According to the American Pie Council, apple is America’s most popular pie, though people also love to eat pumpkin, chocolate cream, cherry, blueberry, pecan, lemon, peach, strawberry rhubarb, key lime, and other delicious pies. They are trying out new flavors as well, such as sweet potato and chicken, but these pies are not nearly as popular as the traditional ones.
Custom pie labels are a great way to decorate and add information to your pie packaging. They are very useful and in many cases required by law. If you are in the business of making and selling pies, you need a pie label that contains nutritional information about your product, as well as information about you as the manufacturer. This is where you have a chance to be both informative and creative, and use this seemingly small item to represent your brand and attract customers.
The Food Packaging Label Pros are great at learning what makes a small business unique and creating adequate pie or any other type of labels for food packaging. First, it’s important to determine whether your product will be sold fresh or frozen. Frozen baked product labels will not be made from the same type of label stock and adhesive as fresh pie labels, because they need to be made from durable, freezer grade materials that can withstand cold temperatures and condensation. With fresh pie labels it is important to establish the type of substrate these labels will adhere to (paper, plastic, etc.) and choose the type of adhesive accordingly. It is very important to let experts advise you, because the material that makes up a label can play a decisive role in your presentation to consumers. Poor choice of label stock and adhesive can lead to labels peeling off, smudging, negatively affecting your product’s appearance and turning the customers away.
Blank Labels for Homemade Pies
Pie stickers are also useful to homemade pie makers. They’ll nicely fit on a pie that you want to give someone as a gift, or on leftover pieces after a get-together when you make larger amounts of pie. You can apply personalized pie labels to individually wrapped pieces of pie and distribute to guests. Use any piece of self-adhesive paper to label the pies, or order from the Food Packaging Labels wide selection of professionally printed blank pie labels to make sure they don’t peel off or get torn.
