SPGPrints introduces RotaMesh® Glitter Screen for reflective, colour-changing inks on premium labels and packaging
Netherlands, 5 September, 2017: SPGPrints widens the decorative and security options
for premium label and packaging design with the introduction of its RotaMesh®
Glitter Screen, a nickel rotary screen suitable for applying glitter, lustre,
shimmer and optically variable inks.
Guitjens, commercial manager label printing, SPGPrints, comments: “There has
been tremendous innovation in reflective inks that create a range of exclusive
effects, providing an effective way to differentiate brands and enhance
shelf-impact. The new RotaMesh Glitter Screen provides a cost-effective and
productive way to incorporate these effects seamlessly inline, alongside other
processes such as flexo, offset and gravure, and create a distinctive,
appealing packaging presentation.”
Particles for exclusive effects require wide
diameters, typically of approximately 70µm, to enable reflectivity that makes
their functionality possible. RotaMesh Glitter Screen features relatively large
hole sizes to facilitate the smooth transfer to the substrate of these delicate particles, without risk of
blockage, at high printing speeds.
Glitter Screen is available in a range of printing widths up to 914mm. Ideal
for luxury packaging, cosmetics and gift-wrap applications, it is suitable for
numerous synthetic and paperboard substrates including self-adhesive labels,
flexible packaging and folding cartons. Like all rotary screens in the nickel
RotaMesh programme, the new Glitter Screen is both reusable and re-imageable.
RotaMesh Glitter Screen makes its global debut at
Labelexpo Europe 2017 (SPGPrints stand
4C20), where samples showing the screen’s full aesthetic potential will be
