To learn more about our materials watch the short video below:
White BOPP Labels
White BOPP labels are our most commonly used material and is suitable for most applications. White BOPP labels are made with polypropylene material and have a permanent adhesive. It is impervious to water and oils, and is particularly suitable for bath and body products, as well as food and beverage products. For containers 1” or less in diameter we recommend using our lip balm material which has the same face stock properties with a more aggressive adhesive.
Clear BOPP Labels
Clear BOPP labels are a clear version of the Polypropylene (BOPP) material. It has the same water-resistant qualities as the White BOPP. Clear BOPP Labels provide 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). For containers 1” or less in diameter we recommend using our lip balm material which has the same face stock properties with a more aggressive adhesive.
Chrome (Silver) BOPP Label
Chrome BOPP label 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. For containers 1” or less in diameter we recommend using our lip balm material which has the same face stock properties with a more aggressive adhesive.
Lip Balm Label Material
Made specifically for lip balm products and available in white BOPP, clear BOPP and chrome BOPP with an aggressive adhesive to maintain a tight hold on products. This material is water and oil-resistant and won’t crease or smudge.
Gold BOPP Labels
Gold BOPP label material has the same water and oil-resistant properties as our White BOPP and Clear BOPP, but has an elegant and decorative look of shiny, reflective gold.
Removable White BOPP Labels
Removable white BOPP label 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 label samples for this purpose.
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?
Squeezable Label Material
A white, 3mil film that is better suited for squeezable applications. Squeezable label materials have proven to work well in a variety of applications, so you can be confident it will perform well for you.
White Flexible Vinyl Labels
White Flexible Vinyl labels are 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.
Cast Gloss Labels
Cast Gloss labels are specially designed for the wine industry. It is paper-based with a high-gloss white finish. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9
Classic Crest Labels
Best suited for wine labels, Classic Crest Labels are made with white paper stock with a dull matte finish. Classic Crest Labels are not suitable for lamination and is therefore not water-resistant. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.
Estate #9 Paper Labels
This is a great option for wine labels, gourmet foods or applications where a textured finish is desired. Being a paper stock, Estate #9 paper labels are 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.
Satin Cloth Labels
Our woven satin acetate cloth labels are ideal for wine or spirit labels! Our satin cloth label 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.
Sustainable Hemp Label Material
Made from the pulp from hemp plants, this facestock has a natural appearance and rich texture. It is manufactured with 50% Hemp and 50% post-consumer waste. This facestock has a smooth surface, organic look and contains wet strength properties to increase performance in moist environments. Hemp material should not be laminated
One of our eco-friendly options, Biostone is made of stone—no trees are used. This stone paper is water resistant and inherently strong and durable. Biostone material should not be laminated.
Kraft (Recycled) Labels
Kraft Labels are recycled 100% with 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.
Vellum (Recycled) Labels
A great “green” choice, Vellum label 60# is 100% recycled with 100% post-consumer waste material. Vellum recycled labels 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.
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.
The Matte Laminate provides your label with a dull, non-glossy finish. Some customers consider this achieves a more "natural" look.
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.
