Biodegradable Labels

We are all trying to become more environmentally aware and our goal here is to help you provide labelling for your packaging that reduces harm to the environment, meet standards and works under the conditions you need it to.  We are currently supplying more biodegradable labels than ever before.

Cost of Biodegradable Labels

Important though they are to our environment, biodegradable labels are still more expensive than paper or standard plastic labels.  Let me give you a rough idea of cost – for any quantity up to 1,000 labels:

Matte biodegradable paper £200
Gloss biodegradable paper £225-£250
Gloss biodegradable plastic £250 – £275
Clear biodegradable plastic £300

 

For more than 1,000 labels, the cost per thousand labels goes down.
