Why Us

Why Us

Zippy Labels is one of the most well-established label printing companies in Johannesburg, and we have been in the printed labels business for the past 20 years. Started by the Thomas Family team, consisting of Kevin and Maryke, John and Bev, Zippy Labels began its product label enterprise. What started with just two small printing machines, has now expanded into a fully independent label printing company, with its large premises based in Edenvale, and a staff contingent of more than 60 people.

Although very much in touch with our humble beginnings (Zippy Labels still has clients from 20 years ago), we remain relevant by staying up-to-date with the latest label printing technology. Zippy Labels’ key focus is on keeping abreast of printing trends, as well as investing in new technology – our most recent being a state-of-the-art HP Indigo digital label printing machine. This latest addition allows for faster turnaround times, higher quality, less wastage, and a far more economical option for our clients.

The Zippy Labels’ team also boasts an in-house design department with our own plate-making equipment on site. Thanks to our decades-long expertise and growth, we also have a huge bank of dies. Zippy Labels is an enormously versatile label printing company: whether you need product labels, stickers, packaging labels, barcode printing or self-adhesive labels – Zippy can make it happen.
