Whether your product is displayed on a shelf in a store or advertised online, you want your brand to stand out! Choose the right finish for your custom labels depending on your preference of style.  Glossy Labels have a shiny, reflective surface while Matte Labels have a more smooth finish. Both are available to you at no additional cost! Read on for more about the differences between these two options. 

(Looking for Clear Labels or Paper Labels? We have those too!)

Glossy vs. Matte Labels - What makes them different?

  • Glossy Labels are a perfect choice to help your label pop! With a super shiny finish that's both water and oil resistant, glossy labels are sure to stand out on a shelf.
  • Matte Labels provide a more modern take on product labels. A smooth-to-the-touch, satin-like matte finish gives your products a high-end feeling of natural texture and an organic product look.
    • Matte Labels can also be written on with a permanent marker, making it easy to use the same design across multiple products. We see a lot of customers leave areas in their designs intentionally for adding in quantities, volumes, flavors and more depending on the products they are selling.

Similarities between Matte and Glossy Labels

  • Oil & Water Resistant Lamination - Both of our Glossy and Matte Labels are covered in a lamination that is both oil and water resistant, perfect for displaying your products where these elements are present.
  • Custom Shapes - We offer custom shapes for your labels whether they are matte or glossy! As always, your products can be custom sized for your needs, at no additional cost!
  • Full Color - Your brand's colors are important. We can typically print within 95% accuracy when matching your colors and using a full color printing process.
  • Rounded Corners - All Glossy and Matte Labels come with rounded corners. This makes label application easy and once applied, you can trust the corners won't roll up.
