    We would call it a label. – BobRodes Jul 13 '14 at 3:36

I would call that a label:

a piece of paper, cloth, or similar material that is attached to something to identify or describe it

    More specifically, if the label was made from shrunken plastic, it would be a shrink-wrapped label, and if it was glued on, it would be an adhesive label. Depending on the industry, some people put a lot of thought into this. – J.R. Jul 13 '14 at 8:22
