Retail Shelf Labels & Tags

Retail shelf labels are an important part of the retail experience. They provide instructions to customers and help them find what they need faster. For years, retailers across Canada have used pre-printed label stock with color blocks and thermal transfer label printers to print black text. Today, color inkjet label printers eliminate the need for pre-printed labels, and they also provide more flexibility and customization options.

As a retailer, you can use a colour label printer to create custom color retail shelf labels that match your store’s branding or even include coupons. With just a few clicks, you can design shelf labeling for your store's products that will really stand out. You can also print shelf edge signs, retail shelf price tags, adhesive shelf strips, barcodes, QR codes, and more with your colour inkjet printer.

Advantages of Printing Your Own Colour Retail Shelf Labels and Tags

Printing your own colour retail shelf labels and tags has a number of advantages:

  • You can match the design of your labels to your store's branding.
  • You can create unique designs that will stand out on the shelves.
  • Labels can include coupons or other special offers.
  • There's no need for buying and storing pre-printed shelf tag stock.
  • You can print labels any time without waiting for pre-printed stock.
  • 4-inch colour label printers are affordably priced and economical to operate.
  • You can use your 4-inch colour shelf tag printer for a wide range of label printing applications in your store including colour retail shelf tags, retail price tags, employee badges, colour coupons and stickers, and more.

We are committed to quality and recommend that you order free sample shelf labels and tags for testing purposes. Send us your design file and we will print and mail the free shelf label samples so you can see the print quality for yourself.

What You Need to Print Your Own Colour Retail Shelf Labels and Tags

Colour Shelf Label Printers

In order to print your own color retail shelf labels and tags, you will need a high resolution colour label printer, blank shelf labels and tag stock, and label design software. DuraFast Label Company can help you choose the best shelf labeling solution for your particular needs.

For most retailers in Canada, the following 4-inch colour label printers are the best options:

  • Primera LX500 — This is a 4800dpi colour label printer known for producing beautiful photo quality labels and tags. It's best for smaller shops.
  • Epson TM-C3500 — The Epson TM-C3500 colour label printer prints durable shelf edge signs, labels, and tags on demand using pigment-based inks. This printer is especially well suited for printing outdoor shelf tags in garden centers as the pigment inks are extremely durable and water and UV light resistant.
  • Epson ColorWorks C6000A — The C6000A comes in either matte or gloss versions and is suitable for a wide range of applications including printing custom colour shelf edge signs, labels, and tags.
  • Epson TM-C7500G — With a fast print speed of up to 60 feet per minute, the C7500G is ideal for larger retailers with high shelf labeling requirements.

Shelf Label Design Software

In addition to a colour label printer, you'll also need label design software. Most colour label printers come with basic label design software, but if you're looking for a more robust option for printing shelf labels with integrated barcodes and variable data, we suggest Seagull Scientific, EasyLabel barcode and label design software(Silver or Gold recommended), or NiceLabel barcode label design software.

Blank Retail Shelf Labels and Retail Price Tags

The main difference between retail shelf labels and retail shelf price tags is that the labels have an adhesive backing while the tags do not. DuraFast Label Company manufactures shelf labels and tags engineered for inkjet colour label printers. Our shelf labeling solutions are packaged in cartons of fan-folded labels / tags.

In addition to standard sizes, we can make custom shelf labeling media upon request. Let us know the printer you use, the retail shelf label or tag size, desired finish and materials, and any other requirements and we will provide you with a quote.

If you already have a high resolution colour label printer and label design software, all you need is a reliable source of blank shelf labeling. DuraFast Label Company has everything you need to print your own colour retail shelf labels and tags including 4-inch colour label printers from Primera Technology, Epson, and other leading brands, label design software, and blank shelf tags and labels in a variety of sizes and finishes.
