These profiles are used extensively in the Point of Sale industry, but have wider uses within Warehousing and other environments where barcode or information scanning is required. Label Holder is the most common description, but they are also known as Ticket Strips, Data Strips, Price Holders, EPOS Strips, Shelf Strips, Shelf Edge Strips, Shelf Label Holders, Shelf Price Holders, Plastic Label Holders, Warehouse Label Holders and many other similar descriptions.
Full descriptions of TP Extrusions Label Holder tooling are available via the links below on this page.
Please note that we do not stock any of these profiles, they are all made to order, and production runs are subject to minimum order quantities. The tooling is listed in order of Ticket/Label size, and the actual dimensions of the profile are therefore larger - drawings are provided for many of the sections to illustrate this.
Label Holders can be attached to the shelf or surface in several ways:
Self adhesive double sided tape is easy to apply during extrusion of the plastic label holders, is relatively inexpensive, available in many different widths, and can be clear (Polyester Tape) for good adhesion with transparent label holders, or thicker (Foam Tape) for excellent adhesion in any environment.
Many of the ticket strips detailed on the attached pages are designed to clip, stick or fasten onto specific shelving systems, and have the necessary legs or C clips designed into the extrusion. Where legs are used, they can have nubs and spars to fit over shelf edges, or have legs that pinch and grip. For fixing onto rails, baskets or round locators, C clips are often used, enabling the label holder to snap-on.
Similar to the double sided tape, magnetic strips can be applied to the ticket strips during the extrusion process, using adhesive. They are then easy to affix to warehouse racking or metal shelving in general, and can be relocated whenever required.
Label Holders are broadly divided into two types:
These are the simpler C section design, where the label or ticket is exposed. Because of this, the material need not be clear, is less visible and is therefore more suitable for rigid PVC. Colours can be suited to the application, e.g. dark green label holders for Garden Centres.
More commonly called EPOS Strips, because of their general usage in Point of Sale locations, these are usually extruded in a thin clear rigid plastic (PVC or PETG) which allow the label to be inserted behind the cover and still be fully visible and scanned.
Based on the simple C section design, with a flat rectangular shape and lips at the front which retain the label. Ticket sizes accommodated range from 8mm to 146mm. There are many tools for the basic Ticket or Data Strip, and many for variations with clips and legs. Click through for flat open Label Holder details.
Similar to the basic C section design, with retaining lips and an open face, but the curves and angles provide a different viewing perspective for the inserted label. Ticket sizes from 22mm to 146mm detailed. Many variants with clips and legs. Click through for curved open Label Holder details.
Flat Point Of Sale type label holders, extruded in clear plastic with a retaining flap. Suitable for pricing or barcode tickets that require scanning, dimensions from 8mm to 96mm. Many of the tools detailed are designed for specific shelving systems and have suitable legs and clips. Click through for flat EPOS Label Holder details.
Curved Point Of Sale type ticket strips, extruded in clear plastic with a retaining flap. Suitable for price or barcoded labels that can be scanned in situ, label sizes 20mm to 75mm. Many of the tools detailed are designed for specific shelving systems and have suitable legs and clips. Click through for curved EPOS Label Holder details.
Point Of Sale Label Holders that are extruded in 2 parts. The bottom section clips on or is stuck on, and may or may not have its own incorporated label holder. A separate flat EPOS strip is inserted into the base, standing vertically and allowing viewing of both sides of the ticket. Tooling available for 15mm to 43mm labels.
