A label (as distinct from signage) is a piece of paper, polymer, cloth, metal, or other material affixed to a container or product, on which is written or printed information about the product. Information printed directly on a container or article can also be considered labeling. Labels have many uses including providing information on a product’s origin, use, shelf-life and disposal, some or all of which may be governed by legislation such as that for food in the UK. Methods of production and attachment to packaging are many and various and may also be subject to internationally recognised standards.
