Multipurpose Labels

SORT BY:
Make inventory management and shipping processes easier for your business by choosing multipurpose labels. These general-use tags are the perfect addition to any office supplies list, while also being suitable for a wide range of tasks, including affixing addresses to mail, putting prices and barcodes on goods, and organizing file folders. You can also use them in warehouses, stores, and at home. Staples® carries a wide selection of labels from multiple brands, including shipping labels, return address labels, and more.

Choose From Different Types of Multipurpose Labels
General-use labels come in different shapes and sizes to make them suitable for various applications. For example, most businesses use square or rectangular labels for shipping boxes and round ones for assigning prices to store goods. The size to get depends on the items you wish to label. Manufacturers supply labels in singles, on sheets, and in rolls. While large tags come separately, sheets and rolls usually hold multiple small and medium labels. The printable surface of a multipurpose tag can come in any color. Popular options include white and clear. Choose brightly colored labels if you want them to be visible and readable from a distance. Some tags have clearly marked printable areas while others allow you to print all the way to edges and cover their entire upper surfaces with text, numbers, and graphics.

Consider Printer Compatibility When Shopping for Multipurpose Labels
Make sure to select labels that are compatible with your printer or whatever kind of label maker you use. The most versatile ones work with inkjet and laser printers as well as photocopiers. Note that for some laser labels, you have to print all the blank labels on a sheet at once. For maximum flexibility, look for a brand that lets you print one or as many labels as you want at a time. Labels that use thermal printing need special label printers and require no ink or toner cartridges. There are two types of such labels: those that employ direct thermal and those that require thermal transfer printing processes. Brands that also make label printers often make rolls and sheets specifically for their machines. When getting labels from the same brand that makes your office printer, make sure the labels you want are compatible with the model you have.

What Is the Difference Between Direct Thermal and Thermal Transfer Multipurpose Labels?
Direct thermal labels have specially coated surfaces that react to heat. When heated directly, they turn black to create the image required. Thermal transfer printing requires a ribbon between the label and the heat source. Heat melts the ink in the ribbon which then imprints on the label beneath. This produces sharper and longer-lasting images than direct thermal printing.

Can You Remove Multipurpose Labels After Attaching Them?
This depends on the type of adhesives used for the labels. Permanent labels offer stronger adhesion than temporary ones. You cannot remove tags with permanent adhesive backings without damaging the packaging or the labels themselves. Some permanent labels take minutes or hours to permanently stick to surfaces. You may move and reposition these after applying them. You can easily peel off temporary labels if you want to reuse shipping boxes or price tags.

Do You Need Special Software to Print on Multipurpose Labels?
No. You can design and print labels on your computer using your favorite word processor. Some brands offer templates you can open and edit with Microsoft® Word® while others provide simple design software for customization purposes.
