We are also happy to print the metallized materials for you, right through to finishing and shipping.

In addition to optical enhancement, metallizations also play a major role in counterfeit protection, since color copiers and conventional printing presses cannot reproduce the real metal.

More information on applications can also be found in the menu item Real Metallic Effects.

Metallized stickers - MetallicSticker

In addition to visual enhancement, metallizations also play a major role in counterfeit protection, since color copiers and conventional printing presses cannot reproduce the real metal.

The combination of metallization and microscopically fine embossing on self-adhesive paper is particularly attractive. This produces visually high-quality stickers that also offer good protection against counterfeiting. The microembossing is, beside graphic patterns, also able to incorporate names, text or logos.

Signage on metal plates

In the area of lettering, you can also have aluminum composite panels, also known as alu-dibond, printed with us. These are particularly resistant to bending and impact. They also withstand high wind pressure well and are subsequently used especially for durable lettering, such as construction site boards. Their core is made of plastic, the outer layers of thin aluminum. In contrast to single material metal panels, they are therefore cheaper and light-weighted.

Our advise, regardless of whether they are made of purely metal or aluminum composite: Instead of direct printing, it is better to use printed films. Those are, by the use of high-quality film and protective laminate, particularly durable, but can be easily changed or renewed if necessary. The carrier plate underneath then remains in use. This is good to your wallet and the environment at the same time.
