose.

SATIN CLOTH

Quite the unique material! Yes, it is woven satin acetate cloth. Think wine or spirit labels! This material will make your product packaging POP. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.

SQUEEZABLE

A white, 3mil film that is better suited for squeezable applications. This material has proven to work well in a variety of applications, so you can be confident it will perform well for you.

VELLUM (RECYCLED)

A great “green” choice, this 60# vellum is 100% recycled with 100% post consumer waste material. Cannot be laminated. Is neither water nor oil-resistant. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.

WHITE BOPP

This is our most commonly used material and is suitable for most applications. It's a polypropylene material with a permanent adhesive. It is impervious to water and oils, and is particularly suitable for bath and body products, as well as food containers.

WHITE EARTHFIRST PLA

A more environmentally friendly alternative to White BOPP. The PLA stands for Polylactic Acid (a biopolymer made from corn rather than petrochemicals). Similar look and feel to BOPP and suitable for most applications, but should not be used directly on candle containers.

WHITE FLEXIBLE VINYL

This is our most substantial material. The vinyl is thicker than BOPP, and is most suitable for outdoor applications where greater strength and durability are needed, or where lengthy exposure to the elements is an issue.

WINDOW DECAL (CLEAR/ULTRA-REMOVABLE)

We offer this window decal option as an alternative to static cling. The face stock is clear with excellent clarity. The adhesive is an ultra-removable featuring excellent weatherability and UV resistance. It removes cleanly from a wide variety of substrates without staining or ghosting. Why worry about static clings staying on when you can have removable adhesive there to hold it in place?

CAST GLOSS

This is another material specially designed for the wine industry. It is paper-based with a high-gloss white finish. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

Artwork Specifications

Laminates

High Gloss

High gloss is our most popular laminate. It is the least expensive option and provides protection for the label and a high gloss shiny finish.

Matte

The Matte Laminate provides your label with a dull, non-glossy finish. Some customers consider this achieves a more "natural" look.

Thermal Transfer

This is a gloss laminate that is designed to work with most over-printing thermal transfer printers. We do recommend you get samples first to test through your own printer before placing an order with this laminate.

UV Outdoor Gloss

As the name implies this is best used for labels that will be used outdoors. It has a high gloss finish with excellent UV resistance. It is best paired with our vinyl material for the most durable outdoor label.
