We use the terms "transparent labels" and "clear labels" on our website; here's what they mean.
Eagle-eyed visitors to our website may have noticed that we have both “transparent” and “clear” labels listed on our website – and we often get asked what the difference is between the two products.
The simple answer is nothing.
“Clear” and “transparent” are both used to refer to the same range of labels. We include both on our website so customers looking for this kind of label can find them regardless of the particular term they are using to search for their labels.
The slightly more complicated answer is that we use the two to distinguish between our transparent labels for laser printers (which are “officially” named as transparent labels) and our transparent labels for inkjet printers (which are “officially” named as clear labels). For example, our inkjet transparent labels are listed as “Gloss Clear Polyester” labels and use the material code GCP, while our laser transparent labels are listed as “Gloss Transparent Polyester” (GTP) and “Matt Transparent Polyester” (MTP) labels.
