What’s Trending: Metallic Copper
When it comes to metallics, the first thing that comes to mind is rose gold, silver and brass. However, there is a new metallic swatch that is rapidly gaining in popularity for 2017’s fall season and will continue into winter 2018. We know this swatch as metallic copper.
When compared to the warmer metallic tones like rose gold and brass, metallic copper stands out with more of a rugged, earthy feel. Copper can be used in a variety of ways to highlight your designs with embellishments like grommets, studs, zipper pulls and buckles while giving your high fashion packaging a seasonal, yet elegant feel.
Metallic copper also pairs well with wood, earthy tones, natural fabrics and materials like cotton, kraft paper, jute, pp non woven and muslin. Combine these materials with copper hot stamping, glitter, custom printing, embroidery or interior printing to give your packaging a hand-crafted, unique feel that is perfectly tailored to your brand.
If you want to create your own unique packaging collection, use this trend alone or combine it with other metallics or colors from Pantone's 2018 color trend forecast that will add some extra style to your packaging.
