Your customer number is typically numeric and is located on the top right of your invoice or can be found under Account Settings in your customer portal. For additional questions about your customer number, contact our Customer Care department.
Yes, Shamrock prides itself on quick turnaround times and delivery for stock and custom items. However, we also offer expedited shipping options if you need our products sooner than the expected delivery date. For online stock orders, choose expedited shipping at checkout. For custom orders, please contact our Customer Care department to request expedited shipping.
We recognize that businesses of all sizes need to manage their resources effectively, especially when it comes to balancing supplies with available storage. To help our customers, Shamrock offers stocking agreements to ensure that an adequate supply of your products is available and in stock in our facilities when needed. Simply call to reorder, and we’ll ship them to you.
It's easy. Contact our Customer Care department to set up a stocking agreement.
Shamrock carries a wide range of materials and adhesives designed to accommodate different applications and environmental conditions. Our team can work with you to identify the material and adhesive that is right for your unique need. For a custom material consultation, contact our Customer Care department or call 800-323-0249.
Absolutely! Simply provide us with the appropriate Pantone color, and we will custom order the ink for you! (Please note there is a $50 charge per custom color.)
Labels and tapes manufactured on a roll often need to be wound to come off of the roll with a specific orientation, known as the wind direction. Shamrock offers eight unique label wind directions. See our diagram below:
To create variations in the shade or intensity of a color, we use a screening technique to control the amount of ink applied within an area. For example, the screening process allows the color red to produce varying shades of red and pink or to be combined with other colors to create tints.
Generally speaking, our team can reproduce almost any design. However, we recommend submitting image files so our Prepress team can adequately review the specifications. Upon request, Shamrock provides mock-ups to ensure your design meets your requirements. Use our Design A Label custom label builder or contact our Customer Care department to begin your custom label design.
Shamrock will work with you to achieve your satisfaction before going to press. However, in cases where there are excessive proof revisions, graphics time that exceeds 45 minutes (frequently to recreate logos), or other less common scenarios, Shamrock will charge an art fee. Contact our Customer Care department to discuss your specific situation.

Like many industries, raw material prices for paper, adhesive, and backing materials have changed drastically over the last few years. While we have done what we can to absorb these costs, we’ve had to pass on incremental price increases to continue operating and serving our customers. We encourage you to contact our Customer Care department to explore options, like a stocking agreement, that provides more consistent pricing.
In addition to offering thousands of stock products to order online, Shamrock specializes in custom products to meet your unique needs. We are happy to provide a quote for your custom order.
Several factors go into generating a quote, including your project’s complexity, whether a new plate or die is required, what materials or adhesives are needed, and how many colors will be printed.
Also, we encourage you to use our Design A Label custom label builder on our website to design your label or upload your design. After we receive your submission, our team will contact you for additional information needed to generate a quote.
