Special finishes with our digital & flexographic printing technologies

Here at Limpet Labels, we produce labels from the humble GHS warning diamond right up to high-end retail labels with sophisticated embellishments.

Special finishes and substrates can be used for all manner of reasons from durability to aesthetics.  Some customers just want a simple label design on a label capable of lasting outdoors in all weathers or in harsh chemical environments – typically we produce these labels on the same materials as our hazard warning diamonds. Others are after labels with a ‘wow-factor’ that makes a product jump off the shelf or conveys the value of the product inside.

We have lots of experience with both digital labels and flexographic labels, in helping customers to choose a label construction which will best suit their needs, while staying within their budget.  You don’t have to spend huge amounts of money to make your packaging look expensive and classy.

In the last few years, we have seen an explosion in small companies wanting to give their labels that ‘top-end’ look and feel and this has driven us to source a plethora of finishes and techniques to enable our customers to add value to their products. Matt and gloss spot varnishes, metallics, textures, micro-embossing all go toward making your finished product stand out from all the other products on the shelves.

Sometimes people want us to print their label with their design on, but also want overprinting capabilities so they can add batch dates or data for last minute or same-day dispatch. We do this with our finishing lines by adding a thermal receptive varnish for over printing purposes.
