The Broadest Label and Tag Offering, Rigorously Quality Tested, Ready for Your Application

Not every label is created equal. There are thousands of different label and tag materials available – each with their own set of features that affect durability and printer performance. To ensure your labels match your needs, our material sciences experts have pre-tested, selected and certified the highest-performing label and tag materials to assure durable print and minimal printer wear and tear, while also considering your budget and application.

  • Extensive Pre-Testing

    When we say we test our labels, we mean it. Our supplies go through rigorous testing across a wide range of printers, print speeds and darkness settings to ensure print quality and durability. We also test them in harsh conditions using specialised equipment to rate durability to outdoor elements, abrasion, harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures to provide only the toughest labels guaranteed to fit your purpose—and go the distance.

  • Every Type of Label

    With more than 400 stocked ZipShip paper and synthetic labels and tags – all ready to ship within 24 hours – Zebra has the right label and tag on hand for your application. From synthetic materials to basic paper solutions, custom to compliance requirements, hard-to-label surfaces to easy-to-remove labels, or tamper-evident to tear-proof, we have more than 90 material options to meet your unique needs.

  • Unmatched Quality

    Other manufacturers swap out materials to increase their profits – leaving you high and dry when your labels don’t perform like they used to. Instead of substituting materials, Zebra utilises an ISO 9001 certified, 23-point quality inspection to ensure consistent quality. And, we only use thermal-compatible inks and varnishes to safeguard printer performance.
