Self-adhesive labelsFor Creatively Shaped Labels.
Self-adhesive labels are interesting because their final appearance can be very creative.
They are printed on a material that has glue on it, with the help of which they are applied to the packaging. Such materials consist of two layers: load-bearing tape and face material. In order to acquire the required design, the labels are stamped, and depending on the wishes of customers, finishing operations such as film printing, embossing or numbering are possible.
Where are they most commonly used?
This type of label has been very prevalent in the world of packaging design, it is applied in all industries, and most of all in:
- beverage industry,
- and dairy industry
- and meat products
- in general food industry
The most commonly used type of material for self-adhesive labels. The strength of the adhesive differs depending on what the label is used for, for example, deep freeze. It's a classic white paper. The advantage of using chrome paper is high quality printing, vibrant colours and an attractive glossy appearance, which makes it a popular choice for prints that require a high level of aesthetics and quality.
Heat-sensitive paper, used for printing informational product labels on which the best before date will later be printed.
Metallized material paper/film
This material with a metallized surface layer is available in two forms: as classic paper or PP film. Due to the silver glossy effect, there are wide possibilities for making an attractive design and is often used. Printing on metallized material requires special graphic preparation that determines the parts with metallized effect, all with the aim of achieving the most interesting effects on the print.
PP white / PE white
Self-adhesive white films are an extremely sturdy and durable material of glossy structure and with the possibility of different strengths of adhesive, depending on the conditions of use of labels. They are most often used on packaging for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.
PP transparent / PE transparent
Transparent self-adhesive film, glossy surface, resistant to water and mechanical damage. They have high strength, durability and dimensional stability, which makes them an ideal material for applications that require durable label. Printing on transparent material provides a wide range of possibilities for creating an attractive design and its application in any industry branch.
PP no label look
Packaging material that creates the illusion that the product does not have a label because the exceptional transparency of the material gives the impression that the print is part of the product. In the market, transparent packaging is increasingly used, and with the use of no label look labels, the purity of the product and the clarity of the design are retained.
To achieve an extremely striking appearance and to add a new value to the labels, film printing is used. Depending on the needs of the customer, the film can be printed in different colours and patterns, with the addition of metallic gloss, embossing or other special effects, depending on the requirements and design needs.
Embossing is a printing technique used to create prints that rise above the surface of paper or other material. It enhances the design, and the label acquires a new dimension. It is often used in wine labels, high quality products, but it is also used in highlighting warning signs and similar information
This means printing a larger coating of paint or varnish on a certain area so that it may stand out from the rest of the label. Used for printing on different materials. It can be used to print simple and complex designs, and the colours can be mixed to achieve the desired effect. Ideal for the presentation of first-rate design that requires special effects and thus raises the product's value.
A printing process that is increasingly used for declarations, by printing on a surface that has a sticky backing. Thus, the entire surface of the label is available for design, while the declaration is visible on its back (by removing the label).
