FXC Series Narrow-web Holographic Flexo Cold Foil

13 Oct 2023

Holographic flexography is a printing technique that combines flexography, a high-speed printing method, with cold foil application and holographic effects. This process allows holographic patterns to be applied to labels or packaging materials during printing. Flexography uses flexible relief plates and is particularly suitable for large-scale production. Cold foil application involves transferring a metallic foil to the substrate without the need for heat.

The holographic element adds a three-dimensional, dynamic quality to the printed material, enhancing its visual appeal. Holographic flexo cold foil is widely used for regular labels, shrink-sleeve labels, in-mold labels (IML), plastic tubes, etc. for creating eye-catching and distinctive product labels.
