Laminated LabelsCustom Printed Retail Labels
Laminated Labels are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, adhesives, and paper stocks.
Laminated labels are produced by bonding a laminate (clear plastic film) to the label face stock using an adhesive, heat, and/or pressure. While many label printing companies offer a varnish (top coat) finish to cut costs, Alpine’s laminated labels are truly laminated.
Benefits of Laminated Labels
- Water resistant
- High adhesion
- Smooth finish
Choosing to laminate your custom labels enhances the finished look, delivering a high-quality result while adding an extra layer of protection and improving the lifespan of the label.
Choose from the following finishes:
Gloss Laminate– Our “high gloss” finish delivers a glossy texture and helps colors and text to “pop” on the label while protecting the label from spills and scuffs.
Matte Laminate – Our matte laminated labels offer a soft and subtle professional finish – a common choice for breweries, distilleries, and wineries.
Polyester (Durable) Laminate – Labels that need to withstand harsh environments or handling conditions are best suited for a polyester finish. This durable finish is abrasion proof, chemical resistant, and repels the elements while extending the life of the label.

Water Resistant Custom Labels
While a typical laminate will help protect your labels from moisture, it is important to note that lamination alone will not fully water-proof your labels. If your labels need to withstand a wet environment, we recommend having them made on a water-resistant base material such as White BOPP. White BOPP and high glass laminate are a popular combination for water-resistant labels. This combination is often used for bath and shower product, for example.
