OnlineLabels.com sent me some Happy Mail which if you saw my live unboxing on Facebook Live earlier this month (re-watch it here on YouTube), you know I was super excited about! I mean there's a lot to be excited about when it comes to finding the mother lode retailer of sticker and label sheets! There's printable gold and silver foil adhesive sheets, printable iron on transfer, printable magnet paper, clear sticker sheets, 12x18" printable adhesive sheets and the thing that peeked my interest the most: printable weatherproof sheets!
I literally could not wait to try out the printable weatherproof sheets. This stuff opens up a whole new world for people who make mugs and jar labels, and basically any print and cut that could get wet. And you don't need any kind of sealant!
I am gonna be honest, I had my doubts because let's face it this stuff is claiming to be able to be printed on my ink jet printer, cut on my Silhouette and then washed or left out in the rain without the ink fading or bleeding and without any kind of sealant. I may have given it the stink eye when I heard the claims.
So let's test it out...obviously you set it up as a regular print and cut, print on your printer (oriented so the printer prints on the shiny side) and then cut with your Silhouette.
Seriously, all I did was go to the cut settings page on their website, find the recommended blade, thickness, and speed settings for Weatherproof labels and adjust my Cut Settings in Silhouette Studio to match. What do you know?! They worked perfectly on the first cut and I was left with a perfect kiss cut!
Now for the true test...would their Waterproof/Weatherproof claims hold up? See for yourself!
Can you say, "Move over vinyl?!"
And here's how I used them outside to give them the true "weatherproof" test.
Aren't these garden stakes just the cutest?!
It's basically been the wettest spring in history (at least as far back as I go) and they're still good as new! I'd say they passed the 'weatherproof' test.
And it's official OnlineLabels.com has quickly become my go-to place for all things sticker paper!
