Paper & Foil
Paper is the canvas of every label. Choosing the right paper or substrate is important to achieving the right look and feel with any label. Uncoated papers like those listed below give great contrast to shiny finishing options like foil and gloss varnish while coated papers and smooth substrates like BOPP give excellent ink reflectivity and color saturation.
