How Humidity and Moisture Affects Labels?

If you live in a warm climate, you know that humidity affects many things, like our health and even certain foods. But did you know that humidity and moisture can affect labels? 

When the temperature rises, the adhesive on the labels gets softer. This can cause the labels to lift and peel away. Moisture also plays a big factor. In a humid environment, paper labels will absorb the air's moisture, causing them to curl. This can lead to printer feeding issues. 

The surface temperature of the item you are labeling is another factor you should keep in mind when it comes to the longevity of your labels. If the container you are using is wet or too high or low of a temperature, the labels will not adhere to the surface. So, it's best to ensure that all surfaces are dry and at a reasonable temperature before applying the label.

Lower temperatures will cause moisture to freeze and form ice crystals over the labels, so when the temperature rises the ice crystals melt, most labels will break down and eventually fall off.
