Both include graphics and adhesives and are cut to a particular shape — so what’s the difference between stickers and labels? In this article, Vinyl Disorder will review these two very popular branding options and help you decide which is best for your particular situation.


Labels are different from stickers in that they tend to be much more informational. Companies and individuals generally tend to use labels to share their website address, share their phone number, identify ownership over something or otherwise impart details to others. Customized labels are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and quantities from Vinyl Disorder to achieve the result you’re looking for.

Some sticker designs can pull double duty as labels. One of the best types of stickers to use as a label is clear stickers. By using clear stickers as labels, you avoid having the sticker background draw attention away from the information on the label and allow the surface to show through. Clear stickers from Vinyl Disorder can be cut to any shape that suits your design and come in a variety of finishes to create a professional and high-quality look.

Want to draw extra attention to your label? Specialty vinyl stickers are the way to go. These stickers can also double as labels and make a great option thanks to the wide range of finishes in which they are available. Chrome, carbon fiber, dry erase, gold leaf and more — whatever you have in mind, Vinyl Disorder has a style to match.

Whatever you choose as the basis for your label, remember to keep the design straightforward and informational in order to get the most out of your creation.

Stickers are different from labels in that they serve as more of an opportunity to showcase your personal or corporate style in a bold way. Whereas labels are meant to be informative, stickers are for style. Take this chance to create a design that speaks to your personality and represents the vibrancy of your brand.

Try giving your custom vinyl stickers a more unique and professional appearance by opting for cut to shape stickers from Vinyl Disorder. The outline of these stickers follows the design of your graphic, which allows for less white space around the border and in turn lets your sticker design take center stage.

Love using custom vinyl stickers to promote your brand, event or band but hate the unsightly bubbles that form under the material when you apply them to a surface? Air release vinyl stickers are the answer. These specially-designed stickers allow air bubbles to escape through the material, which enables you to avoid that undesirable bubbled appearance. This material still comes in a variety of beautiful finishes including gloss, matte, satin and carbon fiber.

When it comes down to it, labels and stickers can generally be used interchangeably — in fact, many customers are now choosing to use stickers as labels thanks to their higher levels of durability and quality. Thanks to our premium choices in ink, vinyl and laminates, your stickers will last for years to come whereas a traditional label can fall victim to moisture and general wear-and-tear faster than a sticker would.
