A label is a piece of material, paper, cloth, plastic or metal. It is an accessory fixed to an item to give instructions and information about the product it is attached to. The information on the label can be in the form or text (written) or a symbol (sign or image). Labels can be adhesive or non- adhesive backed. Non-adhesive backed labels are used with a carrier or holder. The label is inserted to the label space and is attached to the product by an alternative fixing method (screws, clips magnetic tape). Adhesive backed labels have a thin layer of glue on the reverse of the label. It is then attached directly to the surface of the product to be marked.
