REVLAR Waterproof Label SelectionLabels. We all use them for a wide variety of applications. Some are plain, some are elaborate and others are very formal. Whatever the type, they need to convey a message and they need to stick!

What Type of Waterproof Laser Labels Do You Need?

How they need to stick determines what type of label you should select for your application:

  • Do they have to be waterproof or permanent?
  • Do you want to peel them off one item and place them on another?
  • Do they need to be strong enough to take a lot of handling?
  • Do they have to resist temperature or climate changes?
