Improve UV Protection with Safety Labels from Lightning Labels

Use Custom Labels and Stickers to Promote Awareness During UV Safety Month

During this year's UV Safety Month and beyond, Lightning Labels is eager to have a hand in promoting awareness through the use of custom labels and stickers

The United States Department of Health and Human Services named July UV Safety Month in a bid to increase awareness about the dangers of UV radiation from the sun's rays. Safety labels from Lightning Labels are a great way to get the word out.

According to the department's Federal Occupational Health website, many people remain unaware of how important it is to protect their skin from the sun, even though the skin is the body's largest organ and acts as a shield against everything from harsh weather to dangerous substances. Custom labels and stickers can help address this knowledge gap by drawing attention to the problem and offering workable solutions.

"Especially at this time of year, many people love nothing more than to go outside and enjoy the sunshine," noted Scott Proctor, vice president of sales at Lightning Labels. "While there's nothing wrong with catching some rays, many individuals simply don't know how to do so in a safe and responsible manner. During this year's UV Safety Month and beyond, Lightning Labels is eager to have a hand in changing this dangerous situation for the better."

Creating Informative Warning Labels
Lightning Labels has the ability produce a whole host of stickers and labels for different products, including summertime staples such as sunglasses, sunscreen and lip balm. Thanks to Lightning Labels' high-resolution printing technology, lengthy cautionary messages can be included on even the smallest warning labels. As detailed by the Department of Health and Human Services, such messages could advise people about a number of different protective measures, including:

  •     Staying in the shade and away from reflective surfaces whenever possible
  •     Being especially careful between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are at their strongest
  •     Shielding eyes from the sun's glare with hats and wrap-around sunglasses
  •     Using broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 15 or higher to safeguard against both UVA and UVB rays, and reapplying it often

Safeguard the Public with Flair Using Custom Stickers from Lightning Labels
Lightning Labels understands that the best custom stickers and labels are both eye-catching and informative. The Lightning Labels sticker creation process ensures every element is crisp and professional-looking, from the easy-to-read text to the vivid color schemes. Lightning Labels understands that putting together a great-looking label is only half the battle - packaging must also stand up to the elements in order to be truly successful. This can be a particular problem with products intended for use at the pool, on the beach or in the sun, as insufficiently durable stickers tend to quickly fade and peel under these harsh conditions. Lightning Labels offers a host of different label materials and laminates, including a number that are resistant to extreme heat, water, oil and light.
