A comparison of a label having no UV lamination vs one with.

These labels have been sitting on top of my hot tub cover for almost a year now and counting. I am in Tucson, Arizona and these labels were placed in an area where they receive most of the Arizona sun and have already survived their first summer. The top label has no lamination, so it did not fare so well. The bottom label has barely faded from the original look and shows little sign of wear. The UV lamination we use is very high quality and rated for many years of outdoor use.

These labels have been pretty much in the worst case scenario situation. Under normal circumstances, I would not even recommend placing any label horizontal on the top of a surface that sees daily sunlight exposure. They should be placed vertically on the side where they will see the least amount of sun, but as you can see, even if you have to break this rule, you will be ok for a while.

Asset/Inventory Labels - Basic

Asset Labels, Inventory Labels, Fixed Asset Inventory Labels, tags, stickers

Imprints offers both basic and custom sized Fixed Asset Inventory Labels. For our basic labels we use a silver mylar material, available in three sizes. While durable, the silver mylar material is meant mostly for indoor use in a normal office environment. They will take some abuse, but if they are going outdoors or in a harsher environment, please check out our custom option.

We also offer clear protective cover labels that you place on top of the printed labels yourself to give them added durability. While a second step for you, it will save you money over the custom labels option.

The silver mylar material has an aggressive adhesive and can be printed in black, blue, green or red. Prices are for one color only and include sequential numbering or barcoding. Red will not work with barcoding unless it is just for show. Barcode scanner cannot read red.

If you have requested samples of this material and are testing them out, please apply the labels to a clean surface with firm pressure and allow to set for at least 24 hours to give them a good test. The longer they are on, the better they stick, but keep in mind they are just labels. If someone want to remove them, they will come off.

The finished labels are supplied on rolls. Turnaround time is usually 2 to 3 days once the proof is approved.

OUR BASIC MATERIALS ARE MEANT FOR INDOOR USE AND NOT IN A HARSH ENVIRONMENT. OTHER MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE IF THE BASIC MATERIALS DO NOT MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS.

For best adhesion, it is recommended that you apply the labels with firm pressure to a clean surface (91% isopropyl alcohol works best) I know most people wont go to that extreme, but if there is any dirt, grease, fingerprints on the surface, it could affect how well the labels stay on. On most surfaces, the longer the labels are on, the better they will stick. Remember through, they are just labels. If anyone wants to remove them, they will come off.
