What Sticker Material is Right for You

Posted by StickerDot on October 07, 2020

Stickers come in different textures, finishes, and uses. You just have to make a wise decision and choose the right material based on your needs. If you have no single idea what you need, We’ll give you the characteristics and common uses of a few of our best-selling label materials and help you understand each and one of them.

Paper based stickers

When it comes to indoor and temporary use, you should use paper labels for your product boxes and other packaging. You don’t have to spend on vinyl labels and save a couple of bucks that make it a cheaper option than vinyl. The only downside is that it is not that durable and can be ripped easily that is why it is best advised to just use it indoors. Paper stickers have a wide variety and available in three finishes -- matte, glossy, and uncoated. If you are on a tight budget and aim to provide beautiful packaging for your customers, this material is for you.

Vinyl based stickers

Polypropylene is responsible for making vinyl durable. As a result, it is waterproof, weatherproof, tear-resistant, and scratch-resistant that is commonly used in cap labels, electronics, cosmetics, and packaging for frozen products. Vinyl stickers may be a bit expensive compared to paper labels but don’t fret because if you choose a printing company that offers affordable product labels, the price gap is hard to distinguish.
