The “No Label” Look
Digital screen printing can help you achieve the sleek, sophisticated “no label” look. This is accomplished with super opaque white ink on clear film. This feature is especially popular with beauty and personal care products. These subtle labels are incredibly durable and will give your product an elegant, high-end feel.
Other Special Features:
- Tactile: Rotary screen printing makes it possible to have multi-dimensional labels with raised printing that gives a tactile look and feel.
- High gloss: For that shiny magazine cover look and feel, rotary screen printing can accomplish a beautiful high gloss look. This shiny feel of this type of lamination sharpens the label or package you’re working with, giving it a sophisticated finished look.
- Embossed: Embossing is a great feature to add to your labels, as it adds custom design, lettering, decoration and pattern effects to your basic design.
- Scented ink: A luxurious feature you can opt for with rotary screen printing is the application of scented ink. We feature a wide range of soft, subtle scents that give your product a whole new dimension.
- Scratch-off ink: Scratch off ink is perfect for labels that are meant to hide a “prize” or special code or secret message. Customers can have fun removing the ink with coin or simply their fingernail.
- Thermochromatic ink: Make your label more exciting with this heat-sensitive form of ink. This ink incorporates a specific type of dye that can change colors when there’s an increase or decrease of temperature. Kids especially love this on their products.
- Glow-in-the-dark ink: To make your product stand out, even in the dark, glow-in-the-dark ink will make your label readable 24-7, day or night.
- Combination varnishes: To accomplish the exact finish you’re looking for, rotary screen printing allows you to combine various varnishes.
- Color shifting effects: This gives your label extra appeal, as colors are always shifting depending on the light and/or angle.
