Bespoke & print-registered holographic lamination film

Bespoke & print-registered holographic lamination film

For truly exclusive packaging design, with maximum visual impact, it is possible to combine a custom-originated holographic pattern with printed graphics in a fusion of light and colour. This type of solution presents exciting possibilities for the packaging designer but also requires close cooperation between supply chain partners to achieve the best results.

Of critical importance is the holographic design itself, where API’s in-house team can provide expert assistance, and subsequent control of production to facilitate tight registration between the print, laminated film and any embossing, where API’s proprietary holographic registration system is of vital importance.

Successful execution depends on the availability of registration control equipment and competence at the lamination and print stages. For greatest assurance, API Laminates provides the leading capability in the industry for registered film lamination.

Bespoke, registered holographic lamination films are available with a silver reflective backing or as a transparent HRI film. API can advise on repeat lengths and the accommodation of shim lines.

Films are chemically treated for print receptivity.
