Making frozen yogurt and smoothie labels may seem like a niche market to you, and in fact it is. But it’s not as super-specialized as you may think, so there are plenty of sales opportunities for these specialized freezer labels.The truth is, frozen yogurt and smoothie labelsoffer some special challenges that make them more difficult to produce than some other frozen food labels. You can’t just use any old sheet label from the office supply store, and even some actual freezer food labels won’t do.The bestrefrigerator labels and freezer stickers are made with materials that can handle not just the cold, which is the top issue for all freezer labels, but also moisture and frost build-up, which can kill adhesive tack and, in some cases, simply ruin the materials the labels are printed on. Customer service and response time is also important when it comes to frozen yogurt and smoothie labels.
We make our labels in-house, on our own high-tech, dependable press, so we can deliver them quickly, and since we specialize in freezer labels, you can count on us to know them inside and out: every requirement, every quirk, every weird effect cold and moisture can have on otherwise dependable materials.
Even more than most freezer labels, frozen yogurt and smoothie labelsare susceptible to moisture, which can turn poorly-made paper labels to mush, or cause labels with low tack to slough off. Frozen yogurt is typically sold like ice cream, in other open coolers or glass-doored refrigerators. Both tend to draw in outside air, with the moisture in it condensing into either water or, more likely, frost.
Again, low-tack “freezer labels” can’t handle this. Smoothies may have it worse. When they’re made and poured into cups with labels slapped on,condensation immediately begins as the ambient moisture collects on the cup and starts pouring down it in little streams. This can render the label unreadable, damage its structural integrity, or cause it to slide off if it’s poorly made.
The solution is clear: no matter how good the deal, check the specifications before you buy your frozen yogurt and smoothie labels — or any other freezer stickers, for that matter. If the provider can’t or won’t provide the paper and adhesive specs immediately, go elsewhere. That’s not something you’ll have to worry about with Etiquette Systems. We have nothing to hide or be ashamed of, so you’ll have your specs right away. We’ll even tell you if you don’t ask!
