Custom Coffee Labels

A high quality custom coffee label or sticker can elevate your brand.

A local roaster worked with us to product the bumper sticker that you see above. It is on a clear vinyl material with a UV laminate. It has an incredible design and helps Due South get their brand seen outside of their location in a repurposed textile mill in Taylors, SC.

We have had the pleasure to work with many different coffee roasters and retail locations over the years. We understand that quick turnaround, ability to diversify designs at a low cost, and reliability for applying them by hand or machine really matters.

Custom Coffee Bag Label

Another of our customers is Black Rock Coffee Bar, a great company out of Oregon and Washington state. They matched their bag’s flat black look with an incredible matte label made to look like it is a burlap coffee bean sack. Because of our digital press, they are able to have fine detail in the pattern in the background of the label. These guys have a rock star attitude and it comes across in their packaging.

We have many great materials and interesting sizes and shapes for elevating your coffee packaging. You can even order a custom size or shape if we don’t have what you are looking for, currently.

Budget Friendly Custom Labels & Stickers

Looking for budget friendly custom labels?

For startups and entrepreneurs, budgets can be both a friend and an enemy.

We like to shake hands with your budget. We don’t know anyone with stacks of cash laying around. You probably don’t either. (If you do, they have probably made you an offer you can’t refuse.)

As a digital printer of custom labels and stickers, we don’t have to charge silly fees. There are no plate fees. There are no setup fees. We don’t need them and neither do you.

We also have no minimums.

You can order 1 label. It may not be a cheap 1, but you can do it. We have a low startup cost, and we recommend starting at about 500 labels so that your price per label is reasonable. The more labels you order, the lower your price per label.

We don’t have price breaks, either. We don’t make you order 400% of the quantity that you need in order to see savings. You can place an order for any number you want (that is a positive, rational integer). When the cost to make that quantity goes down, your price goes down.

Our pricing is growth oriented. Small price hurdles early on, and as the order size grows and the price hurdle increases accordinglycreating a better price per label. We want to help you get on the shelf with the least amount of barrier as possible. This is one way that we try and look out for our customers. We know it can be difficult to get a high quality product for a low price, so we try to make that easier without sacrificing excellence.

Custom Bottle Labels

Custom labels on 4 beer bottles

Do you have a beer bottle that needs a custom label?

To make the most of your product’s packaging, you need to put time and money into how it is presented. What size and shape should the bottle be? Will it have direct printing on it, or will it have a custom label to vary the appearance and texture?

We recommend a label, which probably does not shock you. Having a custom label means that you can vary your package decoration to create different effects, without having to vary the package itself. This can save you money and time, especially with our digital printing technology.

We would be happy to help you get the exact custom label that you need. With over 1400 sizes in stock, we can provide almost anything you want.

If you want a more high-end feel for your bottle labels, try our Estate® materials used in the photo above. They are a thick paper based stock with a laid finish for some great texture. This material has “wet strength” to hold up when submerged in an ice bucket or put in a cooler.

For a more economical option, try our white paper. It goes well on bottles of all types that will not have a lot of moisture contact. It is our most economical option, and paired with the gloss laminate, provides some excellent looking custom labeling. This material is great for finished mason jars that will be stored in a pantry.

Bottles with custom labels.

Our ultra clear plastic is an amazing option for bottles that want to show off their contents, like in the photo above. This material is our most transparent and looks amazing on  beverage bottles of all types. Ultra clear plastic works best with a gloss laminate to help accentuate the transparency.

We would love to help you with any custom bottle labels that you might need. If you need design help, we can lend a hand with getting your artwork ready for print.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to give us a call at 877-277-4682 or by clicking the “Live Chat” link at the bottom of this page.

LABELEXPO Americas 2014

Inside of HP Indigo Press

We are pleased to be attending the Labelexpo Americas 2014 in Chicago, IL.

It takes place on September 9-11, and we look forward to seeing our current vendors and meeting new ones.

Label Expo America 2014

Labelexpo is a gathering of resources for label industry professionals from across the country and around the world. The show consists of exhibitors like press manufacturers and material suppliers or perhaps people who make software for the industry.

The expo is attended by people like us, who run custom label and sticker businesses. We have had the pleasure of attending the expo several times in the last decade and have made valuable contacts there.

Many of the companies who exhibit will show off new products or services. We have acquired machinery and vendor contacts from past visits.

We are hoping to bring back some new ways to help our amazing customers do what they do even better. Our last trip out, two years ago, we were able to acquire the label cutting machine that gives us the capability to offer individually cut labels (without all the scissor blisters).

Obviously, when we are in Chicago we will investigate some of their famous deep dish pizza. When we say “investigate,” we mean devour. And when we say “some,” we mean all.

If you are an industry professional and are planning to attend the expo, feel free to reach out to us. Maybe we can “investigate” a meal together.

If you are a customer with a special request for a service that we don’t currently offer, give us a call (877-277-4682) or email us (customerservice@frontierlabel.com) a heads up so that we can check out what services and machinery would help us help you.

Big Brothers Big Sisters – Bowling for Kids’ Sake

Bowling for Kids' Sake photo

Usually, when we think of making a difference in our community, bowling doesn’t come to mind. It was a lot of fun, though.

Recently, we had the chance to partner with a local chapter of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, here in Greenville, SC. They held an event to raise money for sponsoring mentoring relationships for children who are at-risk.

They describe their work as: “Big Brothers Big Sisters works to help broaden children’s perspectives and help them learn how to make good choices. “

We think children are awesome, and many of the people who work at Frontier volunteer with non-profit or religious organizations that help care for children in our city. We thought that this organization was worth our time and money (and that bowling sounded pretty fun) so we partnered with them for the event in June of this year.

We were able to help sponsor a mentor pair to give a child in the area a better shot at successfully navigating life and make good decisions along the way.

Not only did we have the chance to support such a great organization, but we also found out that we have a bowling phenom on our team. One of our converters bowled a 220 in the first game after not bowling for almost a year. The rest of us were happy to have broken double digit scores.

We believe our city is worth investing in, whether it is children or families through employment. We also believe that loving our city is important to growing into the kind of company that we want to be.

Lot Number and Expiration Printing on Custom Labels

This is a picture of some candles with labels on them.


Do you need to have additional information on your labels that you won’t know until the last minute?

Often when working with quick turnover products and supplements or nutraceuticals, it can be necessary to add additional information to your product on-the-fly. Information like expiration dates, manufactured dates, or lot numbers are quite common. You may also wish to add text or information about the line or series of product, like the candle maker above.

This particular company chose to put the scent of their candle on the label as the order was being fulfilled. This gives them flexibility in production. They can make the exact scents that are needed without having to worry about which design was previously printed. Shortie’s Candle Company orders one design from us, then completes the labels as needed.

You may need a solution like this for your product. It works well for people who have an irregular stocking pattern for products. It works well for people who have to add vital information at the time of production to meet codes or regulations. These labels can give your product the information puts people’s minds at ease because they know there is a quality control process for the product they have purchased.

We have a laminate that allows for use with a thermal printer, like a Zebra 110xi4. You can use one of the ribbons listed in this document:

Frontier Ribbon P&D Rating Chart

We recommend using resin ribbons, but your results will vary based on the printer type that you use.

If you have any questions, or need help with placing an order, give us a call at 877-277-4682 or click the “Live Chat” link at the bottom of the page.

*We have no affiliation with Zebra brand printers, we only link to them because the ribbons were tested on a past model of their equipment.

Supplement Fulfillment Labels

The quicker you can ship an order of nutraceuticals, the quicker you can fulfill your customers’ needs.

As a provider of fast turnaround custom labels and stickers, we would love to help your company get orders out the door quicker than you thought possible.

We have experience working with multiple fulfillment companies and understand that time is of the essence. Our standard turnaround time is approximately 3 business days, with an option to expedite (removing 2 business days from the total turnaround time).

We have many sizes in stock that work perfectly with supplement, natural product and pharmaceutical containers. Our 2.25” x 6” die is great for many sizes of solid packaging options. Below is an image of our 2.75” x 7” label size on Holographic Plastic with a Gloss finish. You can order this size by clicking the “Quote and Order” button at the end of this post.This is an image of 2 bottles of supplements with hologram labels.

Our high quality digital press allows you to produce custom labels that have photographic elements and fine text for instructions, warnings or ingredients. The resolution is up to 800dpi, allowing for great detail and crisp text.

We would love to help you with any fulfillment needs you have. You can go to our contact page and request a sample pack to see what kind of quality and options we have.

Make Your Event Special with Custom Stickers

This is a picture of custom event stickers.

Have you ever been to an event that has great food, pleasant music and nice decor, but lacks people interacting? All the elements are there, but there is no social chemistry because most of the people present are not acquainted yet. There is nothing out of the ordinary to spark conversation or intrigue people.

Don’t let that be your event.

For very little money per person, you can elevate your event with custom stickers to engage people and get the conversation flowing. They can connect people who may not normally run in the same circles.

We have many different sizes and shapes to get a truly unique look and feel for your special event. You can browse through our custom shapes to find just the right sticker to help people and give them a pleasing experience.

Here is a fun heart shape that we used at an event to help connect people who are make hand-crafted goods and love what they do. To help them get acquainted on a slightly deeper level, we asked people to share what they are passionate about in life, not just their name.


This is a picture of heart shaped custom stickers.

These particular stickers were individually cut to make it easier to pass out or leave on tables with pens or markers for people to fill in and decorate.

We think these are really fun and saw a pretty good reaction to them as conversation deepeners.

If you would like to take your event to the next level, consider using a custom sticker to help make the ordinary more fun and inviting.

We would love to help you with any projects or events you may have to elevate the experience by surprising and delighting the participants with some special details like custom event stickers. We can help with designing, checking print readiness and any problems you may encounter in the printing process.

That Iconic (Oval) Bumper Sticker

As summer comes to a close, some of us are squeezing in our last road trips. While flying down the highway—maybe playing the alphabet game—have you noticed just how many black and white ovals are on the back of cars? These bumper stickers seem to be the most common variety, perhaps because they are so versatile. The original black and white stickers were designed in the 1940s by the United Nations and were used to distinguish international traffic in Europe. These days though, you’ll see an oval for everything from beach resorts to breweries. As you can imagine, we’ve printed a lot of these little ovals for customers. Below, I will go over the basics of how to create your own version of this iconic sticker.

Step One: Size
—Visit FrontierLabel.com/pricing for a list of the sticker sizes we have available. Use the drop down menu to sort for just ovals. The size oval you choose will depend on your project. For my bumper sticker, I chose the 3” x 2” oval.

—Bleed and safe zone are important in any label you print with us, but especially when it comes to this design. In order to achieve the exact look of the traditional oval you want a black border evenly spaced around your text. The way to achieve that is by measuring for bleed and safe zones. To find the overall size of your file add 0.125 to each dimension (this added area is called bleed zone)—use these dimensions to create a new document. For my label, this gives me 3.125” x 2.125”
—Now you are ready to find your safe zone. All of your text and borders will need to stay inside this safe zone or else you run the risk of your design being trimmed off when it runs through our cutting machine. To find safe zone, simply subtract 0.125 from your final label size. So for me that means 3 inches minus 0.125 inches, etc. My safe zone dimensions will be 2.875” x 1.875”. 

See my color coded example below:
This is a template for creating an oval label with a border

Step Two: Design
Of course you are welcome to use whatever colors and fonts you like in your design. However, to achieve the classic European look, stick to black and white and choose a sans serif typeface, such as Arial or Helvetica. Create a white background and center your text within the background. The final step is adding the border. Just be sure your oval border is the same size as the safe zone you calculated earlier. If your oval is a different ratio, the border edges of your oval will not be even. See the example below for the difference:
Two different custom labels with borders.

Step Three: Material
If you are truly using this sticker as a bumper sticker, you want a material that will stand up to weather and sun. Our most durable material is vinyl, so choose white vinyl for your oval sticker. It would also be a good idea to choose our UV resistant laminate. This will help your sticker last longer and keep the colors from fading or cracking too quickly.

Here are a few examples of classic oval bumper stickers we printed for our customers just this week. One is for a brewery and the others mark the distances of a bike trek to benefit those with MS.
Three Heads Brewing Decal
This is a stack of custom labels.

Whether your goal is to create a classic bumper sticker or stylish swag for your favorite gear, this little oval is a simple way to make a bold, clean statement about your organization. Feel free to reach out with any questions you have about this project or any others you see on our blog. You’ll find us at FrontierLabel.com or (877) 277-4682. Happy trails!
