Another way you can label your products to deter people from mishandling your products is by displaying warnings that your product is fragile. We like to think that a “Fragile, handle with care” label will prevent somebody from being careless when handling your package. A “fragile” warning label shouldn’t be overlooked, it only takes somebody to drop your product once for it to break.
Labelling of products is an often-overlooked aspect of packaging protection, but they do help. We promise. Take a look at our range of warning labels.
A mistake that often happens is that a company goes for the cheapest tape instead of the most suitable tape. Yes, you may be saving some money by choosing a very cheap tape, and especially when using a lot of it. However, a cheap tape is usually of low quality, meaning it won’t hold for very long, especially in harsh temperature conditions. A strong tape can prevent products escaping from their packaging and being damaged.
If you’re looking for a strong, high-quality tape, we recommend using reinforced gummed paper tape. It’s strong, temperature tolerant and tamper-evident. Oh, and I forgot to mention, it’s eco-friendly as well. If you want to discover more about this tape, check out our complete guide to gummed paper tape.
