Horticultural labels typically fall into three categories – Loop lock or selt-tie tags, waterpoof self adhesive and economy direct thermal labels. Our garden centre and plant nursery customers tend to print using thermal label printers, laser printers or the trusted permanent marker pen. We supply our clients with horticultural labels to suit all three technologies.
Waterproof labels are the most commonly found label in horticulture. Our customers usually need plain white labels for jobs where a good weather resistance is needed and of course a label that can be wiped clean. Usually ordered with a permanent adhesive, they can also be ordered with a peelable adhesive.

Loop lock labels
Also known as tie on tags, these are very popular horticultural labels. These are all waterpoof and tear resistant. Come in a range of colours. For larger quantities these tags can have a perforated tear off segment. Come in sheet form for laser printing or on rolls for thermal printing
The self-tie loop lock is a simple, quick and easy method of tagging plants, shrubs and trees. The self-tie loop lock is looped round the stem or branch of a plant and then the notched end locks into the “key-hole” shape at one end of the tag.
Thermal (or Direct Thermal) labels
Thermal labels are the simplest and easiest labels and popular in garden centres and plant nurseries. Whilst they are not waterproof, they are in demand because they print without ink. Load them into a thermal label printer and they’re ready to use. Usually ordered with a permanent adhesive, they can also be ordered with a peelable adhesive.
You need resin ribbons for printing onto plastic horticultural labels and tags. Resin ribbons are slightly different to wax ribbons which are usually used for printing onto paper labels and tags.
Other horticultural labels that may be of interest to you are; push in labels, stick on labels, bed in labels, thermal self adhesive labels and swing labels. Contact us to find out more about these labels.
