How to Customize Holographic Mylar Bags | DigitalHeat FX 8432

Packaging is extremely important in any products promotion and sale and is considered the first consumer “touch” of a company. Mylar bags are one of the most popular customized products, providing businesses the opportunity to professionally advertise their brand. Custom Holographic Mylar bags stand out as one of the hottest trends in the retail market.  The holographic material adds an eye-catching finish to create a lasting impression with customers.  

How are Holographic Mylar Bags Different?

A Holographic Mylar bag stands out from the regular run-of-the-mill Mylar bag, with dramatic fluorescent rainbow effects that give the bag an almost three-dimensional look. Holographic Mylar bags sparkle and shine and when customized can make logos and design pop.  

How to Customize Hologram Mylar Bags

Customizing Holographic Mylar bags utilizes the same techniques as ordinary Mylar bags. However, design/layout can differ.  

If the design was created to cover the entire Mylar bag, the holographic layer will not show through. To truly take advantage of the holographic material a design will need negative space. Creating a design that only partially covers the Mylar bag will allow the holographic film to be displayed.
