What is a sticker label?

A sticker label is a type of label that is made of  a thin, adhesive material with a printed design on top, similar to “stickers”. They are affixed to different products, surfaces, or items to convey information, provide branding, or for decoration purposes. Sticker labels are thus widely used across many industries due to their versatility and accessibility.

What material should you choose?

Our stickers are waterproof and tearproof, no matter the material. We have 2 different materials for you to choose from to best suit your needs, with them both being equally high quality. Firstly, we have our waterproof synthetic sticker, which is made of synthetic material. Next, we have our transparent tearproof waterproof sticker, which is made of plastic material.

With  the synthetic sticker being available in either a matte or glossy surface and the plastic sticker being available in only glossy surface, the key difference between the two is that one is transparent while the other is not. Additionally, lamination, transfer tape, and installation options are also available!

Does the label come off when there’s condensation?

It is important to take note of the material of the sticker label when considering its usage for cold products. If the material is not waterproof, it might lead to the deterioration of the label due to condensation of water onto the sticker label. Thus, the label might absorb the moisture and lead to warping, peeling, and degradation of the sticker label.

Here at Lightning Prints, our sticker labels are designed to withstand just that! Our sticker labels are made of two different materials, synthetic and plastic, and both of them are waterproof, shielding the label from any moisture adsorption from condensation. In conclusion, our sticker labels are perfectly fine to use on frozen goods and will not come off when there’s condensation.

Does the ink smudge?

No, our ink does not smudge as it is highly adhesive and binds strongly to their sticker label. Feedback from our customers say that our sticker labels do not smudge even when they are exposed to water and chemicals. Our labels have been used for products which have to withstand the likes of cleaning agents, shampoo, and antibiotics, all of which did not receive any complaints.
