Protecting Your Labels In Summer

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Yes, even labels can be affected by the summer sun!

We advise our customers to keep their labels in the original wrapping and to store them in a cool, dry place to help prevent any damage that might make them unusable in the future.

Heat can damage labels in two key ways:

1. Exposing labels to heat can cause the adhesive to harden, which may make them more difficult to remove from the sheet and to apply to a surface. It may also affect the long term use of the label.

2. Laser labels contain moisture, which helps the toner to bond to the sheets properly. When the sheets are exposed to heat, this moisture dries up and when the labels are printed the print quality will be reduced and may also rub off quite easily.
