Choosing the Perfect Finish for Your Labels

At Anglia Labels we offer a range of laminate options, which offer varying functionalities and aesthetic appearances. The choice of laminated label depends on the intended application, design requirements, and desired visual effects. We are on hand to offer advice about what finish would best suit your label. 

Gloss Lamination

Gloss lamination adds a shiny and reflective finish to the label. It enhances the vibrancy of colours, creates a glossy appearance, and provides a smooth surface that is resistant to scratches and moisture. Gloss lamination is commonly used to enhance the visual appeal of labels and make them more eye-catching.

Matt Lamination

Matt lamination provides a non-reflective and velvety finish to the label. It adds a subtle and sophisticated appearance, reducing glare and minimising fingerprint visibility. Matt lamination is often chosen for labels that require a more subdued and understated look.

Soft-Touch Lamination

Soft-touch lamination provides a tactile experience with a velvety and luxurious feel. It creates a matt, smooth, and slightly rubberised texture. Soft-touch lamination adds a high-end and premium touch to labels, making them stand out by offering a unique sensory experience.

Anglia Labels have a diverse range of laminate options for you to explore, tailored to meet your application, design, and visual preferences.

Benefits of using a laminate

Using a laminated label offers several benefits that enhance the overall quality and functionality of the label:


Lamination provides a protective layer that enhances the label’s durability beyond that of a varnish. It helps to guard against scratches, tears, and abrasion, ensuring that the label remains intact and legible even in challenging environments or during rough handling. 

Moisture and Chemical Resistance

Laminated labels are often resistant to moisture, water, and various chemicals. The lamination acts as a barrier, protecting the underlying print and preventing ink from smudging or running when exposed to liquids or certain substances.

Fade Resistance

Some laminations, particularly those with UV-resistant properties, provide protection against fading caused by exposure to sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet (UV) light.
