Pressure Sensitive Labels
When most people think of product labels, they think of what is formally named a “pressure sensitive label” (abbr. PSL or PS Labels); however, they are often referred to as a self-adhesive label or sticker. Due to their versatile nature (and their ability to adhere to most shapes and surfaces), self-adhesive labels can be found on nearly any type of product and account for more than 80 percent of all labels in the market today.
What Are Pressure Sensitive Labels (Stickers)?
Pressure sensitive labels/self-adhesive labels are the type of labels that peel off-and-stick due to their adhesive glue backing (comparatively to a sticker). These labels don’t require any heat, water or solvents to activate and can instead be applied to a products’ surface using only moderate pressure. Therefore, this label solution can be applied by hand or using a machine.
PS Labels (stickers) are highly versatile and can be applied to most shapes and surfaces, making them a viable option for most products. With a wide array of materials these labels can be made of, such as paper, film, and foil, and a multitude of adhesives available, these labels are able to be customized to your unique application needs. Some high-performance PS label adhesives can even last through extreme heat or cold, moisture and humidity, or a host of other environmental hazards.
