What types of stickers are waterproof

June 22, 2022

Waterproof stickers and labels can be used for a range of purposes and applications. If you need a robust sticker that can withstand the elements or be wiped clean, printed waterproof stickers are a perfect choice. 

Waterproof stickers are commonly used on packaging for branding and marketing purposes. Your product’s label can make it more appealing to consumers than your competitors’ products. Waterproof labels are made from strong materials combined with strong and permanent adhesives that can withstand any type of fluid or moisture.

Why Choose Waterproof Stickers For Your Packaging?

Waterproof stickers are best suited for product labelling as they won’t disintegrate or lose their shape when coming into contact with water. Waterproof stickers are designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions, so you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged during storage.

The Best Waterproof Stickers

Waterproof stickers are designed to resist water damage from moisture, rain and outdoor use. They are made from protective materials, with a permanent and durable adhesive that keeps the label in place.

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing waterproof labels for your product. You’ll want to make sure the label can withstand chemicals, abrasion, UV light, water, tearing, and extreme temperatures. Here are some of the key materials to look for when choosing waterproof labels.

Plastic Polyester Labels

Labels that are made of a white polyester film with a strong permanent adhesive act as the best waterproof stickers. These stickers are extremely versatile and are suitable for laser printers, and photocopying, and can be simply handwritten on too!

Transparent Labels

Transparent laser labels with a permanent adhesive are made from a clear polyester material, making them durable and waterproof. They are ideal for products that need to be kept outside or in harsh environments.

The Best Adhesive For Waterproof Stickers


Waterproof labels can be adhered to almost anything and can withstand a variety of extreme conditions without peeling, curling, or even fading. If exposed to oils and other liquids, waterproof labels will still hold their colour and shape. There are 4 different adhesives to choose from when it comes to waterproof  labels:

Permanent Adhesive:

Permanent adhesive is used for most standard labels as it’s affordable and can only be removed by solvents. Permanent adhesive is the most suitable adhesive for waterproof labels and is what we use for our collection of plastic polyester labels. 

Removable adhesive:

Labels using removable adhesive hold quickly but can be removed from the surface to which it’s been applied to. When removing the label, the label isn’t destroyed or ruined as the adhesive will stay with the label instead of the surface.  

Freezer adhesive:

Freezer adhesive is designed to hold up in very cold temperatures without peeling, so it works best when the temperature is very low.

Other Uses For Waterproof Labels

Waterproof labels are vital if you need a sticker that can withstand any environment. These labels can be used for food and drink packaging, cosmetic packaging as well as a range of other common uses.

Car Stickers

Car stickers need to be extremely durable and tough to withstand harsh outdoor conditions. Car stickers need to be waterproof and tough to withstand all kinds of weather. They should also keep their shape and colour over time.

 Window Stickers

Transparent labels are a great option for window stickers because they can withstand intense outdoor conditions without fading or curling.

CHS Labels 

Waterproof labels are ideal for chemical hazard labelling (CHS) as these labels need to be resistant to chemicals, abrasion, UV, water, and extreme temperatures. As well as chemical hazard labelling, waterproof labels are also perfect for safety signs and outdoor labels.
