3 Tips for Choosing Label Materials

October 05, 2016

While it may seem like label materials are a one-size-fits-all kind of product, that isn’t actually the case. For this reason, it’s important to order labels from a company who excels at providing you with the very best industry knowledge, such as SheetLabels.com. At SheetLabels.com, you can print waterproof labels, temperature-resistant labels, UV resistant labels, and more.

If you’re new to using product labels, it can be tricky knowing which label materials to choose from. We’re here to help you find the perfect label material for your brand’s needs!

Tip #1: Consider the Options Before Ordering

Before you order product labels for your company’s needs, there are a few questions to ask yourself to ensure that you’re choosing the perfect labels for you and the product you are selling. Start by asking yourself the following questions:

●      Do my labels need to be permanent?

●      Do I need to print waterproof labels?

●      Will these labels be going in the microwave or dishwasher?

●      Should my labels be durable enough for changing temperatures and outdoor climates?

●      Do I want my labels to have a glossy or matte finish?

Once you’ve considered these options, you can start narrowing down the results and learning more about how each label material differs from one another.

Tip #2: Understand Different Types of Label Materials

Waterproof or weatherproof labels are fairly self-explanatory, but what about weatherproof, temperature-resistant, UV, and tear resistant labels? Or what about BOPP, polyester, or vinyl?

In short, BOPP labels are labels that are extremely water-resistant. Vinyl and polyester labels are made of highly-durable materials that are perfect for outdoor use, and UV resistant labels allow the product to withstand exposure to UV light without damaging the label. Many of these options will fall under the weatherproof or waterproof categories.

If you’re looking to print waterproof labels, SheetLabels.com has plenty of options for you to choose from. Our weatherproof labels can withhold exposure to moisture, water, tearing, and hot, cold, or windy climates. An example of our weatherproof labels include the White Polyester Weatherproof or Crystal Clear Gloss Weatherproof labels.
