Opaque White Inks for Labels

For brilliant, high-impact colors: opaque white inks

Opaque white inks allow for colorfast printing on substrates that would not otherwise be white enough. Using white inks over foil substrates affords designers the opportunity to create toned effects using solid or transparent colors where white is not the primary color used to achieve the maximum effect. Additionally, white inks can serve as a base that improves the overall opacity and contrast of other colors.
