Unleash the Power of Textured Perfection

Textured labels can be achieved in several different ways. The best option depends on the look and feel you are going for as well as the end use. Labels can be given a textured feel through the choice of paper, application of ink, application of a varnish or spot varnish, as well as other specialist treatments.

Kraft and Natural Papers

Kraft and Natural Papers can provide texture to a label due to their inherent characteristics and manufacturing process. Kraft paper is typically made from natural fibres, such as wood pulp or recycled materials, which gives it a rougher and less refined surface compared to traditional glossy or smooth label materials. These are particularly popular choices for eco-friendly products, artisanal or handmade products, organic or natural products – brands aiming for a vintage or rustic aesthetic.

Sandpaper Varnish Finishes

Also known as textured or sand texture varnish, it is a type of coating applied to surfaces to create a rough or grainy texture reminiscent of sandpaper. It is commonly used in decorative or artistic applications to add visual interest and tactile appeal to surfaces. Many of our clients in the drinks industry have used this technique to create a more tactile, unique finish.

Embossed and Debossed Labels

Embossing involves pressing the label material between two metal dies to create a raised pattern or design. Embossing adds depth and dimension to the label, making the design stand out. Debossing is the opposite of embossing. It involves pressing the label material between two dies to create a recessed or sunken pattern. Both are very strong, ways of adding ‘texture’ to your label to give it a little something that helps it stand out from the competition. These effects are often used on high-end, luxury product labels as they come at a greater cost.
