Label Materials Need To Benefit Your Products And Printer!

April 02, 2013

Choosing labels is about how the label material benefits your product. Depending on the specific needs of your product, it may alter your label material choices.

If your products face extreme hot or cold temperatures you should try the White Uncoated All Temperature material.

When you need super sticky printed labels that are durable, tear-resistant and weatherproof, the High-Tack polyester material is an ideal choice.

Are you looking to add an elegant pop of color to your product packaging? Our pastel materials are perfect for adding a subtle hint of color.

What your labels are used for is only the beginning of how to determine the best label material for all your labeling needs. You also need to take into consideration what type of printer you’re using. The two types of printers are:

  1. Laser Printers
  2. Inkjet Printers

Laser printers use toners instead of ink. Toners are actually powders, which are heated up and fused into the material that’s being run through the printer. Laser printers are perfect for using the polyester materials, foil labels and even Spectacle® laser labels.

The second type of printer used is an inkjet printer. Inkjet printers use ink from cartridges. The ink is printed on top of the material being run through the printer. Some of our inkjet products include the Spectacle® Inkjet material and the White Gloss Inkjet material.

Choosing the perfect label for your project is indeed based on a number of circumstances. Does your product interact with cold temperatures, is your product going to be placed outdoors or do you need your product to have a pop of color?

Don’t be concerned if you have an inkjet printer and you would like to use polyester printed labels for your products. The polyester products are customer favorites and are in high demand! They’re durable, tear-resistant and weatherproof. If you have an inkjet printer, simply have do the printing for you! offers two options for their printed label customers. The two options are:

  1. Printed labels on a sheet
  2. Individually printed labels
