Multi-layer labels

Multi-layer labels, (also known as peel-off or gizmo labels) are used wherever it is necessary to include a large amount of information in a relatively small area.

Labels of this type consist of two layers permanently bonded, but which can be separately viewed.

Multi-layer labels are exceptionally popular in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, where the law requires a substantial amount of information to be included on the packaging.

Similarly, producers who want to include information about promotions, other products, or in many languages often choose this type of label.


he label production process usually consists of the following stages:

1. Gathering informatio

In conversations with the client, we aim to gather as much information as possible about the labels. We are interested in more than just the basic details and sizes, order amounts and colours – we want to know estimated annual usage, the purpose of the labels, durability requirements in atypical conditions, and so on. This information lets us make the best possible offer, matched to the client’s needs perfectly.

2. Design preparation

We offer label design services, and our graphics studio can develop a concept from the ground up and adapt the materials provided by the clients to flexo technology and the profiles of the machinery we use. Precise guidelines for preparing graphic materials are available in the “Technical requirements – print preparation” section. The prepared design is sent for approval in PDF format, and if necessary by courier as a digital proof.

3. Label productio

Photopolymers are placed on the printing machines and the printing process begins. The first print run of a given design can be conducted with the client present, who may approve the design based on their own materials and estimation. The paints which we use in the printing process are UV hardened, making high line counts possible Finally, finishing is applied according to the client’s instructions.
