Embossing creates a 3D graphic that is appealing to consumers. The term “impressing” enables one to distinguish an image lowered into the surface of a material, different from an image raised out of the surface of a material. Both are considered “embossing”.
Extended Text Labels
Extended Content & Booklet Labels are produced on rolls for manual or automatic application. Whether you want a foldout (pamphlet) or booklet label, with a die cut easy open tab and/or re-sealable features, we have many different formats for extended text labels. We custom construct our extended text labels to fit your product’s needs.
Instant Redeemable Coupons
An IRC is constructed with a dry release label on top of another label, allowing for the top label to be peeled back or removed without residue on the bottom label. This construction is used for on-pack, instant redeemable coupons, promotions, and games or sweepstakes.
A specialized printing technology using rapidly heated pins that selectively activate a heat sensitive coating applied to the facestock thus forming the desired image. No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed material. Direct thermal media is more sensitive to light, heat, and abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material.
A printing technique which uses a heated ribbon to produce durable, long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials.
Thermal Transfer Labels and Tags are available in paper or synthetic formats. Paper labels and tags are generally inexpensive, offer excellent print quality, and can be used in a multitude of general-purpose applications. Whitlam offers a large selection of standard and customizable labels to suit any application. You can select from a wide variety of sizes, materials, and specialty adhesives to create a solution that will meet your specification needs. Synthetic thermal transfer labels and tags are durable, long lasting, and resistant to abrasion, moisture, heat, tearing, and chemicals.
Highly transparent labels create the impression of graphics directly printed onto the surface, but aren’t as costly. A stylish custom-made label adds unique sophistication to your product and sets it apart on the shelf. Needless to say, the no-label look can be achieved with all types of printing techniques, in any color and with embossing effects.
