AbstractA label for affixing to a container comprising a longitudinal strip 2 divided into a series of panels (10, 11, 12, 13) by a plurality of transverse fold lines (14, 15, 16), the first two panels (10, 11) forming a front cover 10 and a back cover 11 respectively for enveloping the remaining panel or panels (12, 13) of the strip 2 when folded, the transverse fold lines (14, 15, 16) being spaced along the strip 2 so that upon folding of the strip the said remaining panel or panels is or are folded to lie over the back cover 11 and is or are in turn covered by folding of the front cover 10 about the fold line 14 between the front and back covers; and a support web 26 to which the said back cover 11 is adhered, the support web 26 being dimensioned to extend laterally at least beyond the edge of the back cover which occurs at the fold line 15 between the back cover 11 and the remaining panel or panels, (12, 13) the front cover panel 10 being dimensioned so that its free outer edge 18 opposite to the fold line 14 between the front and back cover panels extends beyond the area of the support web occupied by the back cover 11 thereby to form an overlapping portion 22, the area of the support web 26 which in use lies below the said overlapping portion 22 being provided with adhesive 24 for securing the front cover panel in a closed condition, and the front cover panel 10 being arranged to be torn or otherwise opened to give access to the interior of the folded label.
