The word Iddis is the Stavanger term for labels on cans. In the local dialect, the word label became ¨iddikett¨, which was later simplified to iddis. The two museums Norwegian Canning Museum and Norwegian Printing Museum share a common industrial history, as it was precisely the need for colourful labels and packaging for the growing canning industry that laid the foundation for the strong printing industry in Stavanger.
