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.

Tamper Evident Security Labels

Security Seals, Tamper Evident Warranty Tags, Labels, Stickers

Imprints offers a variety of tamper evident security materials. Each works a little different depending on your needs. We keep three types of tamper materials in stock for best pricing and fastest delivery. Custom sizes are available on request at an additional charge. There are also a couple other materials that are available if none of these work. If you have requested samples of these materials and are testing them out, apply them with firm pressure to a clean surface and allow to set for at least 24 hours before attempting to remove.



This is probably our most versatile material. We order it specially once a year in this color only. It works on just about any surface, including products that eventually get frozen and even to companies like Toyota that use these to cover cell phone camera lenses to prevent unauthorized photography. Supplied on rolls. Print color black.

Destructible Vinyl

Destructible vinyl is a very thin fragile material. It also works on just about any surface, but it will not work well if you are using it to seal something closed. It breaks apart in pieces very easily and can even be difficult to handle and apply. Once you get the hang of it though this material can be very effective can be printed in black, blue, green or red. Supplied on rolls.

White VOID

The white Void polyester material is very popular, but it will not work the same on all surfaces. Either part or all of the word VOID will be left behind when removed, but it really needs to be tested first to what you plan on applying them to, to make sure they suit your needs. Can be printed in black, blue, green, or red. Supplied on rolls.

White VOID Label

Above pricing is for one color (black,blue,green or red) printing.There are no other charges for the stock labels other than shipping. Set up is included as is sequential numbering or barcoding.

For the 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, etc. on the surface, it could affect how well the labels will stick. The longer the labels are on, the better they will stick. Remember though that they are just labels. If anyone wants to remove them, they will come off. What gets left behind on the surface is not permanent, It is there to show that the label has been tampered with and cannot be reused.

And remember, if none of these stock material work, we have access to a shiny silver VOID or checkerboard pattern adhesive, and a destructible reflective material. They will be quoted on request and can be laminated for added durability.
