Given that this type of label does not need the application of adhesive on every individual label before applying it on the bottle, you save a lot of time. 

The self-adhesive label requires one to simply peel it from its protective backing and apply the label on the bottle. 

There is no wasting time (and energy) in applying the adhesive on the paper. 

Additionally, they are fast and easy to apply. The application process does not involve a lot of complex processes. 

This bodes well for manual and automatic bottle labelling.

Considering the fact that self-adhesive labels eliminate the need for applying adhesive on every label, you reduce the time needed to conduct labelling and the energy used up in the process. 

Consequently, this makes labelling of bottled products much easier and faster. The net result of all of this an improvement in productivity performance.


3. They Are Durable

Self-Adhesive labels, especially when optimised for use in glass bottles are long-lasting, more so than the vast majority of other labels. 

They do not rip or detach easily. 

Their long-lasting and high durability characteristics are perfectly suited to ensuring that the labels applied to bottles can last a long time without having to worry about losing your branding or ingredients and instructions.


4. They Are Cost-Effective

Self-adhesive labels come with just the right amount of adhesive to get the label to stick on the glass. 

This is unlike other labels that you have to apply the adhesive to, thereby resulting in the wastage of adhesive.

Moreover, the label itself is precisely cut to reduce wastage of materials. 

The combination of these two considerations makes for a very cost-effective bottle labelling experience.

Another cost-saving consideration is the ease of transportation of these labels. 

They come in rolls or sheets, depending on your particular application. Rolls and sheets are compact form-factors. 

As such, they do not necessitate bulk transportation which is yet another cost-saving.
