Label, Finish & Adhesive
As the label is made from Polypropylene it is suitable for normal recycling when uncoated, with gloss varnish or laminate finishes (which are Polypropylene based). The adhesive is removed in the recycling process.
Backing Release Paper
This can be recycled by using a specialist process which “washes off” the silicone or other release agent allowing the pulp to be recycled. Only specialised recyclers can do this, and you would need to check with your recycling authority. Sticker Gizmo is Certified Zero Label Waste to Landfill, so all our label waste is recycled in this way.

Clear Vinyl Labels – Strong & Versatile

Our clear vinyl labels are printed on a tough PP (polypropylene) based vinyl. In its standard form the material has a nice glossy finish to it, this can be further exaggerated by choosing the gloss laminate option which also offers added protection against chemicals and scratches. Our matte laminate covers the glossy appearance leaving the labels with a smooth and almost frosted appearance. Our most popular and cost-effective finish option is the gloss varnish. This is a quick drying coating that is applied after the labels have been printed. Its seals in the print and protects the labels from wear. The material is offered with a strong permanent adhesive which is suitable for use in and outdoors. Clear vinyl labels work well on clear packaging, as product seals or as logo stickers.

How do we print on our clear vinyl labels?

We offer full colour print and white ink as standard at no extra cost. White ink is used underneath all standard colours to improve boldness and ensure full opacity. If requested the white ink underprint step can be skipped which means all standard colours would appear translucent (excluding black). White ink can also be used on its own if your design has white elements that need to be seen. A single design could include all 3 of the techniques above. Along with white ink, black ink used on its own will be opaque. If you are unsure about any of the above please contact us here.

Things to remember

If you are going to be sticking your clear vinyl labels onto a dark surface, please ensure your design is made up of colours that will be visible. The design will need to be made up of bright shades that will need to have white ink printed underneath them. Standard colours without the white underprint won’t be visible against dark backgrounds. It’s also important that your artwork is provided in a vector format such as a .eps, .pdf or .ai file. This allows us to add in the white ink underprint and make any other changes if required. Vector files give us the best results when printing. You can find out more about vector graphics in our guide here.
