Are they Labels or Stickers?

I know it seems like a silly discussion, but the question of “Should I call them labels or stickers?” does come up quite often.

To be exact, the technical definitions are as follows:

Label or Sticker

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we talk about a sticker we think of labels that are advertising a product (but not attached to the product itself) or have some sort of art or design, like the label below.

A Label on the other hand is a more general term that we use when it is attached to an item or its packaging. We also use the term label when referring to a racking location label rather than calling it a sticker.

Auspect Label

Does it really matter? Not really, as long as no one gets confused by the terminology.

For the most part, Labels or Stickers are made of some sort of a material with an adhesive on the back.

Additional terms we use that come into play and add to the confusion are:

  • Tag – A label without adhesive
  • Decal – Printed material that can be transferred to another object. i.e. water based tattoo.
