PrintWeek Awards 2013 Label Printer of the Year - Label Apeel

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

But for the judges' comments, the Proteus label did all the talking. The product showed "beautiful print and stunning attention to details combined with elegant application of appropriate processes and stock selection".

The Label Apeel team in Leicester printed the silver polypropylene on a digital press, putting down two hits of black for good density. The labels were then put through an AB Graphic Digicon finishing line for an all-over matt over-printable varnish before going through a second time, adding screen and spot-gloss varnishes. The result? A high-gloss, high-build screen finish, combined with the silver substrate making the brand name leap off the label and give the product added shelf presence. A variety of processes give this high-impact label the best possible look. The result is a label that most traditional print processes would find hard to achieve. 0116 231 4555

Last year’s winner almost made it three victories in a row with its 2013 entry, with labels including Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash. The brief called for a fresh-looking label with an exclusive feel. The company in Littlehampton, West Sussex, did just that using clever repro, seven colours and three varnishes in what judges described a " great use of processes".
