Embossing (and debossing) is a great way to create a tactile experience with a textured, prestigious effect by raising (or lowering) a pattern or image from the label surface. This gives a tactile feel and can highlight certain design elements. Embossing is particularly effective on uncoated papers.

Lamination provides durability. The entire label surface can be finished in a gloss or matt lamination film. This provides a high impact appearance in addition to strong moisture and scuff protection. There are speciality laminations like linen and leather effects to create a unique tactile finish. Holographic logos or patterns can be custom made specific to brand.
Coatings offer a perfect finish.
Flood Coating The entire label surface can be finished in either a gloss or matt coating. Spot Coating Gloss or matt spot coatings can be used over an element of the design to highlight it or to create a pattern. Textured Coating We have a number of coating options for achieving a textured look and feel to the label, including our super-gritty sandpaper coating.
Soft Touch Coating for a smooth touch of luxury. This luxurious coating can be applied to selected areas or to the entire surface of the label to achieve a subtly soft texture. It encourages touch and engagement and provides products with a unique velvety and warm positioning.
Utilising the silkscreen process we can create a High Build coating that gives a tactile, premium effect that highlights key design areas. They act as a clear or coloured raised surface on areas of your label such as your logo, variety name, or as a textured pattern. They can also be very effective when used as a super glossy highlight over a matte finish background. It is also a good way of enhancing the richness and depth in colour of the chosen design elements.
