Materials

Labels Plus can produce signage, labelled and engraved product from a variety of materials. The best choice will always depend on the use case. We stock many of the following materials but we're happy to work with client supplied material too.

Full Colour Label Media

Full colour labels can be printed on either paper or vinyl, in any shape or size. Full colour, photo quality paper labels can be laminated with a clear film on top of the substrate to seal in the ink and protect the label from harmful UV rays and liquid spillage. Vinyl is a better choice for more demanding applications, particularly where the label must be waterproof. Vinyl comes in a variety of types suitable for a range of applications and is resistant to fading:

Standard Vinyls (Permanent & Removable)

  • Gloss White
  • Matt White
  • Clear

Gold & Silver Vinyls (Permanent only)

  • Silver
  • Gold

Coloured Vinyls (Permanent only)

  • We stock a large range of coloured vinyls, please contact us if you wish to enquire about these

Premium Vinyls (Permanent only)

  • Crystal Clear
  • Bubblefree
  • Super Sticky

Budget Label Media

Budget labels use a thermal transfer process to print up to 3 spot colours on paper, in a specific range of standard shapes and sizes (see colour chart below). This cost effective process is ideal for simple stencil-like images, barcodes and plain text on a coloured background where an exact colour match is not required.

Budget labels are only available on paper and cannot be laminated. The following colours are available for printing on budget labels:

Cyan - Process Cyan Grass Green - PMS 348C
Kurz blue - PMS 3005C Mustard - PMS 131C
Violet - PMS Violet C Orange - PMS 021C
Wine - PMS 208C Red - PMS 199C
Almond Brown - PMS 7526C Grey - PMS 404C
Brown - PMS 161C Black - Process Black
Lime Green - PMS 375C Yellow - Process Yellow
Shamrock Green - PMS 3278C Magenta - Process Magenta
Forest Green - PMS 343C Gold - PMS 8714
Colors are indicative only. We can provide a sample on request for color matching purposes.

Budget labels are available in a range of colours, shapes and sizes. The shapes we offer are square, rectangle, round and oval.

Engravable/Signage Materials

Anodised Aluminium - a highly attractive, versatile and durable, no maintenance material suitable for plaques, labelling and a wide range of signage applications. Great for exposed outdoor situations, aluminium also looks elegant and modern indoors. Aluminium is an economical option where a high quality metal plaque is required and offer flexibility with location and easy installation.

Stainless Steel - is a durable material with an outstanding contemporary finish. Hardness and handling qualities put it in a pricing bracket above aluminium but still an economical proposition.

Brass - gives a quality traditional look popular with professionals and those looking for a special and prestigious plaque. It is also used for nameplates and labelling for picture frames, works of art and machines. High material costs and manual processing requirements put brass products in a higher price bracket.

Cast Bronze - is extremely durable and suitable to any location. Products are prestigious and will last for generations. The cast letters and graphics stand out from the dark background. Minimum letter sizes apply so talk to us early in the design process to ensure best results.

Plastics - (formerly traffolyte) Specialised highly attractive laminated engraving plastics in a range of colours including metallic finishes are ideal for award plaques, nameplates, labelling, small signs and badges. They give a prestigious and quality finish at a lower cost than metals. These materials are often referred to as Traffolyte which is no longer available.

Glass - many glass items can be laser engraved, however we are unable to engrave crystal. Engraved glass has a frosted appearance when lasered.

Wood - looks great when laser engraved, with a pleasing deep natural finish.

Acrylic - great to work with for laser cut lettering or making panels, awards and signage. Can be supplied in a range of colours and thicknesses.

Plastic products - some plastic products can be laser engraved with our Fibre Mark equipment. This gives a great finish and you can get the fine detail in your logo and small text. Often used on faceplates in the data cabling industry. Where a specific colour is required we can deep engrave and colour fill.

ACM - Aluminium Composite Material has a polyethylene core sandwiched between 2 thin aluminium panels. The result is a light weight sheet with excellent flatness and flexural stiffness, which is ideal for interior and exterior applications, in particular signage.

Foam PVC board - Polyvinyl chloride. This plastic is very affordable to make and can easily be adapted to a wide variety of applications. PVC is used in a number of specific types of material, including PVC foam board. It is a very cost effective way of of producing an indoor or temporary outdoor and packaging sign.

Coreflute – is a corrugated twin wall plastic sheet made from the highest quality polypropylene material. Suitable for low-cost signage.

Vinyl - a great media for digital print and vinyl cut lettering. We have a large range of types and colours to suit all requirements. Laminate - we suggest all digital signage is laminated and have a range of laminates on hand to suit all use cases.
