Make Your Own Clear Labels on Waterproof Vinyl

We produce quality clear labels & stickers on a waterproof vinyl for both business and home users. Our clear labels are supplied on approximately A4 sheets with a glossy or matt finish. These transparent vinyl labels are available with either a permanent adhesive and can be custom cut to any shape or size.

Printed labels for jars?

These look great on homemade produce in glass jars or bottles. They’re easy to peel and have a quality adhesive that is also water resistant.

If you’re looking for that no-label look, these are the labels you’re looking for. The gloss labels have a near optically clear finish, which when placed on a product makes it hard to see that it’s a label from a close distance. The Matt finish has a slight diffusion to the material, whilst being clear you will see more of the label on the surface it’s placed on giving that awesome chic look.

Always in stock, we carry material for all custom clear labels

We carry stock of both clear gloss and matt waterproof vinyl so we are always ready to produce your see-through labels. We can offer a white ink under-base so that your labels stand out when placed on dark backgrounds. To add this, simply select it in the product options.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a really fancy clear label, take a look at our frosted labels.

To order your labels, simply fill in the options above and select how to supply your artwork. You can either upload a file or design them directly online using our dedicated label designer.

    Material Description

    Clear Labels

    Our clear waterproof vinyl labels are made from a 70 micron thick clear vinyl with either a quality gloss or matt finish. With excellent durability and smoothness, your printed labels & stickers will look fantastic.

    Supplied on approximately A4 sheets as standard but can also be cut individually if required for a small fee.

    Used mainly to label an assortment of products in varying industries, they are a true multi-purpose translucent label.

    These labels are resistant to water damage, resistant to UV and will stay intact whatever the weather. You can instantly design your labels online or submit your own artwork. If you would like to submit your own artwork, please read our artwork instructions located in the help menu.

  • Adhesives

    These clear labels are supplied with a permanent adhesive. This adhesive is waterproof and is nice and strong, giving a firm grab on most products.

    If you’re sticking these to a low energy plastic, we recommend to order some free material samples first to check suitability as some plastics have a high silicon content making labels difficult to stick.

    Clear / Translucent Labels

    Using custom designed sticky labels means you only have your imagination to limit the projects. Whether you are a business, a DIY or crafter or a super-organised home ninja, there’s a whole host of uses for clear printed labels. The process for getting your clear or translucent labels printed takes just a few steps, making it one of the easiest ways to get the labels you need.


    Need a clear label?

    Although on many occasions, you may want an opaque label, there are some occasions when only a translucent label will do, such as clear bottle labels for a branded water company. If you want your sticker to stand out and scream for attention, in the majority of cases, an opaque sticker will be a far better option. However, if it’s a logo for a product, a label for a jar or even a window sticker you might find that a clear label is a far better option. Using a clear label means only the printed parts will be seen, thereby not blocking the product underneath from being on view.

    How to design your clear sticker labels

    Once you’ve decided that a clear sticker will be the most suitable choice, you need to create the design. You will need to find the page of the product you want – there’s lots of choice over shape and size as well we the type of sticker you want – and then select ‘design online’. There’s an easy to follow tutorial which shows you how to upload your images and centre them correctly. The template indicates which areas will be cut off and where the ‘safe zone’ is, so you can be sure that the design you want will be in the right place.

    Materials used

    If you’ve chosen a translucent waterproof label, the materials used will be extremely robust and resistant to the elements. You can select either a high shine glossy finish or a matt effect for your clear waterproof labels, to match the intended destination for your label. Not every surface suits the extreme shine of a glossy label. The sticker itself will be printed using 70 micron vinyl, a tough and durable material which has excellent waterproofing qualities, ideally used as clear waterproof labels for glass jars or bottles. The inks used are eco-solvent which means they are not just entirely waterproof, but also have great resistance against scratching and UV light, helping to protect the sticker even further.

    Choosing the colour palette

    There are different design options which can affect the exact tone of the colour so it’s important that you check the technical specifications before going ahead. Stickythings Limited use CMYK mode to print in, and if designs are received in any other format, they will be automatically converted. This means that if you use the alternative RGB colour scale to design your image, there could be some difference in the final proof.

    When using the colour black, you will also need to ensure you’ve selected pure CMYK and not a combination as this will dilute the end result. If you don’t follow the above printing guidelines, the final image may lack definition or not be as clear and sharp as you might hope. We know that this kind of technical specification can sometimes be a bit confusing so if you’re not exactly sure whether you’ve done it the right way, just drop us a line and we’d be happy to help.

    We don’t hang around!

    Once you’ve sent your design over to us, the proofing will be complete within just a few hours, ready for you to approve. Once you’ve check the electronic PDF proof, we’ll get your translucent stickers printed and out to you quickly.

    Conclusion

    Translucent labels can provide the finishing touch to a number of different projects, adding elegance to any design. The end result will be tough and waterproof yet delicate and accurate, a budget-busting addition for both home and business.
