What’s in a Name?
Sticker procurement can get pretty confusing with all of the different types of stickers, stocks and print methods. Use the following glossary to better understand stickers, labels and decals.
When a pressure sensitive stock is used for decorative or branding purposes it is usually referred to as a sticker. They generally come individually cut.
When pressure sensitive stock is used to identify a product or contents of a package, indicate a destination on an item being shipped, or differentiate items for organizational purposes they are usually referred to as labels (i.e., mailing labels, size labels, beer labels, etc…). Labels come in individual sheets or on a roll.
When a pressure sensitive stock is used to decorate or brand an item for a extended periods of time they are usually referred to as decals. Decals usually come with an implication of permanence, so you’ll often find them being used for signage purposes. Decals are most often thought of as being unprinted cut vinyl, or screen printed.
Stickers and labels can be printed in a continuous line and then rolled onto core cylinders. The purpose of this is most often for machine labelling.
