The strong opaque capability causes white details on a transparent stock to be crystal clear. This combination can make printing quite tricky on a standard flexographic press.
Costa Farms is a client of Great Lakes Label, who uses white ink on transparent labelstock. The SPGPrint rotary screen specializes in creating fine lines and sharp letters down to a four-point font. This label, in particular, requires ultra fine lines for the Costa Farms’ logo. Regardless, the rotary screen creates precise and well-coated letters for the intricate font.
The glitter and tactile coatings create a raised effect. They make graphics look more realistic while drawing customer attention due to the fact that they glisten in the light. These techniques enhance the overall luxury aesthetic of a label. The metallic colors, UV inks and fluorescent colors don’t impact the label on a tactile level.
Instead, they catch the light in various ways and enhance elements of the design. These techniques provide ways for brands to create designs with a competitive edge.
