Anlac’s Metallized Label Dazzles
The Vietnamese company’s entry won Gold at the Asian Packaging Excellence Awards 2019.
Anlac Labels JSC (Anlac) is a regular in the Asian Packaging Excellence Awards competition. This year, the company won Gold for their entry in Labels Letterpress Process. The company also took home the Bronze in Labels Flexographic Process. The company has participated in the competition 11 times, and has consistently won awards each year.
“It is our privilege to win the awards this year, thank you!” said Mr Nguyen Ngoc Minh Thy, director of Anlac Labels JSC. “It is a real validation to the achievements and strong development of Anlac Labels.”
The title of their winning Gold entry is “Colgate Cam Kit 100% 110G”. The label was used for a promotional campaign in Vietnam. Using a Gallus machine, the labels were printed on a metallized box, in order to enhance the eye-catching metallized effect.
The client required Anlac to be able to produce the labels within the tight marketing promotion timelines. Anlac was able to accomplish this with short lead-time production, while still achieving an attractive metallized appearance.
In producing the award-winning entry, Anlac faced some challenges. The team had to factor in different substrates used between the white paper proofs and the final metallized labels. Furthermore, Anlac had to figure out how to choose a suitable opaque half-tone for the label in order to create an attractive and harmonious appearance. The team also had to ensure that the final label is identical to the offset-printed box.
In 2001, Anlac became one of the first flexography printing companies in Vietnam, having installed a European printer in their site.
“As a professional labels solutions provider, Anlac will accompany you to develop unique and effective products,” said Mr Nguyen. “We have worked with leading companies in Vietnam and globally for nearly 20 years.”
