SCRATCH OFF LABELS
Scratch Off Labels are stickers that you “Scratch Off” to uncover a message, prize, etc.
Our Scratch Off Labels start off as a clear, self-adhesive sticker. Then the super-secret Scratch Off material is put on top. Sounds simple, but that’s pretty much it! Keep in mind, our Scratch Off Labels come in many different shapes, sizes and colors; browse our site under “Scratch Off Labels” to see our entire lineup.
It’s pretty much like any other sticker. Simply remove the Scratch Off Label from the backing and apply it. All of our Scratch Off Labels come on a wax paper-like material that makes removing the labels easy! It normally takes about 48 hours for the adhesive on the back to fully cure once you’ve applied them.
Normally, people put our Labels on paper products: Greeting Cards, Printer Paper, Business Cards, Post Cards, etc. But you can put them on other surfaces too! Glass, Porcelain, Ceramic and Plexiglass, just to name a few. Be sure to remember that our Labels are meant to stay where you put them, so they cannot be removed once fully cured.
It’s ok; it happens to us too. If you have just placed the label, you have a good chance of removing it. The longer the label is on the item, the harder it will be to remove. Take a deep breath and slowly peel back the label. If you damage the label or cannot remove it, it’s ok! We always package a few extra labels for all of our Label orders. We have tried to account for the “Whoops!” factor.
We suggest adding our Colored Scratchers to your Label purchase. You can select the quantity of Scratchers and color options when you place your Label order. Coins, such as pennies and quarters, will work too (but they’re not nearly as cute as our Scratchers). Our Labels are durable and meant to withstand shipping conditions, so you’ll need to use something stronger than your fingernail!
We have a blackout layer on all of our Labels. Some specialty labels, such as our Hologram have a few super-small see-through spots, but that’s only if you hold it up to light. Once applied, you cannot see what it is covering. Our Zebra Security Labels also have special slits to prevent removal.
Here is how we package the labels:
50*, 100* Labels: Strips of labels in a rectangular cellophane package
250* Labels: -Most labels are packaged in rectangular cellophane for this quantity.
-The following labels in quantities of 250 are on a 3” (circumference) cardboard core:
• 2” Silver Square
• 1.5” Silver Square
• 1.5” Silver Square – Match 3 & Win
• 1.5” x 1” Silver Rectangle
• Mini Zebra 0.25” x 0.625” Pin Rectangle
• Plain Silver Security
• Zebra 0.25” x 1.375” Pin Rectangle
500* Labels: -3” (circumference) cardboard core
Yes, they are!
We do not recommend that you write or print anything on top of the label(s). It’s due to the super-secret Scratch Off material it’s made of. It won’t look good if you try it. Trust us!!!
If you would like your logo printed on our Labels, we can have it professionally done. Hit the “Contact” selection at the top of any page and we can go over all of the options and pricing. There is a minimum amount of 50,000 labels required for this option.
When we secure the roll, we use a single piece of tape. We always include extra labels in our rolls and packages to account for this, along with other mishaps that can happen.
