Hot Foil Stamping
Hot foil labels, normally supplied on rolls, are suitable for many applications and provide excellent value for money. They are available in a variety of materials including self-adhesive vinyls, papers and polyesters. Specialties include tamper-evident and ultra-destructible products. Hot foil labels can be printed with variable information including serial numbers and barcodes. For maximum protection against abrasion, the labels are typically over-laminated with a clear film.
Flexo is a relief printing process, where the image to be printed is raised away from the non-printed areas. Recent improvements in the flexographic printing process have raised the print quality to the same level as more expensive offset lithographic printing. This, together with the very wide range of possible substrates, has resulted in a rapidly growing demand for flexographic printing. The process is fast and the print quality excellent making it the ideal solution for any label from added value through to high volume commodity products.
Digital printing is ideal for prototyping, variable data printing, personalization, customization, label proofing, quick response, and low quantities. Combine this with the full range of embellishments that are possible in our finishing department, and digital printing becomes a very attractive alternative for short to medium run lengths..
Bradley Nameplate has access to hundreds of symbols and agency marks that you can incorporate into your label upon ordering. Bradley will help you find the standard graphics necessary to use with your label and will follow the guidelines of the respective agencies where possible. Ultimately the customer is liable for proof of compliance.
Bradley has a variety of laminates that can be applied fully or selectively to the face, double sided or completely encapsulate the printed piece. Laminate finishes include a variety of gloss levels, matt, and texture giving protection against abrasion and/or heat.
For prototypes and production runs that do not justify expensive tooling. Nameplates or labels can also be imaged using a laser cutting process.
