I need some labels – do you have different types of finish/adhesive/background?

Label material has two layers: the self-adhesive part and the backing sheet.

    The adhesive sheet comes in four surface finishes:

  • Vellux (like paper)
  • MC90 (a matt coated finish)
  • gloss
  • high gloss.

If the item is to be written on, choose vellux or MC90; if you want a gloss finish, choose accordingly; otherwise just choose MC90. We can also print on label stock that is coloured (pastels and intensives), metallic or can create a background wash colour for you.

    Adhesives themselves comes in three types:

  • supertack
  • permanent
  • removable

If the item is to be removed later, chose removable; if the item is to be stuck to a non-paper surface (e.g. plastic folder), choose supertack; otherwise just choose permanent.

    Backing sheets come in three types:

  • solid back
  • score back
  • crack back.

If the item is to be kiss cut, then solid back is best; if the item is to be cut down to a small label size (e.g. smaller than A6) than crack-back may be best; scoreback is suitable for larger labels.

We can also print on lickable gummed paper in a range of colours.

If you aren’t sure what you need please ring us and ask for some samples.
