FiberStone® label pricing
Traditionally stickers are made of toxic vinyl/pvc, a material that is loaded with petroleum, releases toxic gases when manufactured and constantly leaches toxic chemicals. Vinyl stickers NEVER break down.
Surfrider wanted to be consistent in it’s message about clean water and a better environment and opted to print it’s hand out stickers on tough, durable, waterproof FiberStone® tree-free label material thus staying consistent with it’s environmental message.
When durability, conformability and water-resistance is needed people have turned to high priced, petroleum based film labels. FiberStone® labels combine the toughness of film with a unique soft texture that can’t be matched by higher cost synthetic labels.
FiberStone® labels can withstand the toughest conditions outperforming other non-eco friendly labels.
FiberStone® labels can be coated with just about any adhesive, from ice-bucket to removables to aggressive permanent adhesive. You can even get a plant based, eco-adhesive.
Here’s where the rubber really meets the road. FiberStone® labels perform like film or synthetic paper labels but actually COST’S LESS!
