Spot Colours/Spot Varnish
Spot colour printing is used when one or more colours need to be matched and reproduced consistently for a logo, graphic, or special design element. Spot colour inks can accurately reproduce colours that are outside the gamut of '4 colour process' colours. Spot Varnish can also be used to highlight a particular area of a design.
Reverse printed labels may use a transparent film in order that it can be put to use as a window sticker. There may be an image printed on one side of the label, with instructions printed on the reverse that can be read when the label is removed.
Reverse printed labels are widely used on items such as cosmetics and food and beverage products, giving the client more print space for instructions, safety advice, content information or design. The reverse printed label can be peelable, with promotional materials on the front and more information on the reverse when peeled away. This effectively doubles the amount of space available for printing which is extremely useful when printing cosmetics labels.
Embossing uses heat and custom dies to give a distinctive appearance to a label. Both male and female dies are applied to the label (one on each side), and heat and pressure then give a raised 3-D texture.
Embossed labels can have either raised text or images, or they can have a complex texture to all or part of the surface. Embossing is often used on wine labels to add a look of quality, it can also be used in conjunction with foil.
