Roll Labels – Stickers & labels on a roll
Roll labels from RCS, a printer based in Oakham produce stickers using the latest digital printing technology, organic solvent inks and high quality foils because your satisfaction is our number one priority.
As standard the roll labels are waterproof & abrasion resistant. If you require a roll sticker that will be used in more extreme, harsher environments or with more aggressive chemicals then we would suggest using a lamination option.

60 micron transparent window polypropylene roll labels
General adhesive types – Permanent and Removable.
Removable adhesive has 3 times less bond than permanent adhesive and is therefore more easily removed without leaving adhesive residue.
Permanent adhesive will bond over time and the sticker may be difficult to remove after being insitu for some time. Removing them can be made easier by applying heat (e.g. a hairdryer or heatgun) to them. The heat loosens up the adhesive allowing them to be peeled off more easily.
Removable stickers can generally be removed easily within the first 12 months of initial application to a surface. Within this time they can normally be removed without leaving any adhesive residue. They can be repositioned, although each reposition can reduce the overall bond life of the sticker.
After 12 months, however, the removable property diminishes and the sticker becomes like a permanent sticker and more difficult to remove.
RCS protective lamination adds an extra layer and even more protection and quality to your sticker. It is available on most of the roll sticker media options in Matt and Gloss finish.
You would normally laminate a digitally printed sticker to protect against:
- heavy abrasion or scratching
- solvent cleaners and other chemicals
- or quite simply to add a more luxurious appearance / feel to your decal
Here you can choose whether you want your roll labels to have a gloss (shiny), or a matt (glare free) finish.
Customers most often choose gloss. However, the matte stickers are becoming more popular and look very stylish, authentic and classy.
Please note: The matt stickers tend to have a shorter outdoor life than the vinyl gloss stickers
