3. What surfaces can I use Surface Safe Sign Labels on for clean removal?
The adhesive is engineered to stay put and remove cleanly without any residue or damage to the following surfaces: painted walls, drywall, metal and glass. Surface Safe Sign Labels can also be used on most hard, smooth surfaces like doors, desks and cabinets.
4. How long can I leave Surface Safe Sign Labels up and still remove cleanly?
Though conditions may vary, Surface Safe Sign Labels can be removed from recommended surfaces without residue or damage up to 3 years after application.
5. What does retro-reflective mean?
Light shined on a retro-reflective surface is reflected back at the same angle it came from for a brighter shine. Retro-reflective materials also enhance barcode scanning because the beam from the scanner is reflected directly back at the reader instead of diffusing.
6. Are Avery Reflective Signs & Labels retro-reflective?
Yes. Our reflective adhesive signs and labels are made with printable retro-reflective glass bead technology.
7. How are the pre-designed templates provided in Avery Design and Print OSHA and ANSI compliant?
Avery sign templates follow ANSI Z535 and OSHA 1910.145 design guidelines for usage of headers, fonts and symbols. Additionally, the material prints clearly and colors remain vibrant, for long-term readability.

10. Why is the ink on my safety signs and labels smearing?
Different label products work with different types of printers, the first thing to do is check the specific product/printer compatibility. In general, our outdoor vinyl and reflective products work best with laser printers. Surface Safe Sign Labels work with both laser and inkjet printers.
