Metallic Decals

Printing Metallic Labels and Metallic Decals

Printing on a metallic substrate is one way to create an awesome and professional looking metallic decal or label. For example, when 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 shiny metal of the substrates will shine through the ink and will make the printed color shinny. Using a white under-print, we can make a part of the label shinny and part of the label opaque. Contact one of our Label Specialists to discuss how your great looking label will look on one of our metalized substrates which includes chrome silver, brushed aluminum, and metallic silver. We can 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 includes 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 for many years outdoors.
