Foil printed boxes or digitally printed labels?

As trends change and evolve, branding is getting more and more popular.

We offer foil printing on our boxes which is a more traditional method of printing, with high quality metallic and colour finishes. We have also recently introduced full colour digitally printed label printing.

In this blog, we look at the difference between the two and how they can benefit your brand to help you choose the best option for your business.

Foil printing is the perfect solution for either small or large established companies wanting to completely brand their packaging.
It gives a luxury and flawless appearance and looks gorgeous on any gift box or bag.

Digitally printed labels are a great solution for easy and changeable branding.
Digital printing offers short lead times and no restrictions on logos.
Not only that, but labels stick to most products so you can have full-colour personalisation across your brand.

Our Choice?

Overall we feel the best, most professional solution is to reap the benefits out of both solutions.
 Use the foil printing to enhance your branded gift boxes, by giving them a luxurious and finished appearance.
Labels can be used to bring your first impression user experience to life, using them to secure tags and tissue paper or personalising your mailing boxes for a polished branded experience as soon as it arrives at your customer's door.
Using both of these solutions can really enhance your brand; however, what's great is both solutions are cost effective so ideal for small business start-ups all the way up to established businesses.

We would love to see what you have chosen or to hear your thoughts if you've used these services already.
