An adhesive label or sticky label is a small piece of paper designed to be affixed to another larger piece of paper or other object, typically by the action of a layer of adhesive on the back of the label.
The concept has since been extended into a variety of areas:
- On mail:
- On other kinds of paper objects:
Almost every imaginable type of paper and adhesive has been used at some point; see postage stamp paper and postage stamp gum for a more detailed discussion. Label may be produced individually, or in sheets, which case they are usually separated by perforations or rouletting, see postage stamp separation.
