Make Your Own Frosted Etch Labels

We produce quality frosted labels with a silver etch finish for both business and home users. Our frosted labels are supplied with a matt finish on a permanent adhesive. These are supplied on sheets as standard but we can cut individually if required.

Metallic flakes make for a unique look

These waterproof frosted labels are made from a specialised vinyl with a crystal etch effect. Ideally stuck to glass, these can add value to your products at a fraction of the cost of actual glass etching.

Also known as etched decals or etched glass stickers within the architectural industries, these can be placed onto windows, doors and glass/perspex partitions so that people can see them and do not bump into them, a bonus for health and safety.

We print using semi-transparent inks, so please note that if these etched look labels are stuck onto a dark surface the print will be less visible.

If you require, we can print an opaque white ink behind your design to make it stand out, or just print in white ink if that’s your intended design.

You’ll need to submit your artwork to us with a white ink layer if you require this option as it’s not standard when ordering. Please read our artwork instructions for setting up a white ink.

If you’re looking for a silver label, we produce various metallic silver labels also.

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

    Frosted Labels

    Our frosted sticky labels can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. They are available with a classy matt finish with glitter effect.

    All our frosted labels are printed with eco-solvent inks which are themselves completely waterproof and offer a level of scratch and UV resistance.

    Ideally used for product labelling and glass marking, they can also be used throughout hundreds of other industries. They look great when stuck to glass or metal surfaces, especially aluminium.

  • Adhesives

    Our etched waterproof labels come with a permanent adhesive only.

    The adhesive will stick to all smooth surfaces except for some low energy plastics such as car bumpers and ABS plastics.

    If you are unsure, please order some material samples to test.
