Our tactile finish gives a fourth dimension to a design

Why use this effect?

  • Creates a wet look to highlight ‘fresh and cold’ appeal
  • Great for offering consumers a differentiated sensory experience with spot application, creating combinations of smooth and tactile on the can surface
  • Perfect way to highlight certain parts of the can

Things to know

  • The tactile effect is achieved through a combination of ink and varnish adding texture to a design
  • The effect can create the look of little droplets and the feel of fruit skin, emphasizing the freshness of a brand and the ingredients used
  • It is possible to match special colors to a target*
  • Tactile elements should be placed in the main body of the can
  • We recommend design ideas are submitted to ensure the final artwork is feasible*
  • Compatible with cold-fill, but not for pasteurization processes or retort
