What Are Embellishments?

For those of you who are new to the subject, you may ask, what are label embellishments? Embellishments are enhancements to a label design using various techniques to increase user interaction by engaging the senses. Our digital embellishing machine makes adding embellishments to your label a little simpler, using innovative technology that lowers the cost of production in a variety of ways

For example, purchasing extra tools and plates for authentic custom designs is no longer needed. This machine reduces the amount of manual labor involved with physically changing plates and adjusting machinery. Plus it reduces the time needed to upkeep these parts. This machine finishes premium custom labels with the most common digital label embellishments, such as:

How Does It Work?

First, we mount the printed label roll onto the machine. It goes through a corona curing process. This prepares the paper material for the lamination to stick properly to the paper. Then, the printed paper is “married” to your lamination of choice: glossy, matte, or soft-touch matte.

Second, the laminated material goes through the Spot UV application process. During this process, jets of clear, UV ink sprays onto the surface. We create a separate art file for this machine, so that any area you indicate to be raised, textured or extra glossy, this machine sprays the UV ink on those key areas.

With our two print heads, we can add spot UV and foiling at the same time! You can choose which areas of your design you want to stand out with a shiny, glossy surface, and which areas you want to have a foil applied. Again, let us know in the notes when uploading your artwork.

Third, the UV light cures those selected areas you want glossy for unwavering durability and adds extra shine! Whether it’s creating a textured surface, such as a honeycomb, or the illusion of ever lasting drops of water, or adding glossy areas against a matte surface, this process creates a durable, scratch-resistant surface.

Fourth, if you choose a foil for your custom label, it’s pressed on another layer spot UV ink before it cures. We have four different colored foils available: Gold, Silver, Copper and Holographic. We mount this roll of foil to the machine, from there, it is pressed together on top of the tacky, UV ink. It then goes through another curing process to harden the ink and make the foil lasting.

Finally, you have a ravishing custom label for your product full of elegance and originality.
