Keep in mind that there are three key elements in a pressure sensitive label stock: face stock, release liner, and adhesive.

Face Stock:  
Face stock is the material of the label that carries the imprint.  The print can be applied by methods ranging from desktop printers to industrial printing presses.  Face stock materials are typically coated or uncoated paper or films that include polyester, polypropylene, vinyl and Tyvek®.  The type of face stock chosen depends on the intended use of the label.

Release Liner: 
A release liner is a film, paper or paper material that is coated with silicone.  In the manufacturing process, a silicone coating is applied to the liner material, followed by an application of adhesive.  The face stock is then laminated to the adhesive and the finished material is wound into rolls. The silicone coating ensures clean removal of the face stock and adhesive from the release liner.

Adhesive: 
Pressure sensitive adhesives are specially compounded to adhere to a wide variety of materials. To adhere firmly to the intended item, the label must be applied firmly either by hand or by specialized automated equipment.

Important considerations for your label:
When designing and ordering a custom label, it is important to choose an adhesive that is well suited for the tasks that your labels will perform.  There are three key components to consider when choosing the proper label adhesive:  time, texture and temperature.

Time refers to the duration that the label needs to remain adhered to a surface.  We can provide varying levels of adhesives from removable to permanent.  Consider how long your label needs to stick before deciding upon an adhesive, or consult with us for suggestions.

Another important factor to consider in selecting a label adhesive is the texture of the surface on which the label will be applied.  If the surface is rough and uneven, the label will need an aggressive adhesive in order to adhere.  If the surface is smooth and even, a less aggressive adhesive is required.

Finally, consider the temperature at the time of application and the temperature range during the service life of the label. For example, if the label will be applied to a product at room temperature but will subsequently be stored in a freezer, choose an adhesive that will adhere at room temperature and remain on the package when frozen. Conversely, adhesives designed for application to frozen products in freezer conditions may not be suitable for use on a label designed for application or use at elevated temperatures.
