In a single production pass, we produce self-adhesive labels with a wealth of embellishments including:
Thermal and cold lamination: application of the thinnest of films, available in a wide assortment of colours, bonded to the self-adhesive label by means of a cliché plate. Three-dimensional effects can be produced with thermal lamination.
Embossing or debossing: techniques which produce high or low reliefs on labels with the aid of specific equipment.
Engraving: an embellishment technique which creates bespoke textures.
Braille: creation of a three-dimensional effect which can be read by people with sight impairments.
Gold doming: three-dimensional effect created with relief screen-printing, using a special foil.
Screen printing: ink applications that highlight specific details of the label, which may be in relief (Braille effect available in glossy, matt, glitter and sandpaper version) or flat (in matt and glossy version).
Varnishing: application of glossy and matt varnishes, which may be overprintable.
Pantone® colours also available in Uncoated, Coated and Metallics (gold and silver effect) versions.
Cutouts: creation of openings which reveal the surface underneath the label.
Plastic lamination: application of a clear, matt, glossy or soft-touch film to protect and embellish the label.
Bonding of different types of papers and printing media.
Some types of paper we use:
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) media: sourced from forests managed on an environment-friendly, socially useful, environmentally sustainable basis.
Eco-Friendly Media: recycled or made partially or entirely from fibres other than paper.
Conventional Media: natural, metallised, coated, glossy.
Barrier Media: ideal for wine and beer labels to guarantee resistance to damp conditions and contact with water.
Greaseproof (Oil Repellent) Media: ideal for products which might come into contact with greasy or oily substances, thanks to the stain-resistant coating which provides an extra-strong barrier.
