Foil printed labels: more than metallic!

Foil labels are more than just gold and silver!When people think of foil printed labels, they think of shiny, metallic colours (usually silver and gold), holographic finishes and glamorous product labels. However, foil labels can be printed in more than the standard gold and silver! There are a wide range of matt and metallic colours available from blues, greens, oranges and pinks and more! You can view our list of standard label colours or request a custom colour. With their durable, high impact finish, foil labels are often used for product but foil labels are also great for service labels that won't be overlooked.

Foil labels can be printed on papers, vinyls and other synthetic materials with either removable or durable adhesive to last depending on your request and labeling application or environment. Labels can be made to any custom shape or size but we have thousands of standard label shapes and sizes to suit your labeling needs. If you’re ready to print, you can get a foil label quote from us here. Alternatively, if you have any questions regarding foil label printing you can contact us online now or phone 1800 111 766.

Daycon ordered a new label machine Daco SR410 slitter rewinder at Labelexpo in Europe last year and we are happy to announce that it has arrived and is now in full production in our Gold Coast label factory.  The new slitter and rewinder combination means an even faster turn around time for all your cut stock orders. 

Troy our Director of Daycon, label manufacturer on the Gold Coast said "Really very impressed with the new arrival and it is running smoothly as expected".  Though Troy says confidently that he would expect nothing less from our log time partner Daco Solutions — their label manufacturing equipment offer both flexibility and high performance.

About label sizes and shapes

Labels come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. A  label die is the part of the label machine that cut the label from the label material. These are inserted into a label manufacturing machine - either flexographic or foil print to produce the desired shape.

Some of the Daycon Flexo Plates which create the shape of your labels

At Daycon Distributors we have a huge library of shaped label dies that we can use to make your labels. If we don't have the correct size or shape for your needs, Daycon Distributors can make the label die to suit your label shape specification.  

These are typical foil printing dies - we have huge library of dies for foil printing.

We ordered a Daco SR410 Slitter Rewinder at Labelexpo Europe and it's almost here!

Daycon Distributors are long-time user of Daco Solutions label machinery, so we jumped at the opportunity to update our slitter and rewinder this year with Daco Solutions new SR410. Our new SR410 will be on the ground within the week!

As a trade printer we need reliable equipment with quick and easy setups, I am glad to say that we have found a perfect partner in Daco Solutions. Their products are not only reliable and easy to use but are a very cost effective when compared to some of the better known manufacturers in the industry.

Our business has grown significantly and we have invested in a Daco Combi turret rewinder with rotary die cutting, a Daco SI inspection / slitter rewinder and the latest order for a Daco SR410.

The only way we can absorb some of the costs and increases we have been faced with is to take labour out of the process and the Combi turret certainly did this for us intitially. We always had a backlog in the rewinding from our Edale Alpha and again we turned to Daco for a rewinder after looking around at other manufacturers. Just the simplicity, price and performance of the Daco SI machine in reality made it an easy decision.

So once again we have again turned to Daco for the SR410 rewinder. Our Daco D250 rotary die cutting machine is used for the shorter run die cutting jobs and the rotary dies from our Edale Alpha fit directly into the machine which is a great advantage to Daycon Distributors.
