Our Services

Hot Foil labels mean different things to different people, and we find that a few customers are getting confused and are possibly ordering the wrong material or label for their needs.

Let's Explore Foil Materials...

There are different types of foil labels, and we are referring to what the actual label is made from, not hot foil label printing, which is a process. (Which we do, so don’t worry if that is also what you are looking for, you are in the right place!).

Foil “Look” labels: This is a cheaper, cost-effective solution; the material is usually polyester or polypropylene with a coated silver or gold finish. Matt or Glossy.

Foil Label – This is where you get a few options:

1: Labels printed on a metallised gold or silver PVC with a permanent adhesive; again, this can be a glossy or matt finish in gold or silver as the base, with other wording or images printed on top; this is the closest you get to a foil label with “label properties”…flexible/bendable stickers

2: For a foil label with the benefits of metal, we can supply a sublimation print of your design onto a 0.13 anodised aluminium label. This label is pretty sturdy with medium flex so we can fix it to a curved surface.

3: Hot foil labels. The base can be paper, polypropylene, PVC, etc., and your design is pressed or foiled onto the base, creating a gold and silver top layer of your label design.

Aluminium Metal Label

Again this is a super hardy label used for harsh temperatures/environments, usually used externally or on machinery or equipment branding. The base is an anodised 1mm aluminium label, and the print is sublimation printed and is protected “under the surface”. Being a rigid label, we can fix this via screws or rivets into the pre-drilled holes or self-adhesive backed.

If you are still a little unsure of the best material to use, give us a call or pop a few details through our enquiries form, and we will find the best material for your application.

What to Print

With the help of new technologies and printing options, we can now print or mark pretty much any design you may need onto a metal label for you. This includes colour designs and logos to barcodes and numbering. Customers use these metal labels with sequential numbers as asset marking or branding equipment.

Due to the hardy nature of the metal and fixings options of the labels (screw/adhesive), these metal labels are becoming increasingly popular.

We appreciate that not everyone has endless budgets for their labels, regardless of how they need them to perform.

So we will work with you as much as possible, bearing in mind the label design and the end use; we have a couple of different printing and marking processes for our hot foil labels so we are sure we will have something to meet your needs.

Lead Time?

We aim to get all custom labels to our customers within 7-10 working days; due to the process for metal labels, our lead time is 10-14 working days from artwork approval.

For urgent enquiries, we can look at other functions or, for smaller quantities, move other orders around to accommodate urgent requests.

We don’t like to drive customers’ lead times, so please only ask for a quicker lead time if necessary.
