Embossed Labels

Embossed labels are incredibly tactile and provide a textured appearance that is appealing to the eye and touch. Custom dies are used with heat to apply pressure to the label material, creating a raised surface for lettering and logos or more intricate designs, such as images and patterns.

The 3D effect embossed labels offer can be combined with digital printing, silk screen label printing or hot foil stamping to provide additional detailing and a high-quality finish – perfect for drinks, perfumes and cosmetics packaging.

Screen Printed Labels

Silk screen labels or screen-printed labels are ideal for when you want to combine vivid colours with a tactile finish.

Screen printing is a widely used technique within the textile industry, often used to create motifs and for producing clothing labels. However, the same tactic can be applied to paper, polymer and other materials to create highly tactile self-adhesive screen printed labels for a variety of applications and products. The process involves depositing heavy volumes of ink into a layered effect that creates the recognisable raised finish of silk screen labels.

This method can be used for embellishing specific details, such as signatures, logos and line-drawn illustration, adding detail and depth to product labels for distilled and fermented drinks bottle and is also a cost-effective method for adding braille on labels.

Incorporating screen printing can also help you to add interesting effects that cannot be achieved with other printing methods.

It is suitable for a wide range of applications and its durable and UV resistant qualities make screen printing fade and weather resistant. Suitable for products exposed to sunlight, or labels applied in exterior locations. Silk screen label printing can be creatively combined with other label embellishments to produce attractive labels that get noticed.

Laminated & Varnished Labels

When labels require finishes it is for aesthetic and protective reasons e.g. protection against abrasion (varnish), or protect against chemical, moisture, oils, UV and weathering (laminate).

We offer the following finishes to our laminated and varnished labels:

  • Matt UV Varnish
  • Gloss UV Varnish
  • Spot Gloss UV Varnish
  • Matt Laminate
  • Gloss Laminate
  • Anti-Bacterial Matt Laminate
  • Anti-Bacterial Gloss Laminate
  • Embossed Leather-Look Laminate
  • Soft Touch Laminate

Laminated and varnished labels can provide a premium finish that also acts as a protective coating. Gloss finishes add a satin sheen or bright shine to the label surface, while matt finishes are less apparent. In addition, there are tactile finishes such as "Soft Touch" and embossed patterned finishes like the "Leather" laminate. Along with specialist materials providing a sterile surface as is the case with "Anti-Bacterial" laminates.

When used selectively gloss varnish (Spot UV) can add another embellishment element to the label, highlighting images and important information and/or creating surface patterns on areas of background. Spot UV can be also be used in combination with matt varnish.

Browse our printed labels to find the right shape, size and material or contact our team for support with selecting the right finish for your varnished or laminated labels.

Sequential Label Printing & Variable Data

Sequentially numbered labels are used extensively in commercial and industrial applications to provide information and item identifiers.

Sequentially numbered labels are printed in an ascending, or descending alpha-numeric sequence using Variable Data Printing (VDP), enabling each label to have a unique reference.

If the alpha-numeric sequence is broken and batched, or the information contains other image elements then the above is not possible and we need to agree with you how the variable data is to be produced.

Search our range of printed labels or contact our team for more details on our sequential label printing service.
