It is common for people to use the terms “label” and “sticker” interchangeably, and while it is not incorrect, for clarity it is better to use “sticker” to refer to pre-printed labels, and “label” to refer to print-on-demand stickers.
To put it more simply, a label is a sticker that is not pre-printed, and a sticker is a label that is pre-printed. As an example, for grocery store price labels, you might have something that says “Fresh Flounder $14.99/kg” and that would be something that makes sense to print only when you need it, instantly on the spot, because prices can change from moment to moment.
On the other hand, for something more common such as “50% off”, it would be more sensible and economical to use a pre-printed sticker. The message in this case is not something that changes because it doesn’t refer to a specific product or price, and could be applied to any item in the store.
It’s also common for people to talk about “grocery store price tags” when they really mean “grocery store labels“. A tag is not supposed to be sticky. It is normally a small piece of card with a hole punched through it at the top, with a piece of string or nylon to attach it to a product.
Really, most of the time it doesn’t matter if you use the wrong words, because everybody understands what these different terms mean, and it’s not a very serious problem in everyday speech.
The one time it does matter is when you’re ordering supplies for your pricing requirements. In this case, if you request a box of 50,000 price tags when you really mean 50,000 price labels, you’d get entirely the wrong product sent to you and probably also spend a lot more money since tags cost more than labels.
