Custom Labels for Unique Products
Investing in high-quality custom labels is a smart decision for your business. A well-designed and high-quality product label helps your products stand out and leaves a positive impression on your customers. The right product label will also improve product communication with purchasers and guarantee consistent branding.
You want a unique and eye-catching label that elevates your brand’s image, instills confidence in your customers, and stands up to the conditions in which your product is used. You also don’t want to trust just anyone with this job—you want to choose a product label printer who focuses on quality and takes as much pride in their work as you do.
When you partner with Columbine Label, your products will stand out on the shelves and leave a lasting impression on your consumers. We stand behind our products 100%, and if your labels are not correct due to our error, we will make it right.

What our clients are saying
“Columbine is so quick to turnaround. And if there’s an issue, they’re Johnny-on-the-spot to fix it. And their prices are really outstanding. So based on these three things, it’s pretty much a set deal.”
“Label Companies call all the time and want to show me their stuff. I don’t even look at them. I don’t shop labels. We’ve got that kind of relationship with Columbine Label. They are my oldest vendor. We have been with them forever and probably will e forever. I have no reason to look anywhere else. They’ve always taken really good care of us.”
“Columbine Label made miracles happen so I could launch my product on time. Barefoot Homestead will forever be indebted and thankful to their amazing team.”
“Columbine approached us, and we gave them an opportunity. We looked at some of their pricing ad some of their offerings, and it all looked really good. We gave them a chance, and they basically in na short amount of time, won 100% of our business.”
“I just wanted to let you know how wonderful everything looks!! It was like Christmas opening all the boxes this morning and having “show and tell” with my team:). The colors were gorgeous and the detail was perfect in the printing! I am so pleased with our total experience! We will absolutely be coming to you for all of our labels!”
“Columbine Label’s price was much better than the price of labels I ordered from an internet company. And they provided a label that actually word on the contour bottle. The service has been wonderful.”

Get Noticed, Get Purchased. Talk to an Expert Today About Your Custom Labels
At Columbine Label, we offer a variety of product label options. We recommend using our custom quote form to explain your product to us so our team of label experts can recommend the best product label type for you.
Many people use the terms “sticker” and “label” interchangeably. However, our custom labels are printed on rolls or sheeted with the liner intact. Labels are meant to sell a product in a retail environment, whereas stickers are typically printed and die cut through the liner and are for promotional purposes. In other words, stickers say something and labels sell something. While we are happy to accept custom label orders of sizes starting at 250 labels, we do not offer printing options for stickers that do not have the liner intact.
We utilize two different printing technologies for our custom labels: digital printing and flexographic printing. Each method works well for specific scenarios, and we will help you determine which printing technology is best for your project before we start running your labels.
Digital printing involves transferring digital files directly to the press, which then applies ink or toner onto various substrates to produce sharp and vibrant images. This technology offers easy art or text edits, fast turnaround times, precise color reproduction, and the ability to print custom labels on demand, making it ideal for high quality, low volume product manufacturers and retailers.
Flexographic printing involves a flexible relief plate that is coated with ink and pressed onto a variety of label substrates. It provides high-speed production and excellent ink transfer. This printing technology is widely used in a variety of industries. It is great for longer runs, projects that are cut through the liner (like tag stock keg collars), and a variety of specialty projects that cannot be done digitally.
We use a wide variety of label materials, and each one serves a unique purpose. Our most commonly used materials include biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP), tight mandrel, vinyl, digital wine stock, and tag stock. Columbine Label is also proud to offer recycled and eco-friendly stocks.
When you contact us, be prepared to provide the following information:
- The quantity of labels you want
- How many versions of the product label you need
- What you will apply the labels to (plastic squeezable bottle, aluminum can, etc.)
- Whether you will apply the labels by hand or with a machine
- The environment your custom labels will live in
You will also be asked to send in your art, regardless of whether it is print ready or not, so we can advise on your project needs.
Because of our standard operating procedures, our minimum order quantity is 250 custom labels.
Yes, we offer bulk discounts for large orders of custom labels.
Columbine Label can absolutely run batches of custom labels with variable data.
It’s our goal to print high-quality product labels you are satisfied with, and our track record speaks for itself. However, if you are unhappy with your custom labels because of an error on our part, we will make it right by reprinting and delivering your labels at no charge.
We can typically produce orders within 3 to 5 business days. However, we cannot guarantee shipping times since that is determined by the shipping carrier.
UPS is our preferred carrier, but larger orders (over 150 pounds) can ship LTL. Additionally, local companies can also choose to pick up label orders or request them to be sent via courier (additional charges).
Please note: Shipping charges are additional and may show up as a second credit card charge.
Columbine Label specializes in the printing of high-quality product labels with a quick turnaround. While we can do quick text changes and small items like bar codes, our pre-press department is very busy and unavailable for full service design work. Give us a call and we can recommend a few graphic designers that are familiar with creating art that will work well with label printing processes.
Acceptable file types: AI files (Adobe Illustrator) with “create PDF compatible file” enabled when saving the file, PDFs. Art files should be a single page only. Do not submit a multi-page file (if you cannot separate your art, please email the art to your Columbine Label representative).
