Surface printed self-adhesive signs and labels
Durable and eye-catching, self-adhesive labels and decals are available in a variety of materials which include PVC, Polycarbonate, Polyester and Vinyl. Used for a wide range of different labels and signs, these materials are generally suitable for outdoor usage with an estimated life of up to 9 years. The methods of printing employed include Screenprinting, Digital Printing, Thermal Printing, Dye Sublimation etc.
Plastic labels can be guillotined square, or cut to special shapes using a computer controlled plotting knife or low cost cutting dies.

Sub-Surface printed Labels, Decals, and Instrument Panels
The above diagram illustrates how Sub-surface labels are constructed. First we start with a clear polycarbonate or polyester. We then print the image on the reverse face of the material, starting with the first colour, followed by any additional colours in sequence, finally working back to the background colour and the application of the adhesive and release paper. Once the labels are finished and cut to shape, the printed image is then viewed through the sub-strate on which it is printed. This type of label is therefore very durable, as the image is so well protected by the layer of clear material.
Clear or Tinted Windows
Another feature of the sub-surface label is the ease with which we can incorporate clear or tinted ‘windows’ into the design, to facilitate the sight of instruments or indicator lights etc. Hidden or secret information windows are also possible, so that backlit information is only visible in certain circumstances: for example, in an emergency situation etc.
Sub surface labels are available in virtually any colour required, including Pantone, Ral, BS, and other colour charts. We can match virtually any colour sample that is supplied. Our colour matching department is equipped with a Spectrometers and multi source light simulators to recreate the colour temperature under which your finished labels are most likely to be viewed
Sub surface labels can be guillotined or die-cut using low cost cutting dies. In many instances we are able to save you even this modest cost, as we often have a stock cutter, which would be suitable for the production of your labels.
