  • Additional info

    Addtional info

    The gloss sticker is used in a wide variety of ways, from adding extra sheen to labelling to covering an entire car in a vibrant eye-catching graphic design.  It's easy to see why this  glossy sticker is so popular – the finish will lift intricate designs and give stickers a real visual punch. Plus it's durable. People opt for gloss when they want a sticker that can deal with the rigours of the elements – plastic gloss stickers can last up to five years outside without fading or peeling.  However, it's worth remembering gloss is not recommended if you need to write on the label.

    Widespread use of gloss finish in sticker production emerged in 1960 when the Italian newspaper moguls Benito and Giuseppe Panini in Milan set up the hugely successful Panini sticker company.  The company became famous for its football sticker collections and by 1970 it was the first sticker company to produce stickers for the football World Cup. 

    The company went on to be hugley successful on the back of its gloss sticker production and Panini recently produced stickers for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.  In the past 10 years the technology has been adapted to great success in the vehicle industry, as gloss finish vinyl has been used to wrap cars among other vehicles.

    KPMF kicked things off with a full UK taxi wrap in 1993, everything from planes to trains as well as fleets of cars are now wrapped in glossy vinyl. As the technology developed, options for gloss, matte, printable and even colour-changing vinyl wrap films became available.

    How is a gloss sticker made?
    Plastic gloss stickers are made from a combination of polypropylene film, flexible clear or white calendered polymeric or monomeric vinyl, or a cast vinyl and either permanent or easily removable adhesive. Polymeric and monomeric vinyl offers either short- or long-term application. Monomeric film is more often than not a 1-3 year class and the Polymeric 4-6 year grade.

    Polymerics are softer and are chiefly used for a gloss coating, although semitransparent and matte finishes are obtainable. Most films are created through the process of chill-roll. In this procedure the melt coming out of the level film die can be placed onto either a chrome plated, highly polished or matt finish chill-roll. A plasticiser is put in the liquid vinyl resin to bring forth the gloss effect, this is normally Resoflex R-296.

    Calendered vinyl is created by propulsion of a heated mixture through calendering rollers.  This is double-quick and, as a consequence, a cheaper method of production.  Calendered vinyl is more liable to suffer from shrinkage due to the manufacturing process. Cast vinyl is used when a more complex and stable application is needed. Liquid resin is glazed onto a highly polished substrate to produce an extremely thin film of vinyl.

    • Clear Labels with Opaque & White Elements

      The toners we use to print on clear materials are slightly transparent, this means that for the parts that you require to be opaque or to add full colour images we have to create a white base layer on the artwork behind the colour or image, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner (beneath the CMYK artwork, beneath images or on it's own).

      We can set up your artwork in our design studio, please describe which areas you require to be white or opaque in the notes box on the upload artwork page.

      Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.

      For an in-depth guide of how to setup labels with white elements please click here.

    • Labels with Metallic Elements

      The way we create metallic colours is by using a silver substrate and applying a thin layer of CMYK toner to create the metallic colour required, when ordering please describe the colour required (or give the metallic swatch code from our color logic sheet which is included in all sample packs and can be ordered here FREE of charge) in the notes box at the upload artwork stage.

      The parts that you do not require metallic we have to create a white base layer on the artwork, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork, named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner beneath the CMYK artwork.

      Any white parts on your design that are not named “white” will be printed in a silver metallic.

      We can set up your white base for you here in our design studio, please describe which areas you do not require metallic in the notes box on the upload artwork page.

      Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.

    • Material & Finish Options

      Think about the appearance you are trying to achieve for your label, some materials may darken or lighten the appearance of your artwork once printed.

      The different finishes may also affect the way your labels appear, Matt effects will make the colours look a little dull or faded and a gloss finish might make them appear brighter.
