3 Thermal Laminating MHL High Gloss Silver or MHL Brushed Silver thermal laminating films with metallic finishes can be used alone to mimic the look of metallic media or foil stamping, or printed to mimic the look of metallic inks. The company says the films are especially suited for digital prototype applications. 4 Board with Metallized Coating This package uses Composipac technology from GPI, where LDPE coating is printed, metallized and then laminated to the board. The metalized printing contrasting with the white ink mimics the primary container enhancements, while the glossy and shiny finishes achieved through reversed printing prevents the package from scuffing. w x 5 Metallized Card Stock Masterpiece Graphix now offers Lava, Twinkle and Silver Rain as a new cardstock in the Masterpiece Metallix line. The 12-pt cardstocks are packed in 200, and available in 13x19-in. sheet size. y PACKAGEDESIGNMAG.COM 25 http://www.PACKAGEDESIGNMAG.COM
