Metal effects – create attraction with metal look 

Metal effects on packaging provides a sense of luxury and supports your product image by setting it apart from competition. AR Packaging provides a multitude of metal transfer technologies;  from inline applied coldfoil, sheet-to-sheet or reel-to-reel hotfoil with register for lenses, over transfer metallisation to our unique Galaxy printed metal solution. The choice is end-less and there are many alternatives for minimised environmental impact. 

Metal effects are often used on packaging solutions for beauty & cosmetics, confectionery, coffee, tobacco and personal care products. Why not combine the metal look with embossing or window-patching to further elevate the consumer experience? We are more than happy to develop a tailormade solution in close collaboration with our customers.
