Clear Stickers are durable against water and oils, plus are finished with a protective UV-resistant lamination for a long-lasting application, making them great for outdoor use! Clear Labels are a more economical choice and great for indoor use. Finished with a clear laminate, these labels are resistant to oil and water to keep your products looking great when on display or getting used. 


A Bit About Clear Labels

Clear Labels will be best for indoor use, and are an ideal option for labeling products of just about any kind. They are resistant to oils and water, so you can use them on body care products like lotions and beard oils. You can also find this type of label used in a way that intentionally lets the product show through the label. Which is a nice design element to consider if your product has its own appeal aside from your branding and packaging.

With all of our labels, you can choose the orientation of your designs when they are finished on a roll. This might only be a concern for you if you plan on applying your labels with a label application machine.

Check out our Custom Labels page > Roll direction options to see how your labels can be oriented on the roll.


A Bit About Clear Stickers

Clear Stickers are water and oil resistant in the same way as our Clear Labels and they are also ready for the outdoors with a UV laminate. With a bit more versatility, you can use Clear Stickers as promotional stickers, product stickers, and even car window stickers. Clear Stickers can also be printed with a front face adhesive, turning them into window stickers you can use on inside surfaces facing out! We talk about that more in our page on how we can print your Clear Stickers with a front or back face adhesive.

Compared to Clear Labels that are finished on a roll without perforations, our Clear Stickers can be finished in three variations. You can choose to have your clear stickers finish individually or on a roll, either with or without perforations in the backing between each sticker.
