Our print service plastic materials
What are plastic stickers?
When you need durable labels, plastic is your best choice of material: it lasts longer than paper because it is resistant to water, tears, oil and sun. If you are using our print service, we recommend choosing a matt or gloss varnish to prolong the life of your labels.
Plastic labels are also more flexible, they will be easier to apply on rounded surfaces like bottles and jars than paper labels.
We have a large choice of plastic materials to suit your needs. White plastic labels are the most popular and clear plastic stickers are also a great option for fancy designs and a no-label, see-through, look.
What can plastic stickers be used for?
Plastic stickers are perfect for products that will be stored in the refrigerator or freezer such as glass jars, bottles and food packaging and or in the bathroom such as soaps, cosmetics, shampoos and shower gels. They will stand up to condensation and spills, so you will have a professional-looking label no matter what.
Our most resistant plastic sticker can also be used in more extreme environments for industrial usage. They remain water-resistant for at least 90 days in seawater (certified BS5609 section 2), resist extreme temperatures and have been tested against numerous chemical compounds.
Vegan and Eco-Friendly Plastic Labels
We are constantly working on reducing our impact on the environment. We have made sure all our plastic stickers well as the inks and varnishes used by our Print service are 100% vegan.
We also recently added to our a range of custom plastic stickers with eco-friendly plastics. They are made from wood pulp and have the OK Compost Industrial certification from TUV (so do our inks!). They are perfect if you are using compostable packagings and encourage your customers to compost them.
How do you print on plastic labels?
Printing our plastic blank labels yourself is easy with our free templates and software (have a look at our printing tips). However, it requires a laser printer. If you only have an inkjet printer or if you want more professional results, we can professionally print your custom labels and stickers.
What labels will stick to plastic?
All our labels will stick to plastic. For rounded surfaces such as jars and bottles, plastic is easier to apply than paper labels, as they are more flexible and comformable.
What plastics is used for stickers?
Stickers can be made of different plastics, including:
- Polypropylene: it is our most popular plastic material. It is waterproof, tear proof and oil resistant, perfect for food, beverage and cosmetic products.
- Polyester: we offer this material for our heavy duty printable labels as it is better suited for outdoor usage.
- Polyethylene: this is our most resistant plastic material, it will resist to almost anything (it is even certified to resist to 90 days in sea water!)
- Wood pulp: this is a innovative plastic-like material used for our ecofriendly labels and is fully compostable.
