Our labels are known as "self adhesive" labels - but this isn't strictly true.
This is because our labels don’t simply automatically adhere to a surface (i.e. they don't adhere purely by themselves).
A better term is “pressure sensitive”; one of the key factors that affects the adhesion of our labels is how much pressure you apply when you stick them onto a surface. A common explanation in cases where a label doesn’t appear to be sticking properly is that the label hasn’t been applied with much pressure at all. We advise that when you are applying a label, that you firmly apply pressure across the entire surface of the label. This will encourage the adhesive to activate and bind more vigorously with the surface below.
We have a range of special adhesives available, which can be viewed on our website here.
