Wraparound labels

Wraparound vinyl labels (also known as cable wraps, cable labels or cable markers) are perfect for the easy identification of cables and wires. They are available in customised sizes and colours to suit virtually any cable or bundle diameter and can be printed or unprinted.

Wraparound self-laminating cable labels are designed to wrap around the cable, laminating themselves as they are applied to create a durable, easy-to read cable label. They consist of a markable area suitable for printed or handwritten instruction and clear vinyl to over-laminate the marking once applied.  They can be used to label or colour code in many and varied applications including computer cabling to identify cable function or distinguish different cable types, or in manufacturing to identify wire, terminals or electrical ratings.  They are ideal where space for information on an appliance is limited and can be supplied in a full range of colours, pre-printed to your custom requirements or plain for handwritten marking

Free Artwork Service

As part of the fully comprehensive print process, we offer a free artwork service for both thermal and hot foil printing. This involves, advising on print suitability, resizing to fit final fitted size and re-ordering information supplied in spreadsheet format according to the sequence of installation or into kits.

To ensure superior print results, it stands to reason that artwork needs to be best quality and this is why we advise on whether artwork is suitable for purpose in terms of fine detail and ornate graphics which may not successfully transfer to smaller sleeves and markers, or where a high shrink rate is required. Furthermore, as heatshrinkable products do not shrink in a uniform manner (transverse and longitudinal shrink ratios differ widely) we resize artwork so that there is a strict correlation between original and final fitted dimensions.

We accept many formats for artwork including, but not limited to, tiff, eps, bmp, jpg, gif and PDF. For jpeg, save your image using the best quality. We use a single colour print system. This means the sleeving and print can be different colours, but the print itself can only be one colour. For best results send your image in black and white with what you would like printed in black. We can then take the image and print it on your selected sleeving in the correct print colour.

We also print from spreadsheets, CSV or text files, .lists or drawings. Where required, we can sort, print and pack according to the sequence of installation.
