"Product labels are an effective way for brands to show prospects they care and express their empathy for victims and their families."
Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and custom labels are perfect for showing customers that a company cares about the cause. Lightning Labels, a custom label and sticker printing company, can produce custom labels that allow businesses to express moral support for breast cancer victims.
Breast cancer affects many Americans, with one in eight women in the United States expected to develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Outside of skin cancer, breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer, accounting for just under 30 percent of cases diagnosed. Breast cancer death rates are also higher for U.S. women than any other type of cancer besides lung cancer, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Breast cancer can be a traumatizing experience, both for the women who directly suffer from it as well as their families. Although most people have heard of breast cancer, there is no denying that greater awareness may help remind women to take the necessary steps to detect the disease in early stages when it can be addressed before it becomes fatal.
"Breast cancer has affected many people in one way or another," said Scott Proctor, Vice President of Sales at Lightning Labels. "Product labels are an effective way for brands to show prospects they care and express their empathy for victims and their families."
Charity Labels and Stickers Show Companies Care
Many businesses will actively support Breast Cancer Awareness Month this year, and charity labels and stickers are the perfect means for organizations to show it. Whether companies want to donate a portion of their profits to charity foundations that contribute to breast cancer awareness or simply want do their part and support the cause, product labels and stickers are the perfect first step.
The most obvious way for companies prospective customers that they support Breast Cancer Awareness Month is by incorporating the color pink into product labels and stickers. The pink ribbon is widely recognized as the international symbol of breast cancer, while the color pink is often used in various goods to show the wearer or promoter supports breast cancer awareness.
Product manufacturers could choose to update their custom labels by substituting some colors with pink. They could also opt to keep their regular product label designs but incorporate a graphical representation of the pink ribbon somewhere on the packaging. If companies are donating some portion of proceeds to breast cancer research and other related causes, they may want to include a quick blurb about their plans as well on product labels.
Of course, it is important to be mindful of any regional copyrights in that regard. Whereas the pink ribbon is public domain in the United States, that is not necessarily the case elsewhere.
