The type of label you are quoting will determine the adhesive(s) available. The most common adhesives are permanent, temporary, removable and repositionable. We carry a wide selection of adhesives for indoor and outdoor use.
Coated stock is super-shiny paper produced by pressing the paper against a polished metal drum while the coating is still wet. Uncoated stock has a matte or dull finish and will absorb the inks printed on the paper, making them appear slightly duller.
There are hundreds of label materials. Generally, labels are made from paper, vinyl, polyester, polyethylene and other types of specialty films.
A vinyl substrate is ideal for outside application. Flexographic inks are water-based, so they will fade if they are exposed to the sun for an extended period of time. Please consult with your customer service representative regarding your label’s environment and intended use.
UV coated labels are when we apply a varnish (liquid based) to labels that are then cured by a UV light. We also offer spot UV coating where we only apply the varnish to parts of the label.
Labels can have a gloss, matte, UV coating or laminate finish. Applying a finish can add an extra measure of protection for the label’s inks.
