LABEL STOCKS

What is BOPP exactly? BOPP stands for biaxially-oriented polypropylene. It’s a variant of polypropylene (PP), a thermoplastic polymer. It’s an ideal printing surface and can be made into labels and stickers.

BOPP is essentially polypropylene that’s stretched flat. BOPP is oriented with a system that stretches it in two directions along both the width and length of your label. This is where the “biaxially-oriented (BO)” part of BOPP comes from. The result is a material with superior strength at low gauges (thicknesses), flatness, clarity, and has excellent printability.
