Make your products stand out and communicate the luxury of your brand with a custom metallic label. Our metallic plastic labels are waterproof and oil-resistant, making them ideal for a variety of products like body lotions, essential oils, nutraceuticals, and food and beverage items.
You have options when it comes to the look and feel of your metallic labels. We print on metallic base materials, including metallic paper, metallic plastic, and rainbow hologram plastic, to achieve a shimmery shine. We use translucent inks, so any color printed directly onto the material will retain the metallic effect through the ink. If you’d like certain areas to be a solid color or opaque, we’ll print a primer layer of spot white ink underneath the ink, ensuring that you achieve the precise look you want.

Our Silver Metallic Plastic, Silver Metallic Paper, or Rainbow Hologram Plastic are great choices for an eye-catching look! Metallic materials work for virtually any industry or purpose where you want a pop of shine to your label.
If you have a product that requires refrigeration, or contact with moisture or oils, try our Silver Metallic Plastic or Rainbow Hologram Plastic. Being both waterproof and oil resistant, plastic is perfect for a variety of uses, whether your product is a vitamin supplement, food or beverage, or used for bath and body. Silver Metallic Paper is a more cost-effective metallic option that gives your packaging a unique, high-end look without the high-end price! This material is best for uses that will not include contact with water or oils.
Once you have chosen the perfect metallic material for your product, you will choose a laminate to finish off your label. Laminating a label gives it a more heavy-duty staying ability and unbeatable durability that can stand up against sunlight, moisture, oil, fingerprints, solvents, and scuffing. Choose Gloss Laminate for high metallic shine, or a Matte laminate for a more subtle, smooth look.
We use Color + White (5/c) printing when you choose a metallic material. Without white ink, all of the print will appear metallic because anything printed directly onto the silver will still allow the metallic effect to shine through. Where you want portions to be non-metallic, we print a primer layer of white ink first (called spotwhite) underneath your ink colors first. Since white ink is fully opaque, anywhere this layer is printed will block the metallic properties and appear non-reflective. You will want to provide us with a “spotwhite” layer (set to 100% magenta so we can see where you intend it) in your artwork, or provide us information on where you want white ink printed behind your artwork when you place your order.
Pro tip!: Because the raw Silver Metallic materials are naturally darker, low percentage colors (where any of the CMYK values are below 15%) that are not backed with white ink may not show up very saturated. Need advice? Give our Experience Team a shout and we’ll be happy to help make sure your metallic labels turns out exactly as you envisioned.
Absolutely! Frontier has a wide variety of special kiss-cut shapes to choose from. (Kiss-cut simply means that the shape of your sticker is cut out on a roll ,leaving the liner/backing material in place.)
If we don’t have that kiss-cut shape you have your heart set on, you can custom order one! Custom shapes offer you the freedom to be uniquely creative with your branding. Whether it’s a scalloped edge to match your company’s aesthetic or a sticker shaped like an ice cream cone, the options are endless! Ordering a custom shaped die is a one-time fee of $350, and afterwards, you have that shape available forevermore at no additional charge. Let your imagination run wild, and we’ll bring that custom-shaped vision to life.
