There are basically three types of clear round labels to choose from, Clear Round Package seals on rolls (Standard Permanent, Strong Super Stick Adhesive or Very Strong Extreme Stick Adhesive), Clear Round Package seals on sheets, and Clear Round Frosted Wafer seals on rolls.

Wafer seals are used primarily for sealing mailing pieces, and Clear Round Labels are used to seal retail, medical, pharmaceutical, and food packages, although they may also be used on mailings.

 

 The clear round package sticker seals are used for sealing boxes and packages for retail applications such as pharmacy, medicine, specialty food items, cosmetics, electrical components, hardware, accessories, toys, and other retail boxes you may need to seal.  The clear frosted wafer seals are only for use in mailing applications such as mailing a catalog or brochure.  Our wafer seals meet all current USPS regulations.

Clear round labels and clear round stickers 

The first type of clear round label we will look at is the standard adhesive Poly Clear Round Label, also known as Clear Round Box Seals.  These are manufactured on rolls without an inner cardboard core, and depending on the adhesive, they can be applied by machine or hand applied.

There are many applications and projects that require the use of clear round labels.  In the electronics and media packaging areas alone, they are used as package seals, DVD case seals, CD Jewel case seals, CD Sleeve seals, Software package seals, and Blu-ray disc case seals.  In retail environments they can be used as a tamper resistant sticker to seal almost any retail packaging, from cosmetics to perfume to electronic components to pharmaceutical and health care products. 

When applied to a product these clear labels can help "tamper proof" a product that would otherwise be easy for a casual shopper to open in the store and render it a used or open box item, putting the integrity and contents of the product box into question. Many software companies send their discs out in paper or Tyvek disc sleeves that are sealed with a clear or white label.  This can help prevent tampering with the disc and assures the end user that they are receiving a new disc. 

When sealing a media case or retail product sometimes it is important to use a standard permanent adhesive label that is sticky enough to keep the case securely closed and tamper free, but not so sticky that the end user must destroy the case just to get it open.  On the other hand, depending on the product and retail environment you may wish to use our "Super Stick" permanent adhesive or our "Extreme Stick" label seals to prevent tampering or loss.  The Extreme Stick seals tend to hold up best when shipping products to many far away locations in boxes that may tend to come open due to rough shipping and handling.  The Extreme Stick labels also can be a good solution to hard to seal glossy or plastic packaging.

This section of our report deals primarily with the most popular sizes of clear round labels on rolls, the 3/4", the one inch, one and a half inch, the two inch, the two and a half inch, and the three inch labels.

 

These are our popular 2 mil polypropylene clear label seals with Standard Permanent Adhesive:

The 3/4" clear label #34CIR (.75) 2 Mil is used for sealing small packages, cd sleeves, retail products and pharmaceutical items. Also available with a center perforation #34CIRP.

The one inch clear label #1CIR  (1") 2 Mil is used mostly for sealing sleeves and small retail product packages and boxes.  Also available with a center perforation #1CIR.

The one and a half inch clear label #15CIR (1 1/2") 2 Mil is used for sealing and small retail product packages and boxes.  Also available with a center perforation #15CIRP.  For more information about perforated labels see our Clear Round Perforated Labels page.

The two inch clear labels #2CIR (2") 2 Mil are used quite often as seals on retail boxes, electronics, DVD cases, CD cases and Blu-ray cases. Also available with a center perforation.

The two and a half inch clear labels #25CIR (2.5") These 2 Mil standard permanent adhesive labels are used quite often as security seals on retail boxes, electronics, DVD cases, CD cases and Blu-ray cases.

The three inch round clear labels #3CIR (3") 2 Mil make great package and box seals on cardboard and plastic packaged retail products.

Not round, but a clear rectangular label with rounded corners is item # 515CLR.  These rectangles are 1.5" by .5" and have standard permanent adhesive. 

These are our 4 mil vinyl clear label seals with Standard Permanent Weather Resistant Adhesive:

The one inch clear vinyl label  (1") has a 4 mil thickness and is used mostly for sealing sleeves and small retail product packages and boxes.  These labels have a more aggressive adhesive than the polypropylene standard adhesive labels and are more weather resistant (after application the adhesive will become more permanent with time).  These can be a good sealing solution when the package has a smooth "waxy" feel to it.

The two inch clear vinyl labels (2") are 4 mil thick and are used quite often as security seals on retail boxes, electronics, DVD cases, CD cases and Blu-ray cases.  These labels have a more aggressive adhesive than the polypropylene labels and are more weather resistant (after application the adhesive will become more permanent with time).

In a retail environment these clear round labels and seals can help prevent theft, while not obscuring or covering up important graphics or text on the cover of the case inserts.

 

Super Stick Label Holder Dispenser #PL9510 for use with Standard Permanent, Super Stick Labels, and Extreme Stick Labels.  Depending on the type of label and the adhesive it serves as a dispenser or a holder to keep the rolls from sliding or falling while you manually remove the labels from the backing.

Our Super Stick adhesive is a very aggressive adhesive and is found on the new 2 mil polypropylene clear label seals with Super Stick Tamper Resistant Permanent Adhesive.  It is specially formulated to securely bond to a new surface in 24 hours:

The three-quarter inch (3/4") Super Stick labels are used for sealing very small and light -weight retail boxes and sleeves

The one inch clear label  (1") 2 Mil Super Stick is used mostly for sealing sleeves and small retail product packages and boxes.

The perforated one inch Super Stick clear labels (1") are a variation of our popular Super Stick line of clear round labels.  This adhesive is very strong and is a good choice for most retail package sealing.  With these perforated labels if an attempt is made to remove it or open the package, the perforations will be broken and it will be evident that an intrusion into the package has occurred. 

The one and one half inch clear labels (1.5") are the most popular version of the Super Stick line of clear round labels.

The two inch clear labels (2") 2 Mil Super Stick are used quite often as security seals on retail boxes, electronics, DVD cases, CD cases and Blu-ray cases.

The perforated two inch clear labels (2") 2 Mil Super Stick are also used as security seals on retail boxes, electronics, DVD cases, CD cases and Blu-ray cases.  They will keep the package closed until the end user needs to open it, and will then tear apart in the center on micro perforations.  This feature makes the application tamper evident as the label cannot be put back together.

Extreme Stick is our strongest aggressive adhesive and is found on the new 2 mil polypropylene clear label seals with Extreme Stick Tamper Resistant Permanent Adhesive.  It is a custom formulated permanent adhesive designed to stick firmly in the most demanding environments and applications:

The Three-quarter inch Extreme Stick clear label #34CIRES (3/4" or .75") are the smallest of the Extreme Stick line of clear round labels.  These are perfect for sealing very small packages with electronics, cell phone components, and other tech gadgets.  Research shows consumers feel more confident buying a product that is securely and attractively packaged.  The Perforated version of the 3/4" Extreme Stick clear round label is item #34CIRESP.

34CIRESP 3/4" Clear Extreme Stick Labels ProfessionalLabel.com

The one inch Extreme Stick clear labels (1") are the most popular version of the Extreme Stick line of clear round labels.  This adhesive is so strong that it tends to tear the surface of most packages or boxes when an attempt is made to remove it, making it a good tamper evident seal.  It will cause most people to cut it open rather than try to pry it up.  These are perfect for sealing packages with electronics, cell phone components, and other tech gadgets.  Research shows consumers feel more confident buying a product that is securely and attractively packaged.

The perforated one inch Extreme Stick clear labels (1") are a variation of our most popular Extreme Stick line of clear round labels.  This adhesive is so strong that it will stick to almost any surface.  With these perforated labels if an attempt is made to remove it or open the package, the perforations will be broken and it will be evident that an intrusion into the package has occurred. 

The one and one half inch Extreme Stick clear labels (1.5") are also a popular choice for retail package sealing.  This permanent adhesive is a custom formulation with a strong bonding strength in mind and tends to tear the surface of the package or box when an attempt is made to remove it, making it a good tamper evident seal.  It will cause most people to cut it open rather than try to pry it up.  15CIRES unrolling technique.

Our newest addition to the Extreme Stick line is the Two Inch (2") Clear Round Label item number 2CIRES. It is our largest Extreme Stick labels and provides maximum adhesive area with maximum adhesive strength a great choice for retail package sealing.

Clear Rectangular and Square Labels

Yes, this web site is devoted to clear round labels and stickers, but due to customer requests we have developed a couple of rectangular Extreme Stick labels as well for those instances where the length of the label must be longer to provide maximum sticking, yet narrow to accommodate specific packaging needs.

1.5" by .5" Extreme Stick rectangles with rounded corners (1 1/2" x 1/2" item # 515CLRES) offer an alternative to the various round sizes, which may be more appropriate for certain packaging applications.  A perforated version is also offered at no additional cost (item # 515CLRESP).

2.5" by 1" Extreme Stick rectangles with rounded corners (2 1/2" x 1" item # 251CLRES) is our largest rectangular Extreme Stick seal which is good for sealing larger packages and boxes where tamper resistance is desired.

  We recommend a minimum "setting" or "curing" time of 24 hours for all clear labels to grip the surface they are applied to.  This will allow the adhesive to bond and become more permanent as time passes.

How Strong are our Package Sealing Labels?

Clear round labels made with our Extreme Stick adhesive have approximately 4 times stronger adhesive than clear round labels made with our Super Stick Adhesive, and the Super Stick labels have approximately 4 times stronger adhesive than clear round labels made with our Standard Permanent Adhesive.  Some research will reference adhesive strength as "tack level", or the bonding performance.

Mailing Wafer Seals

One Inch, One and a Half Inch (1 1/2") and Two Inch (2") Paper Mailing Seals for Brochures and Magazines

Wailing wafer seals www.ProfessionalLabel.com

The second type of round labels we will report on is the widely used Clear Frosted Translucent Label, also known as Clear Wafer Tab Seals.  These are always on rolls, as they can be applied by machine or hand applied.  Their primary application is mailing seals for mailing brochures, booklets and magazines.  The United States Postal Service issued new guidelines and specifications recently that have changed significantly from past USPS requirements.  They now require a minimum clear round (or white round label) that is 1" or 1 1/2" inches in diameter.  The most popular one used is the clear translucent or frosted sealing label as it lets the graphic or package design show through.  Perforated labels, which used to be the predominantly used label seal are no longer allowed due to their propensity to come apart in the mail sorting machinery and slow down the mailing process.  Now the labels must be non-perforated.

1.5 inch Clear translucent wafer mailing seals

Shown above are the new 1.5 inch clear frosted translucent labels that meet the new USPS regulations for mailing seals.  When applied they become more clear enabling the text or graphics to show through.

 1.5 inch clear translucent paper labels on a roll. Standard adhesive. The roll is on a 3" (three inch) core.

 1 inch clear translucent paper labels on a roll. Standard adhesive. The roll is on a 3" (three inch) core #CLR1W.

The USPS has also designated 2 inch (2") diameter paper label seals as the appropriate size to be used on heavier mailing pieces.

White Round Wafer Seals also Available: 
1.5" white round mailing seals meet the new postal regulations for sealing standard size and weight brochures and magazines.  Easy to tear as per USPS regulations, with no perforations.

2 inch white paper mailing seals

Shown above are the 1 1/2" white wafer seals that meet the new USPS regulations for mailing seals on larger, heavier mailing pieces such as magazines, catalogs, or booklets.


The postal service announced that to improve the productivity of processing booklets and to decrease damage to mail pieces, the new standards require that booklets have three separate, 1.5" tabs on the sides of the mail piece.  Also, tabs used to seal booklets may not be perforated to minimize tab failure.  Tabs with perforations are easily broken, do not maintain their integrity, and are frequently damaged in transport prior to entering the mail stream.

The new specific USPS regulations for Booklets are listed below:

3.15 Booklets

3.15.1 Definition

Booklets must have a bound edge (spine.) Sheets that are fastened with at least two staples in the manufacturing fold (saddle stitched), perfect bound, pressed-glued, or joined together by another binding method that produces a spine where pages are attached together are considered booklets. Booklets are open on three sides before sealing, similar in design to a book. In general, booklets must be uniformly thick. Large bound booklets that are folded for mailing may qualify for automation and machinable prices if the final mail piece remains nearly uniform in thickness and conforms to all other automation standards.

3.15.2 Paper

Booklet covers generally must be made with a minimum paper basis weight of 60-pounds or equivalent. Minimum basis weights are higher for some designs (see 3.15.4).

3.15.3 Physical Standards for Booklets

Booklets must be:

a. Height: not more than 6 inches or less than 3.5 inches high.

b. Length: not more than 10.5 inches or less than 5 inches long. See Exhibit 3.15.5 through Exhibit 3.15.8 for some booklet designs with shorter maximum lengths.

c. Thickness: not more than 0.25 inch or less than 0.009 inch thick.

d. Weight: not more than 3 ounces.

e. Aspect ratio: within 1.3 to 2.5 (see 3.7).

3.15.4 General Booklet Design and Sealing

The position of the final fold and intermediate fold (or spine) for letter-sized booklets varies according to the specific design of the mailpiece. Open edges can be sealed with tabs, glue lines, or glue spots. Except for the simple spine wallet-style design with a height of 4 inches and a maximum length of 8 inches; tabs used as seals on the leading edge of small booklets less than 5 inches high, may be placed closer to the top and bottom edges than shown in Exhibit 3.15.5 through Exhibit 3.15.8 and may overlap in some cases. See Exhibit 3.15.5 through Exhibit 3.15.8 for design and sealing standards by type of design.

3.15.5 Simple Spine

The spine forms the bottom edge of the mailpiece. The length or method used to seal the booklet determines the weight of the paper forming the cover.
