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.

Equipment Decals & Labels, Tool Labels, Laminated Weatherproof Labels & Decals

We offer several different weather/chemical resistant materials, with aggressive and super aggressive adhesives. We also use a UV laminate to protect them from harsher environments and outdoor exposure. They can be die cut to just about any size or shape with no tooling or set up charges.

Since these labels are printed custom to order, they are also priced to order. There are no minimum quantities, but there is a minimum charge. Below is pricing based on a 2″ x 1″ or smaller label printed 1 color on laminated aggressive adhesive vinyl. Call or email for any other sizes/quantities.

In most cases, the labels are supplied on sheets, but for larger quantities and sizes they may be supplied on rolls. Normal turnaround time is 2 to 3 days once the proof is approved.

We are limited to what we can do with logos and color matches. If you have a logo or need a specific color we will need to see it first to determine if we can do it or not.

Tool and Equipment Labels

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 surface, the longer the labels are on, the better they will stick. Remember though, they are just labels. If someone wants to take them off they will come off.
