Listed below are several different ways of packaging labels. The following information pertains generally to individual or sheet labels. Continuous labels would normally be packaged in a fanfolded stack inside a shipping carton. They could also be packaged in smaller quantities within the fiber cartons and then placed in the shipping carton. Roll labels will generally be packaged with a certain number of rolls per shipping carton.

Bulk Packed Loose

  • Labels are packed loose in a carton.
  • They can be packaged with or without chipboard inserted between a specified quantity of labels.
  • It is the least expensive packaging option.

Plastic Wrapping

  • Labels are wrapped and sealed in plastic shrink film.
  • Labels can be wrapped in specific quantities.
  • Labels can be wrapped with a chipboard insert to help prevent labels from curling.
  • Plastic wrapping helps protect the labels from damage.

Fiber Cartons

  • Labels are packaged in fiber cartons, sometimes referred to as "inner cartons".
  • Fiber cartons are a better form of protection against damage than plastic wrapping.
  • Fiber cartons help prevent labels from curling.
  • Using fiber cartons to package labels is more expensive than bulk packing or plastic wrapping.


Note: Labels stored outside of a carton should be plastic wrapped or packaged in fiber cartons to protect the labels from damage and to prevent curling.
