To assist you in the decision-making process, we’ve compiled a helpful guide outlining the common finishes and paper stocks commonly used in label production. This will aid in narrowing down your options and making an informed choice that aligns with your vision.

Matt paper

Matt paper has a non-glossy, smooth finish. It is widely used for labels that require a sophisticated and understated look.

Gloss paper

Gloss paper has a shiny, reflective finish that enhances colours and creates a vibrant and eye-catching appearance. It is commonly used for labels that aim to grab attention, such as product labels, stickers, and marketing materials.

Semi-Gloss or Silk Paper

Semi-gloss paper falls between matt and glossy paper in terms of finish and sheen. It offers a subtle shine while maintaining readability and providing a smooth surface for printing.

Kraft paper

Kraft paper is a popular choice for labels that require a rustic and eco-friendly appearance. It has a natural, earthy look with a slightly rough texture. The brown colour of kraft paper adds a distinctive and environmentally conscious touch to the labels.

Thermal paper

Thermal paper is coated with a heat-sensitive layer that reacts to heat to produce printed text or images. Thermal paper offers fast and convenient printing without the need for ink or toner. It is used in thermal printers for its simplicity and ease of use.

There are literally thousands of options and permutations of paper labels that we can produce. Our experienced team know the right questions to ask to help guide you through the paper selection process.
