Cold Activated Labels – Heat Activated Labels

Our temperature activated labels are manufactured and printed to order in quantities of 500 to 500,000 or more. They are printed using inks that automatically react to heat or cold within a pre-determined temperature range.

One popular use for cold activated labels is on beer or soft drink bottles. All or part of the label message remains invisible until the bottle has been refrigerated. When cold enough, a message such as “Icy Cold” or similar is then revealed. The label message both before and after refrigeration depends on your label design.

Temperature activated labels can also offer a safety feature for your product e.g. an electrical appliance or baby product – a temperature sensitive label can show at a glance whether the product is hot or cold without needing to touch it first.
