How to Properly Store Your Labels

When considering all of the environmental concerns that will influence label application, proper label storage is often overlooked. Just as with the product itself, the quality of your label will be affected by improper storage. Learning how to store your labels properly will extend their shelf life significantly. Here are some tips to get most out of your labels:

  • Avoid UV light. Direct sunlight and other UV rays will cause discoloration or fading. Storing your labels in an opaque container will shield them from harmful light.
  • Extreme temperatures should be avoided, as this can affect the adhesive. Store your labels in a cool area, away from sunlight.
  • Avoid moisture. Humidity can also cause issues with the adhesive. Storing your labels in a closed, opaque container will help. Consider storing your labels in an air-conditioned area.


  • Avoid dust, this is especially important with labels that are run on applicators or thermal printers. Dust will slowly wear on the mechanisms of applicators and printers, acting like a fine sandpaper. If you follow the steps above, avoiding dust will be easy!

Follow these tips to keep your labels looking as pristine as the day you received them. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have specific questions about how to store your labels or anything else label-related.
