Graphic labels

Informing customers about the product and attracting their gaze. 

Graphic labels not only provide information about the product but also attract the customer's attention. They have to catch the eye. They have to sell. And in a competitive environment their task is not easy. Which is why we give them extra care during production.

Benefits of graphic labels

  • Up to 10 colours can be printed.
  • Choose from a range of finishing processes: hot embossing, cold embossing, rotary screen printing, lamination, or varnishing.
  • We can print a series of labels from hundreds of pieces up to thousands of running metres.

Method of production and printing

We use both HD-quality flexographic printing machines and digital printing to produce graphic labels. 

Flexographic printing is ideal for bigger jobs. It allows us to make maximum use of material widths up to 440 mm. This allows us to print multiple productions side by side. This makes production more efficient and cost-effective. When creating a graphic design, you can use up to 10 units for inks and/or for a variety of subsequent finishing options. These will make sure that your product stands out from the rest. We can offer hot or cold embossing, lamination, and special varnishes. Attractive elements in the graphics are highlighted by rotary screen printing. We can apply embossing varnish or higher layers of ink to achieve perfect coverage. We offer printing on adhesives, double-sided printing, and much more.

Digital technologies, on the other hand, are a great solution for small-run printing. They offer the possibility of creating unique designs – every label can be one-of-a-kind. The variable data and numbering option will save you a lot of work and time with any later imprinting. Digital printing also offers finishing processes such as cold embossing, lamination, varnishing, and more.

We supply labels on a reel, in sheets, or folded – depending on your requirements.

Use

The labelling possibilities are endless: on honey, wine, shampoo, tyres or brake discs – yes, even here! Graphic labels are simply all around us. We encounter them in every segment of the market.

Materials

Materials

Graphic labels are printed on adhesive papers or films.

Adhesive papers

Adhesive paper labels matt, semi-gloss, or glossy. Semi-gloss paper is fairly typical. Combined with a variety of adhesives, depending on the application.

Adhesive PE film

Adhesive polyethylene (PE) film is flexible and suitable for shaped substrates (bags, flexible surfaces). It is available in transparent or white versions with different types of adhesives.

Adhesive PET film

The properties of adhesive polyester (PET) film make it suitable for special applications. It is highly heat resistant and represents a possible solution for indoor and outdoor use. It is available in white, metallic, and transparent versions. The transparent variant has excellent transparency. Combined with a variety of adhesives, depending on the application.

Adhesive PP film

White, pearl, transparent, or metallic adhesive polypropylene film stands out thanks to its strength. It just will not rip. However, this makes it less flexible and therefore more suitable for inflexible surfaces. Our most used type of film. Combined with a variety of adhesives, depending on the application.

Properties

Properties

Our technological capacity provides a wide range of applications. We have both flexographic printing machines and digital technology at our disposal. This production versatility makes us a comprehensive partner. We are able to assist with both large and small batch production, from basic materials to more complex, bespoke solutions.

Printing technologies

Digital printing is based only on digital material that is transferred directly to the machine. On the other hand, flexographic printing needs a printing plate, which must be produced regardless of the size of the job. However, these costs only enter the printing process during first production.

Print quality

Print precision and customer satisfaction are our alfa and omega. 100% print quality control, special flexographic plates from ASAHI, and premium technological equipment, all help us to keep print quality and overall service at the highest possible level. A wide range of finishing processes also enables us to achieve perfect results. Let your product shine.

Finishing

Hot or cold embossing, holographic elements, lamination and special varnishes, the use of rotary screen printing, and much more. Thanks to a range of finishing equipment, our variety of finishing options is really wide. Feel free to contact us with any enquiries, we will be delighted to discuss printing options with you.

Ink options

For label printing, we offer UV inks or water-based inks as standard.

In addition to UV inks and water-based inks, we offer special low-migration inks that do not penetrate from the label and packaging surface to the product itself. Which means they are suitable for direct contact with food.

DPG symbol

Option to print the DPG symbol. Thanks to our license, under certain conditions we can also mark your product with this special symbol. It is used on the German market.

Labels marked with the DPG logo are printed under a special security regime and subsequently stored as valuables.
