Polyester Stickers Manufacturer
Sticker labels are often necessary for businesses, especially if you are selling products. One of the most common materials that will come up in your search for long-lasting labels is polyester stickers. There are many reasons to convince you that these are the best option for your needs.
Before discussing these reasons, you should know a few facts about these stickers.
What is it?
The main material of polyester sticker is polyethylene terephthalate or PET. Some might be of Mylar, Melinex, or Hostaphan, trade names for a specific type of stretched PET called BoPET (biaxially-oriented PET) that holds up well under extreme temperatures, direct sunlight, chemical exposure, and constant handling. It is also waterproof and difficult to tear.
These are usually self-adhesive, which means the plastic surface come with a layer of adhesive. This is usually protected by paper backing or release liner that you peel off when you are ready to use the label.
Types of Polyester Stickers?
Polyester stickers come in many variations. You can choose custom designs in any shape and size, although three are the most common choices.
Available in glossy or matte finish, white ones are the particularly suited for industrial uses where exposure to chemicals is common. White labels also provide good contrast against a neutral or dark background.
Clear stickers are desirable when attaching company names, logos, and brands on a product without having any distracting background color keeping it from standing out. Clear ones are resistant to heat, direct exposure to the sun, and can stand up to a lot of handling, so it is a good choice for machines and any products designed for outdoor use.
Metallic such as a silver polyester sticker are chosen more for their decorative rather than functional qualities. You can use it interchangeably with white or clear as they share many of the qualities. However, metallic tend to be much more attractive and attention-grabbing, so they are a good choice for appliances and promotional items.
Common uses of Polyester Sticker
While you can certainly use a polyester sticker label on anything, the following are the most common uses for it.
Because these labels can stand extreme cold, it is a good choice for labeling frozen products. The manufacturers will produce stickers for this purpose using the correct adhesive to ensure the label will stay on even if the package is frozen solid or gets wet as the product thaws out. You just need to make sure you select the right printing method and ink for these conditions.
Exposure to toxic chemicals can usually be devastating to most label materials. These are the exception, as they can stand up well to exposure to many chemicals and other toxic substances.
Shipping goods means you need to choose stickers that will stay on under constant and perhaps careless handling, and will not easily tear or scratch. Polyester stickers are extremely tough and waterproof, so it will be a job to tear or scratch them during transport. More importantly, anything you print on them should remain legible throughout the shipping process.
Retailers and distributors use barcodes to keep track of their products. They might need to have an all-around solution for their barcode needs because their products may be subject to varying conditions. It might be shipping, freezing, storing, or handling to varying degrees, so these are a natural choice for all these needs.
These are a good choice for bumper and other promotional materials because they can stick to any flat surface. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and they last for a long time under rough conditions.
Reasons to go for a polyester sticker
As you might have gathered from the sections above, the top reasons for choosing polyester sticker for your needs are:
- Resistance to extreme temperatures
- Corrosion resistance
- Wind and sun resistance
However, one of the main considerations for a user is the cost. They tend to be more expensive than other materials such as vinyl or paper. That said, polyester stickers last much longer under extreme condition, so that largely offsets the premium you need to pay. You can also have many options when it comes to the choice of printing or marking methods (laser printing, digital printing, silk-screening, thermal transfer) as well as what you print on them (logos, barcodes, instructions, tracking numbers, other machine-readable data). In other words, polyester labels are:
- Cost effective
