FAQ - Applications

Gill-line offers products printed by: screen printing, flexography, digital, or offset printing. These methods produce products of varying durability.


Durability relates to: (1) the strength of the material the image is printed on; (2) the lightfastness of the ink when exposed to sunlight; (3) the resistance of ink and material to chemicals and solvents; and (4) the resistance of ink and material to abrasion.


Pressure sensitive labels, decals, and signs furnished by Gill-line are printed on one of three families of materials: polyesters, vinyls, or papers.


Durability of ink on a label, decal, or sign is mainly determined by the thickness of the ink film on the material and by the type of colorant used in the ink.


Because of the wide variety of uses of our materials, we would like to ensure that the right product or material is used for a particular application. Identifying how the product will be used or what the decal will be applied to will help determine what material is best suited for that application. Material samples are always available at no charge for testing.

Many of the Gill-line products have different adhesives. Some have permanent and others have removable, ultra removable, or repositionable adhesive. Each product has been designed to offer the best combination of material and adhesive. For instance, our Bumper Sticker vinyl has an ultra removable adhesive that insures clean and easy removability, even after one year from application.
