First seen used for promotional offers and prize labelling, peel and reveal labels are now predominantly used in industries with heavy legislation around labelling such as chemical and food.

What is a peel and reveal label? Also known as multi page labels, piggy back labels, peel back labels and peel and read labels. You’re likely to find examples of these labels on items such as perfumes, chemical and vape liquid bottles. They are used to fit a lot of information on a product without ruining the ascetic of the product or compromising how much information you can fit onto the label. The face of the label can remain eye catching and true to brand, and when this layer is peeled back under printed detailed information about the product, ingredients and required warnings can be found and rehidden.

Popular uses of peel and reveal labels:

·         E-cigarette liquid bottle labels

·         Pharmaceutical and medicinal product labels

·         Food packaging labels

·         Beverage labelling, such as beer cans and bottles

·         Promotional packaging

·         Chemical large copy packaging and product labelling

·         Multi language use and warnings

·         Hidden competition codes or unique security coding
