Adhesive label

Time£º2017/12/31Posted£ºJ.C PRINTING

An adhesive label or sticky label is a small piece of paper designed to be affixed to another larger piece of paper or other object, typically by the action of a layer of adhesive on the back of the label.

The most familiar type of label is the postage stamp, which was developed in the mid-19th century. In 1935 R. Stanton Avery invented a machine to make self-adhesive labels.

The concept has since been extended into a variety of areas:

On mail:
airmail etiquettes
charity labels
address labels
return address labels
postal meter labels
certain types of postal labels
On other kinds of paper objects:
revenue stamps
savings stamps
general markers, notices, or warnings
Almost every imaginable type of paper and adhesive has been used at some point; see postage stamp paper and postage stamp gum for a more detailed discussion. Label may be produced individually, or in sheets, which case they are usually separated by perforations or rouletting, see postage stamp separation.
