Systems that add special effects during the finishing process give prints that extra ‘wow’ factor. These finishes are typically used on packaging, business cards, stationery, book covers, security print, wedding stationery and high end, bespoke print.
As well as laminating prints, the Matrix Pneumatic & Duplex Systems can also create beautifully finished work using Foils and Special Effect Films.
Special custom-made blocks or dies are normally required to create foiling effects. But with the Matrix, this is achievable due to the adjustable pressure from the pneumatic rollers.
The technology opens up a completely new revenue stream for Matrix users, saving both time and money compared to outsourcing. One-off bespoke jobs and print proofs can now be produced in-house in seconds.
Similar to traditional foiling methods, the process to create these on-demand effects works by using heat transfer technology, but at a fraction of the cost of producing individual dies.
With foils available in Silver, Gold, Copper, Red & Blue and a Clear Gloss Film to create Spot UV-style finishes, using just one system to laminate, foil and Spot UV offers an even greater return on investment, as multiple applications are possible.
