Types of self-adhesive labels

Self-adhesive labels are incredibly versatile and come in a variety of types, all of which are suited to different industries. Here is a look at the various label types of self-adhesive labels:

  • Water-based: the most common self-adhesive label type, these come in permanent and peelable formats, and are ideal for dry storage. If exposed to moisture, they are likely to be damaged.
  • Hot melt: This is a much more resistant self-adhesive label that is able to retain its position even in moist conditions. These labels will often be used for products that are kept in fridges and freezers.
  • Rubber adhesives: These are sensitive to UV lighting and best used on products that are likely to be stored in darker environments, such as warehouses.
  • Acrylic: These are the perfect reusable self-adhesive labels that are ideal for products that will be handled often. Generally used in the retail sector on products with longer shelf lives.
