Much better than paper or BOPP
Paper is no less versatile since it is available in different grades and colours. BOPP has its plus points too in that the film can be very thin and yet have high strength. BOPP does not have solvents and it is resistant to moisture as well as chemicals. It can be transparent or opaque and that makes it perfect for label stickers for food and cosmetic products. Vinyl is another plastic material commonly used for stickers. The advantage with vinyl is that it is, like BOPP, available in transparent, opaque white and other colours in various micron thicknesses. You can make small or large stickers using vinyl. In fact makers of vinyl stickers Melbourne based recommend and use vinyl over BOPP due to its advantages.
Single colour vinyl sticker
The print has a limitation in that the layer of printed colour is very thin and may not have depth as well as saturation. One way to make a single colour vinyl sticker is to simply use monochrome vinyl sheet cut with a cutting plotter or laser cutting machine. It can be very effective when you need a strong outlined logo or words. It can be front-lit or backlit and the colour will appear richly saturated. There is an economy too when you use a single colour vinyl sticker sheet cut with laser or plotter. You can then arrange each individual lettering the way you want. One example is a glass window or door on which you can arrange such lettering in a circle or any other way over a larger area. Printing a sticker would be more expensive since it would need a larger sheet or you would need to get it printed in pieces. However, printed vinyl stickers have their own charm, especially when you use multiple, solid colours or halftone colour print using inkjet printers. In that case, your best bet is to go for custom vinyl stickers Perth-based sticker makers offer.
