Labelling is an essential part of manufacturing, storing & branding. Businesses use labels everywhere, from identifying the products to branding them. One of the most common types of labels used today is Vinyl Labels.
There are many functional & aesthetical advantages of using vinyl over other choices. However, before we discuss that, let’s first talk about the history of vinyl labelling.
A Brief Insight into the History of Vinyl Labels
The origin of label printing is as old as the 1800s, back then we used a process called lithography. We used moisture-activated gum to stick colourful paper labels on products. Nowadays we use much more advanced labels, primarily vinyl. The use of vinyl in labels, first started in the 1940s, using a process called Lexicography.
Due to its resistance to physical & chemical damage, Vinyl Labels have become very popular amongst manufacturers & suppliers.
Benefits of Using Vinyl Labels
As stated above, there are many benefits to using Vinyl Labels for your products. These advantages make vinyl one of the best choices for your labelling needs.
Simple & Efficient
A picture is worth a thousand words. Not only that, but pictures can often be more descriptive than simple words. And there is no better option for putting up pictures on your labels than vinyl. Simply pick up a label, remove the protective cover & stick it on the surface. Therefore, using a Vinyl cover not only saves space but also time & money.
Due to its unique properties, Vinyl is immune to the effects of moisture, poor weather conditions & temperature change. Water & oil do not affect a vinyl label, so they can easily be used in places with regular rain or kitchens.
In addition, vinyl stickers are also immune to the effect of temperature changes. They can be used on a product that gets hot or cold, without the label getting damaged.
Compatible With a Variety of Surfaces
Vinyl stickers can support a wide variety of information, from plain text to complex graphics. They can also be removed easily & resist chemical & water damage. This makes vinyl labels, a great choice for most types of surfaces & items.
Flexible & Stretchable
Unlike other label materials, like – Paper, Polyester, Polypropylene and Polyimide, vinyl is extremely flexible. This allows vinyl labels to be conformed around uneven surfaces like tubes, rivets, nuts, etc. Making Vinyl Labels is very popular in the case of pipelines, tools, fleet decals, etc.
As we said above, the popular choice for outdoor labels is vinyl. This isn’t only because of its ability to resist weather and temperature changes. One more reason is that it can resist damage from UV rays for a long time.
Most outdoor labels with thermal printing generally fade away after a couple of years due to UV damage. However, Vinyl is rated to resist UV fade for up to 8 to 11 years.
Lastly, one of the most important advantages of vinyl labels is cost. Unlike any business, your primary objective is profit & cost reduction. That’s where vinyl comes in. Although it has a bigger production cost than many other types of labels, due to its durability & ability to depict a variety of graphics, vinyl provides a far greater Return on Investment than any other label.
