Vel-Veeto: “If you want to take your product a bit up-market, I’m your man. Check out these fancy boxes with the real feel of velvet. Your product’s sold before they’ve even opened the package!”

Skins® Vel-Veeto has a proven track record of delivering that high quality velvet feel. In fact, he’s the longest established printable velvet on the market. With excellent colour depth, he makes the most exclusive packaging designs look even more stunning.

Easy to start, consistent, high quality, velvet feel
Skins® Vel-Veeto is easy to start on the press and you can use him with standard equipment. It’s applied in thin layers and high-speed processing is possible.

Print performance
The high transparency and low reflectivity enhances the colour depth, text and image visibility. It gives off very low light reflectivity, which means colours remain true from different angles, like on different height shelves in retail – ideal for packaging luxury products such as jewelry, watches or whiskies.

It can be printed on multiple substrates, like paper, PE, BOPP, aluminum and PET and colors can be given different gloss levels by overprinting. And of course, it can be recyclable, as its waterborne formulation makes it FDA/FCC/Swiss Ordinance compliant. It can also work with UV and solvent-based ink systems, and all without any yellowing or foaming.

As it has a simple starting formulation, it’s a more stable varnish coating. That simple formulation also means it has a broad range of applications, like on flexible films, rigid material, paper and board. And using multiple printing techniques, including flexo and gravure.
