Make your products safer with quality hazardous warning labels
Business owners always want to protect their customers and keep them coming back. Unfortunately, some items a customer may use on a daily basis can carry some type of risk. To protect themselves and their customers, businesses often need to use caution or warning labels.
These safety sticker labels help remind the customer not to do certain things while using the product. For instance a warning label on a hair dryer may say, “Risk of electric shock – Do not leave plugged in or near water.” You definitely want your warning labels to stand out to avoid dangerous situations.
4 Tips for Creating an Effective Warning Label:
1. Make it big!
A warning label or safety sticker should be large, but not too large. The label should be big enough to be seen but should not steal the entire item. The warning label should only take up about a tenth of the total size of a product and even smaller if the product is large.
2. Make it bold!
Warning labels on products need to be noticeable, thus the writing should be bold. It should also be a legible font. The reader, in this case the customer, should be able to read it easily. The print should be large enough to be read as well.
3. Make it Bright!
This can’t be emphasised enough. The background colour of the product warning label should be bright. Remember the objective here is to always catch the eye of the customer. Use fluorescent colours such as yellow or red for your warning label stock.
4. Make it Bilingual.
Your hazard warning label will be written in English but because this information is so important, another language may be appropriate too. If someone doesn’t read English then they could easily get hurt putting that same hair dryer plugged in a sink full of water to clean it off. The best way to find out whether the label should use a second language is research. Find out what language is spoken and read throughout the areas in which the product is sold.
