UV coated and UV laminated stickers are two different types of custom stickers with different properties and uses.

UV coated stickers refer to a finishing process where a clear protective layer of ultraviolet (UV) cure coating is applied to the surface of the sticker. This coating provides protection against fading, water, and abrasion, making the sticker durable and long-lasting. UV coated stickers are best suited for outdoor use, where they are exposed to the elements.

UV laminated stickers, on the other hand, are stickers that have an additional layer of laminate material applied over the top of the printed design. This laminate material is made from a clear plastic film that is sealed to the sticker using UV light, providing an additional layer of protection. UV laminated stickers are more durable and resistant to scratches, fading, and moisture than unlaminated stickers, and are often used for high-end packaging or promotional products.

In conclusion, UV coated stickers offer a clear protective layer to enhance the durability of the sticker, while UV laminated stickers add an additional layer of protection and make the sticker more durable, resistant to damage, and long-lasting. The choice between UV coated and UV laminated stickers will depend on the specific use case and the level of protection required for the sticker.
