Can Inkjet labels be used for outdoor applications?

The simple answer is yes.  You will need to use a non-paper label like a polypro or polyester label with an inkjet printer that uses pigmented inks.  There are two types of inks used in inkjet label printers, dye and pigmented inks.  Dye based ink give your very vibrant colors and are water soluble.  The pigmented inks are not as vibrant, but give you permanent long lasting inks that are waterproof and very chemical resistant.
