Gloss Transparent Polyester Label Uses
This waterproof label material gives a transparent glossy finish, so ideal for use on glossy marketing brochures or packaging. Gloss Transparent Polyester labels are commonly used to give a 'No Label Look' for postal items or for printed boxes or envelopes where a colour needs to be matched – the clear label can be put over the print on the box, etc. to give the impression of a colour matched label. This is a strong material that is hard to tear so is very durable. Also used on products that last a long time, so label and instructions stay intact – e.g. paints, varnishes, chemicals.

Glass Transparent Polyester (GTP) Label Specification
A gloss transparent polyester (PET) specifically designed for use on ‘hot fuse’ printer systems. Some slight curl may occur on exiting the printer, but this will flatten quickly. This material is primarily used in the area of ‘long-life’ durable, tracking labels. Due to the print pre-treatment, the film is printable by common label printing methods like letterpress, flexography, screen and offset.
