Metallic papers are available in matte and glossy finishes and can also feature smooth or crumpled textures. Although metallic paper is most popular for its elegant shimmering glimmer, it also offers protective features to your products. The aluminum effectively reflects light and repels moisture, making this material and ideal candidate for products such as pharmaceuticals that may be light or moisture sensitive.
