How Premier Labels Practices Sustainability

Discover the practices Premier Labels have implemented in their operation to ensure sustainable label production. 

By now we’re all aware of the devastating effects of climate change. From damaged ecosystems that have driven animals close to extinction, to landfills overflowing with materials that will take decades to decompose. 

That’s why it’s so important that we all do our bit to make environmentally conscious decisions. Businesses especially can make a huge difference by reviewing their operations and adopting more sustainable practices. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the importance of sustainable practices in the label industry and how Premier Labels reduce material waste during production. 


Premier Labels’ sustainable practices 

Labels play a crucial role in product packaging and branding, with millions being produced each year. This high demand combined with the production process, and disposal of unused or outdated labels, can have an impact on the environment. 

In the UK, 14 million tonnes of nonrecyclable materials are sent to landfill sites every year, which is why efforts need to be made by businesses of all industries to reduce it.

At Premier Labels we recognise our responsibility to the environment and we’re committed to reducing the amount of waste we produce. 

Here are some of the key practices our company has implemented: 


Reducing label waste

One of the most effective ways to reduce waste in the label industry is to make your production process more efficient. By optimising label printing and cutting techniques, you can significantly reduce the volume of materials that are wasted during the manufacturing and printing process. 

However, while waste can be reduced, there will always be some material left at the end of production. We ensure these wasted materials are recycled as far as possible instead of ending up in landfill


State-of-the-art technology 

The key to an efficient production process is through the use of cutting-edge technology. At Premier Labels we invested in printing and finishing machinery that maximises production while minimising energy consumption. The printing machine also uses compostable inks, which means that when combined with sustainable materials, you have environmentally friendly labels.


Eco-friendly materials

We prioritise the use of recycled and environmentally friendly materials during our label production. By utilising recycled paper or sustainable alternatives, we can reduce our strain on natural resources. 


Minimal packaging 

We understand the importance of reducing packaging waste. Businesses are notorious for the overuse of packaging materials when shipping products. At Premier Labels we’ve adopted a policy of using minimal packaging and virtually eliminating plastic packaging when shipping labels to clients, using recycled or recyclable materials whenever possible. 


Innovative materials

Our creative team is constantly exploring new materials and techniques to improve the quality, appearance and sustainability of our labels. One of these innovative solutions is a type of wood-based label, created from sustainably sourced wood fibres. Not only do these labels create a unique aesthetic, but they also contribute to the reduction of non-renewable resources. 


Maintaining quality through sustainable practices

At Premier Labels, we believe sustainability shouldn’t detrimentally impact the quality of your labels. That’s why we pay meticulous attention to detail at every stage of the production process to ensure our labels meet the highest standards of quality, durability and appearance.

With a project as important as your product labels, it’s understandable that you want to be kept in the loop. Our team are always on hand to keep you updated and answer any queries you may have. 


Unrivalled quality 

You could have the highest-quality wine, spirits or beer on the market, but if your product labels are manufactured using cheap materials and average quality printing, this will form the consumers perception of the product inside. At Premier Labels, we pride ourselves on using high-standard materials and printing techniques we use, ensuring that your labels reflect the quality of the product inside.
