Care and Content Labels

Every Avery Dennison RBIS label features complex variable data including:

  • international sizing,
  • multilingual care instructions,
  • country of origin information, and
  • product codes

to help communicate important information to the consumer in a visually appealing way. 

Information can be printed, fabric, or woven, and labels are designed to meet both industry regulations and RSL standards. Plus, they are managed through our global Compliance Solutions so you never have to worry about consistency or integrity.

Global Care Labels

Meet the local requirements of each selling market with our Global Care Label solutions. Our expert team has multilingual care and content data capabilities that make for a hassle-free distribution process.

Why shoebox labels?
Avery Dennison Shoebox Labels clearly present critical SKU information, such as size, style and color, with barcodes that comply with all relevant standards. They are also essential to guiding consumers in quickly identifying footwear products, especially where:

  • A self-service retail model is in place: they promote ease of shopping by helping the consumer identify exactly the right product
  • Shoes are stored in a back room: shoebox labels enable store associates to find shoes quickly and minimize wait time for shoppers
