Sustainable & Lightweight Papers, Boards & Films

Your brand can earn a gold star for sustainability utilizing ITW’s environmentally responsible transfer process — EcoShine. Metallization and holographic patterns are applied to papers and paperboards without the use of plastic film carriers for packaging that can be easily recycled using conventional methods. With ITW’s in-house origination capability, custom holographic patterns can be produced as a transfer film, foil paper or foil board — giving you a one-stop solution from design to delivery!

Brilliant new design possibilities abound with custom registered holography for innovative print, label, display and package design. Large format custom holographic patterns and designs are uniquely suited for film, paper and board and provide striking new methods to improve positioning, product identity, brand authenticity and security.
