We have our own in-house label manufacturing department and we can use a wide range of raw materials from prestigious suppliers to produce your labels. We are proud to allow complete freedom in the label manufacturing, no matter what your demands are.

Made in Portugal

Our own Label Production More than 90% of our label production is made internally at our facilities. Cut and printed by our press operators, in our machines, we contribute for the local economy. We use the best flexographic presses and slitter-rewinder machines to produce your labels.

High-Quality Raw Materials

In order to always maintain the same high-quality, we only work with the best world-class suppliers for self-adhesive materials. The adhesives are controlled to always meet the adhesion specifications and are separated from the frontal part of the label by a protective layer to prevent the passage and absorption of the glue by paper which would cause an early yellowing of the label. Before and after being produced, the rolls are always stored at the best environmental conditions when it comes to temperature, humidity and luminosity, so that you will not experience any kind of adhesion problems after applying your labels.

Fully Customizable

Select the kind of label frontal material (type of paper or film), pick the adhesive, choose the label dimension and format, specify the internal roll core (cardboard tube) diameter, tell us the number of labels you want per roll (or better yet, the model of your printer or the maximum external diameter of the roll and we calculate the quantity of labels per roll for you) and inform us if you want a blank label or a printed one. You have total freedom. We can deliver the labels in rolls or in fan fold (zig-zag) packs.

Label Frontal

Paper Labels

Paper Labels The frontal of your label may be simple paper, but there are many kinds and finishes available. Among others, we highlight:

Polymer and Film Labels

Special Material Labels Who said label's fronts are always made of paper? You can choose from many special materials to get a more high-quality look and/or to obtain more resistant labels. Among other materials, we highlight:

Label Adhesive

Different Adhesives for Any Surface

Label Adhesive The frontal material of the label is already of great importance to withstand the conditions that your product will face in its life cycle, but the adhesive has an even more vital role. Selecting the right type of adhesive is fundamental to ensure that the label will not peel off and fall off the product some point in time after it is applied or even to prevent that the glue will harm the product, for instance, when removed from a book cover. Among others, we highlight:

Special Security Label Adhesives (Void or Stop)

Special Security Label Adhesives If peeled off from a product, they will leave glue behind with the word VOID or STOP and the label front will be irreparably damaged with that same word or signal in negative. They are perfect to seal your products and offer the warranty that such product was not opened or violated before. You can print text in the label frontal, generally sentences like "Warranty void if the label is removed or damage".

RFID Smart Labels

RFID Labels Labels that have a built-in RFID chip. You can store any kind of information on the RFID chip of your labels. Later, you can read back such data automatically when the label passes through certain reading checkpoints. You can write information on the chip with a RFID thermal-transfer printer. There are several classes of RFID antennas that you can chose from.

Label Sizes and Roll Specifications

We give you complete freedom when choosing the specifications for your labels, so that they are compatible with any printer or labeling systems and suitable to your specific product in particular.

Rectangular Labels with Round Corners

Tell us the desired label width and height and that's it. You can go even further and indicate the radius of the label corner's curvature. For a more economic price, you can choose dimensions for which we already have cutting tools. We have hundreds of rotary dies to cut the labels and, if we don't have the exact sizes, we can suggest the closest dimension possible for you or we can simply make a new tool with the exact format you need.

Circular or Oval Labels and other Irregular Forms

You do not have to restrict yourself to use rectangular labels. Circular, oval, triangular, star or cloud shaped labels or with any kind of irregular form you require, the labels will fit like a glove on your products.

Continuous Stock

We also do continuous rolls of any length. Like this, you can set variable label heights at print time, given that usually these rolls are used by customers with printers with a cutter installed. But some people simply use scissors to cut the labels. As option, we can add a little margin with a half-cut, so that you can easily peel of the label material from the liner.

Roll Cores with Different Diameters to Fit in Your Printer

Label Format and Roll Core You can choose the internal diameter (D) of the cardboard tube, to match the size your printer spindle accepts. The normal standard size is 76mm, but many compact printers require 25mm cores. Some manual labeling applicators require a 40mm diameter tube.

Number of Lanes (side-by-side labels)

If you are going to use the label roll in an automatic labeler applicator, the roll must have only one lane. If you are going to apply the labels manually, the number of lanes will not make much difference, but, when your use your rolls in a printer and the width (L) of your labels is small, it is recommended to distribute the labels in 2 or more lanes, depending on your printer's print width. With two side-by-side labels, not only you double the print speed (two labels printed simultaneous), but also, you extend the lifespan of the printhead to twice the label output, as you distribute the wear along all the printhead. And if you use 3 lanes, then the gains are tripled, so the more, the better. And it is extremely easy to set up the number of lanes in our labeling software, the Legitronic® software. All you need to do is specify how many lanes the roll has and the space between lanes, and it is ready to go. And if you have counters and variables, you can modify a setting to indicate if the serialization is to be done horizontally or not, that is, if the lanes are to be exact copies of each other. It is very simple.

Perforated Liner Between Labels for Easy Tear

We can make cutting tools to perforate the label liner in between each single label or each label group. The small perforations help cutting the liner by hand and also allows to make fanfold (zig-zag) packs.

Quantity of Labels per Roll

It is your choice. If you tell us which printer model you have, we can make the roll with the maximum labels possible so that the external diameter of the roll does not exceed the dimension that your printer accepts. Like this, you avoid constant stops to change the label roll.


How do you like your labels? Blank, with a background color, printed with constant or variable data? No problem at all.

Blank Labels (No Print)

Etiquetas Brancas Labels that are delivered in the original color of the material, usually white. Normally, the customer will use their own printers to write the information on the label, and these labels are usually for pallets or card boxes.

Choose the Background Color

Custom Background Color Labels We paint a background color on the label, using inks that are suitable for thermal-transfer printing. Normally, the customer will use their own printers to write the information on the label, but as they look more attractive, they can already be applied onto the final product.

Labels with High-Quality Flexographic Prints

It is important to draw attention to your product and the label can make all the difference. Send us the drawings that you want printed on your label and we will use the best flexographic techniques to produce quality results. Optionally, we can put a varnish layer to give a glossy look, for a very attractive and spotless look, not to mention the increase in the resistance of the label.

Pre-Printed Flexographic Labels (Partial)

Pre-Printed Labels Similar to the previous method, but there will be a free area for you to print variable data with your printer at a later time. In the case of varnish covering, a special tailored print stereoplate is made in a way that a varnish window is left opened in the area where the data will be printed (varnish reserve), so that the text can easily adhere to the label.

Digital Printing with Constant or Variable Data

Digital Printing in our own Printers For small order quantities that do not justify the costs for the creation of stereoplates, and/or it is necessary to print variable data and the customer does not own a label printer, we can do the job for you in our own thermal-transfer printers. Counters, batches, expiration and production dates or other variable information (you need to send us your database or spreadsheet), we will print exactly what you need. The print is digital and generally made in one color (color of the print ribbon) but we can combine the previous methods to do, for example, a label with a background color or the company logo in color plus the variable data.
