Labels can be ordered online from a quality printing company in a variety of shapes and sizes, and supplied in rolls or sheets. Labels are as diverse as the designs printed on them. All labels, however, have at least one common denominator: adhesive. All labels feature an adhesive on one side, which is capable of bonding to another surface when pressure is applied. There are three main types of label adhesive families, and the success of your label will often depend on whether or not you choose the right none. So think carefully before you order a roll of labels, and get expert advice on which label adhesive is the right one for you and your product. Here are some label adhesives on the market today. One of them is certainly the right fit for you. Removable Label Adhesives These labels are all pressure sensitive, and can be removed without damaging the label or the product. They are ideal when selling products designed to be given as gifts, or when labels are used to seal products shut. Examples of applications where removable label adhesives could be used include curved surfaces such as test tubes, and rough surfaces like corrugated cardboard. Freezer Adhesive This type of label adhesives is ideal when items need to be kept either frozen or chilled. Different label adhesives are available that correspond to different temperature. These labels are used for items that are to be kept in a chiller cabinet of a store, frozen food, and for the labeling of specimens. Permanent Label Adhesive High ultimate adhesion categorizes this type of label, which means attempts to remove it will probably result in its destruction. Permanent industrial strength labels fall into this category as do standard permanent adhesives, which are ideal for corrugated board, films and non-polar surfaces. Highly curved surfaces, however, may not be suitable. Other applications may include direct labeling of food and wine bottles. Repositionable Label Adhesive These can be peeled off and used again in a different location, with the label remaining intact. Many types of window cling labels fall into this category. This also means that if a label is poorly applied, it’s possible to peel it off and try again. Printed labels that display your product in the best light possible can make a difference to your business, so shop around and get the best. Before you do, however, do a bit of research about what type of label – and label adhesive – best fits your product. Your company deserves the best custom adhesive labels it can get.
