Iconex Sticky Media Buying Guide
POS Supply Solutions carries a complete line of Iconex Sticky Media™ rolls for a variety of receipt labeling for food service and quick service restaurant (QSR) applications such as carry-out, delivery bags and drive-thru orders, as well as other labeling applications including warehousing and logistics.
Iconex Sticky Media combines two products in one: receipt paper and pressure-sensitive labels, providing a solution to efficiently identify and track goods with one thermal roll. These sticky back thermal paper rolls are BPA-free, food safe, and designed to stick and re-stick to most surfaces. Plus, the environmentally friendly liner-free design allows you to reduce paper waste.
Iconex labels come in a variety of sizes, adhesive patterns and strengths, and varying temperature yields. Because there are so many different options available, we have put together a breakdown of our Iconex sticky thermal roll offerings. We’ve also included application recommendations to help you choose the right products for your business.

- Strong - Adheres more firmly than standard, but not completely; may be partially non-adhesive for removal/resticking
