Craftmark Polyester Barcode Labels


  • Subsurface printing protects against extreme solvents, caustics, acids and mild abrasion while eliminating need for a laminate
  • Digital printing process ensures bar code readability as well as crisp, clean company logos
  • Custom colors available at no additional charge
  • Durable .003" thick polyester material easily conforms to uneven or radius surface
  • .0035" thick, pressure-sensitive adhesive for low-surface energy materials

Our CRAFTMARK Polyester Barcode Labels are printed using our thickest polyester and a .0035” thick adhesive.

These labels can outperform any standard polyester label – and with an unlimited color palette they will look better doing it. Subsurface printing combined with our thickest polyester protects the logos, copy and barcode against extreme solvents, caustics, acids and moderate abrasion. This unique process eliminates the need for a laminate thereby eliminating the additional cost for the laminate as well as the possibility of delamination. The .0035” thick adhesive provides excellent adhesion to uneven, rough or slightly oily surfaces.

Four-color processing allows you to promote your company with a label that sports a company name or logo. Metalcraft’s digital printing process ensures even the most detailed logo will look crisp and clean.
