How can you benefit from adhesive stickers and labels?
When you’re talking about uses for custom adhesive labels and stickers, they literally amount to hundreds! They can be used for branding, promotion, advertising, PR, health and safety, art, networking, labelling and more. The options are endless! That’s why we make sure that we offer any size, any shape, any artwork and full weatherproofing so they can be tailored to so many different uses both indoors and outdoors.
However, there are a few popular uses which stand out from the rest.
Firstly, sticker and label printing can be used as an incredible form of business promotion. Your choice of message is placed on a label which can then be stuck down wherever you like! It’s highly mobile and highly affordable. Plus, if you stick them down in the right place, you can get what you want to say in front of thousands of people every week.
Another great use as a promotional tool is to use them to entitle people to a special offer. This is a common tactic used by many of our clients who are club and bar owners. Instead of handing out vouchers, they simply hand out stickers which can be easily seen by staff. Size is also an important factor. When you ask people to think of printed adhesive stickers and labels, many people automatically think of a little button-sized sticker or bumper sticker. However, in reality, they can actually be made to virtually ANY size. Sure, they can be very small, but they can also be large enough to span an entire wall. There’s almost no limit!
So whilst promotional stickers are a very powerful business tool, there are also some traditional uses. For example, sticky backed labels are great to mark products with. Especially as they can be removed without leaving any glue residue. They’re also perfect within clubs and schools as rewards. For example, if someone does something good, they get a sticker! The options are endless. Even though we’ve listed some of the most common purposes here, the fact is that you can create custom stickers and labels suitable for ANY purpose with Discount Sticker Printing. They can be any size, any shape and suitable for any surface – from walls, to vehicles, to windows and more. To get yours, start by choosing your ideal finish from the options above.

Adhesive labels offer companies and individuals almost infinite possibilities of use and flexibility of material application. They are simple, and remain a favoured tool of small businesses to multinational corporations. A main driver in there success is their economic ease of use. Stickers utilise permanent, removable or repositionable paste. The sticker affixes itself using pressure sensitive tack which, when pressed creates a bond.
There is no need for solvent, water, or heat to activate the stickiness . The degree of bond the pressure sensitive sticker can perform is dictated by the degree of pressure employed when applying the adhesive, as well as factors such as surface energy, smoothness, contaminants, etc. These are all are relevant and will impact on the success of the sticker.
The adhesive sticker is a hugely successful product. In just 77 years it has taken centre stage in the product identification and decoration market, and future growth is predicted to be in food sectors, as well as the logistics and transport industries. One of the most significant growth areas is within emerging economies. For example, the Asian region is a experiencing rapid growth in the adhesive sticker market. Global demand is expected to reach over 50 billion m2 by 2015.
In recent years the growth in popularity of the 'no label look' has seen film face stock adhesives overtake more traditional paper sticker adhesives. This can be seen as a consequence of the desire for brand differentiation using variety of finishes and effects being used on a wide range of face stocks, including ultra clear films which popular in both the beer and wine industry to create a no-label look.
Stickers utilise a variety of different combinations of face stocks, glues, and release liners to present a base stock which makes up a sticker. These include: litho and various plastics such as acetate, vinyl and PET film and are chosen according to the needs of the sticker. There are three common varieties of adhesives used in the production of stickers: acrylic, rubber and water-based, and each can be created from an assortment of materials.
The material chosen depends on what needs to be labelled, the environment the sticker will have to operate in, and the desired length of service needed of the stick. Pressure sensitive adhesives are factory-made in 100% solid form or with a liquid carrier. The process of achieving this is by covering the adhesive on a prop, and then evaporating the water carrier or organic solvent, this is usually done with a burning air dryer. The dry adhesive can also be heated further in order to instigate a cross-linking reaction and further develop molecular weight.
