Matte – Contrast Film Branding

Unlike BiaxOP film, matte paper produces nice quality prints but does not have that vibrant color finish. Matte paper is not vulnerable to being marred by fingerprints and it produces a non-glare photo.

Common Properties

  • Matte film is not glossy and therefore finger marks or glare from the sun are not a problem.
  • When printing macro shots, portraits or other images that rely in small details, you may be better off using BiaxOp film.
  • Matte finished film is typically chosen for its unique combination of smooth texture, easy readability, and bold contrast qualities. Matte is well known for its versatility and can be used with designs that contain white space, solid colors, photographs or a combination of these elements.
  • Matte finish paper has a dull coating applied to the paper surface that yields a non-shiny, smooth finish that is superior for color contrast and text clarity.
  • The matte finish enhances soft and simple designs such as those with a focus on text, lines or borders while complementing colorful designs like landscapes and illustrations.

BiaxOP – Glossy Film Branding

When glossy film is extruded and stretched in both the machine direction and across machine direction it is called biaxially oriented polypropylene (gloss). Biaxial orientation increases strength and clarity. BiaxOP branding is primarily found in the gifting, resale and retail industries – with the branding process found throughout popular products such biscuit tins, gift tins, mint tins, wine tin boxes and more

Common Properties

  • BiaxOP is resistant to moisture and humidity and is water-resistant
  • It is a very strong and durable plastic material.
  • BiaxOP can be manufactured in a variety of colors, both transparent and solid.
  • Because of the durability of vinyl, products made from this material have a long-life span and is widely used in the packaging industry across the globe.
  • Glossy finish paper has a high gloss coating applied to the paper surface that yields a smooth, shiny finish, vivid colors, vibrant images and excellent reproduction.
  • BiaxOP finished film is typically chosen for its polished texture, flashy appearance and superb color-contrast qualities.
  • BiaxOP is best used on full color designs that have bright solid colors, photographs or bold patterns. Designs that contain prominent headlines, rich colors and tones, lots of imagery and minimal text are well-suited for a glossy finish.
  • Text heavy designs tend to be difficult to read on a glossy finish — we recommend a matte finish for them.

GSMP – Gloss Paper Film

The term GSM is far from explanatory, but you can guarantee that it will come up when talking to any printer worth his or her salt. What does GSM mean and what does it mean for your printing? It’s worth noting that the experts here at Can It, SA’s leading tin supplying company, will gladly guide you to the correct decisions.

This trend holds true across printed tin boxes, small round tins, branded packaging, company booklets, company gift hampers, mint tins, lip balm tins, company chocolates and pretty much any printed gift product you can think of.

 Common Properties

  • Laser Gloss is a glossy paper that is an ideal choice for flyers, two-sided brochures and similar applications. It is an improved soft gloss with a glossier appearance. The product exists because of customer demand for a glossier brochure paper and was made possible by a more advanced paper manufacturing technique. It most closely resembles high quality magazine paper.
  • Glossy Paper refers to any coated papers designed to present an ultra-smooth to shiny appearance. Applications include brochures, advertising, flyers, one sheets, photographic printing and other presentation documents.

UVV – Ultra Varnish

UV coating, often called liquid lamination, is a highly protective, ultra-shiny gloss coating that we apply over aqueous coating and then cure on a special machine using ultraviolet light.

Common Properties

  • The solvent-free UV coating provides an extremely hard finish that’s chemical and abrasion resistant.
  • It makes details really pop! On deep colors, it results in a stunning, almost wet appearance.
  • Perfect when you want a durable, environmentally-friendly piece with a richer, high-end look and feel.

EMB or DBM – Embossing

Sheet Metal Embossing (EMB) and Debossing (DBM) are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse, back side).

Common Properties

  • Metal embossingis easy, fun, and a great technique for mixed and creative media art; embossed pieces can be used on tin boxes, handmade books, a collage and more.
  • The ability to form ductile metals.
  • Use in medium to high production runs
  • The ability to maintain the same metal thickness before and after embossing.
  • The ability to produce unlimited patterns, depending on the roll dies.
  • The ability to reproduce the product with no variation.
