Stickers are made of paper with a coating of adhesive or silicon and are mounted on a paper carrier material.
Paper stickers have long been in routine use in many different forms (e.g. attached to A4 sheets), and are often supplied with programmes for printing using home PCs and standard printers.
The industrial use of stickers on rolls commenced in the 1950s but only become widespread in the 1960s. We at Weber Marking Systems produce stickers in many different formats.
