When labelling by machine, all is set ideally for material imbalances. The angle and move of withdrawing the labels from the roll and their application on your products is automated.
With manual labelling firstly you need to correctly and safely separate the label from the base of the roll. Do not try to pull it by grasping the label at one point, it may tear. Instead, grasp it on wider margins and pull gradually. Labels with atypical shapes are at the highest risk of getting torn and need extra practice.
Labels of atypical shapes need extra precaution to avoid tearing at the most delicate parts.
Booklet labels need to be grasped at the side opposite to the opening.
Helpful is to approximate the separation of the label from the base to the mechanics of a labelling machine. To do so, have your roll stretched on a firm and straight base and separate the label in a 90° degree.
When applying the label on your product, mind the first application point. Best is to start from the edge and apply further by smoothing. This way you avoid wrinkles and air bubbles (worst seen on transparent foils).
Except these principles, do not forget to have the base of your product clean and dry before label application. This will not only ease the adhesion of the label, but helps to present and sell your product as well.
