Metallic laminating film – not just for Christmas
Print Solutions Packaging Solutions
KDX has introduced dedicated UK stock of its speciality Glitter and Metallic films – ideal for luxury print and packaging, gift tags and cards, boxes, point of sale and book covers.
Premium Brushed (Gold/Silver/Copper) gives a textured, stainless steel look and finish, the surface shows a very distinctive eye catching effect. Premium Metalised (Gold/Silver) gives a metallic lustre, reflective and mirror like surface and Premium Glitter (Silver/Gold) thermal films have a uniformed glitter surface effect similar to metal sand blasting.
The films are designed to be laminated directly to the printed board and then printed using offset UV and converted separately. The surface is also highly suitable for UV Varnish, embossing and foil blocking for maximum impact. The Premium Glitter film will not drop particles, and gives a non-directional, uniform glitter effect which allows smooth running and eliminates production issues associated with ‘shedding’ of traditional glitter. Laminating films are available in bespoke sizes with sample rolls available in 440 mm and 630 mm widths x 200 metres, ideal for shorter runs, one off orders or trial product testing and customer samples.
Michel Diruy, general manager KDX Europe, commented: ‘These laminating films can really add distinction to print, luxury packaging, boxes, book covers, stationery, bags and point of sale. And by expanding the range of finishes customers are telling us they are getting vital differentiation from their competitors who may only offer more traditional gloss and matt finishes. Now we stock these products for the UK we are able to offer next day delivery and support customers with trial rolls; all backed up by our UK expertise and sales support team.’
