Vivid to show new laminating effects

Vivid Laminating will be showing off new tools and special effects foils at this week’s Print Show at the NEC, UK.

This includes the double-sided 370 Duplex system, which can laminate, foil and create Spot UV-style effects on SRA3 portrait sheets. It’s essentially a smaller format model of the 530 version.

Vivid will also show the Auto Feeder for the 530 models that it launched at Drupa.

Vivid has also developed a new Easycoat gluing system that adds a layer of adhesive to media to make digital prints appear more substantial. Layers can be added one-by-one to create a thick substrate that can be used for applications such as book covers and high quality business cards. There’s a carrier tray, the Easyguide that helps to secure the media in place.

Finally, Vivid has also added new foils to its Boss Premium Foil range, with new finshes such as an over-printable holographic foil and a pure white foil, which essentially replicates the ability to ‘print white’.
