Label Finish Options

Insignia Labels can offer a range of finishes to all the labels that we produce. Many of our customers prefer the look and feel of our photographic quality custom labels without any additional finish whilst others prefer a different option. Some applications will require either a varnish or lamination to protect the label from the environment in which it will operate.


• Matt -Commonly used on wines and quality food items

• Matt Textured - Popular for rustic, organic products

• Satin - Popular when trying to achieve an 'untreated' look

• Gloss - Suitable for more promotional product in retail environments

• Supergloss - For a 'jump off the shelf' high quality look

• Soft Touch - For luxury goods

All of our varnishes can be overprinted using thermal transfer ribbons.


We offer both a gloss (by far the most popular option) or a matt lamination on our labels. There are two main reasons why many clients go for this lamination option:

• Protection - A laminate protects the label from dust, dirt, water and other elements. It also protects against chemical, solvent or hazardous substance spillage.

• Aesthetics - A gloss or matt laminate adds to the look of the label, from high end product labelling to the more industrial applications.


By combining one of the range of gold, silver, coloured or holographic decorative foils we hold to your digital labels. will give your labels a very high quality look.


We can cut labels to singles, or trim to a bespoke sheet size with multiple labels kiss cut on the sheet.
