Labels come in three different types. 

Pressure sensitive labels are on a roll and by using label dispensers allow your employee to work faster by presenting labels for quick pick and stick action.  Label dispensing applicators allow for better placement.

Plain labels are supplied in single sheets at a much lower cost and can be printed on in-house ink jet or laser printers.  Adhesive is applied with a label gluer or paster. Point of sale signage are generally glued with label gluers.

Pre-gummed labels use label moisteners to reactivate the dried adhesive. These types of labels can also be printed in-house and are produced at a fraction of the cost of pressure sensitive labels.
