Eco-Friendly and Recyclable Stickers and Labels

Eco Friendly Stickers

We offer a group of eco-friendly sticker materials. Many have been asking us to find alternatives that would support your desire to be earth friendly as well as present your product that way. While there are many definitions of “eco friendly,” we have 3 options for you.

Eco Friendly Custom Stickers In Your Choice Material

The options for our eco friendly custom stickers include BioStone, Kraft and Vellum. Each has an environmentally friendly profile:

  • BioStone – Biostone is made of stone (no trees are used). BioStone is a inherently strong and durable material that is water resistant.
  • Kraft – Is recycled from 100% post consumer waste. Eco friendly packaging and labeling takes on a natural look and promotes your commitment to being kind to the earth with the use of this recycled material. One great way to make Kraft printing pop is to add white ink under your print. The highlight creates a great focus on your label but keeps the natural look everywhere else.
  • Vellum paper – Also a 100% recycled post consumer waste material. If the natural look is not what you want, but you want to present eco-friendly labels, vellum is a good paper option.

If you would like to see examples of these materials for your application, please request samples of eco friendly stickers free of charge.

Deliver green branding with multiple earth-friendly label materials

When customers today deal with brands, they are interested in learning whether those companies share their values. Proving that your business is responsible and engaged with eco-friendly initiatives is a good way to win the trust of these environmentally conscious consumers.

Your custom label and custom sticker decisions can say a lot about your earth-friendly stance. If the materials you select for product packaging and promotional stickers are recycled, this demonstrates your commitment to reducing your impact on the environment.

When you work with Lightning Labels as your partner for labels and stickers, you gain access to not just one option for eco-friendly labels and stickers, but several. These materials each bring a slightly different look and feel, along with unique composition, allowing you to deliver earth-friendly products in the way you choose.

Eco-Friendly Stickers and Labels: Choosing Your Material

There are four primary earth-friendly materials available from Lightning Labels. When your labels and stickers are made with these substrates, you gain an important marketing and branding advantage. They are also simply reliable label materials, ones that will make your products look great on store shelves and attract customers to your branded stickers.

Sustainable hemp label material

The latest addition to the Lightning Labels sustainable material lineup, this facestock is produced from 50% recycled post-consumer content and 50% hemp. This material has a rich yet smooth texture and a natural, organic look. Extra wet strength properties allow this label material to stand up to moist environments.

Biostone label material

With some innovative label materials, you can take paper out of the equation entirely. That is the case with the tree-free substrate Biostone. As the name implies, Biostone is made from stones, and does not involve any tree derivatives. The material is inherently strong and durable and water resistant, so you can use it for products that may not be kept in strictly dry areas.

Kraft (recycled) label material

Paper labels with an "earthy" appearance and texture are a key part of many green product packaging strategies. This #55 kraft paper material allows your company to live up to its eco-friendly goals — it is made from 100% recycled post-consumer content. Despite its rough, natural feel, the label material has a strong liner that is suitable for machine application, allowing you to produce and package items more quickly. By adding white ink under your printed design, it's possible to make vibrant imagery "pop" on these kraft labels.

Vellum (recycled) label material

Even within the narrow field of recycled paper labels, there is variation based on the exact appearance and feel of the material. As with the recycled kraft material, the #60 vellum paper is made from 100% recycled post-consumer material. It is also fitted with a strong liner to enable machine application. You can compare and contrast the way the paper options feel to determine which best represents your products.

Promoting Your Brand with Eco-Friendly Stickers and Labels

When your brand uses eco-friendly messaging, it can pay to remind customers that the labels and stickers they are holding have been produced in a responsible and sustainable way. Refreshing your labeling strategy now, in terms of both content and the materials you choose, can represent a fresh start and increase your appeal to environmentally conscious consumers.

When you work with Lightning Labels, you gain access to four different options for your eco-friendly labels and stickers, along with all the advantages we provide to our customers, namely fast turnaround times, flexible order sizes and knowledgeable, helpful customer service.
