The Worlds Most Versatile Manual Label Applicator

Quickly & Accurately Label Many Different Types of Containers!


Between the ZL5 & ZL8 you'll be able to

label just about any container you've got!

The applicators that started it all. The ZL5 and ZL8 labeling machines. 

The ZL5 and ZL8 are perfect for your hard to label containers. The low cost and high output make our labeler the perfect choice for small to mid-sized operations. 

Our ZL5 and ZL8 are manual labeling machines and are super simple to use and operate. Labeling is as simple as setting the guide rails to set the start point for your container. Setting the laser module to set the start point for your label and then pulling your container down over the padded roller to apply the label. Due to the method of application, it takes almost no effort to quickly and accurately apply labels to the container of your choice!

The ZL5 and ZL8 label applicators are almost the same. The difference is in the size label rolls that will fit. The ZL8 is built to accomodate a much larger label roll, either for a much higher production (less label roll swaps) or for much larger labels. Any container that can be labeled on the ZL5 can be labeled on the ZL8.

If you have questions about which label machine is right for you, just give us a call at 800-617-5251 or send us an email!

The ZL5 was our original manual label applicator. It has undergone quite a few changes since our very first bottle labeler. The result is that it as well as the ZL8 can label a wide variety of containers using pressure sensitive labels on a roll.  If you're wanting to label round containers, please check out our ZLS label applicator for small round containers under 2" in diameter, or our ZLA semi automatic bottle labeler for any containers over 2" in diameter.
