Repositionable labels allow you to remove them shortly after application and reapply the labels without leaving behind adhesive residue or destroying the label. Since these labels use an acrylic-based “all-temperature adhesive,” the labels have short-term removal ability so they can be re-positioned or reapplied to another item before achieving permanent adhesion. Need custom removable labels? We can print those too!
The packaging is the first impression your product and brand will make on consumers. Little things can make your packaging look more professional – one of those being high-quality labels that apply straight. Repositionable labels can save you on time and resources when labels accidentally apply crooked and you need flexibility after application to fix them. This is because applying labels by hand, in particular, can result in off-centered packaging labels.
There are three main classifications of adhesives to know: permanent, removable, and repositionable. Within those categories, pressure-sensitive adhesives have different properties that vary from one to the next. However, when choosing a repositionable label, finding the right adhesive can be tricky. In short, this is where the initial tack comes in to play.
The immediate holding power of the label adhesive on contact with a specific surface is the initial tack. If the initial tack is low, it will have low adhesion, allowing the label to be removed cleanly. As a result, adhesives with a low initial tack will build-up adhesion over time (i.e. the difference between removable and repositionable). On the flipside, adhesives with high initial tack will have a stronger adhesion and bond to the container much more quickly. However, for more information or any questions you have on adhesion for your labels, contact us today.
Cari was incredibly helpful in guiding me through the process to find the perfect labels for my products. Our oil-based products are challenging to label as they resist most adhesives, and bleed through any paper labels- we are thrilled with the results and our new labels are working beautifully. I highly recommend Consolidated Label and their team for your label needs!
Great work and attention to detail, even for us small customers. I mean small. We order about 500 to 1,500 labels every year and they treat us just like the big customers. Always top notch quality and customer service.”
