Thanks for your comment Jennifer!

Usually when there is an issue with a white paper backing left behind the culprit is a low grade rubber based adhesive.  These adhesives are an excellent choice from a price standpoint but quickly set up especially when exposed to UV light.  An example we can all relate to would be masking tapes that get applied to a window.  If left to sit for a few days, they're just about impossible to remove cleanly.

As far as sticky residue being left behind, that is usually one of two issues.  The first would be a low grade (rubber or acrylic) adhesive that has been applied to a plastic surface.  The same plasticizers that make plastic flexible begin to migrate out of the binder and into the adhesive.  A good example would be a clear transparent tape applied to the cover of a vinyl binder.  After a while the adhesive becomes gooey and leaves behind a residue when removed.  The second issue usually results from achieving a good bond using an acrylic adhesive which simply doesn't allow the label to separate cleanly from the affixed surface.

At Mcloone we generally hear "I want my label to stick no matter what!" but when a customer needs a removable label we utilize 3M adhesives specially formulated for removability without residual residue.   If you have any additional questions we would love to discuss them with you!  Call 800-624-6641 to speak with a member of our customer care team. --Karen

Nice post! Aside from knowing the price for labels, I knew that you should also consider other factors like the format. I always use euroffice avery labels coz its easy to use with my printer.
