Scented labels

Home / Scented labels

Scented labels constitute another interesting solution offered by our printery. They are used on products in case of which the scent is very important. Then, there is no need to unpack or open the final product – one just needs to check the scent put on the applied label.

We wanted to satisfy the demands of our Customers. That is why we elaborated a unique method for “enclosing” the scent between two layers of foil. One only needs to unglue one from the other to know the scent of the product and thanks to such “enclosure” of scent between foils, it will last on the label for a very long time.

It is very important that, in most cases, the scent on the label reflects the actual scent of the product in 100%. Usually, we do not use scents from a “database” but we receive fragrance concentrates from our Customers.

The scented label is used every time when the quality of the product and its exposition are important. For relatively small money we actually get an innovative and distinctive product. Such labels are a great option in perfumery or in air fresheners sector market.

The process of producing scented labels

When it comes to scented labels, we provide comprehensive service and, actually, the only aspect the Customer needs to help us in is the delivery of fragrance concentrate.

The process of producing scented labels itself includes the following stages:

1/ Gathering information on the label and its assessment.
By speaking with the Customer, we try to
gather as much information as possible about the labels. It concerns not only the primary aspects such as the size of the label, order quantity or number of colors, but also the estimated wear e.g. in a year, the purpose of the label, required resistance to unusual conditions. It is very important that we are provided with the samples of the fragrance concentrate in order to ensure that it can be easily applied on the label. All those pieces of information allow us to adjust the offer to the Customer’s requirements in the best and most accurate way. The price, in particular, includes all of the discussed parameters and determined refinements of the label.

2/ Preparation of the project and pre-press.
It is possible to
create a design from scratch by the employees of our DTP department, as well as to adjust the received graphic materials to flexographic technology and our machinery profiles. The detailed instructions about preparation of graphic data have been described in “Technical requirements – preparation for printing”. Then, the design is sent for approval as a PDF file and, if required, via e-mail as a digital proof. The project is being adjusted and corrected until it is accepted by the Customer. After the final approval of the graphic design, we make the photopolymers and punch dies which, when applied to the machinery, enable printing and cut of the labels.

3/ Production of labels.
Photopolymers are put on the printing press and the process of printing and applying the scent is being started. The first production of a particular label is
conducted in the presence of the Customer’s representative, who, on the basis of previously presented materials and own assessment, approves the pattern and decides whether the intensity of the scent is correct. During the printing process, paints are applied to the surface and they are hardened with UV lamps, which allows usage of high line counts and, as a result, very good quality of print. Then, two layers of the label are connected with special adhesive that enables multiple gluing and ungluing. Next, finishing works are performed – punching, cutting, packing, etc. – everything according to the instructions of the Customer.
