Lately, we have been getting a lot more enquiries about vinyl labels so I thought an update on the benefits of vinyl labels would be useful. Today, labels come in many different stocks but vinyl labels are often thicker than other labels but more importantly, they are manufactured with a special material which makes them stronger than other labels. This special material is a form of plastic called polyvinyl chloride (PVC). In fact, it is the third most widely used plastic.
Most importantly, vinyl labels are waterproof. The labels will not peel off when exposed to wind, rain and sunlight. Also, the colours will remain vibrant and will not fade for many years.
Of course, vinyl labels are more expensive than regular white gloss labels and they should be as their benefits are widespread.
Who Needs Vinyl Labels?
Vinyl labels are typically used for outdoor use. Window signs are usually vinyl labels. The labels you see on the outside of motor vehicles including the bumper bars are also vinyl labels. What you may not know is that much of the advertising on buses is actually done through the use of vinyl labels.
As vinyl labels increase in popularity and become less expensive, they also have uses indoors. It is not unusual for vinyl labels to replace the use of wallpaper in bedrooms. Others use vinyl labels on their laptop computers. However, the predominant users of vinyl labels remain businesses for signage.
