Eco-Friendly Stickers and Product Labels


YES! Stickers and Product Labels CAN be eco-friendly. EcoEnclose is proud to offer not one, but TWO earth conscious options for stickers and labels: Zero Waste Stickers and Labels and 100% Recycled Stickers

Zero Waste Stickers and Labels: EcoEnclose is thrilled to provide the world's most sustainable sticker option - our Zero Waste Stickers and Labels. Not only can they be made with 100% post-consumer waste, they also 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. They can only be recycled by a handful of specialized operations that have the equipment needed to separate the silicone from the paper. These babies are different. These liners have a thin UV coating that imparts the necessary release properties; however, this coating is so thin that the liners can be recycled along with standard copy paper. In fact, you can even write on the liner with a ballpoint pen! Currently, we offer this in three facestock options (100% recycled paper, laminated recycled paper, and BOPP), with minimum order quantity of 1000 stickers.

100% Recycled Stickers: We offer a second sticker option as well - Our 100% Recycled Sticker line. These stickers and product labels are made with 100% post-consumer paper and feature a recycle compatible adhesive. However, they arrive on a standard, silicone coated release liners. We offer a liner take back program to help companies keep their liners out of the landfill. These stickers are 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 shapes, sizes and styles are available on request. Please contact us at stickers@ecoenclose.com if you are looking for Stickers and Product Labels that aren't available here.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between your Zero Waste Stickers and Recycled Stickers?

We're glad you asked! EcoEnclose currently offers two lines of stickers and labels:
 
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. 
 
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-siliconise liners so the paper can be repulped back into new liners. Additionally, waste-to-energy facilities like Convergen accept this material for 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 line is the more sustainable of the two, and in fact, we believe the Zero Waste Sticker and Label line is the most ecofriendly sticker on the market today. They both come standard on 100% post-consumer paper and 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.   

Here's a chart summarizing the differences between our two lines.

Summary

Our recommended sticker!
If you are looking for the most sustainable 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, making them a good option for some companies.

Why do you carry both sticker and label options?  

Great question! Our Zero Waste Stickers and Labels are more sustainable than our Recycled Stickers and Labels. However, they are currently more expensive, have higher minimum order quantities and more limited shapes and sizes.
 
We carry both sticker and label lines to ensure that companies of all sizes have ecofriendly options available to them. Over time, we will work to expand our Zero Waste Stickers and Labels to include more options and lower minimum order quantities. 
 

Lead Times

Zero Waste Stickers and Labels: Our standard lead time is 2 weeks. This means that stickers will ship 2 weeks after the digital proof is approved by customer. 
 
Recycled Stickers Stickers and Labels: Our standard lead time is 1 week. This means that stickers will ship 1 week after the digital proof is approved by the customer.
 
You'll typically receive your proof withing 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.

Die Cut, Rolls and Sheet Stickers

Our Zero Waste Sticker Line comes standard on rolls. Die cut stickers are available. Contact us at stickers@ecoenclose.com for information.
 
Our Recycled Sticker Line is available on Sheets, Rolls and Die Cut. 
  • Sheets are printed with toner ink. This type of ink “sits on top” of our 100% post consumer material, resulting in a vibrant print.
  • Rolls and individual die cut stickers are printed with an UV ink digital process. This ink absorbs into our 100% post consumer material, resulting in a comparatively weathered, rustic or “faded” look.

Art Guidelines

When you place your sticker order, you'll be asked to upload your art file. If you have any issues uploading your art file, please email stickers@ecoenclose.com. This section describes guidance to help ensure your art file best aligns with our stickers, processes and printing capabilities.

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. 

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. 
 
Cut Line = This represents the edge of your finished sticker, or the actual size of the sticker you ordered.
 
For ZERO WASTE stickers and product labels:
  • Our Safe Zone is the is the actual sticker size minus 0.0625”
  • Out bleed extends 0.0625" beyond the cut line. 
For RECYCLED stickers and product 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: There are several different file formats that we can accept including: AI, EPS, PDF, PSD, TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG. The preferred file formats are PDF. Resolution: The minimum resolution required for a clear, high-quality print is 300 DPI. We can always 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.

Liner Take Back Program for our Recycled Sticker Line

We have launched a Take Back Program for EcoEnclose liners:

  1. Save the packaging you receive your 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.
