Instructions For Applying Stickers And Labels

For best results and to maximize the life of your stickers & labels, we recommend the following steps:

  1. Find a suitable flat surface
  2. You thoroughly clean the surface before application
  3. Measure out or use a marker pen to mark where the sticker / label is being applied
  4. Peel off sticker / label from the backing paper 
  5. Using an Avery Squeegee or similar product to apply even pressure from the center to the outer edges. 

( All our stickers can be removed once applied, a small amount of glue residue will be left if removed. )

Size Guide - Choosing The Right Size

In any circumstance, it is critical safety signs are clear and visible from a distance. If you can not see the danger or hazard... You will not know it is there!

Please see the size guide below for approximate viewing distances for safety signs / stickers.

 Size 100x100mm 300x200mm 400x300mm 600x400mm
Approximate Viewing Distance 4.5 Meters 7.7 Meters 15.5 Meters 23.0 Meters

All health and safety signs / stickers will require different viewing distances, but we recommend using the larger sizes where applicable for maximum vision.

Placement of the sign is also an important factor for visibility. Example: Eye Level Height, Above Head Height, Close To The Hazard etc.

Material Guide - Choosing The Right Material

When manufacturing our products, we print directly onto self adhesive vinyl using Anti-Fade Eco-Solvent Ink. This guarantees our products are of the highest quality on the market. Please see below for a detailed description of each material we currently use.

  • Self Adhesive Vinyl ( Sticker & Label Products ) 5-7 Year Lifetime

A flexible durable material with a high tack adhesive. We use special outdoor rated material so suitable for both outdoor and indoor use.

For optimal application, please find a smooth clean surface when applying stickers or labels.

If you are on a budget, vinyl stickers / labels are the cheapest option we offer.

Self Adhesive Vinyl 

  • 1mm Semi-Rigid PVC ( Sign Products ) 5-7 Year Lifetime
