What Kind of Stickers are Waterproof?

Have you ever been fascinated by waterproof vinyl stickers? These versatile decals aren't just ordinary adhesives to add some flair to the back of your car, bike lock, or shop front window. Instead, they are your secret allies for adding vibrance to various aspects of life, including your business. 

From adding a touch of artistic flair to your trusty water bottle to bolstering your business's visual identity, waterproof stickers are the unsung heroes of self-expression and practicality. 

But, have you ever wondered what makes stickers waterproof, and why it matters?

What’s the difference between a waterproof vs. water-resistant sticker?

Before we delve deeper, let's clear up the distinction between waterproof and water-resistant stickers, because it's not as straightforward as it may seem.

What makes stickers waterproof and water-resistant?

The key difference lies in the materials used to craft these stickers and labels. Most custom labels inherently possess water resistance, as they are typically printed on robust polypropylene material, which naturally repels water. In addition, these waterproof stickers can be finished with a water and oil-resistant laminate.

However, water-resistant stickers can only withstand a certain degree of moisture, meaning that over time, they may lose their adhesive power and their overall design. If you're seeking stickers that can truly brave the elements, you'll want to opt for waterproof ones.

Waterproof stickers, on the other hand, are designed to conquer the great outdoors. They are usually printed on outdoor-durable polypropylene and sealed with a UV laminate. These stickers can endure various conditions while preserving both their design and adhesive side. Whether you want to adorn your bathroom essentials, swimming gear, car bumper, or anything in between, waterproof stickers are up for the task. They are built to last!

Are glossy and matte stickers waterproof?

Matte stickers tend to be water resistant, rather than completely waterproof as they can absorb some moisture over time, potentially affecting their adhesive and appearance.

On the other hand, glossy stickers tend to be more water-resistant due to the shiny finish, but they may not be fully waterproof and can still be vulnerable to prolonged exposure to moisture.

Exploring our waterproof sticker options

At Sticker Shop, we offer two different styles of waterproof and water-resistant sticker options to suit your needs perfectly, whatever you’re looking for. 

White waterproof vinyl labels

Our white waterproof vinyl labels are highly versatile and can be customised to your heart's content. You have complete control over their shape, size, material, and finish. This option is ideal for business labels or labelling items around your home. It's exceptionally durable, moisture-resistant, and eco-friendly.

Clear waterproof vinyl labels

If you prefer a clear background for your stickers, our clear waterproof vinyl labels are an excellent choice. They offer the same benefits as the white version but come with a transparent background, akin to a PNG image. This invisible background allows your label to shine on any surface it adorns, without compromising on quality.

Our waterproof stickers are treasured by businesses, parents, teachers, and sports enthusiasts alike. You can use them to promote safety signs, display information on your shopfront, or simply add a personal touch to your belongings. They are guaranteed to outlast other stickers on the market, making them a wise investment.

Selecting the perfect stickers for you 

Choosing the right sticker is a decision that hinges on understanding what it means to you and its intended purpose. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is it a label that should endure for a lifetime?
  • Will it convey an essential message on your shop window?
  • Does it need to withstand the unpredictable forces of Mother Nature?

If any of these questions resonate with you, then a waterproof label is precisely what you need. At Sticker Shop, we offer a vast array of materials, shapes, sizes, and customisation options for your stickers. This way, you can let your creativity run wild and design a sticker that perfectly aligns with your vision.
