Metallic Look Labels

Metallic look labels can be created either by using specialist inks or by printing onto a metallic coloured label such as silver pp or brushed chrome. There effects really draw the eye and can create a foiling effect without the added cost.

The labels on the left are created on silver PP with specialised inks. The gold areas are produced by printing yellow ink onto the silver label. You will see how the gold areas on the label shine.

The silver/white lightning impact is enhanced by the material and the print areas. To take a look in 3D and feel the quality please request a sample pack or call in and speak to one of our label experts.

Gold Labels

The gold effect is produced by layer a yellow ink over the bright silver material. As with the white area, but in this case to ‘mask’ the metallic effect we lay down 2 hits of white.

These labels are included in a sample pack for metallic labels.

Silver Labels

The metallic effect is produced be laying down the inks of the different colours straight into the bright silver material. If any areas are needed to be non-metallic then we lay down layers of white, to kill back the metallic of the material.

Both labels were then sealed with an overall varnish to complete the look.
