Answering Your Questions About Custom Roll Labels

Updated 05/11/2023

Whether you're making product labels, custom stickers, shipping labels, or stickers for event decorations and favors, it's difficult to know which labeling option at is the right one for your project. Our custom label service allows you to have your design professionally printed by us on either rolls or sheets.

Custom printed rolls are more cost-effective at a higher label quantity, so they're the best option for those larger projects. Need your labels to be extra durable? Ordering labels on rolls opens up the opportunity to add a protective finish to your labels in either a matte or gloss look. If you need less than 1000 labels, consider going with our custom printed sheets.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to custom roll labels.

How do I order custom roll labels?

Order custom roll labels by visiting our custom labels quote page and starting your order. Once you get to the quote page, select "Rolls," choose your labels' shape, size, material, finish, and quantity, then submit your artwork and our team will take care of the rest!

How does the approval process work?

Once you've uploaded your design and adjusted it to fit within the safe zones of your selected label, one of our artists will review it to make sure it meets standard printing requirements. They'll look out for things like legibility, proper placement on the label, and more. If they notice any potential issues, they'll immediately reach out to you about further steps. Note that our print team may make small adjustments to correct bleed and safe zone issues.

Can I receive a free proof?

We provide a free proof with your order so you can see exactly how your artwork will look on your roll.

Can multiple designs be printed in the same order?

We offer multi-variation printing for different designs, given that you need them printed on the same size and material. Once you add a design to your cart, you'll be able to add additional designs. Doing this will actually apply a multi-design discount to your order.

What is the minimum order size for custom roll labels?

Our custom printed roll labels have a minimum order size of 100 labels. If you're looking to order smaller quantities, check out our custom sheet labels which have no order minimums.

What if I need a new design or to make adjustments?

Our design program, Maestro Label Designer, allows you to create label designs from scratch, browse customizable pre-designed templates, and order your labels printed by us.

How do I know which material I should choose?

Choosing the right label material all depends on how you'll use your label and what you'll apply it to. On the custom roll labels ordering page, there's a helpful link near the material dropdown that covers the different types of materials that we offer.

Do custom roll labels come laminated?

Your custom printed roll order will give you the option to choose between a gloss or matte overcoat finish. Both of these options will protect your labels from oil and water, and give your labels a professional look.

Do you offer white underprinting on clear materials?

We apply a white underprint to custom clear labels on rolls. We just ask that you provide a vectorized file of your artwork to assist with production.

What is the core size of the roll?

All custom roll labels come printed on a roll with a three inch core.
