When it comes to paper and film, the two biggest differences is cost and performance. Paper often has a lower price per label which makes it an attractive option for those with tight budgets, however, film is more durable and better suited for challenging applications.
That doesn’t mean that paper can’t be durable, but in comparison to film, its performance isn’t as strong. Both materials have their advantages and disadvantages – some product owners may find that the quality and cost of paper is a better fit for their project. Other product owners might need resilient labels for products that will encounter moisture, friction, abrasion, constant handling, chemical exposure, etc.
