As the print market becomes more competitive, Printers are seeking innovative ways to diversify their portfolio, while simultaneously cutting costs and saving money. Offset and Flexo Printers are increasingly investing in Digital technology to take advantage of the opportunities in variable print, short-runs and more. However, as these Converters move into new press technologies, they often acquire the burden of a second or third set of consumables inventory.
As the industry knows, consumables can occupy a large part of your facility. Space is valuable and Printers working with multiple print technologies have to double their inventory for consumables that fit only one type of print process, such as substrates, ink, cold foil, adhesives and more. In the past, cold foil has been no exception. If a client wanted unique holographic accents printed digitally, a Printer would need to purchase a roll of digital-compatible cold foil for the job. Unless another customer came along that requested the same cold foil roll AND printed digitally, that beautiful roll may end up collecting dust or be thrown away to create space for more common cold foil rolls. Although with some consumables this is inevitable, there is now a cold foil formulation in the market invented to maximize your inventory and save you money - KOLDfoil ONE.
What is KOLDfoil ONE?
KOLDfoil ONE is a specially formulated cold foil solution designed with efficient diversification in mind. KOLDfoil ONE is the only cold foil solution in the market with the ability to perform with three different printing applications: Flexo, Digital and Offset. Yes, you read that right - ONE roll of cold foil for THREE printing applications. In addition to its versatility, KOLDfoil ONE boasts the largest inventory of cold foil colors and holographic patterns in the industry. Therefore, Converters utilizing KOLDfoil ONE have access to a wide variety of quality options for their customer’s packaging, regardless of the technology they choose for print.
How KOLDfoil ONE Saves You Money
Converters who have invested in multiple types of printing technologies, Flexo, Offset or Digital, can save money in inventory space and costs with KOLDfoil ONE. Rather than storing two or three cold foil rolls to use on their compatible technologies, Printers using KOLDfoil ONE only need to store ONE roll of cold foil. When they look at their cold foil inventory, they are confident in offering every color or pattern in stock to their customers on any of their cold foil-equipped technologies. No more roll investments sitting on the shelves waiting for a digital, flexo or offset job to come their way. KOLDfoil ONE rolls can be interchanged among machines in no time. A roll wasted is a roll of money wasted too. Thanks to this thoughtful innovation, Printers save money in inventory management, while simultaneously maximizing their roll usability. ONE roll.
