If we have started to make the job then our team will talk you through the next steps. Please note amendments to the order may extend your lead time.


If you require a temporary signage or want to liven up an interior space, self-adhesive graphics provide a quick and non-destructive way of improving an indoor environment. Self-Adhesive Wall Graphics are best applied to a clean and smooth wall.

We offer Permanent, Removable, Freezer and High Tack adhesives across our material range.

If you are unsure on what would work best for your intended application, we recommend ordering a sample or getting in touch.

Depending on your requirements for a job there are two ways in which we can ensure you receive the Product you require. We have the capability of ordering in a specific tool (called a die) set to your requirements. There is a one-off cost to order in your special tool.

Alternatively, if you are only in need of a small run, we can programme our Large Format machine to create bespoke sized Products on our Vinyl material.

Contact us on if you would like us to get a quote.

Yes, we have free material Samples available. 

Please note that as we manufacture all orders bespoke to requirements our samples are not of any specific sizes. To have samples available of every combination would require a lot of storage in our warehouse!

If you would like to see a specific size, we would recommend either ordering a minimum order quantity or printing a template of your size off at 100% to scale and cutting it out manually.

Currently we can offer White Ink and Lamination as additional premium finishes. Our hope is to introduce UV printing and Foiling in 2023. 

Keep an eye on the website for updates!

Our Vinyl material has been created for a very specific ink designed for large format printers so Laser or generic Inkjet printers will not be compatible. 

We have also found that Vinyl is considerably thicker than our other materials, which could potentially damage printers which are not designed for this type of material. 

From our own internal tests, we do not recommend printing onto Vinyl as print from Laser and Inkjet printers do not adhere to the surface. Please get in touch if you would like Printed Vinyl labels and the team can advise.

Polypropylene and Polyester are like-for-like materials in terms of the appearance of the material.

The main difference between the two is the thickness and tensile properties of the materials in application. Polypropylene often conforms to curved or awkward shapes better than Polyester as it has a natural tendency to curl.

We would recommend ordering a sample from our Sample Request Page to ensure these materials are compatible with your printer before placing a full order with us.

Both materials are transparent, but the Gloss/Matt finish affects the opacity of the material. 

The ‘Matt Clear’ material has a frosted appearance in comparison to the ‘Gloss Clear’, which offers a crisp and clear application. 

We would recommend ordering a sample to see which material you prefer for your intended use.

In order to get a quote over to you I do need to know the following details which are important to creating roll labels which are compatible to your printer;

  • Thermal Direct or Thermal Transfer printer
  • Core size of the roll label (diameter of the cardboard roll in the middle of the roll)
  • Overall/ External diameter of the roll (if this made too big it will not fit in your printer)
  • Outwound or Inwound (are the labels on the inside or the outside of the roll when you look at it)
  • Number of labels you are ideally looking for on a roll (we will create a roll to your bespoke requirements)

If you require us to print on the label;

  • Black/ Full Colour
  • What orientation do you need the labels to be on the roll
  • Are you using an applicator to apply your labels? If so the orientation will be important

Any further questions please drop us an email to and we will try to assist with your enquiry.

Does your Thermal Printer have a ribbon? If it does, you have a Thermal Transfer Printer. If it does not, then you likely have a Thermal Direct Printer. 

While the Roll Printer market is saturated with makes and models that can sometimes print both methods, it is always best to consult the printer manual, or your printer manufacturer, before ordering with us.

Lamination is a layer of Gloss or Matt film which protects the print on the Label from scuffs and/or water damage. As well as protective layer, Lamination provides a label with a premium finish.

Vinyl material is our most durable material and is considered fully waterproof. 

We do have ‘splashproof’ materials which can cope with a small exposure to water. These materials can become fully waterproof when laminated. 

We do offer a free Sample service if you wanted to try before you commit to an order, or get in touch if you wish to discuss lamination.

If you want to add some colour or personality into your Thermal Labels, select ‘Printed Labels’ on Step 3 of the Order and upload your artwork/ include colour references in the drop down text box. A designer will be in touch with a Proof once you have paid for your Order.

Have you seen our colour material range available on most Roll Label products? A simple splash of colour maybe all that you need.

Design & Print

If you are ordering a Printed Product from us – such as a milk bottle label - and you wish to print over this design when you receive them – for instance to add batch codes – the overprint button should be selected when placing the Order.

Selecting the overprint button informs the team the job will be printed on again and the material needs been primed and checked (again) for central alignment. This ensures easy printing for the end user.

We would strongly recommend ordering a sample of our Matt Black Textured Paper before you order this material with us. 

Printing onto black is not as easy as you may think. Most printers do not produce a solid colours, so the black colour of the material will absorb light and will create dull and often illegible print. Most printers also do not have the capability to print white ink. Many assume white in a design will print but often this is not the case unless you have a specialist printer with a white ink cartridge. 

Please order a sample before committing to an order as we do manufacture bespoke to your requirements and will not be able to accept a return should the material not work for you.

Firstly check that you have not ordered a Laser compatible material for your Inkjet printer. If this is the case, your print will not be successful.

Get in touch over email (with photos if applicable) if you are worried something is not quite right with your Product and we will investigate further for you. 

Different printers have different requirements, and we have certain materials that are primed for specific types of printers. 

The main difference between inkjet and laser printers are the consumables used to produce the print. Inkjet printers many used ink cartridges with a water/ solvent based ink. Print is produced as the ink is dropped onto a material’s surface. Laser printers also need cartridges, but they are filled with powder mixture called toner. A laser printer will use electrostatic charge and heat to fuse the toner to a material and fix the print in place.

Consult your printer manual or get in touch with your printer manufacturer for advice on how to achieve the best results on adhesive products,

Firstly, check your printer is capable of printing on Labels. Not all printers have the settings required to print successfully on Labels. Your printer manufacturer can help and we offer free samples to help you determine this.

If your printer is compatible, in your printer advanced settings there is often a way to change 'Media Type' to 'Labels'. Changing this setting forces your printer optimise it temperature and speed settings to assist printing your Labels.

At Flexi Labels we can print a layer of white ink underneath your design. 

As our ink is not 100% solid, this layer of white ink will boost colours and separate your design from the product underneath.

To achieve this, we would require a fully vectorised artwork. 

Please get in touch if you need assistance with setting up your design file before placing an order with us.

If you have a specific brand colour that you would like us to match, then we would require either the HEX code or the Pantone Reference of the colour. Please note we can only provide up to 90% colour match, but a physical colour sample to work with would be advisable.

Before approving your Proof, we would ideally like to send you a printed sample to ensure we can colour match your artwork.

Printing White Ink is a very specialist process. Only printers that are set up with a White Ink Cartridge will be able to print white. If you would like to print white at home, please order some material samples and trial this before committing to an order. Printers will often ignore white in an artwork unless the white has been allocated a special swatch colour in a design programme to help the printer identify it.

We can print White Ink at Flexi Labels. If your design contains white segments that you would like to be printed, please make us aware before you approve your Proof.

For more information on White Ink, please give us a call and we can see how we can achieve your final label design. 

Unfortunately, we do not have templates for Roll Printers. Different brands of Roll Printers will have their own software. We do try to include as much information on the product pages to ease the setting up your printer for our Labels. 

Should you need any more information on the product get in touch with us. For help on the template software, you will need to contact the software’s customer service team.

All templates are available on our website. You can find the correct template by clicking on the product page relevant to your chosen label size. We have a variety of file formats you can use.

If a template is not available, or you require some assistance please drop us an email to and an advisor will help with your query.

No, the blue line will not be printed. The blue line indicates where the edge of the Product/ Label will be in relation to the artwork. This is removed during the templating process once the Proofs have been approved.

Did you order 'X' amount of Labels per page and you are curious why you are only seeing one on the Proof? We check and set up only one artwork at a time to minimise mistakes during the proofing stages. If there is an amendment required, only one artwork needs to be updated. Once the Proofs have been approved, the artwork will be templated to a full page.

We do require artwork to be supplied with the following requirements:

  • CMYK colour
  • High Resolution (300 dpi recommended)
  • Vectorised Images where applicable
  • Minimum 3mm Bleed
  • Saved as either a PDF or PNG file (Preferably single page PDF)


If you have ordered Labels with us and you are applying to your product, please follow the advice below to ensure the best possible application. Before purchasing, it is always recommended to order a sample to trial on your product - especially if the surface is uneven or textured.

  • Store and apply Labels at a temperature above 10 degrees. Extreme temperatures can disturb the adhesive on the back of the labels. 
  • Where possible, keep the labels packed in the bags they have been sent in until they are needed. Dust and dirt can damage the labels and reduce their shelf life.
  • Clean the surface you are applying the label. Residue under the adhesive, especially oil or solvent based, may corrode the adhesive on the back of the labels.
  • When applying the labels, apply even pressure. The adhesive may take a few hours to completely bond to a surface.
  • Ensure there are no air bubbles which may affect the look or adhesion of the label to you product.
  • Should the labels need a little assistance, use a hair dryer to gently heat the label and active the adhesive. (Do not use this tip on Direct Thermal Labels as this could cause the material to darken)

If you need help applying your wall graphics, you can use the following steps to achieve a smooth, professional application:

  1. Before applying, clean the area thoroughly using soap and water. Do not use cleaning sprays as these may leave a residue which can affect the adhesive of the sticker. If you have recently painted the surface, we advise waiting at least 3 weeks before applying the sticker.
  2. Using a squeegee or similar tool, rub firmly across the sticker through the transfer tape. This will help the sticker cling to the transfer tape and removes any air bubbles.
  3. Remove the backing from the sticker. If the sticker still clings to the backing, slowly replace the backing and repeat step 2.
  4. Lower the sticker onto the surface slowly and use the squeegee to firmly smooth it into place. We recommend allowing 24 hours for the sticker to settle before proceeding with step 5.
  5. Slowly peel away the transfer tape at an angle, being careful not to pull the sticker from the surface. If you find the decal is also peeling away, repeat step 4.
  6. Step back and admire your new wall art!

Maybe you are going through a rebrand, or maybe the event you ordered them for has come to an end, the question is how do you remove the Wall Graphics without a hitch? The following steps can certainly help make your life a little easier when taking down your Wall Graphics.

  1. Using a hair dryer or heat gun, gently heat the Wall Graphic. This will help the loosen the grip of the adhesive allowing it to lift away a little.
  2. Gently lift the Wall Graphics and slowly peel away from the wall at a 45 degree angle away from you. 

Dispatch & Delivery

We have a few different options depending on the product and speed of service you are looking for. 

Our Standard lead time is 3-5 Working Days. For Plain Orders, the lead time starts the first full day from placing the Order. With Printed Products, it is from the first full day after approving a Proof. 

We also offer an Express 2-3 Working Day and a Next Working Day service on Plain Orders if you require something more urgent. Please note Next Working Day Orders must be placed before 3pm.

Your order will proceed on it’s selected lead time only after a digital Proof has been accepted in writing. As all Products are made bespoke to requirements, an approved Proof confirms the Order and allows our Production Team to proceed with your job.

Proofs are created manually by our Design Team. We aim to send these within 2 Working Days of an Order being placed (and paid for).

Please let us know if you are after a job quickly or if you are happy to proceed without a Proof as your artwork is 'Print Ready'. 'Print Ready' artworks will skip the proofing stage and so the pre-flight checks to the artwork will not be applied. 

At Flexi Labels we create all Products bespoke to Order. The lead time you have selected includes the production time of your Order. 

Once completed, your Products will be shipped to you on a Next Working Day basis. You will receive a Dispatch Confirmation on the afternoon your Order is due to leave us.

If you have received your Tracking Information and your Order was not received within 2 Working Days, please get in touch and we can contact the courier service.

Tracking Information will be sent to you in a Dispatch Confirmation to the email address on the Order once the job has been completed.
