Pressure Sensitive Labels

Pressure-sensitive labels

Pressure-sensitive labels are often called decals or stickers. They can be made on paper or film in many different variations. It only takes light or moderate pressure to apply (or stick) them to a product surface. They come on rolls to be peeled off and pressed onto a product by hand or they can be machine applied as well.

We print pressure-sensitive labels in all the markets listed on our home page.


Pressure-sensitive labels offer many advantages. They are very versatile and can be easily applied to many different surfaces in many different environments.

These products also offer opportunities to use many different adhesives so labels can be made to fit every application. Labels that have to remove and labels that are meant to never come off are all part of the vast array of applications that can be conquered using these products.

Labels should be eye-catching to the customer or provide important information to the end-user while still performing their intended function.

Applications using labels must keep in mind the intended use of the label long term and also the environment it is in when applied to the product.

Materials and inks the labels are being manufactured with must be considered.
This means finding the best solutions for the look of the label, within a budget, while taking into account the environments your product will face.

Environmental considerations

Products face specific environmental hazards that impact the materials and printing processes used to create your label. Depending on your product, Flexo-Graphics will provide solutions for:

  • Sunlight
  • Abrasion and scuff resistance
  • The outdoors
  • Chemical exposure
  • Extremely hot or cold temperatures
  • Moisture, condensation, and humidity

Film Type

You also need to determine if your label needs to be made of paper or film and what type of final look you desire.
Flexo-Graphics prints on white and different colored papers and well as clear, white, and silver films.

Adhesives can also be permanent, removable, short-term removable, or security-based. Many adhesive options are available.


Finishing the overall look of your labels offers variety as well. We can offer glossy or matte varnish finishes or glossy or matte overlaminates to provide total ink protection.
