The symbols that are used on the 2nd polyester label of the set have 2 warning symbols: a triangle with an exclamation point and another triangle with a crooked arrow pointing down. Both are internationally recognized symbols (or pictorials). The triangle with an exclamation point signals “Danger!” and the triangle with a crooked arrow pointing down represents an electrical hazard.

These polyester labels were produced on 3 separate rolls using the Thermal Transfer process (also known as Hot Stamp). The customer had the option of 3 different methods of final packaging: 3 separate rolls; 1 small bag containing each label (the customer ordered 25 of each label, making 25 sets of 3 labels), or 1 bag of each label. This particular customer chose to take 3 bags of 25 labels.

Polyester product labels are an excellent method of branding an item and providing instructions or information about a product. The adhesive used may be permanent or a special adhesive may be used that would allow the polyester label to be removed without damaging the surface of an item.
