There are a number of reasons like versatility that explain why pressure sensitive labels are such a popular choice. We’re going to cover all of those reasons, along with the rest of the information you need to help decide if pressure sensitive labels are the right choice for your products.

What Makes Pressure Sensitive Labels So Appealing?

A great example of the versatility offered by pressure sensitive is the multiple materials that can be used to create them. These labels can be printed on film, paper or foil. Pressure sensitive labels can also include a variety of different ink types. Unlike other labels, no water or heat is required to apply pressure sensitive labels. Instead, moderate pressure is all that’s needed to put these labels on products of all different sizes. This straightforward method of application makes it possible to apply these labels with a machine or by hand. Being able to handle the labels’ application in different ways depending on the needs of a business is why these labels are used in a range of industries that include spirits, food, cleaners, beverages and many others.

Other Helpful Details About Pressure Sensitive Labels

Standard pressure sensitive labels offer solid durability. And if an even greater level of durability is needed because the product will be exposed to conditions such as more extreme conditions or significant moisture, that can be accomplished through the use of specific materials and adhesives.
Another area where pressure sensitive labels really shine is in regards to the different design options that are available. These labels provide high-quality graphics, which means you can put your brand and its message in front of consumers in a way that they will notice. For even more customization, pressure sensitive labels can be die-cut to any type of shape. Essen Hillmer Graphics also offers a wide range of add-ons for these labels. Rotary screening, hot foil stamping, textured varnishes or metallics are all things we can integrate into the design of your labels.
