Add left/right horizontal padding to UILabel

For a full list of available solutions, see this answer: UILabel text margin

Try subclassing UILabel, like @Tommy Herbert suggests in the answer to [this question][1]. Copied and pasted for your convenience:

I solved this by subclassing UILabel and overriding drawTextInRect: like this:

- (void)drawTextInRect:(CGRect)rect {
    UIEdgeInsets insets = {0, 5, 0, 5};
    [super drawTextInRect:UIEdgeInsetsInsetRect(rect, insets)];
