We first divide materials into three major types.

1. Paper material

As the name implies, the paper material of the “Paper” series is a sticker material made of paper.

Since it is paper, it absorbs moisture, which can cause the sticker to peel off or discolor. On the other hand, it has excellent writing ability and is inexpensive, so it is a recommended material if durability and water resistance are not necessary. The least expensive paper sticker is the art paper sticker.

-> “For inexpensive production,” “To write or stamp on the sticker,” or “To make a sticker with a letter or stamp,” please choose paper material.

In such cases, paper sticker is the best choice.

2. Film material

Film materials of “A” are generally water-resistant materials. The smooth surface of the film material does not allow for easy writing, but it is ideal for labels for products that handle water. Commonly used film stickers are Yupo stickers. If you are considering long-term outdoor use, choose outdoor sticker options.

-> “To be used in a wet area” or “Looking for a durable material for long-term use.”

In such cases, please choose a film material.
