When creating make-up labels we are aware that the label will undergo some rugged handling and remain looking its best, no label is 100% scratch proof but we produce many that have a durable top coat that withstands the hand bag, key pocket and fingernail tests.
For items that need a label wrapped around a tight cylinder like lipsticks and eye liner special considerations are taken into account to prevent flagging, material with a lighter face coat and overlapping edges will both help with this issue.
Waterproof labels for important those bathroom items, never a good look when your labels are breaking up, this is because the label was paper. Using a PP label will be waterproof and oil resistant.
In this competitive industry the packaging must be as good as what is inside and achieving this is a Readability specialty. We know the exceptionally high standards required and how to deliver them. Your labelling concerns are over: from material choice to finishes, we have your back.
Label Finishes For Cosmetics
No, not the machine that sits in the corner of the office doing very little for you. It’s an over-layer that protects the label from grease and grime, an overlaminated label.
Normally this is done with a clear vinyl or polyester material, the end result makes the product stay looking great even if it has time in a slightly damp environment.
Growing in popularity in the beauty, cosmetic and personal care industries as they can give customers a look at the product inside when paired with a transparent bottle.
These clear labels can have either a glossy or matt finish and with this style of label it is possible to create the illusion that the printing is done directly on the bottles giving a premium appearance.
To achieve a profesional no-label look, the choice of material needs to be joined with the correct liner and high clartity resistant adhesive.
The added luxury of a highly metallic shine really catches the eye of customers. With the right artwork this finish can really make the chosen areas of the design pop out. Reflecting the light in gold, silver, bronze and pearlescent colours makes the label extra vibrant.

Is security a concern?
Contamination of products is something that the many industries fights daily, security labels can create an effective deterrent. Simple solutions like over the lid tamper evident tabs show if jars have been opened before, simple and a effective. However the simplicity means mimicking this is possible, so more advanced methods can be used.
Covert Or Overt Security
Covert options are using UV, a thin layer is printed on to the labels and is completely invisible to the human eye. The only way of seeing this is to shine a UV light on this product to show the writing on the label.
Overt, or easily visible options such as the broken label, a simple adhesive label. Security labels are complicated and require some discussion to find the suitable methods for you.
