Antibacterial Laminates from Nobelus - PaperSpecs

Spotlight: Nobelus

Not so long ago all you had to worry about when it came to designing pieces like packaging and business cards was what they looked like and how well they stood up to repeated handling. How times have changed.

In today’s hygiene-focused world, clients are hyper-sensitive to the safety of these and other high-touch items, which is why you need to know about two new antibacterial laminates from Nobelus. Not only do they significantly reduce surface bacteria on the pieces you create, but they also accept the popular finishing techniques you rely on to make your work the best it can be.

Two Ways to Sanitize Your Designs

Nobelus has always been all about giving you intriguing options when it comes to laminate films – think LuxeFilm FineLeather and FineLinen to name but a couple.

Now they bring you two new antibacterial films that will give your clients added peace of mind while offering enhanced visual and tactile appeal. Both:

  • Are easily cleaned; just use soap and water and eliminate most common bacteria
  • Accept offset, UV and screen printing
