  artisticlabels.com Superior Labels
  Superior Labels offers graphic designs on rolls for $19.95, artisticlabels’ cost is only $7.95. However, Superior Labels offers many more designs on beautiful gloss roll stock with vibrant colors. Superior Labels exclusively offers colored text on roll labels, allows control over a larger variety of fonts and text sizes, and provides flexibility artisticlabel can not match. Superior Labels’ print quality on color graphic rolled labels is far superior to any competitors’.

  colourful.com.au Superior Labels
  Colourful’s artwork is stunning, but the website uses flash extensively (to a dizzying degree). There is no preview for the online ordering process which is not very intuitive. Probably of most interest to Australian residents.

  iprint.com Superior Labels
 

iprint.com launched in 1997, and raised $50-70 million in venture capital between 1997-1999.

In 2001, a class-action lawsuit filed against iprint.com charged that, during the Initial Public Offering (IPO) of iPrint stock, several directors and investment banking firms conspired to provide information that was “ …false and misleading because it failed to disclose… [an] agreement with certain investors to provide them with significant amounts of restricted iPrint shares in the IPO in exchange for exorbitant and undisclosed commissions… ”

An interesting synopsis can also be found here: http://securities.stanford.edu/1018/IPRT01/.

iprint.com is not a manufacturer and outsources all label production.

  ipc-store.com Superior Labels
 

Usually offered in newspaper advertisements, IPC’s labels require a mail-in order form with delivery stated as 4-6 weeks even though their company is in Salem, VA. Superior Labels previously offered IPC labels and stopped carrying them due to the enormous volume of customer complaints regarding quality and delivery speed issues. An extensive discussion of why the product was discontinued at Superior Labels can be found here.

*This IPC dispenser is more like a holder; a piece of plastic with a hole for the labels.

  vistaprint.com Superior Labels
 

Vistaprint’s pricing is difficult to state with accuracy because of constant experimentation. Prices as low as $1.99 for 140 labels have been found, but shipping costs are high and difficult to locate. (Over $7 for 3-4 week delivery) Site requires setting up an account and password. The order checkout process is long and somewhat confusing because of repeated attempts to upsell.

Vistaprint is a publicly traded company with revenues over $200 million dollars annually.
