- Will label sheets work in a photocopier?
Can I run label sheets through my laser printer more than once?
We don't recommend feeding a label sheet through a laser printer more than once. The heat from the printing process can cause the adhesive to soften or the sheet to curl. Softened adhesive can ooze inside the printer or cause the label to peel off. It can also soften the toner which can make the printed design smudge.Was this answer helpful? 22
If my material is laser or inkjet only, can I use it with the other printer type?
We recommend only using the product as intended. "Inkjet only" materials may not be able to withstand the heat of the laser printing process. The high temperatures could cause the facesheet to melt or the adhesive to ooze, leading to jamming and printer damage. For "laser only" materials, they likely won't cause damage to your printer, but the ink may not dry properly. This can lead to smudging even after an extended drying time.

What's the shelf life of your labels?
Our labels usually have a shelf life of 1-3 years depending on environmental and storage conditions such as heat and humidity. However, the lifespan of our laser and inkjet labels is 10-15 years.Was this answer helpful? 75
What's a die cut?
The term "die cut" is used to describe the process of cutting shapes from paper and other materials. This process works a lot like a cookie cutter – we place a die cutter on our machines and run it over uncut label paper. The resulting labels have shapes cut into them that correspond to the shape of the die.
This means that the die line is the physical border of your label. You should design your label with the assumption that nothing outside the die line will print or remain on the label once it's peeled up from the sheet. If you want your design to go all the way to the edges of your label (as opposed to it having a white border), consider adding a bleed.Was this answer helpful? 76
Can I handwrite on my labels with a marker or pen?
It depends on the material and writing instrument. Permanent-style markers (such as Sharpies®) work on most of the materials we offer. Other writing instruments like ballpoint or felt-tip pens should only be used on our paper-based materials. These materials include our white matt, standard colours, fluorescents, and brown kraft.

What's the difference between the "clear matt" and "clear gloss" materials?
Our clear matt material has a non-shiny, flat finish that looks frosted when applied. Our clear gloss materials for laser and inkjet are shiny and completely transparent. They offer a "no label look" when applied. Read more on the subject in our article, Gloss vs Matt: Choosing the Right Clear Label.Was this answer helpful? 77
