Labels are an informative and an effective marketing tool that plays a key role in enhancing brands and products. Each and every detail of a label has to be designed with great care. Innovation and distinction make a label stand out but equally essential is its finish.

VFP Ink Technologies offers a wide range of inks which provide glossiness and protection specifically made for labels. Always exploring new technologies to respond to its customer’s needs, VFP Ink Technologies created the UVILABEL range to offer an easy to use and performant product for both professional and Industrial printing.

UVILABEL is a high gloss UV ink, up to 95% (according to ISO 2813), that is dedicated to the label market for rotary and flatbed screen printing machines. 

UVILABEL offers a high chemical resistance to protect the colors and design of labels. It is the perfect finish ink for labels in cosmetics, beverages, industrial packaging and every other application which requires a glossy finish aspect.

UV technology avoids VOC and therefore has no impact on the environment and the health of operators.

Mostly used in the wine and luxury goods sectors, LABELMAT combines high contrast, finesse and elegance to every label designed with flatbed screen printing machines.

LABELMAT is a matte UV ink (10% in glossy scale according to ISO 2813). It can also be mixed with the UVILABEL range to obtain a satin luster finish while offering a strong scratch resistance.

Soft Touch Varnish

Soft-Touch-varnish

Printing a soft touch varnish on labels, packaging, cards or any other products is one of the special effects that adds value to the final product. Soft touch varnish is not only a great tool for emotional marketing but also a way of distinguishing a brand or a product from the competition. Adding soft touch varnish on Champagne, wine labels or luxury packaging personalises and underlines a brand while enhancing the consumer experience.

VFP Ink Technologies developed a UV Water based varnish with soft touch effect for flatbed screen printing machines.

Major advantages are matte effect, scratch resistance and anti finger marks. It also allows hot stamping and overprinting. UV water based Soft Touch varnish offers many opportunities to get great special effects.
