If you want to up the sophistication of your product, matte labels might just be the perfect solution. Because the labels don’t reflect light like glossy labels, they have a more subdued, elegant appearance. You might use them for gourmet foods, jars and bottles. Matte labels also enhance the look of handmade soaps, lotions, and beauty products.
Some customers order matte labels because they are writable. Matte labels are perfect for name tags at an event your business is hosting. Many craft beer companies use matte labels on their growlers to mark the date of the pour.
Additionally, matte labels work well if you’re going for a rustic or vintage vibe. Old timey labels and packaging are trending right now. Matte labels can help you create that subdued, vintage look for your products.
Clear Matte Labels
If you’re looking for a fun, trendy label design, consider using clear matte labels for your product. Clear matte labels with bold, minimalist designs can help your product catch the customer’s eye. The background practically disappears when placed on the product, letting your design stand out.
Clear labels have a translucent look without the high shine of a glossy finish. They appear frosted, rather than completely see through, and work particularly well with packaging that already has a matte finish.
Another benefit of clear matte labels is how they can help with bubbling. Some clear labels have a tendency to bubble when applied, but the finish on clear matte labels is more forgiving.

Matte vs Glossy Stickers
When designing your stickers, you may be wondering about the differences between matte stickers and glossy stickers. Both options provide a durable, high-quality finish for your stickers. Choosing between glossy and matte finishes is a matter of personal preference.
One of the reasons you might order matte stickers is for the subtle look. The matte finishing doesn’t reflect light like a glossy finish would. Colors on matte stickers and labels are more muted. This will often give your stickers a softer look. Because there is no glare, matte stickers may be more readable than glossy stickers. Matte stickers also have a soft feel when you touch them, similar to how satin feels. One huge benefit of matte stickers is how easy they are to write on. Unlike glossy stickers, matte stickers won’t smudge when written on with a sharpie.
Glossy stickers, on the other hand, do have a high-shine finish. The reflection of light gives the colors a more vibrant look, and colors have more contrast. When touched, glossy stickers feel waxy and slippery. This makes it difficult to write on. Permanent markers will easily smudge on glossy stickers.
