A beautiful and effective label is often more than just ink on a substrate. After printing, finishing adds shape, texture, tactility and functionality to a label. Impact Label has the technology and expertise to apply a host of finishing techniques to your label in order to make it stand out. These include:
We can help you choose the most appropriate adhesive for your label to ensure it stays where it is intended and withstands the elements for the lifetime of your product.
We can die-cut labels to virtually any shape, and also create knock-outs within a label for elements such as screens and dials.
Embossing and Debossing
This process adds tactility and texture, producing features such as raised or recessed buttons, braille and other elements that can help users to interact with your product.
The doming and capping process produces beautiful, glossy coated labels with clear polyurethane resin, which are impervious to water and can withstand extreme temperatures, most cleaning chemicals and salt sprays, as well as short exposures to gasoline and other automotive chemicals.
Spot Gloss or UV Coating
Spot gloss or UV coating provides contrast in the form of isolated areas of high and low gloss. This can be useful for showcasing an important element on a label, such as a logo or your company name .
Lamination applies a clear glossy or matte film over a printed product. This provides protection from common hazards such as smudges, grease or other stains. It also provides durability in the form of structural rigidity. Lamination is a great finishing option for pieces that receive a great deal of use and handling in their lifetime, and for items that are reusable such as instructions, maps, educational materials, emergency signage, etc.
