As the name suggests, freezer labels are specialty labels formulated specifically for use in frigid environments. Every element of the label—especially the substrate, adhesive, and inks—must not only be stable at room temperature, it must also be able to withstand the extreme cold of many food packaging/storage, laboratory, and warehouse settings. It's especially important that the adhesive itself doesn't freeze or "deaden," causing the label to detach and fall off the package.
Freezer labels are not created equal; different types of cold environments require different types of labels. Fortunately, we're old pros at the freezer label business, and we stock a variety of specially matched combinations of label materials created for specific types of cold and even super-cold settings. We can provide guaranteed freezer-grade labels for the following uses:
1. Cold storage and distribution
2. Blast freezing / industrial kitchen
3. Co-packing, perishables
4. Pre-frozen food packaging
5. Cryogenic lab environments, including nitrogen exposure
6. Sub-zero outdoor or warehouse elements, including pallets
7. Corrective labeling for already-frozen surfaces
Most freezer labels fall into two categories: those meant for dry conditions, and those meant for conditions where frost and/or moisture might be associated with the cold. Dry freezer labels tend to be made of paper; wet freezer labels are always made of moisture-resistant synthetics like plastics and vinyls. All our freezer labels come with pressure sensitive (PS) self-adhesive coatings that require only firm pressure to adhere; no need for heat or water activation.
In addition to specialized, ready-to-apply custom labels, we offer blank freezer-label templates, so you can print your own. Formats include both roll and sheet.
