I wanted to tell you how great these labels look! They exceeded my expectations, and I’m very pleased with the quality and feel. – Eric, ELM Video Technology, Inc.


How Custom Cover-Up and Blockout Labels Work

Standard label materials are not opaque enough to fully block-out text or images underneath the label.  Whether you need custom cover-up labels for packaging, envelopes, flyers, or magazines, we have several label options that will work for you.

  • A high-gloss paper that has a special opaque barrier – great for labeling items that are mostly used indoors.
  • Metallic paper or film overprinted with white ink (the metallic material acts as an opaque barrier).
  • Opaque film with a dark barrier undercoating is a good choice if you need extremely durable cover-up labels.
