About This Project

Soft Metal is one of the latest products that’s been added to our Mirra Products range. Soft Metal has a matte silver look while having the added feel of TouchMatte. Basically, you could describe Soft Metal as the metallised version of TouchMatte. Its smooth velvety feel has the added benefit of a metal background which gives a beautiful metallic, pearlescent look through the sheet when printed on top. Treated in the same way as ReflectaKote being applied to the whole sheet and then overprinted.


Printing over Soft Metal requires the use of foil/vinyl inks, screen or UV inks we recommend you discuss with your ink supplier what’s the best for you. We have also seen the success of Soft Metal with digital printing devices to find out more contact your local Allkotes team. This one of a kind product can be used on all forms of packaging, magazine and book covers, POS items, presentation folders, business cards and DM pieces.


The quality of the paper or board you select can have an impact on the finish of Soft Metal feel free to discuss your options with your Allkotes team. Soft Metal is opaque so when planning your next job remember the film will lay down first followed by your printing. It’s a good idea to supply overs for us to set up on when running your sheets.


Lighter weights of double-sided coated stocks can be susceptible to static issues during and after the lamination process. This, in turn, can create feeding issues during the printing process. Its recommended stock weight of 170gsm or higher be used and preferably coated one side only. Should you require further advice please contact your Allkotes team.
