    You can choose from one of two materials to go with our FDA-approved toner. There’s polypropylene, which is waterproof, weatherproof and ideal for most uses. There’s also paper, which costs a little less and is completely food-safe for direct contact with edible items. Both options come with a silky matt finish for that luxurious look. Plus, with state-of-the-art 1440dpi Xeikon printers, we can produce some of the finest print detail available in the UK today. Even crisp text down to only 0.5mm is possible, which ensures that any design will look razor sharp and beautifully vivid.


    You can select your own custom shape and size measurements to fit any product, and if you don’t have your own artwork to upload, we can create it for you. Need a hand with ordering your matt labels? Our friendly UK customer support team is here to help.

    Benefits of Using Matt Labels

    The benefits of using matt labels are numerous, with the main one being their silky, non-reflective finish that creates a different look compared to gloss. Without having any shiny or reflective properties, matt labels create a classy look that exudes sophistication for any product or item.

    Matt labels are highly customisable and available in either matt polypropylene or matt paper, which is food-safe for edible products.

    Matt is ideal for adding the finishing touch to a more luxurious, high-end product, as the non-reflective finish of a matt label offers an opulent simplicity. And since gloss is typically more popular, matt labels can be a differentiator to help your products to stand out better on the shelf.

    Overview of Matt Labels

    Created with our state-of-the-art Indigo printers and high-vibrancy ink, each matt label comes with quality you can trust to represent your brand.

    Whatever size and shape you have in mind, even down to text as small as 1mm, we guarantee that your desired design will look crisp and clear under the matt finish.

    You can also upload your own artwork, or thanks to our in-house design studio, we can create a bespoke design for you if you don’t have your own yet.

    Different Types of Matt Labels

    Depending on the kind of product you would like to showcase, our matt labels can be made from two materials: matt polypropylene or matt paper.

    Matt paper is more affordable, and as it’s completely food-safe, it’s suitable for direct food contact.

    Polypropylene, on the other hand, is tear-resistant, UV resistant and waterproof, making it much more durable for regular handling. It’s also safe for use on the outside of food packaging, and would be the matt label of choice if there’s any outdoor exposure or risk of liquid contact.

    Application of Matt Labels

    To secure your newly created labels, we apply a strong adhesive behind every label to make them extremely resistant to any peeling. Simply apply your labels by hand, or use a label applicator for a smooth, flawless finish.

    Tips for Designing and Customising Matt Labels

    Depending on your skill set and experience, designing your very own custom matt label can be one of the most exciting aspects of label making.

    However, if your skills lie elsewhere but you still have a design idea in mind, you can request a bespoke design from us while ordering. Simply explain what you’re looking for, upload any logos or images you would like included, and we’ll do the rest. 

  • Artwork Guide

    We recommend the following guidelines if you’re uploading your own designs:

    • Files: Flattened PDF or JPEG (recommended) or EPS, AI, PSD

    • Bleed: 3mm
    • Safe Area: 3mm
    • Colour: CMYK

    Not sure about these specs? You can upload what you have, and with our Artwork Check Guarantee, we’ll manually review the artwork and inform you if any adjustments are required. Alternatively, our graphics department can edit your artwork and apply these fixes for you upon request, and then send you a proof for approval before printing.
