FWEDA Products and Services

All labels produced are custom based on the individual needs and requirements. There are a wide variety of materials to choose from and labels can be produced in any color and can be die-cut into any shape.

We can work with your digital files, hard copies of artwork or blueprint drawings to produce your custom label. Proofs of all designs are provided for overview before the labels are printed. In addition, your existing label can be matched – just send it to us.

Label Materials

There a variety of durable label materials that all offer exceptional stability under many conditions. Labels are tear, puncture and water resistant, pressure sensitive or static cling, and will easily tolerate extremes in temperatures and harsh conditions.
  • Poly and Vinyl Labels:
    • Poly and Vinyl are the most commonly used materials for labels. Vinyl, otherwise known as polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is a thermoplastic material, and so it can be reprocessed using heat.
    • Decals and labels can also be made from Mylar (a registered trademark owned by Dupont Tejjin Films), that is essentially a generic term for polyester film or plastic sheet.

  • Lexan™ Labels:
    • Lexan™ labels are most commonly used for:
      • Control panels
      • Instrument facings and overlay
      • Nameplates
      • Prototype labels
    • Lexan™ labels can be custom created in any exterior shape; and can have any internal holes and other shaped cut-outs, as well as clear areas for indicator lights. Additionally, they can be customized with any necessary information, printed in full range of ink colors.
    • Lexan™ Polycarbonate (manufactured by GE) allows for sub-surface printing, so no oxygen is able to get to the ink, absolutely no fading will ever occur. Sub-surface printed Lexan™ labels provide permanent protection to the graphics, they are chemical and abrasion resistant and UV impervious.

  • Aluminum Labels:
    • Aluminum labels are made of a malleable aluminum material and are typically used for nameplates and serial labels. A long lasting label solution, these labels and nameplates can withstand years of UV exposure and harsh weather conditions.
    • Typical applications include nameplates, serial labels, warning signs, machinery identification, department designations, instructional signage and more.

  • Reflective Labels:
    • Reflective labels are typically used for the construction and automotive industries, because they are shiny, attention grabbing and can be seen in darker conditions. Often times, reflective decals are used to indicate safety or warning messages since they do stand out.
    • The reflective material is an enclosed lens, retroreflective film. This material is often used with transparent inks to allow the reflective properties of the substrate to show through the ink. This material is appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use.
    • Reflective labels are:
      • Extremely durable
      • Weather proof, weather resistant
      • Permanent inks (no fading or bleeding)
      • Permanent adhesion; pressure sensitive
    • Typical Applications for reflective decals include:
      • Reflective hard hat decals
      • Reflective equipment/automotive warning decals
      • Reflective construction signage/labels
