Finishes, Coatings & Considerations for Your Hazardous Materials Labels

We recommend laminating to protect against moisture and fading and keep your custom drum labels looking great. Gloss lamination is preferred by many of our clients, it has a high sheen and is very tolerant of liquids, chemicals and solvents. Matte lamination can also be used; it has similar properties as gloss lamination but provides a softer tone.

Printing on plastic substrates such as white polypropylene is very trendy for custom drum labels. Paired with a gloss lamination, you can ensure the ultimate protection during transport and storage. Plastic substrates used to be much more expensive but have come down in price significantly over the last 10 years. This seems to be the “go to” for many of our client’s custom drum labels.

Let us know what type of packaging your custom drum labels will be applied to and the environment they will be applied in. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your labels will hold up on your product. We’ve been helping clients like you for over 35 years, so let us guide you to the right adhesive and finish for your custom drum labels!

Frequently Asked Questions about Custom Drum & Barrel Labels

What’s the difference between matte and gloss lamination?

Gloss lamination is good for a high sheen, and matte lamination is good if the matte appearance is your goal (matte lamination is also very trendy). Matte lamination is also good if you want to mark on the label with a sharpie or pen.

How do I choose an adhesive?

Selecting the right adhesive is critical to ensuring your product label remains intact. Questions we may ask to determine which adhesive is best include: Is it going in a refrigerator or freezer? There are adhesives specially designed for freezer applications. Is the product hot filled or cold filled? Is it applied to a wet surface? 

What is the average turnaround time for my labels?

Once your artwork is received and we have a P.O. with your requirements, the typical turnaround time is 10 business days. There are exceptions to this so please ask us during the quoting process if you require a better lead time.
