Label finishes

Varnishes and Lamination

A proper finish provides protection to the label and can greatly enhance the look, feel, and durability of a label. 


Varnishes protect the ink of the label from wear or scuffing during application, transportation, and use. Varnishes are often used instead of lamination for cost saving reasons.


Laminations offer greater durability and protection than a varnish. Most prime labels and consumer products use either a gloss or matte lamination. In outdoor or industrial applications, a PET lamination is highly recommended.
