I have one requirement for a label, absolutely non-removable under any circumstances. However, I have never come across such a sticker. Can you point me in the right direction on this?

The license plate year stickers that I must apply each year with my registration renewal are pretty darn impressive.  They have to withstand 140 degree temperature swings over time, direct water contact, and they stay on no matter what.

For plastics, yes. Design an insert into the mold, and use an insert plate to emboss the text into the plastc. A lot of manufacurers do this - you can see it on many consumer products.

Perhaps it's an old school approach, but I need a sticker for product embeleshment. Think of the stickers applied to 1980's Transformer or GIJoe toys. Except, I want mine to be impossible to remove. The license plate sticker would be a great choice. Anyone know where I can get stickers made like that?

Thanks for your comments Cabe!  Mcloone specializes in a variety of labels, nameplates, and decals used for product embellishment.  We also utilize quality industrial grade adhesives capable of withstanding harsh environments. 

Because material/adhesive choices are so specific to the application they're being used for, it's difficult to recommend something without knowing more details about the sticker.  We would be happy to discuss some options and answer any additional questions you may have.  Please call 800-624-6641 to speak with one of our customer care representatives.  -Karen       www.mcloone.com

Excellent Post Karen.   I retired from the appliance industry a few years ago and mainly dealt with UL and CSA (Canadian Standards Association).  Generally, the labels affixed to our ranges were on painted surfaces.    Readability and indelibility were the key factors and to your point, both agencies had to approve the material, adhesive and wording for each. Even the format was regulated to a great extent.  We gave specific attention to warning and caution labels because they were not detailed in the specifications and yet, we felt, were every bit as important as the name and number plates.

Thank you for your comments!  At Mcloone, we produce UL and CUL labels on a regular basis and agree with you that each label should be treated with the same importance.  Everyone can benefit from designing the label correctly, the first time.

I always take issue with labels that do not come off cleanly - the ones that leave a white paper backing or sticky residue behind. Is it simply because it's a cheaper label or are their other factors at work here?
