Printing metallic effect labels
Creating a metallic effect on a label can be done in a number of ways, brushed chrome or silver material can be selected or metallic inks could be used or alternatively foil stamping may be the solution if label volume and design are suitable.
Our range of metallic inks & materials is growing to offer you even more choices when designing your label.
Decision making on Metallic Materials
Ideally talk to us and send us your artwork. If you can describe the look you are trying to achieve for your labels we can talk you through the options and send you examples of work to prove the quality.
Gold and silver label materials are available, note add this to your sample pack requests as the use of gold, silver and brushed chrome are is more limited than the more common materials.
Metallic inks for digital press have become ever more common, these create the metallic effects in gold, silver and copper.
Hot and cold foiling have moved on in recent years and incredible effects and tactile finishes can be produced to boost the premium feel.
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.
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.
