We're pleased to announce the arrival of our brand new digital foiling machine. Stunning visual effects can be created on short print runs and, even better, it's more affordable than the usual 'blocking' technique.

Finishing systems such as foiling and spot UV give print that extra wow factor. These finishes are typically used on packaging, business cards, stationery, book covers and high-end bespoke print.

As good as these techniques look, they can be costly, with most printers having to outsource this specialist work.

Traditional foiling and spot UV methods are expensive for short-run digital print due to the setup involved for each individual job.

The new process is simple and fast, it uses special metallic or clear foils that adhere only to digital dry toner – no blocks required.

The possibilities are endless, with all colours, multi-coloured holographic foil effects, and textures like cracked ice, linen, and woodgrain.

The quality is exceptional, giving the print an unrivalled crispness, and a luxurious look and feel.

Personalisation is even an option, using variable data, so text, graphics and images can all be changed from one printed piece to the next.

So, why not use this effect as part of your branding, or add some oomph to an event invitation or brochure? And with Christmas just around the corner, foil prints will certainly add some festive magic to your print.
