We’ve introduced a brand new option when it comes to choosing the best finish for your labels.
Semi-gloss labels provide an excellent alternative to a full gloss or full matt finish, adding a subtle touch of decoration and quality without being overbearing or distracting too much attention from your text or the item being labelled.
These labels have a decorative, professional look that provides a brilliant middle ground between the shine of a full gloss finish and the dull surface of a full matt finish. Semi-gloss labels are a popular choice for marketing and promotional materials, for labelling containers for cosmetics, food and drink products, or gift items, and for general purpose product labels and/or packaging labels.
The semi-gloss coating has a smooth finish, which creates excellent print results. It also has the benefit of providing the paper labels with limited protection from water and dirt; we call these labels “Splashproof” because they can be wiped clean and dry if they get lightly splashed with water or dirt.
[Please note that these labels are NOT fully waterproof because they are, ultimately, paper labels, which will be damaged by long term or excessive exposure to liquids and/or total immersion in liquids.]
The semi-gloss finish is available on paper labels with a permanent adhesive. These labels are supplied on A4 sheets and are suitable for use with laser printers. To see the full range of sizes available, please visit our Semi-Gloss Labels range page. You can also Request A Sample to take a look at the semi-gloss finish for yourself.
