Screen print labels
Rotary screen printing is a combination of technology and equipment that brings eye-popping special effects to your product labels. Even a slight advantage on the retail shelf can have a huge impact on your sales, and rotary screen printing is the ultimate secret weapon in the battle for shopper's attention.
With rotary screen printing, you have the opportunity to add powerful special effects to your labels with perfect registration. This means the effects available for your labels can be applied to the finest details of your design.
Our clients are taking advantage of these rotary screen printing features right now:
Super opaque whites
Essential for clear label materials, in order to produce the "no label look" where your designs appear to be printed directly on your bottles. Without super opaque whites light can penetrate a clear label, causing your designs to appear faded or washed out.
Vibrant, intense label colors
Screen printing lays down more ink than other label printing processes. When darker label materials cause colors to appear dull or faded, our rotary screen printing solution creates stunning colors with excellent coverage and strong contrast.
Ultra-fine label details
The precise registration of rotary screen printing brings an incredible level of control to custom label printing, including raised text and lines and crystal clear print as small as 2pt type!
Tactile label varnishes
Tactile spot varnish and other special varnishes can completely change the appearance and character of your screen print labels. Tactile labels compel shoppers to interact with your products– to literally pick them up, and connecting customers with your products is the primary goal of effective labels. Tactile printing and thick transparent varnish can be used to produce braille for labels, meeting regulatory requirements for the visually impaired and blind.
Get the sculpted look with raised printing
Raised printing or "thermography" creates a sculpted effect on text and images so they rise above the label's surface. The result is an eye-catching high gloss area, one you may have seen on labels such as lip gloss packaging where thermography is used on the image of a person's lips to create a wet look or nail polish labels where the thermography sculpted look is used to make the image of a painted fingernail shine. Raised thermography creates attention-grabbing 3D effects for your labels.
A viable alternative to hot foil for labels
The precise registration, sculpted look, and unmatched ink coverage of screen printing allows us to offer an affordable alternative to hot foil for gold and silver. Consider adding the coveted hot foil stamp look to your next label project with screen printing. Raised shiny metallic effects are always an effective way to grab a shopper's attention.
UV curable inks
UV curable inks have a glossy appearance and an ability to withstand contact with materials like oils, chemicals, alcohol, and cosmetic products. UV curable inks and varnishes also provide resistance to solvents and good resistance in the dishwasher.
