We are experts in creating labels with impact, and our representatives would be happy to discuss embellishment options for your labels. Some of the embellishments and effects we offer are listed in detail below:
This is a method of foiling that requires a special tool and can achieve finer and higher quality detail than cold foil. Hot foil has a premium, luxurious effect that is used to communicate quality. Hot foils have a wider range of colours and effects such as holographic compared to cold foil.
An alternate method of foiling that requires a plate and is more cost effective than hot foil due to the lower set up costs. A selected range of colours and effects such as holographic are available.
A textured, prestigious effect created by raising a design or image from the label surface to give a tactile feel or highlight certain design elements.
The screen process has the ability to print a smooth, controllable lay-down of ink. It is used to create high build coatings (see below) and to print high density, opaque inks. This gives excellent depths of colour and is particularly effective when using a white either on its own or to provide a base for vibrant design elements.
Utilising the silk screen process we can create a High Build coating that gives a tactile, premium effect that highlights key design areas. Also called braille effect, it sits above the label surface.
The entire label surface can be finished in either a gloss or matt lamination film, which provides a high impact finish in addition to strong moisture and scuff protection.
The entire label surface can be finished in either a gloss or matt coating.
Gloss or matt spot coatings can be used over an element of the design to highlight it or to create a pattern. When used with a contrasting lamination film, a very effective look can be achieved.
We have a number of coating options for achieving a textured look and feel to the label, including:
Metallic inks are used to create a similar effect to foil, via the shine of the metallic particles found in the ink.
Many more specialty inks and coatings are available, contact us if you have a specific requirement.
