Labeling Glossary: Substrate

A "Substrate" is literally one layer under another. In the labeling industry, the "substrate" refers to the material being printed on. Most quality label substrates are vinyl, but cheaper substrates might include polyester or coated paper. Vinyl substrates are more durable, and form-fitting. They are generally scratch, UV and chemical resistant, making them perfect for labeling applications. Special resin inks are required for printing to a vinyl substrate.
