Ever walk into a room full of strangers and panic about how you’re going to introduce yourself to the crowd? You’re not alone! Introductions can often be quite intimidating.

The same applies to introducing your brand’s products to customers, too. After all, you want to make an excellent first impression from the get-go! Your products also deserve a shoutout that customers can see and touch and experience.

Why is labeling and packaging of products important?

Product labels are an underrated part of the unboxing experience. They increase the amount of interactive and serendipitous surprise leading up to your product, and they’re also an effective way to provide additional information about your product. Clothing and accessory sizes, beauty and skincare shades, candle and fragrance scents, and more can be conveyed through your product’s corresponding label topped off your branding!

Consistent brand presentation across all platforms, including product packaging, is proven to increase revenue by 23 percent. So don’t sleep on the power of labeling your products since you want your branding to be cohesive throughout the entire customer experience.

What can product labels look like?

When considering how to label your product, you’ll want to consider how customers can get up close and personal with your brand. Inviting unboxers to read important product care details, learn about your brand’s story, and understand how to dispose of their packaging properly lets customers in on the action.

Sticker labels are a surefire way of labeling your products without taking up much physical real estate. Simply peel and put a sticker label on surfaces like jars, skincare containers, coffee bags, and more. And if you need to convey more information about your product or brand, include a custom QR code onto a sticker for customers to simply access after the unboxing experience.

Custom-printed hang tags are another option for items like apparel, accessories, and textiles. Tie hang tags for clothing on belt loops or around bags, or let them hang from shoelaces and cosmetic pouches. Leave your brand’s logo and a lasting mark on a hangtag by incorporating a short mission statement. Adding a QR code to your custom hang tags will show customers that you’re mindfully thinking about every unboxing component – like directing them to your website or a page covering packaging disposal instructions – for a circular customer experience.

And patterned tape shouldn’t be left out of the labeling group, either! There are definite uses for creative packaging tape to label products with your logo or which sustainability framework your product belongs to. A reminder that your product packaging is eco-friendly to boot can be boasted on customized paper tape surrounding shipping boxes or sealing product boxes. Washi tape, which is packaging tape’s decorative sibling, does a dashing job in dazzling up paper products like invitations, envelopes, and cards with your brand’s logo.

So then, what about the end of life of your product labels? We didn’t forget to foray into the beautiful world of planet-forward product labels! Let’s dive in on how you can get to labeling without leaving a negative impact on the planet.

What makes eco-friendly product labels better than traditional labels?


Of course, when thinking of the packaging that goes into creating a stellar unboxing experience, you also want your business’s environmental impact to stay as sustainable as possible. No need to make complicated compromises, though! Eco-friendly product labels can take the form of fully compostable stickers, recycled paper hang tags, and planet-positive packing or decorative tape.

noissue packaging, shipping, and labeling products follow the three below frameworks that contribute to a circular economy:

  • Compostable (made from Forest Stewardship Council-certified compostable paper or materials)
  • Recycle (made from recycled or recyclable materials)
  • Reusable (made to be repurposed).

Turning the typical unboxing experience into one that’s memorable and reduces your brand’s environmental footprint will make you stand out from the sea of businesses still using traditional (and much more wasteful) packaging.

Choosing product labels made from more earth-friendly materials will signal new and loyal customers that sustainability is more than just a trend – it’s a significant part of your brand’s DNA! And with more consumers preferring to purchase from brands that make clear commitments to sustainability, you’ll be establishing your business as one that’s contemporary and conscious.

So now that you know why labeling your products with thoughtful labels is important, here’s how you can go forth in packaging products with eco-labels that don’t bore unboxers or bear harm toward the earth!
