Eco-Friendly Custom Stickers and Product Labels

Eco-friendly custom stickers
Recycled custom die cut stickers
Recyclable custom sticker rolls

EcoEnclose is proud to offer two earth-conscious custom sticker and label lines: Zero Waste and 100% Recycled. Both of our eco-friendly lines are 100% recycled AND fully customizable - the only difference is in the liner.

Zero Waste Stickers and Labels: EcoEnclose is thrilled to provide the world's most sustainable sticker option. This line can be made with 100% post-consumer waste and they arrive on a unique and innovative zero waste release liner that is 100% recycled AND 100% curbside recyclable. Traditional release liners have a thick silicone coating that can only be recycled by a handful of specialized operations. Our Zero Waste liners have a thin UV coating that imparts the necessary release properties. The coating is so thin the liners can be recycled with standard copy paper. This sticker line comes standard on rolls, is available in three facestock options, and has a minimum order quantity of 1000 stickers. 

Did you know we recently increased the strength of our Zero Waste Sticker and Label Adhesive? It now forms a permanent bond to 100% recycled paper and corrugate. Check out our video to see for yourself!

100% Recycled Stickers and Labels: This line is made with 100% post-consumer paper and a recycle compatible adhesive. However, they arrive on a standard, silicone coated release liner. We offer a Line Take-Back Program to help keep these liners out of the landfill. These stickers are available on sheets, rolls, and as individual die cut stickers. Our sheet stickers have a minimum order quantity of 250 and our rolls and die cut stickers have a minimum order quantity of 1000. 

Custom shape and size stickers and labels are available upon request. Fill out the contact form below or contact us at stickers@ecoenclose.com for a custom quote.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between Zero Waste and 100% Recycled?

Zero Waste Stickers and Labels: 100% recycled (100% post-consumer) facestock, recycle compatible adhesive and our unique Zero Waste release liner, which is recycled and curbside recyclable. 
 
100% Recycled Stickers and Labels: 100% recycled (100% post-consumer) facestock, recycle compatible adhesive and a standard silicone-coated release liner made with virgin paper.
 
Silicone release liners are extremely difficult to recycle. A handful of paper pulpers (like Fox River Fiber Company in Wisconsin) are able to de-siliconize liners so the paper can be repulped back into new liners. Additionally, waste-to-energy facilities like Convergen accept this material for the production of fuel pellets. EcoEnclose does offer a Line Take-Back Program, through which you can ship any clean, traditional (i.e. silicone-coated) release liners to our warehouse and we have them recycled into fuel pellets.
 
Our Zero Waste Sticker and Label line is the more sustainable of the two, and in fact, we believe it is the most ecofriendly sticker on the market today. Both sticker lines come standard on 100% post-consumer paper with a recycle-friendly adhesive; however, the Zero Waste Liner is superior because it is made with 100% post-consumer waste and you can recycle it along with all of your paper. This means no resources are being used to ship it to our warehouse (and then from our warehouse to Wisconsin). Additionally, instead of the liners being repurposed into fuel pellets, they can be recycled back into paper-based products.

Summary

If you are looking for the most sustainable custom stickers available, this is it! These innovative stickers feature our Zero Waste Liner – so the entire product is 100% recycled and curbside recyclable.

These stickers are on traditional, silicone-coated release liners that are not curbside recyclable. They are, however, more affordable and have low minimum order quantities.

Why Two Sticker and Label Options?

Our Zero Waste Stickers and Labels are more sustainable than our 100% Recycled Stickers and Labels. However, they are currently more expensive and have higher minimum order quantities. We carry both lines to ensure that companies of all sizes have eco-friendly options available to them.

Delivery & Printing Method

Our Zero Waste Sticker Line comes standard on rolls. Die cut and sheet stickers are available.
  • Low volume Zero Waste stickers are printed with a digital printer using water-based inks.
  • High volume Zero Waste stickers are printed flexographically using water-based inks.
Our Recycled Sticker Line is available on sheets, rolls, and individual die cut.
  • Sheets are printed on commercial laser printers using toner. This type of ink “sits on top” of our 100% post consumer material, resulting in a vibrant print.
  • Custom sticker rolls and individual die cut stickers are printed with a digital inkjet printer using UV ink. This ink absorbs into our 100% post consumer material, resulting in a comparatively weathered, rustic or “faded” look.

Art Guidelines

Dimensions:
 
Safe Zone = This is the zone in which all essential information on a sticker should remain, such as text, logos or critical design elements. The area outside the safety zone is for background color and bleed. The reason for the safe zone is that there can be some shifting in printing. Everything that is within the safe zone is guaranteed to be printed within the actual size dimensions. 
 
Cut Line = This represents the edge of your finished sticker, or the actual size of the sticker you ordered.
 
Bleed = Artwork (such as background color or design) that goes to the edge of the sticker should extend to the Bleed line. This creates a tolerance that ensures the background doesn’t get cut off in production. 
 
For Zero Waste Stickers and Labels:
  • Our Safe Zone is the is the actual sticker size minus 0.0625”
  • Our bleed extends 0.0625" beyond the cut line
For 100% Recycled Stickers and Labels:
  • Our safe zone is the actual sticker size minus either 0.25” (for sheet stickers) or 0.125” (for roll or die cut stickers)
  • The bleed extends 0.25” (for sheet stickers) or 0.125” (for roll or individual die cut labels) beyond the cut line
File Type: PDF is preferred. AI, EPS, PSD, TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG are also accepted.
 
Resolution: The minimum resolution required for a clear, high-quality print is 300 DPI. We can print something with a lower resolution but we cannot guarantee its quality.
 
Color: The best color mode for printing is CMYK. We know that some people set their files up in RGB, and if your files are in RGB we will do our best to convert them accurately.
 
Multiple Designs for Same Size Sticker: Multiple designs can go towards one minimum order quantity. Contact stickers@ecoenclose.com for more details.
 
Digital Proof: You'll typically receive your digital proof within 24-48 hours of us receiving our artwork. Reproofing (if you have issues with the digital proof or we have concerns about your artwork) can take an extra 2-3 days. At times we can offer a rush service. Please contact us to learn more at stickers@ecoenclose.com.

Liner Take-Back Program for our 100% Recycled Sticker Line

  1. Save the packaging you receive your 100% Recycled stickers or labels in. 
  2. As you use your stickers and labels, save CLEAN liners in this packaging. Remove the matrix, or any sticker or adhesive material that remains on your liner.
  3. When you are ready, contact us for a return shipping label to send your package to our warehouse at 280 South Taylor, Suite 200; Louisville, CO 80027. Contact us via support@ecoenclose.com, 888.445.6575, or via chat. 

We have structured our Liner Take-Back Program to minimize waste. This is why we are asking you to save and reuse your original packaging, rather than our sending out single use packaging to store and ship these liners. If you aren't able to save your original packaging, you can use any other packaging you have on hand, or contact us and we will send you a mailer.
