    Create Fun, Vibrant Custom Stickers for the Super Bowl and Valentine's Day!

    Upcoming Events are Great Promo Opportunities

    Is your company ready to celebrate Valentine's Day? What about the Super Bowl? These are huge cultural events, and between the two of them, they cover a huge variety of target demographics. Custom stickers to place on your products - or just improve the look of your stores or offices - can draw the eye and get people interested in shopping with you and making purchases.

    There's still time to get Super Bowl or Valentine's Day stickers and have them in time for the big days. These are even more flexible than using full-scale product labels, as you can stick them onto items as they go onto the shelves, then peel off the ones that are still there after Valentine's Day and the Super Bowl. That way, you'll get the promo benefits as the events arrive, with no leftover irrelevant merchandise after the fact.

    Courting the Couples

    Valentine's Day is a huge event on the calendar at businesses of all kinds. Sell items that could be great gifts for couples? You can say so with Valentine's Day stickers. This is a perfect application for stickers as opposed to labels, as the gift-giver can peel the stickers off before wrapping the present up. Little reminders that the day is coming up, in the form of stickers, can go over well with customers, who will appreciate the heads-up and potentially make a purchase on the spot. Obviously, the earlier you put stickers on products, the more likely you are to inspire such an "ah-ha" moment in shoppers.

    Getting Ready for the Big Game

    The Super Bowl has become synonymous with parties and get-togethers, as fans of teams that made to the big game unite with other football fans, or people who are more interested in mega-budget commercials, to watch on TV. If you sell products that would enliven these events, go ahead and print stickers. While the NFL and its teams will zealously protect their trademarks, there are plenty of ways to use neutral football imagery and text to spark interest among your shoppers, especially if the team in your area is making a deep playoff run. With such a carefully regulated event, it's worth looking up the guidelines - but there are ample ways to design fun stickers and stay compliant.

    Timing is Everything

    Valentine's Day and the Super Bowl are united by a fun, vibrant atmosphere. These are days to get together and celebrate, and as such they make great marketing opportunities for you. They are also events that cease to become relevant to shoppers right after they occur, with the imagery and signifiers suddenly looking dated from the moment convenience stores move their Valentine's Day candy to the markdown aisle. This means you should work quickly and deploy stickers as soon as possible.

    It's not too late to get Valentine's Day stickers, Super Bowl stickers, or any other custom stickers to celebrate upcoming events in mid-to-late February. Lightning Labels prides itself on its quick and efficient processes, relying on all-digital printing to get you the stickers you need in a matter of days, not weeks or months. If you're considering letting Valentine's Day and the Super Bowl pass - but have products that could benefit from cross-promotion - it's time to reconsider and take action.

  • Custom Stickers and Decals for Spring Sports

    Think About Spring

    Stickers and decals can be huge sources of promotion for a sports team. If you work with a school or local team in one of the spring sports - baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse or any other - now is a great time to think about how you're going to keep team spirit high this season. With custom decals and stickers, you can give fans an outlet to pledge their allegiance, and a way to reach out to others. This is a way to make sure your distinctive team colors and logo are seen throughout the community, whether you sell the stickers or give them out for free as a promotional item.

    Decals and Stickers Make a Splash

    A removable window decal is one of the best types of sticker you can choose when you're thinking of ways to promote a team. The fact that these stickers peel off the window with no damage done or lingering residue means people will fearlessly stick them to windows at home, work or on the go. When it's time for the spring season, fans can switch out winter sports logos for custom sports decals full of springtime imagery. Since these decals are such an easy sell, you can print them fearlessly, knowing you'll likely find a willing audience happy to stick them up.

    When it comes to promoting a school sports team, there are many venues to give out custom stickers. Hand them to students or parents at the beginning of the season, pass them out at games, give them as a bonus to anyone who donates to a team fundraiser - the uses are numerous, and can help you get the word out about the team. People with a connection to the team will want to show that allegiance, and you give them a great medium for that pride with your stickers and decals.

    You'll know you've succeeded in your promotional mission when you see your custom sports stickers around town, on business windows, car bumpers, laptops - any flat surface will do! Stickers are such a compelling promotional item because they beg to be shown off and displayed. When team supporters put up a sticker in a visible place, it reminds others in the community that the season is going on. Such a promotional push is an auspicious start for the new year, so it's time to prepare now, even with snow on the ground in many corners of the country.

    Get Ready for Spring

    Printing stickers for the upcoming season early isn't a necessity due to slow printing - in actuality, Lightning Labels turns orders around in days, rather than weeks or months. Rather, you should start planning and ordering now to ensure you have your strategy lined up from before the first game of the new year gets underway. It's time to work with a trusted third party to ensure your team's logo and color scheme translate seamlessly to a high-quality and tough batch of stickers or window decals. With sticker planning out of the way, you can get started on game planning!

  • Go Team Go! Show Your Team Spirit with Custom Spirit Sheets

    Promoting Your Season

    It's time for another exciting season for your sports team. Whether you're involved with a school team or a local pro or amateur side, you're likely looking for ways to get fans on board and keep them engaged for the whole campaign. This is a job for stickers. Hand out the right mix of promotional stickers and you'll give your fans a reminder that you're out there putting it on the line, and they should be watching and cheering. But how can you work out the materials, shapes and quantities of stickers that will appeal to the audience? Lightning Labels has done some of the work for you by introducing Spirit Sheets.

    Exciting Features

    What makes custom Spirit Sheets better than an average mixture of stickers? Every element of the product has been tuned to help you reach out to fans and followers. That means you can place an order and immediately have a great promotional tool that people will keep through the whole season.

    Great mix of shapes: Spirit Sheets come with a few big stickers, perfect for a print-out of your roster or schedule to stick on the fridge or the back of a laptop. These will stay with fans for months, and they'll always remember to support the team. These large options are accompanied by smaller stickers, perfect for your logo or a design incorporating your sport's equipment of choice - a baseball, soccer ball, hockey puck, basketball - the options are endless.

    Special offering for football: But what if you're promoting a football team? Those round stickers seem less useful for this popular sport. That's why Lightning Labels offers a die configuration with small stickers shaped like footballs, helmets and cheer megaphones. Football program administrators can order Spirit Sheets that look tailor-made for their team imagery.

    Repositionable adhesive: When you want your fans to stick up your logo in their homes, give them an item that's easy and convenient to use. Your team Spirit Sheets will come backed with repositionable instead of permanent adhesive, meaning recipients won't think twice about sticking one of your big stickers to a stainless steel appliance or a laptop, even if it only applies to the current season.

    • Quantity of choice: If the team you love represents a small school or plays in a rural location, you may feel it would be overkill to order hundreds of Spirit Sheets. Lightning Labels still has you covered. As an all-digital printer, its services are available even in small quantities. The minimum order size for Spirit Sheets is a mere 50.

    A Bold Look for Your Team

    It's time to step up and promote your next season. Whether you're in the market for school Spirit Sheets or looking to promote a local franchise, there's likely a season just around the corner. It's time to place an order with Lightning Labels and be the first competitor in your division to reach out through the flexible and bold medium of custom stickers. These are little reminders that will stick with fans for months and carry team spirit far and wide.

  • Get in the Spirit: Promote Your Team, Business or Fundraiser with Spirit Sheets

    A Great Assortment

    When it's time to promote a local sports team, any kind of business or a one-off event, there are lots of different custom sticker options. Instead of picking a single shape or size of stickers, you can select spirit sheets, which combine many different shapes and sizes of stickers. This is an especially good choice if you're responsible for a football team, as Lightning Labels offers a special football spirit sheet option, with ball and helmet-shaped custom stickers.

    Custom spirit sheets are a versatile and affordable way to give out coupons to supporters, alongside stickers that will last a long time, carrying your team or brand's message. You can even give them to team members or employees - team building spirit sheets will let them show their own support or hand the many stickers out to friends and family.

    Many Possible Uses

    When you've got a school or professional sports season coming up, a fundraiser to promote or a company putting on a sale, it's time to consider spirit sheets. These contain between one and three rectangular die-cut stickers, combined with smaller circular options and either a large circle or a mouse pad-sized option, all printed with repositional adhesive in full color. Many different scenarios work well with spirit sheets.

    Professional or scholastic sports teams: When you're marketing tickets for a local sports team, no matter the game in question, a spirit sheet can be handy. You can make one of the small die-cut stickers into a coupon for discounted concessions at the stadium, use the larger ones to display the upcoming schedule or the roster. These applications will make recipients keep the stickers around their houses, stuck to the refrigerator or computer, with your logo always front-and-center. Soccer balls, baseballs, basketballs and hockey pucks are all circular, opening up easy design possibilities for the round stickers. Footballs are an odd shape - but Lightning Labels has you covered, offering a standard option which contains smaller stickers shaped like with footballs and helmets.

    Business events or nonprofit fundraisers: When it's time to promote a company or nonprofit, printing up spirit sheets can help get the word out. Coupons are still a great choice for the smaller die-cut stickers. If the event is for a company, lists of hours or services offered can go on the larger stickers, with logos and contact information on the smaller ones. If your brand's logo is appealing enough, these stickers may end up on home appliances, phones, tablets or computers. If you're running a nonprofit instead of a for-profit company, you can give fundraiser spirit sheets to your donors, giving them many ways to show their support for your organization and keep your contact information close.

    Organizations of Any Size can Benefit

    There's no such thing as a company, nonprofit, school or team too large or small to promote itself via spirit sheets from Lightning Labels. With minimum order sizes as low as 50 and quick turnaround times, anyone can get these excellent promotional tools at a reasonable price. Spreading a name and a logo via custom stickers is a powerful branding tool, and spirit sheets contain many different shapes and sizes of stickers, suited to a variety of applications.

  • November is National Peanut Butter Lovers Month

    Celebrate Peanut Butter with Custom Food Labels

    There is a time in the calendar set aside to celebrate just about every food you can imagine, but November's a big one. It's National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. This versatile spread is great as part of a meal or snack, and is beloved by millions. If you produce either peanut butter or an item that goes well with it, this month is a great time to draw a little extra attention to your brand.

    Custom product labels will look great on the shelves, helping your offerings stand out from the many other varieties out there. The changes you make could even be the first step in a year-round rebrand that will add appeal in December and beyond.

    Multiple Ways to Draw the Eye

    What kinds of new elements can you add to product labels in addition to nutrition facts, your logo and some descriptive text? The most obvious element for National Peanut Butter Lovers Month is a shout-out to the event itself. A colorful reminder that November is set aside for the appreciation of peanut butter could convince shoppers that this is a great time to eat some. Since your brand is the one that gave the heads-up, chances are that's the jar the buyer will pick.

    Another option involves recipes. Putting a recipe on your brand's labels is a big opportunity to both celebrate the national event and give a highly practical suggestion. The path to purchase becomes clear: Consumers will see the recipe and decide that it sounds delicious - and to take it home, they'll buy your brand of peanut butter. This tactic even works if you don't make peanut butter. As long as your product can be prepared with peanut butter, you can tie it into National Peanut Butter Lovers Month and print the relevant recipe on the label.

    If your items have particularly interesting health benefits, the branding refresh that comes along with National Peanut Butter Lovers Month may also be a great chance to update nutritional labels and make sure shoppers know the advantages they may be getting from buying the items. Is your peanut butter a healthy alternative to other brands? Is it rich in protein? These are the kinds of benefits that can look good on a label.

    Lightning-Fast Orders

    Since November has already begun, you may believe it's too late to create a tie-in to National Peanut Butter Lovers Month this year. If you work with Lightning Labels, however, your window of opportunity is still open. Lightning Labels works with all-digital processes at domestic facilities that can turn your order around in a hurry - a matter of days, rather than weeks or months.

    When your business' success depends on selling particular food products, it can pay to keep an eye on special events and possible promotional opportunities. Dedicated months are a unique sub-set of chances for cross-promotion. If peanut butter is your offering of choice, November is a great time to make an extra push.

  • Custom Vinyl Stickers for a Multitude of Uses

    Make a Bright Statement with Custom Vinyl Stickers

    No matter what message your brand, organization or club is trying to send, custom vinyl stickers are one possible answer. When you work with an industry-leading printing partner, your creativity can take over. Whether you want a bold, futuristic or elegant look that conjures up the past, there is an option available. Digital printing methods are extremely versatile, and imagery of all kinds looks great. Durable vinyl stickers can get a logo or message seen, and you can choose from a variety of ways to deploy them.

    Many Uses for Custom Made Stickers

    Stickers are good for internal or external purposes. Either stick them to your own items or hand them out and spread a message wherever the recipients go. Tough vinyl stickers can hold up even when exposed to the elements, and no matter the type of organization you're looking to promote, they can help. Here are a few of their prominent uses:

    • Political campaign stickers: A candidate's name and logo will look great on a durable vinyl sticker. Alternatively, if you're hoping to get people to support or reject a piece of legislation, saying so in bold text on a vinyl sticker should help the cause. When you're promoting a campaign, going with vinyl sticker printing instead of settling for less tough materials is a can ensure the message stays vibrant until election day.
    • Business promotional stickers: Are you opening a new retail location? Having a sale? Want to promote your website or social media account? Handing out stickers is a great way to spread any one of these messages. Throw these items in for free when people buy from you, pass them out at community events or partner with other local brands to attach your logo to another campaign - you'll love seeing your company's name around town.
    • Fun stickers for kids: Maybe you don't have a political campaign to promote or a company to boost, perhaps just some kids to educate or entertain. Custom stickers help here, too. In classroom settings or places where a sticker might be a proud sign of good behavior - such as a doctor or dentist's office - tough vinyl stickers are a top choice.

    Small Order Sizes Available

    Even if you think your project doesn't need enough stickers to justify professional printing, chances are actually eligible. Lightning Labels can handle small or large batches of custom vinyl stickers, so whether you want a few of a large number of designs, a limited run of stickers for a special event or a huge print run to last for years, you can find what you're looking for.

  • Window Decals: Ideal for Retail Locations

    Spread Brand Messages through Vibrant Decals

    Your retail business should be as bright and compelling to look at as possible. People walking by should be immediately interested and want to see more. This means mastering signage and creating a great-looking facade. But there's one part of your storefront you may be missing - the windows. With high-quality window decals, you can show off your logo or send out other information. You can also purchase custom decals for automotive use - stick them to the windows of your vehicle fleet or hand them out to customers as an alternative to bumper stickers.

    Windows that Tell a Story

    What kind of information can be conveyed by a window sticker? These can contain small versions of your business's logo, show off particular merchandise you sell, or even state your membership in local retail groups or organizations. If you want to show off how many different payment methods you accept, window decals can help with that, as well. You can also add new and vibrant spins to old standbys such as signs that display the business's hours. Instead of taping up a cardboard sign, go with a custom decal that looks at home with the rest of your branded signage.

    Beyond these evergreen uses, you can also use seasonal or promotion-based stickers. Window decal printing can give you a bright new look that highlights either the time of year or the particular items being discounted. By going with custom window stickers instead of creating a makeshift sign, you gain a level of professionalism in the presentation that audiences will appreciate. Retail shoppers browsing down Main Street will know that your company is competent and reliable, with compelling branding extending from your main signs down to the labels promoting every particular element of the shop and item for sale.

    Cars Carry the Message

    Instead of limiting your branded appeal to your own storefront, you can print window decals intended for car use. Sell them in your shop, hand them out with orders of a certain amount or distribute them at local events. These have the same impact as bumper stickers, and people may be more willing to use them, as a decal stuck to a window is much more removable than a conventional sticker. This is a great way to get your message out in your geographic region and beyond. Putting your Web address on the stickers can also encourage viewers to check your store out even if they don't physically visit.

    Time to Get Underway

    There's no need to wait to get any of these types of stickers - you can begin in a hurry with Lightning Labels. Quick turnaround times ensure that your project is fast-tracked. This is important in retail: When you get a good idea to make your storefront more compelling, you want to see the results right away instead of waiting. This is what a new order of window stickers can deliver. What kind of message do you want to send to passersby? Think about it, then make the order, and your stickers will be there soon.

  • It's Not Too Early to Get Your Labels Ready for the Holidays

    Now's the Time to Plan Ahead

    The air is still warm and in many places school isn't back in session - but it's still a great time to think ahead to the winter holidays. If you have products to sell, your holiday sales numbers can get a serious boost from creating a plan well beforehand, ensuring that the strategy is robust and complete rather than a last-minute afterthought. Packaging concerns are one possible element that can be squared away now. Getting your holiday labels printed well in advance ensures that the specially marked goods will be on the shelves for the entirety of the festive season.

    Catch Eyes This Year

    People shopping for gifts - or for themselves - in November and December may be won over by colorful and appealing labels incorporating seasonal imagery. Christmas labels or designs promoting other winter occasions can add a little flair to your lineup and even serve as a reminder that customers should be making extra effort to buy perfect presents for their friends and family members.

    Whether you've employed seasonal packaging strategies before or are adding it to your strategy for the first time this year, it's never too early to think about holiday label printing. Throughout the whole holiday season, customers from digital early birds to last-minute retail shoppers will be happy to see products that emphasize the season. There are plenty of great images you can employ, and a lot of variety based on the region your company is based in, the types of items you sell and the holidays your customer base celebrates.

    If your product line leans heavily on mail-order and delivery than in-person sales, even the packages you use to dispatch goods can be made more festive - consider holiday address labels that show customers you're feeling the spirit of the season. These are an especially great type of label to buy early, as individuals who receive orders in September, October or November that mention the winter holidays on the return address label may be inspired to buy presents and end-of-year bargains from you as well. These stickers show your brand's flair while also serving as good reminders to shop.

    Be Ready To Go

    Taking early action on holiday labels is a great idea from a strategy perspective. True to its name, Lightning Labels can turn around orders in lightning-fast times, but that doesn't mean you should refrain from placing an order until the last minute. Having your holiday-labeled products ready to go from now until the end of the year enables you to launch your seasonal plans at the drop of a hat.

    So, while it's still beach weather, it pays to have your mind on the holidays. You know the importance of the end of the year from a revenue perspective, which means it's impossible to put too much thought or effort into maximizing its effectiveness. Great designs printed on high-quality labels will attract attention and can subtly let customers know that the season is upon them and it's time to shop. It's time to have a great holiday season - then think about next year!

  • August is National Immunization Awareness Month

    Stickers Can Raise Awareness of Vaccinations' Importance

    Modern medicine has eliminated many of the diseases that once ravaged the population. This is an astounding fact that may be a bit overlooked, due to the very fact that people no longer have to deal with sicknesses such as measles or polio and thus forget about them. Every August is set aside to recognize the role immunization plays in keeping the world healthy. National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is a great time to offer up reminders of vaccines' role, and remind people who may be behind on their immunizations to go in.

    Custom Stickers Raise Vaccines' Profile

    Stickers and labels are highly effective ways to draw attention to a cause. If you work in the health care field, you can take advantage of these items during NIAM to ask important questions, such as "Are your vaccines up to date?" These reminders can relate to kids, who are set to have their immunizations for the first time, or adults, who may be behind on theirs. In either case, custom printed stickers are a great way to get the message out.

    Handing out stickers to people who have visited a doctor's office is one way to spread the message, as is putting them up on surfaces in the health care facility itself. Customized stickers made by a quality-conscious printer are bold and eye-catching and can incorporate highly legible text and brightly colored imagery. Causes that may have been forgotten or fallen by the wayside can immediately spring back into people's consciousness when they see a well-made and well-placed sticker.

    It's Not Too Late

    You may be thinking that as August is already underway, it's too late for custom sticker printing. However, that's not true. Lightning Labels is capable of quick turnaround times, so whether you need a few stickers for a single NIAM event or a large amount to hand out over the remainder of the month, you can get your order in with time to spare.

    Diseases that were once major scourges to the population have been reduced to fringe concerns or bad memories thanks to vaccination. Celebrating this medical breakthrough and its continued importance is a great cause, one that can save more lives by increasing awareness. It's not too late to make such an effort via custom stickers. Then, once August is over, it's time to look ahead to calendar-based medical events taking place in the months ahead. New sticker runs can raise awareness of these in turn.

  • Promote Your Business with Custom Bumper Stickers

    Bumper Stickers: Signs That Go Anywhere

    There are a few surefire ways to get your brand logo in front of large amounts of people. And when it comes to methods that take place in physical space instead of an online environment, few methods can compete with bumper stickers. When you convince a customer to put one of your custom bumper stickers on his or her car, you create a mini billboard that will travel all over the area, presenting your logo, name, slogan or other well-chosen piece of iconography.

    Of course, the success of these methods relies on making the customized bumper stickers as attractive and long-lasting as possible. This ensures that they will be used instead of thrown away and, once they are applied to a car, they will spread the message instead of peeling away or fading. Therefore, it's important to look for a provider that uses modern printing processes and tough materials.

    Advantages of Deploying Bumper Stickers

    When your brand prints and distributes bumper stickers for cars, the benefits can take a few forms. For instance, putting the company name in front of a huge segment of the local population can build awareness. When it comes time to choose between a few competing organizations, individuals may go with a name or logo they have seen before. Since people have already seen your message around, presumably on the cars of your existing satisfied customers, they will feel trust right away.

    In addition to putting a name in front of potential customers who haven't yet heard it, bumper stickers can also be a great generator of hype and excitement around a brand, especially if you succeed in giving them away. Whether the stickers are promoting a specific event or just the company in general, they will help ensure your offerings are never far from the public eye.

    A Great Giveaway

    How do you get stickers into the hands of customers? This part of the process is actually easy. Whether consumers are dealing with your brand in person or via a delivered order, you can toss in a free sticker with the purchase. As long as the bumper sticker is attractive and looks like it would be a good addition to a car, it will get used. When you start to see your logo in traffic all over town, you will know that your giveaway has struck the right chord with the public. People love free added value, and when a sticker is well designed and printed, it comes across as a bonus, not an ad.

    Get Car Stickers Today

    Summer is a great time to launch a bumper sticker ad campaign. People will be out and about, driving on road trips and spreading your brand name far and wide. It's not too late to commit to a print run of bumper stickers during the sunny season, either. Working with Lightning Labels and its lightning-fast turnaround times lets you transform an idea into a physical bumper sticker design quickly and efficiently. With great quality materials and printing processes, the stickers will remain effective mini billboards for a very long time.

1-10 of 26

Material Descriptions

Materials

BIOSTONE

One of our eco-friendly options that is actually made of stone—no trees are used. This material should not laminated.

CAST GLOSS

This is another material specially designed for the wine industry. It is paper-based with a high-gloss white finish. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

CHROME (SILVER) BOPP

This material has the same water and oil-resistant properties as our White BOPP and Clear BOPP, but has the "mirror-like" look of shiny chrome.

CLASSIC CREST

Best suited for wine labels, this is a white paper stock with a dull matte finish. It is not suitable for lamination and is therefore not waterproof. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

CLEAR BOPP

This is the clear version of the Polypropylene (BOPP) material. It has the same waterproof qualities as the White BOPP. It provides more of a "no label" look and is also suitable for window stickers (where reverse printing of the image allows the label to be applied to the inside of a glass window and be viewed from the outside).

ESTATE #9

This is a great option for wine labels, gourmet foods or applications where a textured finish is desired. Being a paper stock, it's not as water-resistant or durable as BOPP, but its light cream color and textured feel add a touch of the "unusual" to the right product. It features a special adhesive (removable in 100+ degree hot water) and a stronger liner particularly suited to machine application. Not suitable for lamination.

GOLD POLYESTER (METALIZED)

This material will make your labels shine! Suitable for most labeling applications, it has a strong adhesive backing and must be laminated. Choose glossy laminate to make your label designs pop, or matte for a unique, elegant look.

KRAFT (RECYCLED)

This is a recycled 100% post consumer waste material. It is a 55# paper material that is a wonderful option if an “earthy” appearance is desired. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water. It is not suitable for lamination; therefore, it is not water or oil resistant.

REMOVABLE WHITE BOPP

This material is the same as our standard BOPP, but has a special, "less aggressive" adhesive designed to allow the label to be removed or re-positioned after application. Depending on the surface it will be applied to, customer testing is strongly recommended. We can provide samples for this purpose.

SATIN CLOTH

Quite the unique material! Yes, it is woven satin acetate cloth. Think wine or spirit labels! This material will make your product packaging POP. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.

SQUEEZABLE

A white, 3mil film that is better suited for squeezable applications. This material has proven to work well in a variety of applications, so you can be confident it will perform well for you.

VELLUM (RECYCLED)

A great “green” choice, this 60# vellum is 100% recycled with 100% post consumer waste material. Cannot be laminated. Is neither water nor oil-resistant. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.

WHITE BOPP

This is our most commonly used material and is suitable for most applications. It's a polypropylene material with a permanent adhesive. It is impervious to water and oils, and is particularly suitable for bath and body products, as well as food containers.

WHITE EARTHFIRST PLA

A more environmentally friendly alternative to White BOPP. The PLA stands for Polylactic Acid (a biopolymer made from corn rather than petrochemicals). Similar look and feel to BOPP and suitable for most applications, but should not be used directly on candle containers.

WHITE FLEXIBLE VINYL

This is our most substantial material. The vinyl is thicker than BOPP, and is most suitable for outdoor applications where greater strength and durability are needed, or where lengthy exposure to the elements is an issue.

WINDOW DECAL (CLEAR/ULTRA-REMOVABLE)

We offer this window decal option as an alternative to static cling. The face stock is clear with excellent clarity. The adhesive is an ultra-removable featuring excellent weatherability and UV resistance. It removes cleanly from a wide variety of substrates without staining or ghosting. Why worry about static clings staying on when you can have removable adhesive there to hold it in place?

CAST GLOSS

This is another material specially designed for the wine industry. It is paper-based with a high-gloss white finish. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

CHROME (SILVER) BOPP

This material has the same water and oil-resistant properties as our White BOPP and Clear BOPP, but has the "mirror-like" look of shiny chrome.

CLASSIC CREST

Best suited for wine labels, this is a white paper stock with a dull matte finish. It is not suitable for lamination and is therefore not waterproof. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.

KRAFT (RECYCLED)

This is a recycled 100% post consumer waste material. It is a 55# paper material that is a wonderful option if an “earthy” appearance is desired. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water. It is not suitable for lamination; therefore, it is not water or oil resistant.

REMOVABLE WHITE BOPP

This material is the same as our standard BOPP, but has a special, "less aggressive" adhesive designed to allow the label to be removed or re-positioned after application. Depending on the surface it will be applied to, customer testing is strongly recommended. We can provide samples for this purpose.

SATIN CLOTH

Quite the unique material! Yes, it is woven satin acetate cloth. Think wine or spirit labels! This material will make your product packaging POP. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.

SQUEEZABLE

A white, 3mil film that is better suited for squeezable applications. This material has proven to work well in a variety of applications, so you can be confident it will perform well for you.

VELLUM (RECYCLED)

A great “green” choice, this 60# vellum is 100% recycled with 100% post consumer waste material. Cannot be laminated. Is neither water nor oil-resistant. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.

WHITE BOPP

This is our most commonly used material and is suitable for most applications. It's a polypropylene material with a permanent adhesive. It is impervious to water and oils, and is particularly suitable for bath and body products, as well as food containers.

WHITE EARTHFIRST PLA

A more environmentally friendly alternative to White BOPP. The PLA stands for Polylactic Acid (a biopolymer made from corn rather than petrochemicals). Similar look and feel to BOPP and suitable for most applications, but should not be used directly on candle containers.

WHITE FLEXIBLE VINYL

This is our most substantial material. The vinyl is thicker than BOPP, and is most suitable for outdoor applications where greater strength and durability are needed, or where lengthy exposure to the elements is an issue.

WINDOW DECAL (CLEAR/ULTRA-REMOVABLE)

We offer this window decal option as an alternative to static cling. The face stock is clear with excellent clarity. The adhesive is an ultra-removable featuring excellent weatherability and UV resistance. It removes cleanly from a wide variety of substrates without staining or ghosting. Why worry about static clings staying on when you can have removable adhesive there to hold it in place?

Laminates

High Gloss

High gloss is our most popular laminate. It is the least expensive option and provides protection for the label and a high gloss shiny finish.

Matte

The Matte Laminate provides your label with a dull, non-glossy finish. Some customers consider this achieves a more "natural" look.

Thermal Transfer

This is a gloss laminate that is designed to work with most over-printing thermal transfer printers. We do recommend you get samples first to test through your own printer before placing an order with this laminate.

UV Outdoor Gloss

As the name implies this is best used for labels that will be used outdoors. It has a high gloss finish with excellent UV resistance. It is best paired with our vinyl material for the most durable outdoor label.
