Matte Paper

Matte Paper for Labeling

Matte paper is one of the popular materials used in roll-label printing. The non-glossy surface of the paper is perfect for printing intricate designs, as it reduces the glare that can make labels difficult to read. Matte paper also has a more natural, organic look and feel than other types of paper, which can be particularly appealing for brands that want to convey a more environmentally friendly or down-to-earth image. However, Matte Paper is not a suitable choice for labels that will be exposed to high levels of humidity, as the paper can become saturated and the ink may bleed or smudge. Please note that our printing UV inks are shiny and if the label design covers the whole label with colorful, vivid artwork in that case you won’t get a matte look.

All surface finishing options (gloss, matte laminations, UV Varnish, etc.) are available for Matte Paper material. However, gloss lamination or gloss UV varnish makes using Matte paper pointless.
