CUSTOM CLEAR LABELS SPECIAL FX

CLEAR LABELS WITH WHITE INK PRINTING (OPAQUE EFFECT)

Unlike opaque base label materials such as paper, clear labels are transparent because its base is PVC plastic—this really presents some print considerations if you are using this label material for the first time. If you have been printing paper labels or foil labels, some adjustment with your artwork must be done to ensure you get the correct prints with your new custom clear labels.

If you are printing on transparent labels, you are probably looking to achieve a “ no label” look, with the areas without any printing “disappearing” into the surface where you would apply the clear labels.

Printing as is on a transparent base will result to lighter, less saturated prints. Make use of this versatile label material and add flexibility to your custom clear labels by using white ink to increase its range of applications while enhancing image quality.

To remedy light prints, white ink can be used in two ways :

  • HIGHLIGHTS/SELECTIVELY USING WHITE INK PRINTING: Place a layer of white ink underneath specific art elements to increase brightness for certain text or images;
  • FLOOD/WHITE INK PRINTING UNDERNEATH THE WHOLE ARTWORK: Best for images and graphics that are solid pieces (no clear spaces in between), place a white flood underneath the whole area to be printed. This is to simulate the opaque white substrate for more vibrant colours.

To be able to achieve this, talk to your designer and specify that a new artboard needs to be created. This new artboard must indicate all the areas where white ink should be (under)printed, with solid shapes set in 100K (100% Black colour). Label this artboard “ White Ink”. If you need help setting this up, CONTACT US and we’ll help you get started.

CLEAR LABELS WITH FOIL STAMPING (METALLIC EFFECT)

Add more depth, polished detail, and lustrous elegance to your custom clear labels with foil stamping. This special process uses pressure to transfer metallic foil onto the surface of your clear label stock.

Choose to highlight specific parts of your label artwork, or foil the entire label to get an overall metallic sheen for a high end look. Just make sure the lines aren’t too thin as anything under 1pt can’t be foiled cleanly.

NOTE : Foil stamping is different from our gold and silver foil labels. Foil stamping does not utilize metallic-looking inks, rather it uses an extremely thin foil sheet and printing plates to create the metallic imprints.

To be able to achieve this, talk to your designer and specify that a new artboard needs to be created. This new artboard must indicate all the areas where foiling should be done, with solid shapes set in 100K (100% Black colour). Label this artboard “ Foil”. If you need help setting this up, CONTACT US and we’ll help you get started.

CLEAR LABELS WITH EMBOSSING (RAISED EFFECT)

Add custom decorative touches for a two-dimensional, premium custom label. A metal die and high pressure are used to create impressions on your label, for depth, texture, and tactile beauty.

For a more involved creative concept, embossing as a final touch increases a custom label’s visual premium for prime labels that outshine competition.

Use embossing for crisp lettering or prominent logos to highlight important visual elements. Just make sure the lines aren’t too thin as anything under 1pt can’t be embossed cleanly.

NOTE : Embossing can be done WITHOUT INK—this is called “ Blind Embossing”. This is most commonly done when creating a textured look to the whole label, such as applying patterns and camouflaged borders.

To be able to achieve this, talk to your designer and specify that a new artboard needs to be created. This new artboard must indicate all the areas where embossed effect would be, with solid shapes set in 100K (100% Black colour). Label this artboard “ Emboss”.

BRING YOUR PRODUCTS INTO THE SPOTLIGHT

How to Maximize Use of Your Custom Clear Labels

Inkable’s custom clear labels are in high demand due to the “ no label” look you get once this type of labels are applied on products as prime labels. Due to its transparency, these can also be used as professional label blurbs on promotional items without interrupting the prime label too much, blending seamlessly into the background.

AN IMPORTANT THING TO NOTE is that with regular print runs, inks will be lighter and colors are less saturated because this label stock is transparent.

USE WHITE INK SELECTIVELY underneath parts of your actual prints to make important text and other design elements on your label pop. White ink supports prints by providing an opaque base so that anything printed over it will have looked like it was printed on solid paper or plastic, instead of transparent material.

FLOOD THE WHOLE AREA UNDERNEATH WITH WHITE INK for solid logos and images to ensure that your printed-right-on-the-bottle look achieves better contrast and brighter, more saturated colors, as it were on an opaque material.

LEAVE OTHER AREAS CLEAN OF WHITE INK to make them appear more washed out, as in using a watermark effect. We don’t really suggest this, unless you absolutely know the effect you are going for. Prints without white ink underprinting can lead to unpredictably faint or faded-looking prints. If you’d like to pull off a creative concept, we suggest that you test this first by doing a HARD PROOF to see if it was indeed the aesthetic effect that you were going for.

TIP : If you are looking to place these labels on transparent packaging, protect your labels and give them a true seamless “ no label” look by getting your product labels done in reverse prints, and then affix them on the inside of pastry box windows, or clear plastic packaging. Your customers can appreciate your clear labels and run their hands on a smooth surface, while your actual clear labels are safe and won’t snag on anything outside.
