Get More for Less

Roll labels are printed on adhesive paper using a dedicated printer that wraps it around a cardboard spool that fits most label dispensers. Here are some of the benefits of roll label printing.

More savings. Roll labels are cost-efficient, ideal for businesses that need to order in bulk. Roll label orders start from 250 pieces. This type of printing saves on material wastes, allowing us to offer competitive prices for higher quantity orders.

More productivity. You don’t just save money with roll labels. These labels are faster to produce and ready to apply using a dispenser, helping you save time. Employees can cut down the hours spent on manually applying labels and focus on other important tasks. Even when applying labels by hand, the type of backing for roll labels makes it easier to peel them off.

More options. Unlike cut-to-size and sheet labels, we have more materials available for roll labels. Choose from textured Estate adhesive paper, water-resistant polypropylene, or premium sticker paper.

Quality That Sticks

It’s important to select the best roll label material for your specific needs. Here are the different types of label stocks we offer to help you choose:

PAPER

White Premium Sticker Paper
This pressure-sensitive adhesive paper stock is our most popular label material. Add a gloss or matte lamination to make it more resistant to oil and water.
  • Smooth, semi-gloss finish
  • Great for general indoor label applications
  • Not ideal for writing on

PLASTIC/FILM

White BOPP Label
This gloss-laminated, self-adhesive label stock is made of white polypropylene. Use this to mark items that may be exposed to water, oil, moisture, or stored in a refrigerator.
  • Features a subtle, pearly-white finish
  • Tear-proof, waterproof, and oil-resistant
  • Not ideal for writing on

Clear BOPP Label
For a transparent “no label” look, this clear polypropylene label stock is the best option for you. To get a solid opaque look, white ink is applied underneath the areas that have a printed design or white text. Best for products exposed to water, oil, moisture, and cold temperatures.
  • Gloss-laminated, self-adhesive stock
  • Waterproof, tearproof, and oil-resistant
  • Not ideal for writing on

Silver Metallic BOPP Label
Make labels pop with the high shine of silver polypropylene material. You can give any color a metallic sheen for a unique label design. Ideal for labeling products that will be exposed to oil, water, moisture, or refrigerator temperatures.
  • Gloss or matte protective lamination available
  • Self-adhesive with metallic finish
  • Not advisable to write on

TEXTURED

White Vellum Texture – Estate #8
This warm white, textured label stock is the popular choice for wine bottle and product labels, and for handwritten mailing labels. The uncoated finish has a tactile paper feel. Add a matte UV coating to the label face to make it scratch and moisture-resistant.
  • Durable self-adhesive that sticks to most surfaces
  • Uncoated finish suitable for writing on

White Laid Texture – Estate #4
This white uncoated adhesive paper features a subtle linear texture. It is popular for labeling wine bottles, and as handwritten mailing labels. To make the label face scratch and moisture resistant, add the optional matte UV coating.
  • Permanent self-adhesive clings to most surfaces
  • Writable surface, if uncoated

Cream Laid Texture – Estate #9
This uncoated adhesive paper comes in an elegant cream color, making it the crowd favorite for wine bottle and product labels. The uncoated finish is also suitable for handwritten mailing labels. A matte UV coating option makes your label face moisture and scratch resistant.
  • Self-adhesive sticks permanently to most surfaces
  • Uncoated finish suitable for writing on

To make your custom printed roll labels stick longer, only apply onto clean, dry surfaces at room temperature.
