Vape label regulations – Infographic

Our new vape label regulations infographic explains how you can get your e-liquid labelling correct as well as complying with the laws on TPD & CLP tobacco regulations. It gives you a flavour of what compliant vape bottle labelling looks like – so that you can be confident that your products are legal.  We also offer friendly advice on our online chat, email or telephone, so don’t be afraid to get in touch.

You can also download an official guide to vape label regulations in the form of a white paper which is free.

At CS Labels we noticed after a period of research that over 90% of the label artwork that we see does not work within the regulations on TPD & CLP.

We have been successful in the past few months in raising awareness of the importance of the right labelling, as well as highlighting how you can still have a great looking brand to encourage sales with a compliant yet attractive label, pouch or box.

We hope you enjoy the infographic. It’s best to also download the white paper to accompany the graphic as it is only a visual guide. Also the regulations may change, so it’s great to keep abreast of what is current. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email us.

The ejuice on Regulations for E-Liquids – Printed Labels

Be Abreast of the Regulations for E-Liquids!

E-cigarette liquids are classed as chemicals. New health laws and the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) means that manufacturers of e-cig juice / electronic cigarette liquid must include extra product information on their labels. The e-cig labels regulations include the need to display health warnings and more, and may well involve a tactile warning triangle (a raised area). Failure to comply with the regulations for e-liquids can be a serious offence.

As e-cig packaging is so small, this can be a real challenge for manufacturers. However as always, at CS Labels we have the perfect solution!

Let’s look at the main requirements:

Each unit packet and any container pack must include a list of all set out in descending order by weight, nicotine content, delivery per dose, batch number, keep out of reach of children warning. Also manufacturers must print a health warning “This product contains nicotine which is a highly addictive substance” on both the front and back of the unit packet and any container pack. This must fill 30% of the area, calculated in relation to the area of the surface concerned when the pack is closed and must be in black Helvetica bold type on a white background. The font size must ensure that the text covers the greatest possible are of the surface area reserved for it and should be at the centre of that area.

How can digital labelling help with e-cigarette printed labels?

At CS we can help you redesign your label artwork to comply with the regulations for e-liquids, whilst also maintaining the brand equity that your product has.

  • Digital labelling technology means there are no printing plates so any artwork changes, for now and both in the future, are quick and simple.
  • Our presses are also geared up to offer multiple sorts, even on the same print run, and this can also be the same label print run multiple label sizes using a clever method called varilane.
