This week, we’re taking a closer look at our range of matt transparent labels to find out how these amazing transparent labels can transform any labelling project in an instant.
What Are Matt Transparent Labels?
Our matt transparent labels are made of a transparent polyester film with a matt finish and a permanent adhesive. The matt finish means that these transparent labels don’t reflect light as efficiently as gloss labels. This creates a flat “dull” finish that isn’t shiny or reflective.
You might be wondering why we’d describe a “dull” finish as “magical” but don’t dismiss MTP just yet!
Many surfaces have a matt finish, which means that you can use matt transparent labels to add additional text to any item without drawing attention to the fact that you’ve had to use a sticky label to do so. Matt transparent labels blend in with matt surfaces, making your design look like an existing part of the surface below.
NB: the adhesive layer may trap air or dust, which can prevent your transparent labels from being 100% transparent. They have excellent transparency when applied onto white/coloured surfaces but a slightly frosted look when applied onto glass items.
When Should I Use Matt Transparent Labels?
Matt transparent labels are brilliant for all sorts of applications but we think they’re best when used as:
PRODUCT LABELS / PACKAGING LABELS
Transparent labels allow you to add information without distracting or detracting from the existing design of your products and/or packaging. This could be additional product information, pricing information, design work, or promotional details.
SPECIAL ADDRESS LABELS
If you’re sending out invitations or correspondence for a special event, you may have chosen envelopes that match a particular theme. Transparent labels let you can add your addresses and preserve the design of your envelopes. For example, transparent labels are especially popular for wedding address labels because they don’t cover up the design of the envelopes chosen to match the invitations inside.
DISPLAY & EXHIBITION LABELS
Transparent labels are a nifty way to add details or information about items on display – whether in a gallery, museum, or a classroom. Transparent labels preserve any background elements that are part of the display – where white or coloured labels would distract from the overall appearance of the display.
You can also create your own set of window stickers with our transparent labels.
A SOLUTION TO COLOUR-MATCHING ISSUES
Transparent labels sidestep colour-matching issues if you can’t find a match (and don’t want to pay for bespoke coloured labels).
