Metallic Decals

Printing Metallic Labels and Metallic Decals

Printing on a metallic substrate is one way to create an awesome and professional metallic decal or label. For example, when using a chrome silver substrate and full color inks, shining metallic colors are produced because the inks are transparent. This is how to get the effect of a chrome red or chrome blue. A white under-print is also a great option, when trying to achieve a look that seems to “pop”, by making part of the colors opaque instead of shiny.

Contact one of our Label Specialists to discuss how great your label will look on one of our metallic substrates which includes chrome silver, brushed silver, matte metallic silver, metallic silver, and metallic gold. You can choose full color or spot print on any of our metallic substrates. The spot print has a 3 to 5-year outdoor rating without a laminate; however, TUFFLabels recommends an over-laminate to protect the labels from scratches and abrasion. The over-laminate will extend the print life which is useful in outdoor environments. Another durable option is a polyurethane dome, which will produce an outstanding label.
