- Screen Printed Self-Stick Vinyl – Removable
These screen-printed, vinyl placards have an adhesive backing that adheres well to most surfaces, but permits reasonably clean peel-off and removal at destination. Generally used when removal of placards from containers and equipment is required.
- Screen Printed Self-Stick Vinyl – Permanent
These screen-printed, vinyl placards are commonly used on dedicated vehicles and do not require a placard holder. Permanent self-adhesive placards are durable and weather resistant with a permanent adhesive backing for a lasting use on trucks, equipment, tanks, and containers. These placards have a 5 year outdoor life.

Rigid plastic placards are long lasting and commonly used on dedicated fleets, for severe weather exposure, and where the return of the placard is probable. Generally used with a placard holder. These placards have a 5 year outdoor life.
These non-adhesive placards are manufactured from wax coated board material. Tagboard placards are very economical and are commonly used when return of the placard is not possible. These placards are guaranteed to last up to 60 days in all weather conditions. Generally used with a placard holder.
