Wherever you look today, there are labels. There are more labels you could ever imagine. There are those big, large labels that you will sometimes see displayed on the side of your building. And then there are those small labels, so small sometimes that you can barely see them. A lot of the time, these minute labels tend to irritate consumers. There are those cynical consumers who believe that the purveyors of their goods are deliberately trying to pull the wool over their eyes, deliberately concealing information from them.
But that is hardly the case, and on many occasions, the manufacture, print and sticking on of labels of such small size just cannot be helped. In fact, it is quite necessary and in many instances, it has become a state or federal requirement. The logistics of small packages cannot really be helped. But even so, it is quite admirable. It is impressive to see just how much information on a particular product can be crammed into one small space. That takes quite a bit of skill. It is fascinating, and those of you with any interest in the manufacture of custom labels can read about it on blogs put together by graphic design and printing exponents.
They will go through the process with you in a step by step fashion. You could also step wide of the designers and printers and learn a little from the copywriters and editors who skillfully manage to place as much relevant and important product information in such a limited space. While graphic designers have the ease of software tools to work with, the creative processes required of copy workers still requires some considerable mental input. Like taking two pages of 1000 words long and highlighting it all in a space that only has room for 150 words.
