Abbotprint gets creative with AccurioShine 3600 with iFoil One for short run embellished greeting cards

Print Solutions

East Sussex based Abbotprint has selected the Konica Minolta AccurioShine 3600 press with iFoil One to produce embellished greeting cards in short runs and for specialist jobs. By taking advantage of digital print technology, Abbotprint is benefiting from greater flexibility, ease of setup and value for money. 


Director and owner Brian Frost commented, ‘The new solution allows us to move a lot of our thermography work to the AccurioShine 3600. We are picking up new low volume work and can be more creative in the design and finishes offered on greeting card design, using the embellishment options of the AccurioShine 3600.’


A key advantage of the digital high end embellishment device is the cost savings versus conventional methods of thermographic varnishing and foiling. Equally important has been the increased speed of turnaround, enabling the company to be highly competitive. Combined, this means Abbotprint can increase revenue and profits by opening new lines of business. 


The new solution fits in well with the company’s existing litho, digital, thermographic varnishing and conventional foiling equipment, as Brian explained, ‘With no need to worry about dies, the customer just sends the artwork and we can easily produce bespoke samples as required. We can also transfer sheets from our AccurioPress 12000 and use them on the AccurioShine 3600 to add embellishment.’


Brian added, ‘Interest in our highly flexible offering using the AccurioShine 3600 with iFoil One has been huge – it really makes us stand out in the market because of its abilities and high quality results! We can offer new options to smaller greeting card publishers on stricter budgets. This flexibility has proven to be vital for a UK customer who had a request from a German stockist wanting designs in German. They can now supply this with no additional costs.’
