Professional Label Materials for Any Product or Brand

Paper or Film Labels

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.

Label Material Options

Paper Label Materials

Less lustrous than film. However, a finish can add protection & sheen. Popular paper stock includes glossy white, metalized silver, matte.

Durable for most indoor applications. A laminate finish is recommended to provide moisture & scuff resistance.

Film Label Materials

Available in white, clear, & foil. White underprinting is typically done for clear and foil labels to make artwork opaque.

Moisture & abrasion resistant. Performs well with most indoor applications & some outdoor. A laminate finish increases durability. Also see permanent labels and repositionable labels.
