John found there was an increasing demand for self-adhesive labels. Supermarkets were becoming the new way to shop & new packaging requirements for meat exporting companies required labels for pre-packed meat. For these reasons, John decided to specialise in self-adhesive labels.
From those early days the business has grown to become one of New Zealand’s premier suppliers of high-quality self-adhesive labels & print. To this day, labels are still produced on-site at our factory in Hastings. John’s daughters Abbie & Jo now own the company & have upgraded mr labels print capabilities to better service our customers requirements.
Being based in one of New Zealand’s premium wine-growing districts, it’s only natural that we should have an association with the wine industry. We are also the supplier of choice for many small artisan producers, such as cottage industries or farmer’s market retailers. We provide a full range of self-adhesive labels to New Zealand industries, including food & beverage, meat processors, bakeries, confectionery, cosmetic, pharmaceutical & general manufacturers.
With our expert knowledge & key print partners we can produce any order, you name it we can print it. When you deal with mr, you deal with a small friendly team who really stick by our products (excuse the pun!). Being %100 locally owned means we can make decisions quickly, with fast turnaround times & excellent pricing. We have built our reputation on producing the highest quality work, backed by our exceptional customer service.

“mrlabels rocks! As a charity with limited financial resources, we went to see the people at mrlabels to get a quote for new brochures. Not only did they print new brochures, but they created a professional design as well. We have nothing but praise for their friendly approach and generosity in going the extra mile”

We rely not just on the quality but also the excellent and timely service that Mark and his team consistently provide us. A pleasure to do business with”
“Over the past 10 years, I have ordered countless blank freezer proof labels of a multitude of sizes for our customers’ varying needs, where country-specific export details are required (amongst other things) to cover existing text on a wine label. The friendly and efficient staff at mrlabels have gone the extra mile, often at very short notice, to ensure I have the blank labels in time to print for our bottling runs. Being a qualified typesetter myself, I would highly recommend mrlabels for all your print requirements”
“We previously produced our labels in-house but it wasn’t viable due to the costs of staff time, materials and the delays it caused. Working with mrlabels has made our label procurement so quick, easy and cost effective, giving us back valuable time to spend working on our business”
