Give Your Label A Raise: Special Effect UV Coatings

The Brewhouse Pumpkin Ale label with tactile coating, grit coat, and foiling

Special effect UV or ultraviolet coatings are growing in popularity, due to their ability to give an otherwise ordinary label a distinct look and feel. So, what exactly are special effect UV coatings? These unique raised or embossed coatings are high-viscosity (high resistance to flow) and when applied to a thickness over 5mils, the coating not only provides amazing protection, it also brings your label to life, with a dramatically raised texture.
