Special Inks & Other Effects

High-build Varnish

Utilises screen-printing to create a clear or gloss ‘raised-surface’ finish – not only for visual appeal, but also for functional Braille print requirements. Used to convey safety warnings, but predominantly for creating maximum visual appeal for decorative labels.

Scratch-off Ink

Available for incorporating screen-printed ‘scratch-off’ panels in virtually any promotional label construction for prize-winning competitions.

Thermal Chromic Inks

A relatively new concept for the food and beverages industries, thermal chromic inks display particular colours only when exposed to specific temperatures.


Using similar methods as for the above options, panels containing fragrance can be printed in a variety of label formats – for either cosmetic ‘sampling’ or novelty applications.
