About Us

PURE Labels™ is the world's leading sustainable adhesive label company since 2008.

Every label product we manufacture and print is #1 in its sustainable category. We're the first and only company providing 100% Eco Friendly Adhesive Label Stickers.

Choose from 100% Recycled, 100% Recycle-Compatible, 100% Natural, or 100% Compostable. If you are serious about sustainable packaging, is your trusted resource with expertise you can count on.




We have a variety of eco-friendly options to choose from:samples.jpg

Recycle-Friendly is the preferred choice in situations where the label is expected to be recycled along with other paper-based packaging - meaning the label on a paper packaging can be simply recycled together without contaminating the recycled paper, as the adhesives have been engineered to separate from the pulp being recycled.

Compostable labels are an excellent choice when you are putting a label on compostable packaging - this way the entire packaging, along with label, can be composted.
Many people simply enjoy our recycle-friendly and compostable labels, since they are made with a tree-free natural sugar cane paper and they look natural and beautiful.
100% Recycled Labels are white, instead of the natural color of our Recycle-Friendly and Compostable options, they are a great choice when you would like to have confidence that the material is made by re-using waste instead of new virgin materials. They are not recyclable due to the adhesives used (we're working on it!) but the source raw material for the label facestock comes from 100% recycled PCW materials.

Eco-Friendly Printing

For short print runs, digital printing is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly printing technology which allows us to minimize waste. Hewlett-Packard’s Indigo printers are world leading in eco-friendly digital printing.

Larger runs will be printed using Web, Lithographic, or Flexographic printing processes.
