Many brand owners, packaging buyers and graphic designers like to encorporate metallic effects onto their labels, attempting to add a ‘superior’ feel to their products.
Metallic labels are nothing new in the industry. For years they have either been printed using spot colours onto a metallic base label, or by printing metallic spot colours or foils onto a standard white paper. However there have always been limitations when it comes to complex designs and when attempting to manipulate the metallic (eg adding a colour gradient). The methods of printing have also been predominantly only suitable for longer runs, as well as requiring expensive printing plates.
The latest advances in digital technology now means that Labelservice can offer fully bespoke metallic printing for digital labels, using Color Logic.
The Color Logic system allows eye-catching, decorative effects to be incorporated inexpensively into your labels. Using colour palettes and plug-ins for existing software, the Color Logic design suite runs in Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and QuarkXpress and can easily be used to give your labels the wow factor. Color Logic allows graphic designers the freedom to create a virtually unlimited array of metallic colours and decorative effects using a choice of over 250 colours. We can supply a colour chart equivalent to a Pantone book, and one encorporates the colour references in exactly the same way you would a Pantone colour.
We can also add a strong opaque white for text, or to sit behind a barcode. We can also add the white to almost all of the label, giving the effect of a foil or metallic ink printing onto a white material – just without all of the plate costs and minimum order quantities!
There is no design too intricate and, being a digital solution, the technology is perfect for shorter run and multiple sort jobs.
Press Proofs are also available, should you want to have a look at your designs at an early stage, before comitting to a full production run.
This system has almost endless possibilities and is already proving incredibly popular with a wide range of manufacturers including cosmetics, car care and food companies.
