About United Label Corporation

United label is a full service label manufacturer. We make our own plates and negatives in house allowing us to both exercise greater control and expedite the whole manufacturing process.

United Label Corporation was founded in 1965 in downtown Newark, New Jersey by four men with dozens of years of experience between them in the custom label business who saw a need for a higher level of quality and customer service in the custom label business. Needless to say, the late 60’s was not a fortuitous time to be founding a business in Newark. After the experience of having snipers on the roof during the ’67 riots, United Label Corporation built their own factory several miles to the west in Newark’s Ironbound district where they have been ever since.

In 2011 John O’Connor became the sole owner of United Label Corporation.

United Label Corporation has always responsive to customers needs and conducted ourselves based on the philosophy that we exist because of our valued relationships with our clients and to serve them.

United Label operates primarily flexographic presses for its label making. These high speed label presses allow us to print up to six colors, including four color process, laminate, varnish and die cut in line. This offers an economical alternative to sheet fed presses.
