  • Additional Info

    Matt stickers

    Matt stickers are used for many applications from floor graphics to car decals; the sticker has come a long way in its long history. The matt sticker shares many similar production techniques to its close cousin the gloss sticker, and is often used in similar ways – as a promotional tool and for labelling. But matt stickers offer the end user a different tool. The flat, lustre-less finish won't absorb oils from food or fingerprints, which has enhanced its commercial use in food packaging and in labelling shop goods which are frequently handled.

    The flat dispersal of the film resins used to make up the facestock means that they are able to resist direct sunlight and avoid in-store light bounce on promotional materials, for example. Matt-finish surfaces can generally be written on with a variety of printing inks (including pens), so they are often used at trade shows, as floor graphics, price indicators and as short-term signage. Matt stickers offer strong resistance to tearing and can typically last up to five years.


    Matt had long been a popular product using paper stock, but it was 1981 Ohio-based plastics firm Cloplay Plastics filed the first patent for a plastic film with a matt finish. By the early eighties the sticker industry was well-established across the globe, thanks to the success of companies such as the Panini sticker company. Italian newspaper moguls Benito and Giuseppe Panini in Milan set up the hugely successful Panini sticker company.

    In 1960 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 hugely successful on the back of its 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. Matt finish vinyl, while not as widely used as gloss, is now 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 matt vinyl.

    How is a matt sticker made?

    Plastic matt 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 generally a 1-3 year grade and the Polymeric 4-6 year grade.

    Polymerics feel softer and are primarily available in a gloss finish, although translucent and matte finishes are also obtainable. Most films are made using the chill-roll process. In this process the melt emerging from the flat film die is poured onto either chrome plated, highly polished or matt finish chill-roll. With the latter, the most important factor is the rough surface.

    Calendered vinyl is made by pushing a heated mixture through calendering rollers. This is a fast, and as a result, cheaper method of production. Calendered vinyl is more likely to suffer from shrinkage due to the manufacturing process. Cast vinyls are used when a more intricate and stable applications are needed. Liquid resin is coated onto a highly polished substrate to produce an extremely thin film of vinyl.

      For a more in-depth guide about resolution click here.

    • 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.

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

    • 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.
