For more than five decades Louvrette Design & Packaging, has focused on developing to become a recognized European leader in design-oriented plastic packaging. Today the German company is well known for its design projects and the highly sophisticated cosmetic and beauty pieces which it produces.
Laser cutting technology is the art of removing one or more layers of any coating type through the use of a laser impulse. Louvrette can use laser cutting to extract either one of two layers or both layers when required, and according to how the laser is used either a matte or shiny effect is produced. The technique is compatible with any foil that works with Louvrette's lacquers and raw materials.
The result of laser cutting is a creative filigree artwork with an impressive finished look of utmost quality. A further benefit of the technique is that even when a hot foil is used, there are no additional costs for cliché as the pattern is created by the laser.
In the example shown, an opaque coloured piece was matt lacquered then hot foiled and laser cut.
