Labels and Recycling

The team at Label & Litho are committed to maintaining a high level of sustainable business practice.

In 2013 we were the proud […]


We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again – We love beer labels! We are very honoured to have been asked by the Curator at the Alexander Turnbull Library to provide copies of our beer labels and wine labels for the Ephemera Collection. ‘Ephemera’ is material published for short term use which includes printed labels, […]


The team at Label & Litho have gone down the rabbit hole, to explore the psychology of design when it comes to wine labels. Since addressing colour, and the different emotions they evoke, we now look at spacing, lines and shapes. There is not a lot of room on your typical wine label, so it’s important […]


Each and every day we are subjected to an array of visual information to digest (consciously or otherwise).

Everything you need to know about printing labels with a pre-inserted RF tag

RFID, or ‘radio frequency identification’ tags are a brilliant product for all kinds of purposes, including helping to prevent shoplifting. RF tags don’t need to be visible – they transmit a radio frequency to a sensor that pick up electromagnetic fields at short ranges, even if they hidden in a label. If you use a snapper card […]

Label & Litho now does keg label printing!

When people think of a label printing company, they might think beer labels, wine labels, food labels, but not many people would instantly think of keg labels!
