    What Are Gloss Labels

    Gloss labels are vivid, shiny labels that help products and goods to maximise their distinctive brand assets. This increases the likelihood that a brand will be recognised and remembered in all retail environments. Crafted from gloss polypropylene or paper material with fully FDA-approved toner, durability and a professional finish are guaranteed. Ideal for candles, cosmetics, glass bottles and almost any kind of packaging, the fully customisable labels will help you to stand out from your competitors.

    Benefits of Using Gloss Labels

    Enhanced Appearance

    Utilising 1440dpi Xeikon printers offers a sleek, eye-catching appearance like no other. High-shine gloss encourages a shimmering aesthetic, while adding an extra layer of security to your labels with its wipe-resistant finish. As well as this, the size and shape of your labels are entirely in your hands, eliminating the need for any kind of compromise when it comes to appearance.

    Durable and Long-lasting

    Unlike standard paper labels, high-gloss versions come with a wipe-resistant feature that allows them to remain striking and with a ‘like new’ appearance for as long as possible. If you opt for polypropylene labels, you can expect both waterproof and weatherproof features, meaning that none of your carefully devised designs will be lost or damaged in transit.

    Versatility in Application

    To secure your newly created labels, a heavy-duty adhesive is required, in order to avoid any peeling or lifted corners further down the line. Thanks to being able to choose the exact size and shape of the label you require, the application process is entirely in your hands, with a full re-print or refund quality guarantee there to offer reassurance.

    Professional and High-quality Finish

    Your product packaging is the first thing potential customers will see, so it is important to create a lasting impression - something that can effortlessly be achieved with a high-shine gloss label. Thanks to our state-of-the-art 1440dpi Xeikon printers, even text as small as 0.5mm can be made clear and arresting, meaning no small print will go unnoticed.

    We only use gloss polypropylene or paper material with a high-shine finish along with FDA-approved toner. Polypropylene is waterproof and weatherproof for any packaging, whilst paper is fully food-safe for direct contact with food items, so there’s the perfect option for any application. Plus, if you’re looking for the same quality labels you’ll find on supermarket shelves from the biggest brands, then our 1440dpi Xeikon printers are just the ticket. Even text as small as 0.5mm is crisp and vivid, so every element of your design will look razor sharp.

    Popular Uses of Gloss Labels

    Product Packaging

    Versatile and flexible, gloss labels can be utilised for a wide range of different products. Our high-shine paper material is fully compatible with food items, allowing them to be ideal for anybody stepping into the culinary sector. Whatever industry you are entering into, make sure to give your potential consumers the best first impression possible, with a professional yet personalised touch.

    Marketing and Promotional Materials

    Looking to expand and spread the word about your already-established brand? There is truly no better way to keep your company at the forefront of people’s minds than with branded, fully customised merchandise, such as reusable coffee cups, water bottles, china mugs, and more - complete with an alluring gloss label.


    Factors To Consider When Choosing Gloss Labels

    Material and Finish Options

    A machine-finished polymer coating is applied to our gloss-finish products, making them less easy to write on than our uncoated versions, but perfect for drawing attention to your desired artwork and information. If a handwritten finish is what you are looking for, an uncoated label will be more absorbent.

    Printing Requirements and Compatibility

    We recommend the following guidelines if you’re uploading your own designs. These suggestions will allow you to create the crispest, clearest version of the design you have in mind, to avoid any kind of disappointment during the process:

    • Files: Flattened PDF or JPEG (recommended) or EPS, AI, PSD
    • Resolution: 300dpi
    • Bleed: 3mm
    • Safe Area: 3mm
    • Colour: CMYK

    If you find yourself set on a design that is not compatible with our guidelines, our expert team of graphic designers can, with your consent, edit your artwork to make it consistent with our directions. You are also free to upload any design with specs you are not certain of, for our team to review before proceeding with label creation.

    Customisation and Design Options

    Creating your very own design is, depending on your skill set, one of the most exciting aspects of label-making. However, if graphic design is not your strong suit, why not let one of our expert illustrators draw something up for you? With your guidance and their know-how, a flourishing collaboration can begin, culminating in a gloss label you can be proud of.


    Print Quality and Resolution

    We pride ourselves on providing high-resolution printing options, without a premium price tag. Thin, flimsy labels come with the risk of becoming easily damaged or not standing the test of time, which is why we opt for gloss paper with a thickness of 90gsm. High-quality CMYK ink is used to ensure that each design remains vibrant and shiny for years to come, offering unbeatable resolution quality each time.

    Handling and Application of Labels

    When it comes to label application, doing so evenly is crucial. Decide exactly where you want the label to be placed on the bottle, tin or container, taking time to be certain that it is perfectly central. Take things slowly and ensure that there are no air bubbles under the paper before you press down. Before picking up the product and handing it, make sure that the adhesive has dried completely. If not, the gloss paper may migrate or lift.
