Printbar Uncovered’s Digital ‘Screen’ White application wrapper overcomes the challenges of screen

A high opacity white can enhance a label in a variety of ways. It is an enabler for detailed, vibrant label designs that evoke quality and luxury.

For label production, rotary screen has been the preferred choice – the high opacity, brightness, flatness and distinctive ‘raised feel’ provides the aesthetic visual and tactile quality that lifts a brand to the next level.

However market factors from reduced print runs, increasing setup costs and an ever-increasing demand for quality is driving converters to look for alternatives.

Printbar Uncovered’s Digital ‘Screen’ White application wrapper overcomes these challenges whilst delivering the high opacity, quality finish required.
