3 important things you need on your product labels.
Product labels are a vital piece of your product. They contain much more information than just the name of the product and its brand, including ingredients, directions for use, and more. This can be confusing to a consumer who might have never used it before or even seen this type of label before! To help you get your product on the shelves and into homes, here are 3 important things you need on your product labels.
Branding is one of those buzzy words that gets tossed around a lot by marketers and designers alike. But what does it actually mean?
Branding is what makes a product stand out in a crowded market, whether it’s with a clever name or an eye-catching design. It’s what makes you choose one brand over another when you’re shopping online or walk right past the generic brand on the shelf to pick up your favourite variation instead.
In short: Branding makes people want your product because they know exactly who it is—and they like it!
This is the list of all ingredients in your product. It’s usually listed in order of greatest to least, so you should start with the biggest ingredient and end with the smallest. Ingredients should be listed using their common or chemical name, not a fanciful name that might make them sound like something more appealing than what they actually are.
Ingredients should also be listed in descending order of weight—meaning if one ingredient is present at twice as much as another, it will appear higher on the list than its counterpart. If there are any allergens or other things that might cause reactions in consumers (like nuts or gluten), they should be highlighted so people know what to look out for and steer clear of if needed.
Finally, please make sure that your ingredients match up with those printed on your product itself! This means checking every label before shipping out an entire batch of products; otherwise, you could end up wasting money by making lots more labels than necessary because some were mislabelled incorrectly due to human error during production stages that require careful attention from skilled workers who do this kind of thing all day long instead.
Directions for use
You should include instructions for use on your product labels. Instructions for use are a legal requirement, and they’re important because they provide instructions to consumers about how to use the product safely. The directions for use section of your label will contain several elements:
- Warnings and precautions
- Any other relevant information
These items are vital to communicate to your consumer.
The product label is the first thing your customer sees, so it’s important to use it to build a connection with them. You can also use this space to mention any certifications or awards your company has won, which will let your customers know that you’re in good standing as a business and help build trust in your brand.
Ingredients List. This list should include everything that went into creating the product itself: ingredients, preservatives, artificial flavours, etc. It’s important for consumers to know what they’re putting into their bodies when consuming something new—and if they have allergies or sensitivities toward specific things like dairy products or gluten-containing foods then this information can be especially vital in determining whether or not they’ll be able to enjoy using a particular product without adverse effects.
So there you have 3 important things you need on your product labels. It’s never too late to improve your labels, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. A little extra time and effort can go a long way towards making sure that your product is well-represented on the shelf or in the hands of potential customers.
