Vinyl vs BOPP: What's the Difference?

Custom stickers and labels are truly one of the most versatile and multi-purpose tools at your disposal. They can be used in any industry for branding, packaging or marketing purposes, as well as around the home. The two most versatile sticker and label materials are white removable vinyl and BOPP (bi-axially oriented polypropylene). So how do you decide which material you should choose?

There are a few things to consider when identifying the material that best suits your needs. It can be difficult, as White Removable Vinyl and White BOPP share many of the same capabilities as well as appearance. They are both:

  • Water resistant (however, only white vinyl is dishwasher safe)
  • Fridge and Freezer Safe (when applied at minimum 10°C/50°F)

The main difference between the two materials is even though the white vinyl material is removable, it is best suited for outdoor purposes as it is a thicker material, better adheres to curved surfaces, and is more durable than its White BOPP counterpart.

Removable Vinyl vs BOPP Stickers & Labels

White Removable Vinyl

White Removable Vinyl has a strong adhesive to stay on your surface, has bubble free technology for easy application, and can also be easily removed without leaving behind a sticky residue or adhesive. This material is printed and cut as 8.5 x 11” pages, but can also be ordered as individually cut handouts. There is no minimum order quantity for this product.

White BOPP

StickerYou’s Durable Roll Labels use White BOPP material with gloss lamination. White BOPP material is slightly thinner than White Vinyl material. It also has a permanent adhesive and cannot be easily removed from surfaces. This product is available on rolls, starting with minimum of 250 labels per roll. While this material is extremely durable, it does not hold up well against sun/UV rays (material may yellow over time), which is why we recommend this product for indoor use only.

  • Product packaging
  • Oil/Chemical products
  • Beauty products
  • Industrial machinery
  • Waste bins
  • Permanent Indoor Use
