Whether you’re selling a product or promoting an event or service, the lustrous appeal of these custom labels will surely outshine your competition.

Sizing Up Your Label Requirements

Cut-to-size silver foil labels make spreading the word about your business a lot easier. These individually cut stickers are printed on self-adhesive crack-and-peel paper, which makes for easy application on a variety of surfaces. You can easily hand them out at events and insert in giveaways or stick them on your product packaging. Whatever your business may be, custom labels will help make your brand stand out. Available in 17 sizes, cut-to-size metallic labels are stacked and then boxed for shipping.

Each label is printed on a 70 lb. sticker paper, a type of adhesive material typically used for stickers that are applied indoors. Metallic labels come with a high-gloss UV finish. This is the most reflective of all our coatings and makes the colors on your label appear more vibrant. Though durable and made of high-quality materials, 70 lb. sticker paper is not waterproof.
