Metallic decals are not only durable but are a very classy looking.
Printing Metallic Labels and Metallic Decals
Printing on a metallic substrate is one way to create a awesome and professional looking metallic decal or label. For example using the chrome silver substrate a label with shinning metallic colors is produced. This is how to get the effect of a chrome red, or chrome blue. because the inks are transparent the shinny metal of the substrates will shine through the ink will make the printed color shinny. Using a white ink layer under-print we are able to make a part of the label shinny and part of the label opaque. Contact one of our knowledgeable Team Members to discuss how your great looking label will look on one of our metalized substrates which include chrome silver, brushed aluminum, and metallic silver. We are able to print full color CMYK on any of our metalized substrates however a spot color print process is usually the preferred print process. Our spot print process included a ribbon thermal transfer system. The thermal transfer print has a 5 year life rating without laminate. However TUFFLabels recommends an over-laminate to protect from scratches and abrasion. The over-laminate can extend the print life up to 7 years outdoor durable.
