Why FSC Certification is Important to Us

Today, the term sustainable development has become an integral part of any business activity. Businesses are focusing more on providing environmentally friendly products by using eco-friendly materials in processes or as finished products. No business should ever claim that it uses environmentally friendly products unless it is backed by some certification. If a business does make a claim without having any certification, customers don’t often take the business’s word for it. An FSC certification is an important certificate provided by Forest Stewardship Council, which is an international non-profit organization established in 1993. Being FSC certified shows that your business complies with the highest social and environmental standards on the market.

For those of us at Jet Label, FSC certification is very important to us – and here’s why.

Foil and Embossing: A Strategic Way To Design Labels

Foil stamping and embossing spell “luxury label design” like no other. With the help of modern design techniques and trends, foil & embossing can compliment any kind of brand and give it an upscale look.

Embossing to Create Texture

Embossing is the perfect technique for creating texture. Embossing a label helps create a soft yet super tactile texture that will impress your customers. The use of texture can be elegant, fun or simple. For a fun brand, use polka dots, stripes or stars. For a more elegant feel, try a filigree. When using an emboss over a larger space on your label, you may even go rather simple for the rest of your design because the texture will create a beautiful complexity.
