Which Label Material Is Right for You?

The best way to decide on a label material is to remember these questions:

  • How do I want the label material to look with design and product?
  • How will the label material hold in storage?

Label materials should complement the overall look of your design and product.

Clear labels are ideal when you want to enhance the contents of glass or plastic containers. Metallic labels can boost plain packaging and catch more attention when your products are displayed on the shelf.

Protective coatings like matte or high-gloss finishes can either enhance or diminish your label design. For example, gloss coating adds saturation and enhances design details, which goes best with colorful designs. Matte diffuses shine and goes better with darker colors and text-heavy or minimalist designs.

Label materials should be compatible with your product's environment.

Most adhesives will stick to any clean and smooth surface, but exposure to extreme temperatures or moisture impacts your label's efficacy. Paper adhesives are among the most popular materials and work great for general short-term applications and indoor use. Then there's waterproof and tear-resistant stock like polypropylene and vinyl, better suited for outdoor applications.

With your label's purpose in mind, you can select the best label stock for your application requirements.

Question and Answer

Can these labels be removed without leaving any residue?
Our labels adhere well to any smooth surface. Removing them may leave some residue, but there are various ways to peel them off, such as rubbing oil around the edges to loosen the adhesive. Be sure to check how you can remove stickers without damaging the surface.

What is the most durable label material?
White vinyl is our toughest adhesive. It is ideal for outdoor use and products exposed to heat, refrigeration, or water.

What are the advantages of clear label materials?
Clear BOPP is moisture-resistant and tearproof. This material can withstand freezing temperatures, so it's ideal for food products and outdoor applications. Clear BOPP allows you to get creative with "no-label" products for a clean and minimalist look.

Are metallic labels waterproof?
The high-gloss UV coating of our labels offers some protection against moisture, but the metallic ink labels are not waterproof. If you want a waterproof label with a metallic sheen, try silver metallic BOPP label material.

What's the most popular label material?
If you need something suitable for indoor use, we recommend white sticker paper. These are not waterproof, but you can add protective gloss or matte laminate for extra protection.
