I had a question from a customer the other day that made me stop and think. So I thought I’d share it with you and see if it helps you out.
The question was “what is a pressure-sensitive label?”
Now that seems like a pretty basic question to me, but then again, I have to remember that I work with labels all day long. And something that is second nature to me isn’t necessarily common knowledge to everyone. That’s kind of like asking me how to tie a lasso. That’s second nature for a cowboy, but it’s foreign to me!
So I pulled out my books and looked up the technical definition of “Pressure-Sensitive” and found this:
Pressure Sensitive Label:
A face material paired with a pressure sensitive adhesive. Every label produced and stocked by Compulabel is pressure sensitive.
Material with an adhesive coating, protected by a backing sheet until used.
To simplify, this means that anything we make is considered to be pressure sensitive. This includes all of our laser and inkjet sheeted labels like item # 312107. It also includes our pinfeed labels like item # 110654, and even our Thermal labels like #620752 are pressure sensitive too.
So the next time someone asks you “what is a pressure-sensitive label?” you can tell them exactly what it is, and where to find it – at www.tlcIT.com!
Let me know if you have any questions like this one. I’ll figure out a way to explain it!
