Bring textured detail to your label. Add three-dimensional quality. Embossing and debossing (including multi-level and sculptured 3D) create either a raised or dipped effect. Finished effect lends a subtle and sophisticated textural quality.
Although varnishes mostly provide protection to a label they also can be used to add premiumisation.
Standard low level varnishes printed using the flexographic print process are available in gloss, satin and matt with special additions like pearlescent, soft touch, reticulated, rough touch and frosted finishes.
Mid to high level varnishes printed using either flatbed or rotary silk screen can really enhance the look and feel of a label, these high builds work better in gloss but are also available in matt and we can also add glitter as another option.

Anti – Counterfeiting solutions are hard–to–copy features, integrated with labels, that enable authorities and/or consumers to tell between an authentic product and a counterfeit one. They can be combined with tamper-evident features to meet any required security level.
These include: Security holograms, Security papers, Security threads, IR taggants, Photochromic & thermochromic inks, Track & trace inks, Optical variable inks, Variable data or variably printed images. Micro text, QR codes, NFC and RFID.
To counteract pharmaceutical counterfeiters, we have created tamper-evident and void labels that comply with European Union Directive 2011/62/EU requirements. Our security labels can reduce the risk of packaging falsification and include destructible labels, box damage films, and void labels.
Carefully assessing these factors and the incorporation of multi-layer security features are an excellent way of protecting any brand at an optimal level.
