The ideal sticky label should easily stick to a surface yet be easily removed. And anyone should be able to quickly and securely re-stick them to another surface.
The best kind of sticky label goes several steps further – printing quickly, easily, cleanly and legibly. Printing with light adhesive – not too much and not too little. Printing cleanly without a liner or backing. You want a label that doesn’t gum up a printer and cause as many problems as it purports to solve.
Some labels use so little glue, they don’t deserve to be called sticky. And some use so much, they bundle their product with a printer cleaning kit to remove the excess clogging glue.
