Reasons Why You Should Consider Using Plastic Labels Instead of Vinyl
Screen printed graphic overlays and plastic labels are an affordable way to add graphics and regulation compliance to products.
Plastic adhesive backed labels are very easy to apply and remove when desired. They are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors. They are also made from durable materials such as polypropylene, PVC, and PETG. Graphic overlay manufacturers usually come with options like permanent or removable adhesives, and decorative features like foil stamping or embossing.
While vinyl labels are a viable solution for some projects— when it comes to industrial equipment labeling or product decoration its usually best to select a polycarbonate or polyester graphic overlay or label material in lieu of using vinyl.
If you need labeling you can reply on to perform in tough conditions or just look great on you product for years to come, then you will find the following few highlights helpful when making the decision on which label material to use.

If you need to apply a design to a product that won't tolerate being handled roughly, consider using vinyl stickers instead. These materials are ideal for applications where durability is key, such as outdoor signage, vehicle wraps, and window decals.
They're Easy to Apply
Both vinyl and screen printing require a lot of prep work before applying them to a surface. In addition to preparing the substrate, you'll also need to prepare the ink and apply it to the surface. This process takes time and skill, so it's not something you should attempt without proper training.

Plastic labels are a cost effective alternative to direct to surface screen printing or applying vinyl graphics. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and materials. They also make it easy to apply graphics to any surface.
