11 Examples of Brown Kraft Labels That Stand Out From the Rest

Updated 03/31/2022
11 brown kraft labels that stand out

The purpose of a label is to convey any necessary information to customers about the product — the name of the product, ingredients, warnings, net weight, as well as the label design and any imagery. The actual material you choose for your label can play a role in communicating information as well. A metallic material can give off a feeling of elegance, a clear label can convey simplicity, and a brown kraft label conveys that a product is handmade, natural or organic, eco-friendly packaging, or just a rustic brand feel.

With a material as niche as brown kraft, there’s generally a stylistic feel that may require your label design to be adjusted with it. We’ve compiled some of our favorite Customer Ideas submissions below, so you can see how others have done it and get inspiration to start designing your own!
