HERMA Introduces Waterproof and Transparent Address Labels for Ecological Shipping

Published on 2014-07-31. Author : SpecialChem

To facilitate quick and convenient shipping, HERMA offers commercial and private users one of the most extensive ranges of address labels, as well as self-adhesive shipping labels/notes and delivery notes/receipts. The address labels are available in a wide range of variants, including waterproof and dirt-repellent, permanent or removable, and opaque or transparent, and in numerous formats. An added benefit is the option for users to print the labels quickly and easily, typically with HERMA's free online LabelAssistant – interactively on the internet and, thanks to the batch printing function, even in large numbers.

Waterproof and transparent address labels

Made from tough film, HERMA's waterproof address labels are dirt-repellent, temperature-resistant and tear-proof. They stick reliably to all packaging materials made from paper, such as envelopes, parcels and shipping tubes, and other packaging products made from film, PE or Tyvek. A special coating ensures excellent toner fixing, so that the printed labels remain legible even after exposure to rain. The transparent address labels are likewise waterproof and dirt-repellent. They are ideal for upmarket mail shots and advertising, as well as colored backgrounds and in all situations where a white label would look out of place. The inscription on the label appears to have been printed directly onto the item.

Labels for ecological shipping

For users who attach importance to ecological shipping practices, HERMA offers address labels bearing the Blue Angel eco-certificate that are made entirely from recycled paper, as well as removable address labels. Once they have been attached to the shipping item and after serving their purpose, removable labels can be peeled off without leaving any residue or damaging the underlying surface. The packaging material can therefore be re-used. The labels themselves are fully recyclable as waste paper.

All HERMA address labels are available in various sizes and together encompass the full range of envelope formats as well as parcels and small packets. They are supplied in 10, 25 and 100-sheet packs. The labels can be processed by all conventional laser printers and copiers, and many are also compatible with inkjet printers. All of HERMA's address labels are regularly tested in combination with the leading manufacturers' machines.

Labels with delivery receipt

For shippers that engage the services of logistics providers, such as DHL, Hermes and others, HERMA also offers delivery receipts alongside its address labels. Given that the address label, delivery note, invoice and shipping note can all be produced together in a single printing operation, HERMA thus contributes to enormous time savings. A micro-perforation makes it easy to detach the delivery receipt. Finally, labels are available for individually worded shipping notes or instructions to ensure that the goods will arrive without being damaged. Highly visible bright red (for black text) or white (for colored text), they certainly attract attention.


Located in Filderstadt near Stuttgart (Germany), HERMA GmbH is a leading European specialist in self-adhesive technology. In the 2013 fiscal year, the HERMA Group generated sales of €261.2 million with 850 employees in its three divisions – Self-adhesive Materials, Labels and Labelling Machines. The export ratio was more than 55 %.
