With the number of craft breweries and beverage companies increasing every day, you need a product label that will stand out from the crowd of competitors. Metallic labels are the perfect answer! The shiny, reflective appearance of them will make your product instantly eye-catching to any consumer. They also provide a bit of extra personality to your brew and can be used to illustrate your unique flavors with a fun, metallic twist.


Candle Labels

When thinking of products to use metallic labels on, you may not immediately think of candles. However, metallic materials can be great for adding an extra bit of luminescence to any candle. Play off the color of the candle itself, like in the image above, or go with a completely contrasting color scheme. However you choose to design your candle label, a metallic material can add an extra spark to this ordinary household product. Looking for more candle label inspiration?

Chemical and Cleaning Product Labels

Adding metallic elements to your cleaning product labels can help invoke the "sparkling clean" feel you want your brand to portray. The metallic sheen will make consumers think of the bright, shiny surfaces that your product can help them achieve. Metallic materials can also help call attention to special warnings or ingredients on more heavy-duty chemical products.

The metallic material's shiny appearance can also be used to bring shimmery products like highlighters and eyeshadow to life as well as skincare products like brightening serums. 


Nutraceutical Product Labels

Metallic Materials

Here at SheetLabels.com, we offer metallic material options for both sheets and rolls. For labels printed on sheets, we offer three metallic options: Silver Foil, Gold Foil, and Silver Matte Polyester Weatherproof. All three of these materials are great choices for creating metallic labels. However, it should be noted that the matte finish of our Silver Matte Polyester Weatherproof material gives off a bit more of a muted, pearlescent look rather than a true metallic. All of these materials work best when used for minimalistic designs with only black or other dark colors on them to allow the metallic material itself to show through as the background. 


If you're looking to print a more intricate or colorful design, we recommend choosing labels on rolls. Our metallic roll material, Silver BOPP, can produce a wide spectrum of metallic colors and can even be used for white ink printing with a vector artwork file. This material is also weatherproof and can withstand prolonged exposure to water, moisture, and outdoor elements.
