A public grand opening of the K Laser Technology Cold Foil Design Lab is set for winter 2022-23.

“As a supplier of cold foil substrates, our team often becomes the liaison that translates the design between the printer and the designer. When we educate designers on print capabilities and work with printers to meet the expectations of designers, the two can create harmoniously beautiful brand packaging. The Cold Foil Design Lab creates a space to nurture this collaboration to bring more synergy and creativity to sustainable packaging design and technology.” Says Nerissa Ignacio-Littman, Creative Director at K Laser Technology.
