Get the most out of your design
Our aim is to help our customers get the most out of their design. Our design department advise and inspire you with printing recommendations to reach desired visual effect.
Moreover, they are also your safe link between the creative process of designing the packaging and the production phase making sure that colours and finish on your package are exactly as intended when the ideas become a reality.
To help you to differentiate, appeal to and involve your target customers, we offer a wide range of inks and decorative coatings printed with state of the art printing technology.
UV printing was introduced in Envases as early as 2005. Since it is superior to conventional printing, we now use UV printing whenever it is technically possible.
UV printing reduces CO2 emissions. Since UV prints can be cured in a fraction of a second with electricity-powered UV light, they no longer need 15 minutes of curing in a gas-heated oven. This reduces energy consumption by 60%* and at the same time eases our transition out of fossil fuels.
Furthermore, UV coatings are solids that do not contain either solvents or volatile components, which makes UV printing safer and free of chemical waste.
UV printing is not just a more sustainable way of printing – it also improves overall print quality. Prints can be evaluated and adjusted immediately, and colours are likely to be clearer, since UV curing eliminates any risk of yellowing.
- get the Recycles Forever logo on your metal packaging.
As consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about the impact of packaging on the environment, we support the adoption of a Recycling Mark. The logo - for use on pack symbolises the unique sustainability benefits of metal.
By using the logo, you have the opportunity of highlighting that you have chosen a sustainable material for your packaging and can educate and encourage the consumer to recycle.
Contact the design department if you want to apply the logo to your packaging design. They will help adapt the graphics and logo placement to your design.
The Metal recycles forever™ logo can be printed in colours that match your existing packaging design. This will help to ensure a harmonious impression, and also guarantees no increase in printing costs.
The text in the “METAL recycles forever™” logo has been localised into 19 different languages to ensure optimal consumer impact on each market.
It isn’t always that easy to imagine the effect of a different colour or lacquer on your packaging.
We use a set of decorative samples as a tool that gives you tangible examples of your options for printing on metal – the goal is to give you the best possible basis for making a decision, so you get the most out of your design.
Experience the individual lacquers, and get a feel for the effects and colour interplay of different techniques – the resources at your disposal to bring moods, dynamism and depth to your decoration.
