Special finish printing

We offer a whole range of special finishes which can improve the aesthetics of the products and highlight special features, such as:
gilding on luxury products
matte inks for environmentally friendly products.

Lamination involves covering the printed label with a layer of film. Thanks to this, the label takes on a shine. Additionally, lamination protects the print from mechanical damage and soiling.

Gilding – cold-stamping 
A gilded effect can be achieved by applying a very thin metallised film to certain areas of the label. This is done using photopolymer matrices, on one production line with UV inks. It should be noted that we can also do cold-stamping, giving an interesting visual effect.

Embossing involves “pressing” convex areas into the label surface.  Embossing can improve the aesthetics of the product and highlight selected graphic elements. Embossing delivers great results when used in conjunction with paper, metal, or aluminium labels.

Special inks – matte and pearlescent
Typical high-shine UV inks have been in use for a long time, and are an economical way to protect and improve the look of the label.

Matte inks protect the print, while giving a matte rather than shiny finish. Pearlescent inks give a natural, pearly shine effect.
These two types of inks can also be combined.

Deactivation of adhesive / Underprinting 
We have the technical ability to also apply print to the adhesive side of the label. If the packaging of the product permits (for example, it is transparent), print can be applied to the adhesive side of the label including informational text, ingredients, or applications. Deactivation of adhesive involves weakening or eliminating the adhesive properties of the adhesive in certain areas, making these “adhesive-free”.

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.
