CUSTOM KRAFT LABELS SHAPE AND SIZING
With Inkable Australia, you can print any size that you require within our sizing guidelines (1”x 1” up to 12” x 18”) and enjoy hassle-free and cost-effective kraft label printing, with no additional setup fees.
Our standard shapes are :
* FOR SQUARE AND RECTANGLE PAPER LABELS, corners can either be straight or rounded, depending on your custom kraft label needs.
* FOR DIE CUTS (A.K.A. CUSTOM SHAPES), please use our CUSTOM ORDER FORM.
Uncoated paper has a “ Matte” finish because it is not shiny paper. It is a term meant to describe uncoated paper and is different from matte laminate, which is a low-shine paper coating. This premium uncoated brown stock has a smooth surface, not at all like the uncoated paper you would generally see in inexpensive paperback novels.
CUSTOM PAPER LABELS SPECIAL FX
KRAFT LABELS WITH FOIL STAMPING (METALLIC EFFECT)
Add more depth, polished detail, and lustrous elegance to your custom kraft labels with foil stamping. This special process uses pressure to transfer metallic foil onto the surface of your kraft 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.

KRAFT 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”. If you need help setting this up, CONTACT US and we’ll help you get started.

How to Maximize Use of Your Custom Paper Labels
Kraft labels are special because of the immediate personality they provide for your brand. While you can choose to do standard labels, printing the same artwork on kraft label material instantly changes the look and feel of your custom labels.
Also, kraft labels do not have any laminate or coating on them, which means they are not reflective or high-shine and makes these best for applications that will require finishing touches (handwritten details) to personalize each label.
FOR BEST QUALITY PRINTS, stay away from light to medium browns and reds if you are using these colors for important text because they won’t print as clearly on brown kraft labels. Stick to black or white especially if the text are details of your product or event—this guarantees good printability and readability on your custom kraft labels.
MAKE YOUR LABELS LAST LONGER. Kraft labels do not have any protective laminate or coating on them, which means that they are neither waterproof nor moisture-proof. This lends to a shorter life span in terms of ink rubbing off and labels getting damaged with moisture. Remember to store your kraft labels in a dry place, not exposed to sunlight, as these labels fade more quickly because they are not reinforced by coating or laminate.
TIP : As the stock is not white, colors will print darker due to the paper base color. Your artwork previously printed on white stock will translate differently on this stock, and there is less contrast unless you adjust your color values. Especially if it is your first press run, we suggest that you test colors first by doing a HARD PROOF to see if the colors turn out accurately with the new brown stock.
IMPORTANT ARTWORK TIPS
Please save your custom kraft label artwork as layered .PDF files so that our Prepress Team can properly check and report any issues to you. We can certainly work with .TIFF, .EPS, .PSD, and .AI files as well, but kindly make sure that you go through our FILE PREPARATION CHECKLIST below:
Proofread everything for typos and grammatical errors. To keep the integrity of your files, we do not check text.
Set all your images, objects, and the file’s colour mode to CMYK for digital printing.
Add a 3mm bleed to all sides.
All raster images recommended 350dpi
Minimum line thickness .57pt or 0.2mm
We print kraft labels to any size. Please double check artwork dimensions before sending to save on proofing time.
Do not include printer’s crop marks or registration marks in your PDF export.
Outline all fonts.
If you use a bleed, make sure your file has the correct bleed settings.
