Using foil to embellish your labels is a really effective way to make them standout amongst the crowd, in addition to being cost-effective. Foil can be used to highlight part of your label design, to make an eye catching logo that will be shared by all your labels, or as a simple border that offers a little more pop than a basic black line. There are two different techniques used when embellishing labels with foil, Hot and Cold. At Etiquette we specialise in cold foil as it is the more cost effective and efficient option.
The process works by adding a special adhesive which is printed onto the label material, both the label material and the cold foil then pass through the printing press together the foil sticks to the wet adhesive and the materials pass through a UV dryer where the adhesive is cured and the cold foil is permanently adhered to the label. The excess foil is stripped away and only the cured portion remains. If you would like to know more about the cold foil embellishment process or think it would be beneficial to your labels you can contact contact Etiquette on 0845 222 0354 or you can email the Sales Team at: email@example.com
