Austrian label converter Insignis received the Finat Label Award in the category ‘Label Printing Processes – Combination Printing’. The winning ‘Frizzante’ label was produced for the local winery Weingut PayerPayer and was printed and converted on a Gallus Labelfire press.
It was Insignis’ first time taking part in the Finat label competition. The label was selected because of the aesthetic effect emphasized through the state-of the art printing and embellishing processes used for this high-value product.
The awarded self-adhesive label was printed on the Gallus Labelfire, a hybrid press which enables one-pass production. First, the cold foil Micro Glitter Silver was applied in a color gradient from 0-100 percent. Then it was the digitally printed process in seven colors in the Heidelberg Digital Print Unit (DPU) before the varnishing in the flexo printing unit took place. Here the soft touch lacquer was applied all over. Afterwards partial relief lacquer was applied digitally again in the Digital Embellishment Unit (DEU) which is included on the Gallus Labelfire at the Insignis production plant.
‘Our strength is the perfect match of creativity and innovation as well as of design and technology,’ said Insignis managing director Erwin Pudek.
