Oil labels: how to resist the drop
To get oil labels that stand out on the shelf it is essential to make new graphic choices that are consistent with the image of your brand. Moreover, it is very important to know how to choose the right materials that guarantee a long life of your oil labels.
Oil can put a strain on your adhesive labels as a single drop can compromise the aesthetic appearance of the label itself. To keep the appearance of your oil label intact, Oppaca recommends that you use a substrate specially created to resist contact with oil.
The right adhesive material for the right olive oil label. The choice of material should not be taken lightly. The material can completely change the perception of your wine and brand. Oppaca offers various types of media for printing olive oil labels.
Coated Oil Resistant Paper
This white wood-free paper is opaque, coated and treated to be resistant to oils and fats. This cardstock was created especially for the labelling products needing resistance to these ingredients and especially for olive oil. This is the best paper for enhancing the visual impact of your label, rendering the colours even brighter whilst maintaining a semi-gloss finish.
Felt-marked oil-resistant paper
This is natural paper with pure cellulose, having a felt-marked surface on both sides. The treatment for being resistant to oils and vegetable fats renders it perfect for packaging olive oil and any products needing such a process. The external appearance of the paper has the same features as Felt-marked Paper.
Plastic and metallic materials
Plastic materials are made of polypropylene and can have glossy, opaque and transparent finishes. They are particularly suitable for the packaging of products such as oil as they are highly resistant and anti-drop and the creation of transparent labels.
This polypropylene film is white, glossy, bioriented and features a top-coated finishing. It is suitable for olive oil labels that need to be long-lasting and resistant to moisture, such as for cosmetics and beverages. From an aesthetic perspective, this material renders colours brighter and super glossy for a highly effective visual impact.
Matte polypropylene is a white, opaque polypropylene film with a top-coated treatment. As in the glossy version, it is recommended for olive oil labels where long life and resistance to humidity are required. It makes the colors more intense while maintaining a very refined matte finish.
It is a transparent, glossy, bi-oriented polypropylene film with a top-coated treatment. The clear version, like the glossy and the opaque, is recommended for olive oil labels where long shelf life and moisture resistance are required but, unlike these two, it is great for creating clear olive oil labels to apply on bottles. whose content you want to show through a "no label look" effect.
The transparent finish of this material is ideal if you want to make the contents of the package visible. Using selective opaque white, it is possible to create transparent parts on the adhesive label itself. The selective opaque white is a very opaque ink that serves as a base on transparent materials for the subsequent printing of shades. The areas that will be left transparent must be free of selective opaque white. The selective opaque white must in fact be present only on those areas of the adhesive label that must be opaque and conceal the content inside.
Metallic silver paper
It is a shiny silver metallic paper, free from wood and composed of a layer of high gloss vacuum laminated aluminum. It is great if you want to achieve a reflective and sparkling effect that will make your wine stand out on the shelf.
Protection and finishing
The protective varnish, a colorless coating applied to the final printed work, allows you to safeguard the intense and brilliant colors of your olive oil labels from exposure to the sun and abrasion caused by transport. You can choose between a glossy finish, recommended to increase color saturation and at the same time ensure a good degree of protection; and a matte finish, if you are looking for elegance and refinement for your olive oil label. The natural substrates are painted with a water-based paint that does not alter either the color or the texture of the paper, while in the case of glossy substrates it is recommended to use a protective glossy varnish that does not alter the appearance of the substrate.
Oppaca cares about your satisfaction and the quality of its products, which is why it applies a layer of protective varnish to all the labels it produces to guarantee greater resistance over time.
You can choose between:
- Matt protective varnish
- Glossy protective varnish
Lamination is a process that allows you to protect your personalized olive oil labels. It is a very thin film of plastic material that is applied to the printed substrate and allows, in addition to a good degree of protection, to give brightness or opacity to your final work. The main advantage of lamination is the ability to protect the surface of the olive oil label from any drops of product that could ruin it. Lamination is the solution to this problem. You can choose between different types of finishes: glossy, if you want to increase the saturation of the colors in the olive oil label; opaque, if you want to give the label a more elegant and refined look; and soft-touch to make the olive oil label velvety.
You can give a final touch to your olive oil label with:
- Glossy Lamination
- Matte Lamination
- Soft-Touch Lamination
With hot foil, or hot stamping, you can intervene on the intensity and brightness of the colors but above all give some parts of the graphic design a metallic effect, in terms of color and texture. The printing process consists in making a thin metal sheet, called hot foil, adhere to the olive oil label due to the effect of heat and pressure. You express your imagination and choose from different shades the one that best suits your needs. The warm reflections of the Ducal Gold are perfect if you want to achieve a classic style while the Glossy and Opaque Gold are excellent for highlighting some details of the olive oil label thanks to the elegant and reflective golden nuances. The particularity of Copper and its shades tending to orange and red is instead recommended for creating labels with a strong personality. Finally, with Shiny and Opaque Silver you can embellish your olive oil labels with more or less reflective silver effects and focus on more modern atmospheres.
High-Build Gloss Varnish
High-build gloss varnish is a screen printing process that allows you to highlight some graphic elements of the olive oil label, creating a glossy three-dimensional effect. To achieve this result, screen printing frames are used that allow high-precision printing, both in large and small sizes. It is recommended to embellish the olive oil label both visually and to the touch and thus emphasize elements such as your brand name.
Gloss Spot Varnish
The gloss spot varnish is a printing technique that allows you to bring out some details of the olive oil label and to increase the saturation of the colors without creating embossed effects. The details are highlighted thanks to exposure to UV rays, a step in the printing process. The result is an irresistible effect to the touch and with a brilliant appearance, excellent for creating olive oil labels that can capture the attention of your customers.
Dry embossing is a printing process that allows you to create three-dimensional effects on some elements of the olive oil label. Thanks to a metal punch and a plastic male, the material is deformed by pressure, creating pleasant touch effects.
