Q&A: What is the best paper and adhesive to use for labeling shampoo bottles in clear glass?

Lena Saleh asks,

What is the best paper and adhesive to use for labeling shampoo bottles in clear glass?

 

Katrina Luong of The Yellow Loft answers,

I would consider the possible two options:

1. Ultra Clear Polyolefin with an UV varnish for a ‘no label’ look and feel.
2. Polypropylene label with a good glass adhesive on a clear liner (plus poly laminate on top of the label stock).

These two solutions will be best for labeling shampoo bottles.
