Here is the sample label.
- Maintain 2:3 aspect ratio for the image file
- Label will be 4" wide and 6" tall
- Recommended image size is 1600px X 2400px
NUMBER 1: Net Weight. REQUIRED. This must be on your label. There are several Net Wt sizes available in our private label category. Net Weight can be whatever you plan to do. You can do 8 Oz., 10 Oz., 11 Oz., 12 Oz., 1 LB, 2LB or 5 LB with private label. Net Wt must be on the front of the bag (or box for capsules). If you have a front and back label you can not put the Net Wt on the back. Must not be micro-text. Look at food products in your home as examples. Net Wt is almost always near or at the bottom of product packages, on the front of the package, and in a larger text that is very very easy to read. It is never super tiny text. Net Wt must contain ounces and grams or pounds and ounces and grams when 1 pound or more. Examples: NET WT. 26 OZ (1 LB., 10 OZ.) 737gNET WT. 12 OZ. (340.19g)NET WT. 5 LBS (80 OZ.) 2,268g
NUMBER 2: Distributed by. REQUIRED. This must be on your label. Distributed by tells the consumer where the product originates from. You CAN put your company name above it and show distributed by below it, but the Distributed by line must say the following: Distributed by Temecula Coffee Roasters. Temecula, CA 92590. The reason is must say this is to comply with USA FDA regulations. Leaving this part out would be a violation according to FDA labeling requirements.
NUMBER 3: Ingredients. REQUIRED. This must be on your label. We recommend the following: (in all capital letters) INGREDIENTS: 100% PURE COFFEE (if you choose to have a front and back label this can be on the back label, or the front label, your choice. Must not be micro-text. Can be a small font but must be easily readable.
You cannot add FDA or Fair Trade logos, badges, or any intellectual property to the custom labels. You must be the primary holder of certification to be able to utilize those and cannot be a reseller to utilize them on your products.
