Real metallic effects
Precious metal on printed matter brings you advantages
Precious metals have fascinated people since the dawn of civilization. Gold and silver have a very positive connotation in our subconscious and in society's perception. They build bridges to strong concepts in the human brain. Printed gold stands for prosperity, stable value, prestige, luxury, profit, anniversary as well as the gold medal of the winner in sport competitions. With silver, there is also an appeal to high-tech. When you have real metallic effects printed, you get these positive attributions for your product and brand.
In addition, real metallic effects are of course a great eye-catcher that invites people to engage with your printed product.
In the field of packaging, metallic effects on folding boxes serve as a psychological incentive to buy, i.e. such print enhancements can trigger the buying impulse within consumers.
In addition to visual enhancement, real-metal printing also plays a major role in counterfeit protection, for example on vouchers or certificates, because color copiers and conventional printing presses cannot reproduce the real metal.

Prints with metal coating
We metallize both the entire surface and partial areas, such as texts or logos.
In addition, we metallize either flat, in three-dimensional relief, or with microscopically fine structures incorporated into the metallization, allowing us to create patterns, texts, logos or even images.
For the metallization of paper, cardboard, plastics and self-adhesive foils, we use real metal in wafer-thin form.
This is how we magically conjure up, among other things, a genuine metallic look on magazine covers, book covers, image brochures, vouchers, business cards, packaging, wing folders, tags or stickers.
