JK Labels is a leading market name in thermal labels, label manufacturing /sticker printing in India. We are popularly known for self adhesive label printing and are accredited label suppliers /sticker manufacturers based in Mumbai.

Thermal Labels are available in two types

The use of thermal ribbons in printers for labels, creates a requirement for thermal label transfers. This method of printing uses heat to transfer the print on to a label from the ribbon, finally producing an image that becomes the label. The sorts of ribbons used in this process of printing labels, include wax resin ribbons, wax thermal ribbons or resin thermal ribbons. There are technologies available under which no thermal ribbon is required for carrying out the label printing process.

In this process, a clear film is applied to the label material, giving it a polished appearance. Lamination is mostly done to protect the label, and the label is rendered moisture-resistant and practically tear-proof, thus increasing the life of the label. Lamination also enhances the label's visual appeal.


Varnishing refers to the process of applying a heat-cured clear coating of transparent ink on the surface of a label for protection and for giving it lustrous look.

The labels with a varnishing enhancement protect the material and the printing from abrasion, sunlight, chemicals and moisture.

Serial Numbering

Labeling with unique serial numbers is required in various industries, such as retail and logistics, as well as for several purposes, such as identifying spare parts and individual units of goods and products.

Hot / Cold foil

This is a special image-producing method in which a thin foil with the label design is transferred on to the required surface.

This results in an eye-catching product, because of the metallic sheen of the foils. Popular foils used are gold and metallic, but several colours and finishes are available at JK Labels. Hot/Cold foil can be done on any surface, and is the perfect enhancement if you want your product to appear exquisite. JK Labels lets you choose what you want to include in the hot stamp- logo, text or design.


Embossing is a condition where an image is pressed onto a material to create an image that is raised above the level of the material.

Embossing is not only a cost-effective option, especially for low volumes, but also adds a dash of class to your product. It is also easy to detect any tampering of embossed labels, thus discouraging counterfeiting. We ensure that our labels are last long, and are available to customers in the shape, pattern, size and colour they require.


Bar coding is a method for easy identification of products or units, using a specific pattern comprising spaces and lines (bars) of varying width. The bar code represents alpha or alphanumeric data in machine readable form. Bar coding makes replication and forgery harder, and is easy to validate. JK Labels provides bar coded labels for a variety of industries.


Holograms have unique optical properties that make them almost impossible to replicate. They can be easily authenticated by customers and users. Our holograms not only will secure your products from counterfeiting and diversion, but they also look stylish, and complement your existing packaging.

Half Tone Effect/Gradient Effect

This is a process in which fine dots are used to create a variation in which the colour seems to fade from the base colour to a lighter-shaded version of a base color.

Screen Printing

This process is usually done to add texture to a label. It gives a very elegant feel to a label. We are one of few label printers in India who are capable of screen printing on labels.

Security/specialty Ink

We provide our customers with a choice of more than 20 security/specialty inks in different colours and print processes and guide them which ink they should use depending on the level of security, brand protection, and attractiveness they are looking for.

Few of the popular security/specialty inks are thermo chronic inks, metallic inks, optically variable inks and photo chromatic inks. span>
